Bring back Riley Jensen
on April 25, 2011
This book left much to be desired for me. It was much more typical romace than urban fantasy. The heroine was kind of a dud. The previous book in the series was much better.
I could not get lost in this book, like I usually can in Keri Arthur's books. I had constant questions: How could anyone fall in love so fast when her best friend was just killed? How could she fall in love with a man who is a hired killer, when she is so squeamish? How could she keep getting herself into such stupid situations where someone needs to rescue her, and then insist she can defend herself? How could he stand her?
Mercy was whiny, defensive, and often stupid. As stated in another review, she was way too stuck on the idea that she was part of a minority, without really showing us what made her special and worthwhile. After Riley Jensen, it is hard to accept a heroine like this.
