Totally realistic...and sex enough for guys, even.
on October 13, 2006
My wife had this book on her nightstand, and (I guess, because of the sexy cover), it certainly looked interesting to me, too. She'd read it in, like, one night. That fast, I swear. In fact, she couldn't put it down until she finished it, which is always a good sign.
I asked her if it was a decent read, and she laughed and said, "You'd love it. Not just for the police stuff, but the sex, too."
Hey, that was enough to pique my interest, since I happen to be a cop. And yeah, like every guy I know, I love smokin' sex scenes. I have to admit that usually I don't read this kind of book, but this particular author must have some background in police procedure (undercover, anyway), and, yeah, I'll say it: the sex scenes are HOT, and not just in a girly way, but in a way that guys can dig, too. (In other words, Tabke could write for PLAYBOY ADVISOR, if it wasn't beneath her.)
Sure, does the author contrive some of the circumstance? Maybe. But what made it a good read--and realistic, I might add--is the way in which she understands the motivation of an undercover cop, particularly one who has already been burned by the system (as most of us have) or is working with someone who he still doesn't know he can trust. So yeah, trust me, that rings true.
I'd give this 4 stars, only because I figured out the bad guy about a chapter or two before it was revealed, but since it looks like some other reviewer here has a grudge against this author and has trashed her on purpose, I'll chip in another star.
Better yet, I'll read her next book, too.
