Lisa and Jack were high school and college sweethearts in sunny California, until circumstances, including a job offer for Lisa in London, tore them apart. Five years later, Lisa is back in L.A. and Jack is a very rich businessman with a beach house in Malibu. Through work, they meet again and soon that old magic starts weaving its spell. Lisa worries Jack has remained the selfish, entitled boy she knew; Jack is determined to prove her wrong. Indeed, something is very wrong, but not with Lisa and Jack. Their love reignites like a California wildfire as Jack tried to deal with a mysterious enemy who seeks to bring him down…and maybe Lisa with him.
The villain is this novel is equally well executed. Scary creepy, readers will be shocked at what is at stake and how Lisa and Jack each use their own brand of smarts and strengths to get out of dire circumstances alive. Jack not only built upon a successful family business, but took it to heights beyond even his own imaginings. He somehow remained down-to-earth and humble, sense of humor intact. Lisa, no longer a lovesick college girl, has honed business talents of her own and it is a pleasure to watch her grow in awareness about the truth of her split with Jack, and the part she played in their break up.
Readers will root for these charismatic lovers, and quickly turn the pages until the explosive final moments.
Ring Me Later has classic romance elements tucked inside solid suspense story telling.
Lisa Carpenter wants to achieve goals in her career. She has worked hard and, like any normal person, enjoys building up her knowledge and skills to succeed. Achieving wealth and power at a young age, Jack Barron didn't realize the importance of letting Lisa achieve her goals using only her own hard work and skills. He used his influence to interfere in her job. Lisa was also young and didn't know how to stand up to Jack, keep her independence, and still be in a relationship with him. She left him and the United States and spent five years in London working for Sarah Fitzpatrick learning how to organize special events. Now she has parlayed that experience into a job in fundraising at a hospital back in LA, where Jack lives. Guess who her first big donor is? Yep. Jack Barron! And not because Lisa works there. He doesn't even know that when he makes the donation, doesn't even know she's back! But Lisa doesn't know he doesn't know...Is he trying to meddle in her career again? Meantime Jack's friends pressure him into a bet that he'll show up at one of the friend's wedding with a serious date. (He's been a recluse since Lisa left.) Well, you can see where this is headed!
Unfortunately there is someone powerful and very evil on the perimeter of their lives, and that person isn't going to let these two just work out their relationship issues in peace. There's also that little matter of the bet that Jack didn't tell Lisa about...
There's a totally unexpected romantic subplot at the end that made me so happy.
This is a great read if you want a thoughtful, realistic contemporary romance with enough suspense to keep you guessing and turning the pages but not so much that you are horrified, terrified or grossed out (yuk factor). I personally don't like serial killer plots in romantic suspense, too much gore, or learning new ways that villains can do horrible things to their victims. This book doesn't have any of that. It's just scary enough, no horror.
I want a sequel for Sarah Fitzpatrick, and in that sequel I want to see a glimpse of the happy endings being lived by the characters in Ring Me Later.
