No matter how many major holes I tried to ignore they just grew into gaping caverns and caused this book to fail to work for me. I'm so sorry, but that was my experience.
My copy came from Net Galley. I wasn't required to leave a positive review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Even though Baird is being hunted and has no detailed background in evasion / defense tactics she somehow keeps up this bitchy attitude that she can still control everything and get back at the bad guys. Even the other main character wonders at one point how someone with her background can have this delusional idea she's capable of fighting back, maybe even killing. You REALLY want to hate this character only a few chapters in because she just never gets likable and I found myself hoping the bad guys would off her.
After being kidnapped and escaping instead of going to the police like any sane person would do she decides to go on the run with an ex-boyfriend she happened to run into as she was literally running away from her captor. And the ex-boyfriend had been in the military. Talk about lucky. There's just a lot more that doesn't seem anywhere in the realm of plausibility or common sense. Like when one of the bad guys sends in his secretary, who has so far been described in extreme detail through many sexually charged scenes as only being good for blow jobs and other plastic surgery enhanced jobs, to act as an assassin to take out the military ex-boyfriend who has found himself trying to keep the irritating accountant alive. You can guess how that went.
At least it helped me pass the time and avoid talking to my mother-in-law so some good did come out of it.
Pete is one of her former classmates, now drinking the night away at a bar. The bottle has become his eternal companion after a tour in Iraq destroyed him, and still gives him the occasional flashback to that horrible time. When he sees Veronica, it’s like a trip down memory lane. But Veronica isn’t sure if she can trust him, and he’s not sure if her reapparance is a good thing for him, as it might bring back feelings he thought he’d long managed to bury.
And then there’s also the question: who is after Veronica, and why? And can they escape from the people who want to kill her?
I really enjoyed the writing style, and the plot. Veronica’s personality took some time to get used to, though. Although I felt sympathy for her in regards to what she’d gone through and having to escape such horrible circumstances, I didn’t like her much at first. I did grow to like her as the story progressed.
The book had a lot of suspense, and an intriguing plot. If you like thrillers, it won’t hurt to give this one a try. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
