5.0 out of 5 stars A Romance Writer's Take!, March 10, 2012
This review is from: One Rough Man: A Pike Logan Thriller (Mass Market Paperback)
Besides being a voracious reader all of my life, I have spent the last twenty-some years in the writing industry learning the craft and publishing thirteen books on my own in various romance genres. This journey has made me a strong critic when it comes to enjoying a book as a reader. A writer has to bring everything to the party in terms of character, internal and external conflicts, plot, and fullness to the story. Being a romance reader at heart who also hungers for a heart pounding thriller, I sometimes find that male thriller writers a) don't give their heroines a strong role in the story b) don't tackle the emotional development and conflicts between the hero and heroine in a satisfying way c) never open the bedroom door on page but can describe all manner of violence, and d)eventually either write the heroine out of the story or kill her off because it is a challenge to sustain a healthy relationship. In One Rough Man Brad Taylor delivered on all points for me, especially when it came to the emotional conflicts between Jennifer and Pike. So even though there was no consummation on the underlying attraction between them, they united on other levels that left me satisfied. I can't wait to see what's next for these two because Brad made me care about them both while delivering one hell of a thrill right. Kudos. Eagerly moving on to All Necessary Force.
