My 1st Griffin book & I liked it! Although this book was heavier on the action-suspense side, the romance was still good. Even the appearances of both main character's exes didn't detract from the romance. Sexual chemistry was good. Love scenes were not detailed but still captured their passion. The action-suspense part was engaging & not all too predictable. I usually find commitment-shy, independent, & gun-toting heroines annoying & cold but Griffin didn't strip off heroine's feminine or vulnerable side. WOnderful writing.
