1. As mentioned in previous reviews, this book had some major grammar errors. I don't think it was edited at all. There were simple mistakes like spelling or comma errors and major mistakes like run-on sentences. That is very distracting when reading and just seems very unprofessional.
2. The heroine, Lauren, is only 24 but has been practicing for five years and has all these major cases? Aren't many people not even finished with law school at 24? You have to have a regular bachelor's degree first, which puts most people at 21 or 22. How can she be a hot-shot lawyer in such a short amount of time? Secondly, she is supposedly this hot-shot lawyer but is apparently an idiot. Now that the Geico commercial just came out about how people in scary movies always run towards the danger, that's what this book reminds me of. She is being stalked and threatened but thinks nothing of her window being open while she is gone? She is being stalked and threatened but doesn't want to tell anyone or get help and willingly leaves the building, doesn't think anything of it when someone pushes her and burns her on the street? Once she accepts the plea deal, she just assumes that her stalker is finished with her, despite no proof to the contrary? When she hears another woman leave a voice mail on Royce's answering machine, immediately cries and is done and runs out of the apartment with his brother to a crime scene, even though they've his brother tells her the woman means nothing and they've only been together for days.
2. Royce is a security expert without actually being an expect. He was in the FBI for 15 years but is only 34? He's 34 and she's 24. It really came off as creepy. But, anyway, he joined in the FBI when he was 19? Again, I'm pretty sure they only want people with criminal justice backgrounds or those who have bachelor's degrees. Not only that, but then he started this security business and has been running it for two years now. This goes back to the editing -- these things just don't make sense and distract from the story. Not only that, but again, she is being threatened and he's to keep an eye on her but her window is open and he says . . . call the manager? Ok, sure. It doesn't cross his mind that the apartment might be bugged, even after the window is open and she is receiving creepy mail there. Nope, they have all their sexy times in the living room. And then nothing is ever mentioned about the camera again. I think she'd want to know about that. Also, he does or does not work for her dad? Either her dad hired him to check her out and watch out for her, or there was no reason for him to hide anything from her. That was never cleared up.
3. Finally, the mystery. The bad guy talks about how she had to die once he met her in her office . . . but she was already being stalked at that point, presumably by this guy. The villain meets her dad at dad's house but it's never said why the lady's brother would be able to meet a senator. And then sleep with the senator's wife and draw her into his murder plot? And the murder plot urged on by the stepmother was just so her husband could get the sympathy vote? That makes no sense, at all. It also doesn't make sense that this guy wants Lauren dead for prosecuting his sister. If he really wanted her dead, why didn't he just kill her before it went to trial? Why draw all this out? It made no sense.
That's how I felt about the whole book. I just kept thinking to myself, this doesn't make any sense. Kind of like the TSTL heroine but for the entire book instead.
Lisa has done it again, I loved this book. It has love, mystery. An alpha male that is sooooooo dam hot , his looks alone will melt your panties off. Royce is I think every woman's idea of an alpha male. He is a no hold bars kind of guy that will do anything to protect those that he loves. If he loves you, he will do just about anything to keep you and protect you. Lauren's character is tough on the outside but very insecure on the inside. You kind a want to wrap her up in bubble wrap and not let her do anything at the beginning of the book. As the book goes along she gets stronger and with Royce at her side she can do almost anything. Then there is the creepy step brother and mother. They so well written, you actually get the creeps reading their characters. Which to me is a sign of a good writer. The way that Lisa writes about Lauren's dysfunctional family and the love between the Walker family is so realistic. You can just feel the tension whenever Lauren has to visit her family. You also feel the love and warmth of walking into the apartments of the Walker brothers. They all may have their own demons but they love and respect each other so much .
Be ready for a fast paced, action packed read. The boys will have you hooked from the very first page. The mystery and action will keep you on the edge of your seat, turning page after page. There is sex in the book but it is kept to a minimum but the sex is still hot , I mean really hot. The twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end. I read way into to the night and when I was finished,I knew I wanted more of these boys. I want to find out if they all get their happily ever after .
So if you want a good read for the beach, the pool or just even a great sunday morning read. Check out the Boys of Walker Security and the women who love them
