Catch Me if You Can: ALPHA Squadron, Book 1

Ex-FBI sniper Shane Quincy is just trying to survive one day to the next since his wife's death two years ago - a death he blames himself for.

When Shane Quincy saves her life, she has no choice but to tell him who she's running from, even though she knows it'll make him the mob's next target.

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    "Eh, Mediocre"

    Three stars is a generous rating - 2 1/2 is more accurate.

    Catch Me is a formulaic girl-needs-rescuing-from-super-hunk-with-tortured-past story that is not particularly well or poorly written. The daughter of a dead mob boss goes on the run from her mob uncle with an ex-soldier, ex-FBI hunk. The two, of course, 'cannot' have a relationship but nonetheless fall into bed and fall into love within a day or two of meeting.

    It has one twist at the end, but is otherwise entirely predictable. I wasn't invested in the characters so it didn't have much punch. The characters had pasts, but no depth. No interests or personality quirks - or personalities for that matter. I couldn't come to care about these two flat characters, in a predicable story, based on an overly used premise.

    Overall, it's better than nothing, but keep looking if you have time.

    "tired story, bad dialogue"

    This is an ho hum listen if you get it on $5 sale from an author who has written other more solid works. There is some suspense with the save-the-girl-who-is-target-from-the-mob-theme and of course the wounded warrior looking for redemption. But the dialogue and movement of the relationship is choppy, unsophisticated, and at times hackneyed. I began to suspect that this might have been the first published work from this author.

    The female lead is written to be somewhat disappointing, in her illogic with blaming him with morning-after regret in a petty (albeit short)conversation. After being on the run for less than two days, they somehow have both internally "realized" they are in love with the other. I realize in such a short novel that things have to move quickly, but it was jarring to me and I had to force myself to stick with it and not move to my next book in the queue. I stuck it out till four and half hours into it when the dialogue was something out of a 1970s Harlequin.

    The reader was on dragging slow-mo for the first hour or so, and I had a hard time not focusing on his delivery and listening to the words and following the flow of the story. While it got better mid-way thru, it did not add to enjoyment but more of a distraction.

    Don't waste a credit on it. Risk $5 if you are hard pressed, but only if you like very abbreviated sex (kiss to morning after in two sentances).
