Heed the warning in the blurb please! The rape is not shown, but there is a scene of graphic physical violence against another woman in the book. I would say that the details of most violence are not shown, only results are mentioned, but that scene was graphic enough for me, although not very long

Dear KJ Charles,

I was very pleasantly surprised that your new book is set in modern Japan after reading (and loving) your m/m series set in AU Victorian England. It is always nice to see a writer who is not writing the same story over and over again. But I will be honest: right now the phrase “will read a cook book” does apply to how I feel about your writing, so it was not really a stretch that I wanted to read your m/f romance set in modern Japan.

The settings are very detailed and I felt as if I was in Japan. The narrator throws in details which only a person who spent time in Japan is likely to know. Kerry is fluent in Japanese and many other languages so it makes sense that from time to time there are some Japanese words appearing in the book – not that many, and they are explained or you can easily figure them out from context, but they are there. Of course I do not know whether those words are correct, whether settings details are correct, I want to think that author did her research, but I just do not know. I do know that now I want to visit Japan as a tourist even more than I did before.

Um, this is awkward.

Everyone else loves this book, and I totally get why. It is fast-paced, action-packed, and different from your run of the mill romances. To boot, the plot is interesting and the story is well written. However, it just wasn't the book for me.

To be fair, I'm not a romantic suspense reader. In fact, I actively avoid them because I just don't enjoy those types of books. However, as a HUGE fan of K.J. Charles and her other works, I had to try this one.

I really think this is a case of "It's not you, it's me."

I'll try to explain what didn't work for me. First of all, I don't love books with large ensemble casts because I get confused as to who is who and why they are there. Those types of books don't appeal to me much. I would much rather read a book with a couple of main players and that is it. In this story, the friends of Kerry played a huge role, and I found myself getting lost a bit in the shuffle.

I also didn't feel much chemistry between Kerry and Chanko. I really liked the idea of them as a couple, but I don't think the passion came through for me. It might be partly because I didn't connect with Kerry much. I found her to be aloof and sort of annoying, which colored my whole reading experience.

And the plot... ugh, suspense really isn't my thing. I felt like I was getting whiplash going from location to location and having the MCs concoct one scheme after another. That, combined with the length of the book (over 400 pages), made it really hard for me to finish. In fact, I repeatedly put this book down and had to force myself to pick it up again.

I don't want to dissuade readers from trying this book- far from it. I think K.J. Charles is brilliant, and I'm sure fans of M/F suspense will really enjoy this one. I just think this book was wasted on little ol' me.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I love KJ Charles Magpie series, read all of them so far and they are in my keepers files, so I was keen to see how she would do with this very different romance. They are gentle historical, fantasy, M/M romances and this one is a contemporary suspense type romance. Two very different styles and yet I could get the same feeling of reality, characters I enjoyed and felt were genuine, and the setting once again felt real to me even though I’ve never been to Japan. The dialogue is sprinkled every now and then with Japanese words but from the context we know what they mean. It adds to the foreign country feel of the story, and I love the way the cultural nuances, the way the Japanese are very polite even when they are actually very angry, are explained. It made me feel as if I was there with the characters.
Its a story that starts gently with linguist Kerry using her skills in a high end bar, where she earns a good salary for just chatting and being friendly with bored, stressed businessmen. They just want someone to listen to them, to sympathise and sound intelligent – its nothing more than that, no seamy prostitution, though if the girls want to do that they take it elsewhere. Its from one doing exactly that which ends Kerry in the muddle she’s in. The Yakuza are after her, convinced she knows something or has something they want after one of the Brothers is murdered....and they aren’t the type who will sympathise if she says “sorry, it wasn’t me”!!
Kerry ends up on the run, escaping them by the skin of her teeth.
