I was so excited to read this one. I love romantic suspense books and as soon as I received this, I couldn’t wait to start it. Alas, I couldn’t. I had other books to read first. But every time I opened my kindle, I thought of this book.
So I’m really happy that this lived up to my romantic suspense expectations.
I was hooked from page one. I really liked Spencer and Kat. I loved their bickering banter that they had at the beginning. And their history was rich. It was easy to see that they still had strong feeling for each other despite being apart for a year.
I thought they also worked well together. And I loved Kat’s description of Spencer:
TREX Special Agent Spencer Allen. Dominantly male. Highly sexual. He commanded authority with nothing more than a smoldering look from those destructive gray eyes.
However, as much as that was the perfect description for Spencer when he was with Kat, it didn’t totally describe him. Or rather, he didn’t completely live up to it. Not when he was with his boss. Spencer says it himself a little while later:
Spencer stilled as his blood cooled. Goddamn Weber for having the authority to do exactly that. And goddamn himself for not having the balls to tell him to take this job and shove it up his ass.
And I kept thinking that for a guy that was so “dominantly male” he wasn’t acting like that. And it’s not like he wouldn’t be able to find another job. He’s that good at what he does.
What really ticked me off was Weber telling Spencer what he could and couldn’t do during his downtime. Weber had a lot of nerve to tell Spencer that he would lose his job if he started seeing Kat again. I wanted to go all Dexter on Weber for that. I was already on the fence with Weber but that pushed me over the edge. I hated him from then on.
But I was standing up and cheering when Spencer told his boss off and that he was going to be with Kat no matter what. That’s the alpha I knew him to be!
Another person I hated…Kat’s partner/colleague Travis. I thought he as creepy and stalkerish in the beginning with the way he reacted to the mere presence of Spencer. I wanted to drop kick him for being such a creep.
Oh, and I won’t give the bad guy away, but I have to say, I was really glad to see Kat’s vampire come out
“I can't move. The b-bastard took all my c-clothes and tied m-me to a t-tree. Since you haven't already k-killed him, I get dibs. You just have t-to come f-find me, first.”
The end of the book was action packed and I was both happy and sad that it was the end. Happy because I could wait to see how it all played out and sad because I didn’t want it to end.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone that loves romantic suspense books. This is a must read!
