I liked the premise of the machine which isn't the standard war tool or bomb. Brian, the hero, is sent to catch Emily and her brother. It's only obvious that she'll get caught since he's a professional, but what he does with her isn't typical. Instead it's sweet, a trifle whimsical, and (as always with Maureen's books) absolutely charming.
If you're looking for drawn-out angst of "do I love him"/"do I love her" go somewhere else. These character know their own minds and hearts and are ready to seize it with both hands as true love should. That's a refreshing change from the artificially drawn out love affairs of today's popular dramas and I'm so glad.
All in all, a wonderful read. Go ahead and one-click this one... you won't be sorry.
On the plus side, Colin, Emily & Brian were all characters that I cared about. I liked that Brian got along with Colin and Ben.
On the minus side, there were a few places where things happened that surprised me - and felt like a huge, unexplained leap. Like how did anyone surprise Brian by getting into the "safe place" they were in, without him hearing? That was just pretty bizarre to me. Right in the middle of his sentence?
Also, at the end, there was no explanation of how they got out of the situation they were in. One minute we were in the office, in the middle of the fight, and the next minute at home, and it was over.
Emily Brennen is an engineer at the same company and so is her brother, Colin, who is mildly idiot savant, and a genius. She steals his plans from the company because Colin knows not only are his plans incomplete, but the machine is dangerous. She doesn't want to see anyone hurt, and neither does her brother. What they don't count on is how merciless one member of the corporation is, or what lengths he will go to in order to retrieve what was stolen.
The accident was a act of kismet; two people who were meant to be together get their chance. Their connection is instant, a moment out of time. What starts out to be a case of retrieval for Brian, becomes a race against time to save her, and her brother. With his body still suffering from its limitations from the accident, will he be strong enough to pull all of them through alive? He feels so much for Emily, and hopes she feels the same. Will they get their chance when it's all over?
I was really impressed with this novel. The action never stops, and though you're pretty sure the ending is going to be a good one, you aren't really certain how the hero is going to pull it off. Although there are no love scenes, there is plenty of sensual tension, and several toe-curling kisses. Thank you Ms. Miller for a very entertaining read! Very highly recommended!
