4.0 out of 5 stars I give it a 3.5 stars (bumped to for 4), August 6, 2009
This review is from: Deception (Love on the Edge) (Kindle Edition)
It all began when Lucas Barone walked out on his then girlfriend, Kate McAuley. Without an explanation, it appeared as though he just disappeared off the ace of the earth...that is, until one day, a knock on Kate's door. Lucas returns, but he is bleeding and nearly unconscious - what is Kate to do? This man broke her heart, but she can't just turn her back on him - but Lucas comes with baggage. As a co-op special forces agent, he has some very powerful enemies that want to see him (and Kate) dead - but why? The pair decide to hit the road trying to elude what almost seems inevitable. I'll stop there, as I don't want to spoil the story. The story is good and the characters are convincing, but the book does lose momentum once Lucas and Kate reach their safe haven. At this point all the suspense seems manufactured and the story tries to pass off some rather unconvincing excuses for what is happening. Deception by Sharon Cullen isn't a bad story, it just needs to pick a genre and stick with it. The book starts as a very intriguing suspense, but then it unexpectedly shifts toward a rather unconvincing romance...and when it tries to revert back toward suspense, it fails. Overall, I give it a 3.5 stars (bumped to for 4....another book I would highly recommend that masters the dual genre is Geo Tin's novel Sirens: Sirens (Enchanted Song) simply magnificent.
