We met the heroine, Vivi Angelino, two books ago (and loved every bit of her as a secondary character), but in her own book, we find out there's much more to her than meets the eyes. When she offers herself to be a body double to Oscar winner actress she looks remarkably alike, after the winners for the two previous years were murdered, Vivi finds herself neck deep into an investigation that goes far beyond the glitter and glamour of Hollywood, and crosses a the boundary of very personal to herself, and she'll risk her own life to stop the bad guys and make sure justice is met. In this book, it felt to me that every page we uncovered layers of Vivi, things we might never have imagined from her tough girl, kick ass attitude, but, to me, the more I saw of her, the more I loved and admired her character.
Then, there's hero, goody-two-shoes FBI Agent Colton Lang, whom we find to have deep reasons for his rule follower façade. He's against the idea of Vivi taking the case from the start (but, of course, as typical Vivi, she goes against him anyway), but he knows when she wants something, nothing can keep her from it, and realizes trying to stop her is useless, so, when the case ends up in his jurisdiction, he works closely with her to catch the bad guys and make sure Vivi doesn't let her passion get the better of her judgment. The tension between them grows, burns and explodes (literally, a few times!Read more ›
Colton Lang is sublime. Buttoned down to within an inch of his life, ordered and rule driven, we have been getting glimpses of him from the beginning of the series. In Face of Danger, he just explodes out of the gate, grabbing the reader's attention. There is never a doubt about his agenda and his motivation for his need for rules and control is spelled out early on. Vivi sets his world on edge, flaunting his love for order with her risk taking. But he is drawn to her. As he becomes more and more attracted to Vivi, we feel his anguish and his fear of taking the risk of falling for her.
Vivi Angelino...what a heroine. I have loved her since Edge of Sight. Confident in her skills, striving to bring her firm to the top of the heap of private investigation/protection agencies, Vivi wants to be the best, and throws herself whole heartedly into the growing of her familiy's business. Vivi has a past, though. Her traumatic experience changed her from a cheerleader/ballet dancer adolescent just coming into the exploration of her sexuality to a pierced tomboy who dressed in baggy clothes, doing her best to hide her feminine side. Learning about her trauma was heartbreaking. Watching her overcome her past, with Colt's help, was liberating.
Vivi and Colt together...put on a flame retardant suit to read the love scenes! Consider yourself warned... Jaysus....from the airplane to the bathroom to the wall...Read more ›
However, Vivi does have a striking resemblance to a movie star that is in the path of a serial killer who hates Oscar winners. Vivi steps into the latest winner Cara Ferrari's fabulous strappy sandals and pretends to draw everyone one way while Cara goes another. However, Vivi finds that there is more than one secret hiding beside her in Nantucket and while no one wants to talk, Colton would like to do some investigating of his own one-on-one with Vivi sans any clothing. Colton got lucky being assigned this case and can keep a very special attentive eye on Vivi while trying to prove his muster with the FBI. Occasionally a rule needs to be broken and if Vivi can convince Colton of that, they really might have a great time and possibly a future together.Read more ›
