This Reece book was not as good as [[ASIN:0345517784 No Chance]] & [[ASIN:0345517741 Last Chance (Last Chance Rescue Trilogy 2, Book 3)]]. The suspense was predictable & romance was awkward. I thought that starting a romance while frantically looking for your kidnapped 4-year-old twins seemed distasteful & took away from the sensuality of the romance. I understood the first sex scene b/c it was more of an escape from & release of major tension for heroine. But the other times where she kept on pursuing semi-reluctant Hero was disconcerting. I felt embarrassed for her.
Heroine often displayed poor social judgment & looked stupid b/c of it. She appeared strong & independent but she was actually emotionally weak & dependent on Hero & his rescue team. She was smart to choose the right people to help her find her kids but she needed their rescuing herself & she got it time & time again. I thought Hero's guilt over accidentally killing her husband while drugged & over her kids' being abducted was misplaced. He was over-responsible. His guilt & frequent rejection of heroine's advances seemed over the top. There was a lot about this book that was over the top. The romance was sappy & the main characters were either over-responsible or overly stupid.
Overall, it's not a bad book. But compared to other Reece books, this one didn't hold as well.
