This book had potential to be a good story but fell short, why because it was too busy. Here's the run down...Three Connolly brothers all ex military, Albanian mobsters, stalkers, a dad whose an abusive drunk and gambler,Russian mob bosses as friends, computer genius as heroine, underground fights, blackmail and while I'm at it throw in a huge secret about our h Bee's dead brother. Are you seeing a pattern here? Too many side characters and subplots, yes yes there were!!!
Now after that rant let's discuss the part that categorizes this as a suspense, the stalker. You mean the stalker whose identity should have been hard to figure out and whose identity should have kept you guessing throughout this book but DIDN'T! Yea the author was so busy putting so many main characters and their friends / acquaintances in the front that she neglected to build characters that the reader's might think was the stalker instead of only ONE person! Oh yea you'll know from the first time you read a chapter with him in it (and its in the very beginning) that he's the stalker. So not much suspense there. As far as the Romance goes blah, mild and boring.
I won't go into to much detail because I don't write review with spoilers, but at one point our H Kelly does something to Bee that causes others to follow basically lacking trust, loyalty and protection and by doing so breaking the promise he made to her dead brother, his best friend about always protecting her. Don't worry folks she immediately forgives and all is right with the world. That right there sealed the fate of this book for me.
Kelly and Bee were not perfect (and straight up stupid at one point). Kelly was caught up in his family's misery and circumstances. Bee was highly intelligent yet also a bit naìve, so the two of them missed some clues, with each other and their surroundings. But what I loved about Bee and Kelly was how sweet and loving they were when they finally admitted their true feelings. They have a great best-friend's-little-sister love story, but what I especially liked was how it wasn't dragged out. When Kelly sees Bee in trouble, there's not denying where his heart is. I also liked that Bee was the rich one in this instance, not the guy. It was a nice change from the usual wealthy guy scenario. Bee and Kelly had different gifts, and different ways to help each other, regardless of money, and I loved getting to know them. These two were a very special couple.
I also loved seeing some of my old Russian mafia friends. Well, at least they feel like friends to me. Whether small cameos, or more meaningful roles to play, I loved the mixing up of these worlds. Yuri was especially great in this one. Also, while I figured some stuff out, I still liked the little twists thrown in here and there, helping to keep what could be a pretty straightforward story, and making it very entertaining. I'm really looking forward to the other Connolly brother stories.
This isn't a gem.
There were too many flaws for me. When I picked this book I thought the plot might be kind of interesting. This fell flat with both the characters and the plot.
Beatrice, the main character, was beyond annoying. I understand she needed to come across as needing help because she had a stalker. I accepted that, but come on. She has all this money and I swear she flaunts it every couple of sentences. She feels like money can get her out of any situation she has. Not only that, but the character she is supposed to "love" she lies to constantly and goes behind his back on a few things to be sneaky. That just rubbed me the wrong way.
The plot was predictable. I figured out who the stalker was within the first couple pages. Not only that but come on one stalker wasn't enough so let's throw in 2?? Really??
The book focused almost completely on Kelly preparing for his fight. Not what I was looking for when I picked up the book. Then as I read there were all these references to her other books that had the same damsel in distress, I need a man to come save me storyline.
I don't know.. the entire thing was predictable, non-eventful, and Beatrice annoyed the crap out of me.
