I've really liked all but one of SS's books and this was a good one as well. Her men tend to be emotional rather than angsty or mindlessly "her-mine" and I love emotional heroes. Jack is definitely emotional and still misses Isabelle, a woman he and the company he works for rescued in Africa a year ago. SS does a good job of showing, not telling, and we really see how he has thought about Isabelle every day and how much she means to him. After the rescue he told Isabelle her feelings were based on hero worship and told himself that his were because she made him feel like a hero. Neither believed it, but he put her on the plane out of Africa anyway.
Isabelle has been in therapy to help put her life back together after two years of captivity (including some rape and torture) and is not as impressionable as she was right after she was saved. She knows what she wants and she's pretty sure she knows what Jack wants, too. I wouldn't say she's pushy (not to say that's a bad thing), but she's definitely forthright about wanting a relationship with him.
Now, a year later, someone is trying to kill Isabelle. She calls Jack and he comes running. Unlike other books I've read by authors who cross sub-genres, all the procedural elements made sense with no obvious plot holes or improbable devices.
No Place To Hide is the fourth book in The Devlin Group series and features Jack and Isabelle from No Surrender. Jack's team members went through quite a bit to rescue Isabelle in the last book. While you don't have to read No Surrender to enjoy No Place to Hide, it does give you a bit more emotion and understanding regarding some of the hesitation for certain members to get involved again where Isabelle is concerned. There is a contract out on Isabelle's life and she calls Jack for help. it is pretty intense from the beginning and doesn't really let up until the end.
I really enjoy how Stacey was able to write whole book about people being on the run form a hitman, spending most of their time hiding out in hotels and it not get boring or redundant. The characters drove the story even though there was serious danger and life or death action scenes. The relationship between Jack and Isabelle and even Devil Group member, Ty West was entertaining to watch the entire time. Something I love about a series is reading about past characters so it was fun when the other members of the group were involved, especially Gallagher, Jack's boss. Let's just say they don't always see eye to eye. Oh, and the cover of the book? Totally Jack with two guns.
The writing in No Place To Hide was smooth and the pacing was right on. I couldn't put the book down and while I really wanted Isabelle and Jack to have closure I hated finishing the book. The action scenes were great, although sometimes I had a bit of difficultly following what was happening and had to reread them to make sure I followed. It didn't affect the pleasure I had in reading the book, however. The love scenes were a nice balance to the suspenseful scenes and I feel they complemented Jack and Isabelle's relationship well. The evil dude that was paid to kill Isabelle was super creepy. Definitely made my skin crawl when he said her name so those scenes definitely caused my heart rate to spike.
While Jack was the main character in the story and Isabelle's love interest, I fell in love with supporting character, Ty. I really hope that Stacey plans another book for him. He has such a great personality, stole the show sometimes and is just beginning his career with the group. If you like romantic suspense with...well, if you like romantic suspense in general, I think you will like this No Place To Hide. Happy Reading!
The emotional, psychological tension in the story is high. The team has gone through hell once before to save Isabelle's life, and Jack lost his heart to her, but had to let her go. And now a year later, she is the target of a professional serial killer, who has never missed the target.
They are on the run for Isabelle's life, and it is tense, straining, and scary. The surprises keeps coming, keeping them on the edge. The threat to her life seems constant and unavoidable. The bond in Devlin Group is tight, the camaraderie and wit admirable and entertaining.
The love between Jack and Isabelle is raw, and profound, and so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.
I absolutely love Shannon Stacey's voice, style, type of writing. I've read everything she has written, and she's one of the very few on my auto-buy list of authors.
And No Place to Hide was worth the wait and didn't disappoint in any way, shape or form. Yes, I'm gushing, but I can't help it. I felt the emotions the characters were feeling, there are some moments that make you smile, some that touch you heart and make you tear up and sigh... I pretty much inhaled the story on one sitting, hoping it wouldn't end just yet.
Absolutely five shiny spoons for this one, and I hope there will more stories with Devlin group in the future!
