The Hostage Rescue series as well as the DEA FAST series seem to be more uneven in terms of character appeal. Like Book 1 of the FAST series, I didn't feel the burning passion between Kai and Abby in Fast Fury. They had known each other for years as neighbors and had done 'good neighbor' deeds for each other, but had never socialized. Kai was clearly loyal, staying faithful for years to a woman whose demands and accusations finally drove him away. He definitely makes a good book boyfriend (other than an unusual amount of eyebrow wiggling), especially since he has family and friends in Maui. Who could resist tall, dark, and handsome along with beach access? My one quibble would be his judgement about making love to his new girlfriend right beside Grandma's room the night a relative is murdered.
Abby was a less compelling character. The reader was continually hit over the head with the 'Old Abby/New Abby' concept, but she seemed much too hesitant for most of the book. The number of times she second-guessed herself, as well as Kai, was frustrating. I'm not sure what the need was to have her seem so damaged, after what was not a particularly devastating break up or a high school incident where boys made fun of her. Almost everyone I know has stayed too long in a lousy relationship at some point in their lives and it is rare for someone to get through high school without some humiliation.
"She had the real-life equivalent of a PhD in dysfunctional relationships."
"It had taken her a long time to extricate herself from her previous disaster,..."
"Looking back, her pattern of tolerating unhealthy relationships had begun with them and their example..."
"As far as she could tell she didn't have to worry about those things with Kai, BUT because of her history she would be wary in the beginning."
"Kai was her friend and yet she was still a little worried about what would happen after this."
Given that the author stresses they have been friends for years, why is she acting like she doesn't know he is a good guy?
When they go on a first date (with his grandmother) and she immediately says, 'Can we talk about us? ... Where do we stand right now?" What??? This is followed by a diatribe about how whether things would work between them and the risk to their friendship (i.e. house-sitting services).
There is a lot of dialogue (some 8 or more pages long) where Abby talks about her negative view of romance and relationships.
"Not that fire is the be all, end all when it comes to a potential relationship. I know it's not that important because it always burns out eventually."
"Chemistry is like false advertising. It's an illusion." Honestly, I just wanted to give her a good kick at this point. I liked the idea that she was taking kick-boxing lessons, but the confidence that should have been part of 'New Abby' was lacking for most of the book.
"Old Abby would have stayed in her cover up in the shade the entire time. New Abby was confident, knew who she was and what she wanted." Bwaahaaahaa! She only took the cover-up off because he asked her to so they could go snorkeling. Given that they were a few paces from the water, she didn't need to put it on in the first place and then she just about has a melt down because he rubs sunscreen on her and lifts the 'skirt' on her bikini bottom and might see her cellulite. There was a lot of talk about the brave new Abby, but the fact is that her behavior and attitude didn't live up to this.
Using the opioid crisis as part of the plot was an interesting idea, but it was dealt with in a very superficial manner. Given what we now know about doctors over-prescribing opioids and major drug companies hiding the fact that they knew opioids were highly addictive in presentations to the Senate, it is hard not to have some sympathy for one of the villains. (Google 'drug companies opioid epidemic' to see all the pending lawsuits against big pharma.) After a rather OTT Abby incident at 86% the story wraps up quickly focusing on the HEA and leaving unresolved plot points, particularly involving Diane and Oceane.
If you haven't read any books by Ms. Cross, don't start with this series. The Titanium and Bagram series will give you hundreds of hours of reading pleasure. For those of you, like me, who are always curious about what Kaylea Cross has written, this is worth buying, but not a book I would reread.
Both were going to be in Hawaii for a few days and spent time together. Instant attraction in both parts. But trouble is brewing and can Kai keep Abby safe?
This one action packed and I really enjoyed Kai and Abby's story
Kai Maka is with FAST Bravo who has made too many mistakes when it comes to women. He hasn’t realized that his neighbor next door is right for him because he is too busy having fights with his current dysfunctional girlfriend. Before he realizes that Abby McKinley may be right for him, he is forced to move.
Finally, they both realize that the want to give their relationship a chance, so Abby agrees to meet Kai in Hawaii where he grew up. They both burn up the sheets as their passion for each other is truly red-hot. But, when a drug cartel wants to Kai’s cousin to kill him to show his allegiance, so they take Abby.
The clock is ticking, and Kai must save Abby before it’s too late. Don’t miss this installment because it truly is brilliant.
We've been introduced to Kai and Abby in previous book. Here, their friendship blossomed to romance, a solid one at that. Abby was dragged through danger due to her association with Kai, a DEA FAST agent. Well, also the connection with Kai's cousin. Glimpses into Hani's thought was humbling for me. Although the basic recipe was the same with all her books, the execution was always different from book to book. I've read all her RS books, and I never feel any repetition in them.
Now I'm waiting for the next DEA FAST books, especially one involving Hamilton and the special woman we met books ago. Waiting...
