Sadly when we reach the 20% mark things begin coming apart. The spelling, tense lapses, and repetition begin causing enough distraction to impact reading pleasure. By the 50 % mark the story is not just bordering on overly repetitive but it becomes contradictory and continuity suffers. One moment X person has A viewpoint, and then suddenly it switches 180 degrees. Things really start to get confusing when the drug runners enter the picture. The scenes are no longer clearly delineated and some parts are skimmed over while others are overly described.
All in all this reads as a very good first draft of what could be a really great book. I would suggest that the author take another look at it and then do some reworking and have a couple of proof-readers take a look at it. I ready hope she does because this really could be a very enjoyable read.
Basically, it's a lovely start to what could be a fabulous story. It just needs significant editing.
I had a problem with the heroine. Sure she was a strong female, and I know that some people like their heroines to be strong. However, there is a difference between being strong and independent and being just plain stupid.
The heroine has a heart defect and when she has a problem and the hero is worried about her she tries to play it off like she just ran too hard. That's a lie and I can't abide by lies in stories real or fictional. It could've been something serious that if she didn't tell him she could've died.....just plain stupid.
I'm sure others like this e-book or will like it, but in my opinion I would advise not buying it.
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐️
Smoke jumper on the Donovan Brother's jump Team, Rio Donovan has a reputation of a love them and leave them kinda guy. His two brothers already solidly committed in loving relationships, Rio couldn't see himself going down that risky path. Normally one to face any challenge, give him a raging forest fire and he would be front of the line to jump out of the plane, anything long term when it comes to relationships seemed too much of a hassle. That is, until his new jump partner showed up earlier in the summer.
Her second summer jumping, but first time with the Jordan Brother's team, Gia Jackson put her heart and soul in her work. She was determined not to let the fact she was female distract from the fact that she could perform as well as any other guy out there and despite her family's concerns about her health, she was managing just fine. If only she could stop herself from being too distracted by her boss and jump partner. But when she ends up with Rio in her arms on one jump that almost goes horribly wrong, all bets are off.
Celebrating the successful conclusion of what could have been a disastrous call, Gia and Rio find themselves high on life and a bit of alcohol, kissing outside Gia's door. One taste turns out to be not enough for either, and despite concerns around mixing professional and personal involvement, keeping their hands off each other turns out to be impossible.
When during a jump, Rio and Gia are first down, trying to get out of the way of the fire, they bump into some illegal activities on the mountain, they are now not only chased by the fire, but by criminals as well.Read more ›

Gia and Rio had great chemistry. Felt like some of the story was just thrown in for distraction but it all works. The drug grow and takedown are all pretty vague. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Lori E. Connors
