The blurb on Amazon is VERY intriguing.
The story itself though didn't deliver as I had hoped *sad face*
This was the first book I have read from this author so their writing style was unknown to me but I felt this story was just a skimmed version of what it could of been. I was waiting to be thrown into suspense, action, and a whirlwind of contradicting emotions. I mean, who wouldn't be a wreck finding themselves in the hands of an organized crime family? Jane didn't seem to be. At first she seemed very distraught and scared but within hours of being a captive it was almost like she was nonchalant about the whole deal. There were back and forth moment of when she would appear scared but the next cracking jokes and flirting. She even mentioned Stockholm, which I had to laugh out loud about. That was not the case. I couldn't get a hold on the girl as a reader to relate to her.
There were also some loopholes and moments that made me do a double take. One of them involved a horrible incident with Jane and John mentions locking his door and how he usually don't but throughout the book he is always clicking that lock. Maybe not to be interrupted during their multiple passionate moments *wink*
The flow was there and the book was a quick read. Not a lot of depth and a good in between book when you need a change in genres and to give your mind a rest before the next read. There is definitely chemistry and steam between the two main characters that will make you blush.
Overall is wasn't a bad book, but just missing some crucial elements for me personally that would take it to the next level.
3.25 *WINK* READ
