Okay. I finished this book a few days ago now and I think I'm ready to write a review. It's not that great. It's weird. I feel myself being drawn to these characters. I like them and I don't mind spending time with them. I just don't think they're in the right hands. They're not being given very interesting stories or even very interesting things to say. I don't understand how an author could come up with such intriguing characters, but then not be able to tell their stories properly. It upsets me. They deserve better than this.

Let's start off with my first complaint. All the men in this book (with the slight exception of Mr. Black) speak exactly the same. Most notably, Mr. Red and Mr. White. Barely anything differentiates these men. Even Blue and Brown sometimes sound the same way. I do understand the subtle differences between them, but they don't have unique enough personalities. I think that's why I'm always rooting for Black when I'm reading. He's the best guy there, so why does Alex feel nothing for him?? Drives me crazy. And IF she's going to feel something for White, why not actually do anything about it????? They should at least talk about their feelings or kiss or something! It's not even sexual tension, the way it's written. Not that it has to be some crazy romance novel, it definitely shouldn't be, but please! Give something! I'm begging you!

JC Phelps needs an editor badly too. I can overlook the occasional typo, really I can. But not like this. First of all, learn the difference between "your" and "you're"; "their", "there" and "they're"; and "its" and "it's". Those mistakes are unforgivable in my reader's mind. I can't take it. Secondly, make sure you know what the words mean that you're choosing to use. Well known phrases are repeatedly misused.

A little undercover special non military rich girl with romance? I'm in! Loved following the characters of the series, although I do wish there had been more follow up or spin offs on some of the other characters (maybe Brown or Black?).

This book was simplistic at its best. It was not properly edited and the grammatical errors were distracting. The author wrote the whole story from the main character's mind in first person. It lacked depth, was bland, and where there was supposed action, it lacked suspense and was quite predictable. The only emotions in the whole story were the endless insecurities about the main character's attractive co-worker. The main character whined annoyingly. I gave it two stars rather than one because I read it to the end. I guess I was hoping it would get better as I went on. I won't be continuing with the next in the series.

I gave this the same rating as I did the first book of the series as it wasn't probably about the same level as the first. Plot was decent, action very good and an interesting plot twist to this one.

I'd hoped for more character development and didn't get it, main character is still vacillating about her feelings and borderline whining at times, the supporting characters are still pretty much "cardboard figures".

I have to say the editing errors bothered me more with this one, not sure if it is worse than in the first book or I just noticed it more. Either way, it was bad.

I'm still in the 'debate' stage about the third book, trying to decide if I really care enough about the characters to risk ending up with another 'doesn't go anywhere' addition to the series.

This series takes twists around the steam engine paradigm that amaze and delight me...not your average reader either. I require entertainment at every page turn...and Phelps delivers with humor and compassion. Those are Alexis traits artfully woven into a strong feminine personality that remains humble and ever ready to lead her team into dodges and scraps that defy gravity. And there may be some credit due to her mentor character, I credit the fortitude and determination to Alexis who strives to make life better for a society that's bound by the greed of emerging business minds who ignore the needs of anyone beneath their station in life. Oh ya...looks alot like my world today too. I am inspired by this tale of triumph and tragedy.

Solid continuation of book #1. The disintegrating government of the United States is a probable outcome of the current political picture and is used as a strong basis for this continuing plot line. Charactrs continue to grow and new are added.

Ms Grey, Mr White, Mr Black and all the rest are a great group of characters. I have re-read all three books and can't wait for book 4. While there is a little over explaination in places (like we did not read book one), it is an excellent portrayl of a woman who can take care of herself.

I didn't notice the grammatical errors in the first book of the series, but it really jumps out in the second. Surely she had someone else read or edit it but maybe not someone who has had sixth grade English Grammar! However, the plot and characterization make up for cringeing at occasional bad grammar so I give the book four stars. It is a fun book to read about a woman of intrigue and danger, and it doesn't bother me she lives in her parents' guesthouse!
