Both of these characters are very annoying. They have no idea how to be partners, or even communicate. Cilla doesn't acknowledge how she feels until she realizes Bren is running scared.
The indecision grates after awhile since the story very much revolves around these two.
I gave it a two because their waffling made for very slow moments in the story.
Author: Margaret Watson
Series: The Donovan Family #5 (can standalone)
Genre: romantic suspense, mystery
Themes: fake relationship, law enforcement, office romance
The first book I've read by Margaret Watson, I was immediately struck by how excellent and fluid the writing was, weaving this mystery that, even without the romantic subplot, was interesting in itself. This is one novel which I didn't guess the outcome of before the big reveals, which is a nice surprise. What I found particularly intriguing was that Watson managed to string together several different plots, from hostage situations to shootings, whilst ensuring that it all felt relevant to the overall storyline, whether for relationship, character or plot progression.
Cilla and Brendan's reactions in the aftermath of stressful events were also something I don't tend to read much of; the need to feel alive as a justification for acting like adolescent idiots and adrenaline junkies (and, as I was so wrapped up in the story, it felt like a good enough justification for me). Similarly, their relationship progression, although having a dose of sickening insta-love to begin with, had enough angst that wasn't forced but reminded myself of how a normal person may react when faced with those particular circumstances - which is again a pleasant change.
The main criticism I have (aside from the final third of the novel needing a little more thorough proof-reading) is that although I know a lot about these characters' histories, and their hopes and dreams, I was still left feeling a little cold towards them. Cilla was strong and independent, and I loved her refusal to be labelled a victim. But aside from that, neither really gripped me and made me care all that much, or give me an emotional attachment to the novel.
Overall, a highly enjoyable mystery/suspense/romance which, despite its occasionally cheesy nature, has gripped me enough to want to read the others in the series.
Wow this book! I never really expected this. I was so in awe and I feel like I was so ashamed over something. I mean I felt really left off, If I haven't been given an e.copy I wouldn't know a beautiful story from Margaret Watson existed and that from the fact that I love romance books.What a shame!
Brendan and Cilla is just fun to read. I love these characters. Cilla...this heroine is worth loving. A tough brilliant cop. So cool.I love how bad ass she is but with a soft heart. Her role in their family is so relatable it feels real. I love how she keeps things in order...fixing everything even if it means she wanted the opposite. All she really wants besides a happy career is someone in her life . Someone to come home to at night. Someone to share her burdens with. Someone who could share his burdens with her.Then entered Brendan Donovan,He lived to go undercover. A wild man. Adrenaline junkie. The only Donovan brother still available. A playah. His partner in an undercover op who happened to be that person who will break her rules. Not to date a cop...because her reasons?
They don't make good husbands. They'd rather hang at a bar with their cop buddies than come home to a wife and kids. They cheat.
And Brendan Donovan?
He's 'love 'em and leave 'em Donovan' was legendary. He didn't do 'serious'.
But their chemistry is just so strong.The sexual tension and the attraction is undeniable. Said she's fine with it...but when all hell break loose and secrets unfold..what they have was tested...
"Don't throw away a good thing, Marini, just because you disagree about a few things."
Truly, what I just read is stunningly beautiful. This is my first book of the author but I am in love with her writing skills, the plot, the story line and most of all the characters. I haven't had any dull moments reading Brendan and Cilla's story. This is bad ass!! This is what you call a romance with a twist of suspense and swoon plus steamy overload making your panties soaked but adrenaline rush kept going and your mind kept on solving mysteries and puzzles. Hella perfectly written and mind boggling and at the same time heart leaping and tummy quivering. Wowza factor to the zenith and this from the fact that it's not that heavy of a read. Once you get your hands on it, everything flows smoothly to the fact that time flies by you forget everything because you were pulled into it. Hooked.Invested. Yeah I was like that reading this book.
This is a must read!
