However, I still would have liked...
More flashbacks from when they were partnered before. I think without more flashbacks to them fighting with one another and fighting their desire we missed out on some great foreplay. A tad more verbal sparring on the plane would have been fun too.
I also would have loved seeing them come out to their coworkers great surprise. It could have been quite a comedic opportunity.
I surely would have also enjoyed more of a reunion with Alex and her dad with her confessing she had burned pages of his book.
I would have loved a scene between Maggie and Paige somehow.
Overall, the book is enjoyable it just left me wanting more, in a good way.
Maggie and Alex are both Detective Inspectors in London, but don't let this fool you. This is novel has very little to do with their jobs and everything to do with their relationship. Immediately we are introduced to the tension and animosity between these two women. They are polar opposites in many respects. So once again don't expect anything do with police procedure.
This book reads very fast and is incredibly fun. I never once felt like it bogged down. From the moment the plane went down I was completely hooked and honestly I think my favorite part was the middle third of the book as these women fought for survival. Alex was especially amazing and I loved her stubborn drive to survive against all odds. I thought that the author handled the romance between the characters very well and their relationship developed realistically. There are a few "hot" scenes for those interested in such things. *wink*
I don't have many complaints. I think the editing was good and honestly only noticed a few mistakes. Nothing that I would call overly distracting though. I wasn't in love with the epilogue, but perhaps that is just me. For whatever reason it just didn't click. In fact would have been fine if it just ended at last chapter. But like I said it could just be me, I doubt most will have a problem with it.
I definitely recommend buying this one. I think it would have been worth it at $9.99 so at the price it is a fantastic bargain. Lastly the best thing I can say about this novel is that at about 1/3 of the way through I took a break to buy the author's second book. I was that impressed. Lyn Gardner is on my radar. 4/5
My second issue was that we had no idea what Maggie looked like until almost halfway through the story! All we knew was that she was shorter than Alex (the butch/soft butch) . Alex was described almost constantly from beginning to end, I found this just weird. Made it seem like the author was favoring her soft butch character more, kinda reminds me of Radclyffe who does this quite a bit.
I liked the characters, they were fleshed out and could stand alone, they were honest, and funny when needed. You could see how they would fall in love and when it came down to expressing how they feel about one another they did it. They had a conversation like sensible people do, granted it took a little while, because they were both stubborn as hell at times, but they got there. Definitely a page turner, I could not put it down, I brought it this afternoon and finished it the same day. Worth the 4 bucks and a nice little escape. The epilogue was sweet and the last paragraph melts your heart if you remember the story Maggie tells Alex about ice, and how it played a role to her survival, and why that little endearment at the end was important to Maggie's father. Read it and find out!
The only thing is, the ending is rushed some. We don't get to really know Alexandra family. Or the boys. But it is still a great read.
