I really enjoyed this book. Karyn Rae's writing style is unique and intriguing. I caught myself several times upon reading this book thinking, "I love the way she said that." Her characters are real and interesting. A great summer read. I highly recommend reading the second book in the series because unlike some series, the story continues on and becomes even more exciting. Enjoy!

I really loved the book from the start. Was a really quick, easy read and I found it hard to put down. I loved how it switches back and forth from different perspectives of the main characters: Jack, Annie and Kessler. Was happy with the ending and liked Volume 2 just as much.

When buying this book go ahead and buy the second one (The Achilles Heart) right away as you will want to start reading it the minute you finish The Achilles Heel. This is an easy read that keeps readers interested from start to finish with the twists & turns of a romance and mystery woven together. I enjoyed escaping from reality and getting caught up in the lives of the characters, especially Annie.

I am an occasional reader – so when I decide to pick up a book - it has to grab my attention right off the bat. Well, when I started The Achilles Heel I could not put it down – I fell in love with Annie and Kessler from the first couple paragraphs. In my mind, I knew what they both looked like and wanted to know what was going to happen next. Love the way the book is written – just when I thought I knew what was going to happen the plot changed. It’s like I was a character in the story, hanging with Annie feeling all of her emotions. Don’t miss this one, can’t wait to see what Karyn Rae has in stored for the next book!! 5 stars all day!
