Book Description: There’s no best-by date for revenge.
Wealthy and beautiful Shay Lassiter runs a prestigious foundation, but her connections and resources were worthless when her fiancé tried to murder her. Now, she’s guarding her heart and using her knack for reading people’s intentions – both good and evil – to guide her. But when the foundation’s clients start dying, she must turn to the new man in her life…one who’s giving her mixed signals.
Computer specialist and ex-cop Roman Chandler has a secret. It involves Shay and could ruin the fragile relationship he’s building with her. Though he can’t tell her the truth, he needs to convince her to trust him. He fears that whoever is behind this is about to turn his vengeance on Shay…
And vengeance can be deadly
Captivation: I continue to read on, despite the disappointment of the 3rd book of the series… my sole motivation at this time is to read the 7th book. There were parts of this book that caught my attention, but it didn’t last long. I took a lot of breaks reading this book, more than I do normally.
Sizzle: I did not really find much sizzle here. There was one scene that read more like a quickie and another b-rated. Really, this series is a cross between a chic lit and romance.
Romance: I found the relationship between the main characters in this one quite frustrating. There seems to be a pattern with this series books where there is tension and a lot of doubting and then suddenly everything makes sense and is fine. Not a lot of development.
Enjoyment: This one just didn’t catch my interest. This was more a means to an end for me, in my effort to get to and through book 7 (Stefen’s story). The end is catching and I read it enthusiastically, however, it didn’t make up for the mediocre beginning and middle.
Literacy: I found quite a lot of word, spelling, and grammatical errors in this one. It was distracting enough that I would pause, shake my head, and set the book aside for a bit before willingly going back to it.
Overall, This book just wasn’t to my taste. The lacking build of character, relationship, and editorial errors was just too much for me. This book will be on my eh. Shelf, though I’ll make a note in the 2nd book (along with my notes regarding books 3 and 4) to read the end if I want a refresher. The last 3 chapters pretty much tells the whole story and holds the interesting value.
