The good: Let’s start with, who doesn’t love a handsome lawyer/FBI agent/cowboy all rolled into one? Also, for 95% of the book, Maddy was a smart, independent and professional woman to be admired. Next good thing, Alec’s family played a small part in this book and while they were unrealistically convenient, they were enjoyable to meet. While Alec's mother was great, I especially liked Alec’s brother, Cole the Sherriff, when he took Maddy somewhere on the ranch with the intent of getting a rise out of Alec. It worked nicely. Finally and probably most importantly, when Alex and Maddy interacted romantically throughout the book, those pieces were very well done—and hot. These are two caring people who worked well together between the sheets.
Issues: First, see my comment above regarding Maddy's TSTL moments. While this didn’t happen often, it did happen and it bothered me that someone so smart could have moments so dumb. Second, towards the end of the book Maddy is engaged in a conversation with her colleague, Evelyn, and she discussed things that no sane woman would share in casual conversation. These are things that could put others (specifically federal agents) at risk. Why do it? The answer is that no one with common sense would. Finally, Maddy had a change of plans early in the book and the question of how the bad guys became aware of the change came up several times. You think you know the answer from events that happen immediately prior to rescue #2, but you’re left wondering if you really do based on that character’s reappearance later in the book, under very cordial circumstances.
There’s definitely more good than bad in this book and I did enjoy it. I will try the author again because I’d like to read about Alec’s brothers Cole and Hawk. If the heroines in those stories have “moments” like Maddy did, I’m pretty sure that I’ll add them to my DNF pile. I’m optimistic, though, because there were parts of Montana Escape that made for a very good read.
When Maddy Wright's remote Montana vacation cabin is invaded by violent intruders, she has no idea what danger she's really in. Fortunately for her, FBI agent Alec Pierce does know and is in place to lend a hand. And he's got his hands full, not only with the vengeful-minded Latin American gangsters intent on kidnapping Maddy, but also with the headstrong Maddy herself. If those complications weren't enough, Pierce must battle his own lustful longings for the beautiful woman he's pledged to protect.
Accustomed as I am to the more action-oriented works of authors like Vince Flynn and his Mitch Rapp series, or Ted Bell's Alex Hawke books, I expect more gunplay than foreplay involving the stories characters. But it comes as no surprise that an experienced romance writer such as Liza Jayne delivers her steamy love scenes with greater sizzle than one usually encounters from her male action-writing colleagues.
This is the fourth of this author's books I've read and enjoyed, the first one that's placed in a contemporary rather than historical setting. I haven't abandoned my predilection for the grittier offerings of others, but my occasional dalliances with this author's works continue to bring me back for more.
