With this book, I did something I usually don't do: I downloaded the sample first. It's inexpensive enough to be an impulse buy, but I hesitated and decided to try it out before committing. Once I'd read the free portion, I still hesitated. I'm not sure why. Obviously I went ahead and purchased it, wanting to support local talent and all. Plus, so many of the reviews were from other people who live here and who lauded the author for including so many shout outs to the city. I didn't really get much of that from the preview, so I was intrigued to see what they were talking about.
Upon finishing the novel, I'm really glad I wasn't playing a drinking game during it. The mentions of Fort Wayne are so heavy handed that I was actually distracted by them. Seriously, I had to stop in the middle of reading it to Google when National City Bank became PNC. I think her facts are a bit off, because I don't think The Harrison was open for office space when Nat City was still around. After that, I found it to be like a list of attractions put together by the visitor's bureau. Alas, they didn't go ice skating at Headwaters Park prior to heading to a Mad Ants game, but they went just about everywhere else in between.
But back to the actual plot of the story. I found it to be different than anything I've personally read before. You have to suspend disbelief here more than a little bit - it's hard to swallow that two intelligent men (Jack and Rudy) would go along with a plan to willingly kidnap a woman as part of her therapy. But once the action truly gets underway and Jack realizes he's taken the "wrong" woman, the pacing is good and it's an enjoyable read.
Jack and Molly are likeable characters and they have a strong rooting value going for them. They both have pasts to hide and eventually overcome. I could have done without the obligatory sex scenes (one was enough), but this seems to be typical of the genre. After reading so many pages of them, they all seem to blend together and leave me just wanting to go back to the plot. If I wanted erotica, I'd go download some.
Still, I had a good time reading this and will likely look for more by this author.
