Overall, this was a surprisingly good St Claire book. After reading the 1st 5 pages, I thought this book was going to be a yawner. I’m glad I continued reading on b/c it got much better. The action-suspense was exciting & not so predictable. Romance was sexy, intense, & well-developed. Sexual chemistry & love scenes were hot. It made for a fast read.
The main characters both had realistic & bigger-than-life elements. Heroine was smart & independent. I really liked her courage, practicality, & wisdom in moving on with her life instead of dropping everything in her life to wait for Hero’s questionable legal status to get absolved. She was no doormat. Hero was an alpha-male who used his talents for bad in the past but now determined to use it for better. I could feel his desire to do it right this time around. His attraction & love for heroine served to increase his motivation.
