Guns 'N' Tulips by Kristine Cayne
Genres: Crime, Suspense, Contemporary Romance.
*Note. Before I downloaded this I checked the genres 'Top Shelves' on GR. At least 4 people had it listed as Erotic or Adult. It most definitely is NOT either of those. I also checked reviews before I downloaded it. I have to say there were a few that insinuated it was adult. If I had know it was not adult I would not have downloaded it and would not be writing this review.
It is a very short read and the flow is a bit choppy. I only found 1 typo.
The characters were okay, but not very captivating. Other than a kiss there is no intimacy.
Everything happens at the bank on the day of the heist.
This could have been a really good crime suspense. It just didn't have enough character build, nor intensity to pull that off.
Bottom line, for me it was boring.

In fact I have a hard time writing this review due to the fact that I don't want to spoil it but I will tell you this: Immediately you are drawn in to a scene filled with suspense when plans don't go according to plan and then an added twist to the story appears and draws you in further. And the resolution was quite ingenious.
This book is worth your time.
Good Job Author Kristine Cayne.
Connor has only one chance to get this right. If he is able to catch the Bank Bandits red handed (while undercover, mind you), he can get his reputation back and hopefully the girl. Except the leader of the bandits suspects something and at the last minute switches banks. Not just away from the bank his backup is waiting at, but to the bank where his girl is the loan officer. The leader of the bandits has been known to execute the loan officers. This is not looking good .... Give this book a try to see how he saves the girl and his reputation.
Favorite quote: "A bank vault isn't like your woman's legs; it won't open with just a kiss and a poke. It requires some teasing, some stroking, the right tools, and a man who knows what to do with them" [Connor says to the leader of the bandits]
I thought I had time to read it before my husband came to bed and said "lights out," but couldn't get past halfway. What a disappointment! I had a hard time falling asleep, with this story playing through my mind...wondering what would happen next and how Connor/Conman would get Lily out of there alive. Both Lily and Connor (whose HEA was desperately interrupted when "he agreed to go undercover with the mob and infiltrate the ruthless Bank Bandits" [blurb provided by author]) were likeable, sympathetic characters, and I was so happy to see how easily they reconciled (Lily's a smart woman).
The last scene zipped past really quickly. Lots of resolution happened in the space of about 4 paragraphs (per blurb, "his badge, his friends, and his fiancee). I would've loved to have seen more of an emotional response from Connor, after all (per blurb)..."Connor's chance to get his old life back"....and let Connor have any response at all to the rest of his team (the police) acknowledging he'd been undercover. The good guys have this HUGE revelation (that Connor was undercover)...and they act, true, but this epiphany fell flat. Could be I'm the only reader who felt this way; I imagine many, many will find this short perfect as is.
Connor Kavanaugh has lost everything to an undercover gig; his friends, colleagues, and most importantly his fiancee. However, today is finally the day he'll be able to put the case behind him. With a team in place ready to bust the band of bank robbers, the fact that they are at the wrong one is the least of Connors worries.
With a group known for leaving dead managers in their wake, it only takes a single glance at this bank's management for Connor to know that it isn't only his reputation on the line.
My favorite quote:
"A bank vault isn't like your woman's legs; it won't open with just a kiss and a poke."
5 stars all the way. You can read in one sitting which I really enjoy. Check this one out.
The author pulls you right into the story from the very first few sentences. The action starts right up and within just a few paragraphs, the characters seem to have a life of their own. The author writes so well it's easy to get caught up in the action taking place and you'll want to finish this story in one sitting!
I really can't tell you too much about the actual story because I don't want to give anything away and it would be far too easy to slip and give something away accidently. The ending ties everything up nice and neat though so you will get one very complete story with Guns 'N' Tulips. The only thing is, when you finish it, you wish it would keep going! This is a great short story and one I'd happily recommend.
