Instalove to the Nth degree

It's not revealing anything to say the Texas Ranger kisses the unconscious senator - that she just met - out of adoration because it happens in the first 10 minutes or so. I wish I could read an adventure romance that put the adventure first. Honestly, when the characters fall in love in the first 30 seconds I feel a little nauseous. And then the MC describes Mexican immigrants as "illegals" and I was done. I read these books for relaxation, this is not relaxing.

great narrator

Quit after 12 chapters. Good novel draft. Characters need more development and all the action is off the page. Republican politics, FYI.

I did not finish this yet

So here us my assessment of this book so far. I like the premise if the story overall but stopped listening on chapter 18 as I could never tell the 2 main characters apart. This really suprised me as I have listened to Victoria Mei before and always felt she did well. This is an older novel so maybe that is why. I do want to finish this story at some point but need to put ut down and move onto another book for now.

I struggle with this narrator. Good book overall, though.

I was caught up in the story. Suspenseful enough to hold my interest. Parts of it felt rushed, however, and I’m not sure how much was due to the narration. I had to rewind often to get a sense of how much time had passed. It wasn’t always obvious. Also, I was often confused as to who was speaking. The voices weren’t consistent.
It’s possible it would translate differently if reading instead of listening. Still not a waste of time. Pretty good book overall.

Political propaganda

Unfortunately the story was good but too much politics. This story features, a what I assume to be, a Trump supporting Republican senator who is working on building a wall, curbing immigration, and passing a anti same sex marriage bill and don’t ask don’t tell policy. In the end she reverses her opinion on marriage equality and don’t ask don’t tell policy (after she falls in love and wants to get married) but still references how important building a wall is. Also, she says things like illegal immigrants are stealing American jobs. Wade makes Mexico seem Like it’s full of drug cartels and murderers. She even went as far as making the protagonist say that shooting people crossing the border was something that she wanted to pass. I love Wade’s books but this one was a no go for me due to too much political view points. Glad this wasn’t my first of her books otherwise I would’ve never read anymore of her books. This usually isn’t her MO so I was a bit surprised.

Unless I know that I’m reading a political article or book, I prefer my nonfiction books to not show the political viewpoints of the author.
