This could have been a good book; Ms. Malone appears to have some talent. But you'd never see it. Incomplete thoughts, the constant conversation interruptions used to stop revealing information to each other.
"The killer is-"
"Anyone for ice cream?"
(These are not in the book. Used only for illustrative purposes.)
I kept expecting organ music like in the old silent movies. Ms. Malone has to stop watching soap operas.
******TONS OF SPOILERS*******
The heroine's fainted. Hunky men arrive. Wakes, tells them something about anemia and not having eaten in a long time. No one feeds her. Not until THE NEXT DAY!
She claims she's locked out of her sister's house. Jackson has called a locksmith. Asks her on date and she calls her sister, gets the new code and accesses her sister's house to take her fancy clothes...AND NO ONE QUESTION THIS. What happened to the locksmiths?
The men think she's Raina? No questions. Ridley's picture in tabloids with Jackson? Raina wonders why no one thought it was her. Sam, Raina's bodyguard, reminds her it was because her shoots were so WELL-PUBLICIZED, no one would think the girl in the picture was her. I guess the men who rescued her, you know, the male HEROES, are just plumb STUPID.
Nick gives Jackson a folder full of incriminating evidence of bank accounts that Ridley has apparently hacked and scammed, and without blinking Jackson BELIEVES they're lies. A chapter or two later, he BELIEVES she stole money from HIS ACCOUNT!
Chapter Twenty-one: the most confusing chapter I've ever read. Who's talking first? Who's mad at whom (who?)? One minute, incredulity, the next hostility.
Now, chapter Twenty-Three! Jackson's older brother, Eli, BELIEVES she's not the one doing anything wrong in chapter Twenty. Two chapters later, and he BELIEVES she's guilty.
OH, wait, it gets better.
The Bad guy catches her. The dumb heroes come to save her. Bad man has a gun on her. SUDDENLY, she remembers talking to ELI on Sunday at dinner. What about? We don't know. She says Goodbye to Jackson, and drops to the floor, JUST LIKE ELI TAUGHT HER ON SUNDAY. WTF?
And then, the finale...Jackson, "I don't deserve you." Ridley, "We both made mistakes." Jackson, "I recorded our song." HUH?
I know I sound insane. But someone somewhere has to take a stand, some time. Please.
Ridley is fleeing from an unknown someone, and goes to her sister Raina's house. Raina previously sent her an email with the code to the house, and a note that said "you are always welcome". But she's changed the code and didn't tell Ridley. So Ridley faints in Raina's back yard, and is rescued by Jackson, a neighbor who thinks she is Raina and has been mysteriously locked out. It's a holiday weekend, so supposedly no locksmith can come to let her in. She accepts an invitation to stay at Jackson's. Remember that she is afraid someone is trying to harm her, but she carelessly agrees to stay in a house with two small children, potentially putting them at risk. Days later, Ridley keeps dropping hints or blatant statements that she is not really Raina, even giving Jackson and other family members her real name, but no one seems to catch on. Ridley and Jackson are attracted to each other, and no surprise, within a few days are sexually involved. Jackson invites her to a party, and even though she has no money (according to the early part of the book, she had just enough for one night in a hotel) she is excited about shopping for an outfit for the party. But wait! Suddenly Raina gives Ridley the code so she can get in Raina's house to borrow clothes. However, she does not move out of Jackson's house??? So many bad plot twists and only a little over halfway through the book. I really don't understand 4 or 5 star reviews discussing how well written this book is. I won't be reading more by this author.
