"All Night Long." It started out keeping my interest, but it is definitely more about the mystery than the romance. The characters were just not that engaging (one-dimensional), and once began to take any shape at all, I still couldn't have cared less about them (very cardboard). At the point the author relegated the romance of the story to a "slam the door in my face," read as well . . . there just wasn't anything left to keep my interest (and this was coming off of JoAnn Ross's "Freefall" which blew my hair back with all that was going on in that book from the get-go). At one point, the hero is unknowingly sucked into an "intervention" set up by his family that insists the PTSD he suffers from is so overwhelming that he needs serious "help" and in-patient counseling. While this is going on, the hero is so laid back and patient with them . . . he was the epitome of "coolness" itself. Huh? In fact, the author portrays his family like a bunch of nitwit nut cases, and he seems to be the ONLY normal one in the room! The premise was so stupid at this point -- I DNF'd it! I didn't care what the solution to the mystery was, nor whether this couple got together in the end. [*YAWN*:]

Rane *laughs* Loved your review K.! I loved this one part:

I think he was popping pills before this meeting! ;P
