Cassandra was determined to find her family. She was separated from her father and brother when young. She never saw her father and brother again. Years later, she thought she found her father dead, but her brother was still missing. She was supposed to be chasing a lead in Las Vegas, but a night with a sexy cowboy derailed that plan, and she was quickly called back to Texas... a horse on her ranch may have killed someone... again. Her attempt to reclaim the horse was successful, until a bear sent the horse into a panic flight, and she flew off the horse and went unconscious, only to wake up in a place that's NOT a hospital... and greeted by that sexy cowboy that bedded her in Vegas. What's going on?
Frankly, this book makes absolutely no sense, and feels like disparate scenes stitched together and "voila", a novel. A private security firm with a "silent helo"? What's next? Airwolf? Characters are introduced than abandoned. Witness security that lasted over a decade, including planting fake bodies. Plot lines that doesn't intersect forced together. And the romance just feels... Forced.
It was hard to overlook some of the typos and grammatical errors. Some are understandable, but there were quite a few. Missing words, wrong words (descent when she meant decent, more than once), a lot (a WHOLE lot) of incorrect punctuation, that type of thing. Enough that it pulled me out of the story several times.
I always appreciate getting different POVs, in this case the H/h. I'm not certain I understand why the author chose to write Cass's POV in first person, though, when she wrote Gage's in third. Why not keep them the same? Additionally, a couple of times, it slipped into the wrong voice, using she or her when it should have been I (for Cass). The switch from first to third person jarred me almost every time.
Additionally, I get suspended belief, but this was a little much at times. This enormous family, all gorgeous and brilliant, and they can practically read each others' minds. After a while, it got really old. The explanation of the compound where Cass was held, the talking cat, all of it just became a little too much to swallow.
I'm really torn about whether or not I'd recommend this book to a friend. I strongly recommend an editor for Ms. Jane before she publishes anything else.
When they described Cassandra as a kick-ass woman in the book blurb? They weren't kidding. She had learned to be tough, she had to survive her childhood and her mother. When pushed, she shoved back. It wasn't very hard to like her pretty quickly.
Gage was also a pretty interesting character, although at times he had me shaking my head. He and his "team" keep her in the dark too much of the time to my way of thinking and I didn't like that. Also it was weird that they expected her to just fall in line with them, when they kept manipulating her and messing with her mind. They weren't smart enough to see that keeping her in the dark in just about everything wasn't going to bite them in the butt? Maybe it was over confidence in their abilities? And they did have abilities and some really good "toys".
There is plenty of action, twist and turns. They were some really good descriptions of locations, safe houses and things used to keep her captive and safe. The secondary people were good too. Well, not all of them were good but they were well written.
