Kane is a high ranking Navy Seal on leave to visit his brother James, a U.S. Senator, who he hasn't seen in years. He meets Kendall in a bar, they drink too much and go back to her place where he passes out. He wakes up and sneaks out the next morning thinking he'll never see her again. Imagine his surprise when he discovers she's his brother's date that night and that she's being paid to do it. He gets judgmental and says some unkind things. As they're leaving, James is kidnapped and they also try to take Kendall. Kane saves her and vows to find his brother and keep her safe. Women show up dead, secrets are discovered, twists happen and Kane and Kendall grow closer.
This was a pretty good book. Kane is all angry and sulky, but you can't help but like him. He had reason to be mad at James because of what happened in the past. Kendall is a great person. She's made the best of the life she was given and doesn't apologize for it. This book keeps you interested trying to figure out why James was taken and who's involved. There are a number of typos, but nothing terribly bad. The story is told from dual POVs and has a happy ending.
A U.S. Senator is kidnapped and his brother, Navy Seal Kane Clarke, becomes embroiled in his recovery. Kendall Daley, a high-society escort girl who at first was unknowingly involved with both brothers, joins Kane in a wild ride to unravel the political jigsaw-puzzle that engulfs them. Pursued by hired killers, haunted by the sexual tensions of the one-woman two-brothers dilemma, together they bring the reader swiftly to a cliff-hanger of an ending.
Uniquely original was the author's choice to switch back and forth first person narrative between Kendall's voice and Kane's. This provides the reader an intimate look into the thoughts and feeling of each. Also, I liked the high level of political suspense. It reminded me a bit of the Kevin Costner movie ‘No Way Out.’
Political intrigue, Murder, Kidnapping, Romance, Sexual Tensions, and Power Struggles—everything one would expect within the inner-workings of Washington D.C.—makes MISGUIDED TARGET a compelling read.
For me, I thought this was a fast-paced story. It’s not that long, and I read the book in 1 1/2 days. I loved Kendall and Kane and the chemistry between them. They played off each other very well.
As for the storyline, it was pretty standard. Boy meets girl, girl’s in trouble, boy helps girl, they have HEA. There were no plot twists. Nothing unexpected. I felt this was an average read, and I did enjoy it.
BUT!!! Anymore, I try to give some leniency for proofreading errors, but this book was so chock-full of them, I have to take away one star.
If you like HEA, hunky SEALS, and a fast story, you’ll probably enjoy this one. I give it 3 feathers.
The story is well written and enjoyable. I will keep this author on my radar and so should you.
