I heard that Tess Gerritsen is a very good writer and checked out her books a few times, but I found that she writes psychological thrillers and was not interested in the genre. Then the Kindle Daily offered a romantic suspense written by Tess and here was my chance to sample her writing.
Well it was a disappointment.
The characters are shallow especially Cleo who not only suffers from low self – esteem (I am not good enough for him; he is better off without me…, which I have to agree with) but also puts herself and people around her in danger.
Jordan, when asked what he does, described himself as a “gentleman”. An occupation that allows him to dabble in light thievery and break in. Hence the faithful meeting – Cleo it seems has the same interest in breaking into the same house at the same time.
I also question the wisdom of the Hero when he utilizes government and personal resources to save her, when she is the one whose actions endangered them all.
The Prologue had a promise but the plot at times was boring. There was one interesting twist and although it should have been obvious when it was revealed I did not see it coming.
The narration by Zoe Winslow was good.
2 stars for the book.
