Publisher's Summary

RITA Award Winner, Best Contemporary Single Title, 2000

When Alessandra Lamont is nearly blown to pieces in a mafia hit, the last thing she wants is to place her trust into the hands of sexy, loose-cannon federal agent Harry O'Dell, who'll do whatever it takes to bring the mob down - even if it means sticking like glue to this blonde bombshell who unwittingly married into it.

She needs him if she wants to stay alive, and he needs her if he is to exact his revenge for the death of his wife and son. But staying alive is nothing next to the explosive attraction that threatens to consume them both - and places them into the greatest danger of all...falling in love.

©1999 Suzanne Brockmann (P)2008 BBC Audio

akward early effort

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I am a big fan of Brockmann's other books -- especially the last five or so SEAL Team series. On that basis, I thought I'd try this novel, one of her early (earliest?) efforts. Everybody starts somewhere, after all.

This is not a bad novel, but it is awkward and strained in tone, and the characters are less well rounded than those in later books. The narrator handled all the different regional and social dialects well.

Somehow it just didn't gel for me.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Hmmm. I'd rather see Izzy Zanella on a big screen, I think.

Excellent Story

Well written and a great ending. As always a Brockmann book is worth reading. Worth the money.

Good performance, but predictable

I started with a blonde bombshell, who acted dumb. I finished with a better perception, but not by much. Story was predictable. Harry was just as stupid as Ali

Really good and Enjoyable

I don’t like the crime story books but this was not the usual story. I really enjoyed the story an the sub story. Any book that holds my attention like this one is a must read. Just could not put it down.

Good story but dragged out

The story was good, however, it was dragged out. Also the sound quality varied and then randomly when there was 1 hour and 15 minutes left in the book, a voice announced “disc 8”. I believe it was an editing error

One big cliche

This book is a series of cliches, right down to the female character’s “lips like wine.” The whole thing reads like a Hollywood B
Movie—heavy on the sex, the vulgarity and the eye candy. Engaging plot and characterization are AWOL.
