If you want a super quick read on the beach, this might work for you. There is lots of action, a lost kids, confrontations at gun point, a bit of shooting, a mob boss, a scene where the woman walks in on the man getting into the shower and stares below his belt for a few minutes while he responds physically, some "Awww" moments where the kid is sweet and the mom is teary-eyed etc......
But if you are looking for anything more that fictional fast food, this will not work for you.
The lead character is a judge. Something happens in his courtroom and he jumps into action like a ninja and kills a guy and saves the day. Oh, did I mention he is handsome? Did I mention he is the youngest Federal judge ever appointed. He is a karate expert? He has guns and is proficient? He can get shot in the leg and still run around? He is off alone on a mountain top communing with nature when he hears a kid whimper and rescues her..... I am only half way through and I imagine he cures cancer toward the end.
The woman is, of course, red haired and beautiful. She just happens to be a great shot. She can drive like a demon. She finds the kid before teams of professionals do. She assumes the judge is the monster who kidnapped the kid, but then she is ready to marry him fifty pages and two days later because he is so good with the kid. Her dad is a mob boss, who she has defied repeatedly even though he is very controlling and angry but then gives in to her. Her mom raised her in Italy. She attended Vassar........
The kid is five. The kid is so traumatized she can not talk, until suddenly a week later she can not only talk but defend the main character with lengthy sentences. Did I mention she is a musical genius who at five plays Mozart so well everyone is the crowd at the music store is stunned. She talks like she is ten or twelve. I think the kid gets knocked unconscious by getting literally hit on the head and drugged a few times during the month or so this story runs and she bounces right back!!She is traumatized because of the kidnapping but comes around from sheer terror to pretty normal in a week or so because the main character is nice and feeds her cheerios. By the end of the book, she will probably take out a professional sniper at one hundred yards.
All the characters are stereotypes from Romance novels. If you have read her other work, you will recognize the scenes and even some of the lines from other books. Psychos always want to "lick" the kidnapped person; people get hit on the head hard enough to pass out for hours but then bounce back within minutes; the main character has suffered some trauma or nightmare and so retreats to an isolated location, someone who is a close friend of a major character ends up being one of the really bad guys.
Again, if you want a twinkie for a beach read, this may do it for you.
