A massive Christmas tree circled up to the dome, so laden with ornaments she could almost hear it groan.
I’m immune to you. I’ve developed antibodies against the virus that is James Armstrong.
I look forward to never seeing you again.
Jamie, if we’re going to judge on stereotypes you’d be grumpy and pasty and miserly and I’d be a kid with a bloated stomach and flies in my eyes.
That had gone so far beyond her expectations she couldn’t recall what she’d expected.
I struggled with this book, valiantly I might add. It was laborious work, as I had no knowledge of the characters or experience with the previous installments in this series, which left me frequently at sea as I made my way through this complicated story with a full roster of complex and terse characters. Sigh, don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t a poorly written book, it just didn’t ring my bell. I enjoyed several of the storylines that I could follow but I couldn’t keep all the balls in the air, which left me feeling dim-witted and exhausted… I freely admit that I would make an extremely poor spy as I am far too lazy and wouldn’t be able to keep all the lies straight.
The main character of Samira had stumbled onto dangerous information through her deceased fiancé, information that had lead to his death and continued to place her life in jeopardy. She had been living in the shadows for over a year, which only heightened her already anxious nature. She was paranoid and prone to panic attacks as well as over thinking every single issue. She also repetitiously looped back to obsessive thoughts. She was not a character I could warm up to, and I really tried but I didn’t find her endearing; I found her tiresome. But of course, I would adore the flawed yet protective male lead of Jamie with his lovely Scottish burr – yummy. Too bad they spent 95% of the book fighting their attraction.
It's a good story with strong characters. From the first page, things are moving and in flux. Samira is in hiding. Someone wants her dead and the information she can access destroyed. She's been hiding for a year and uses her paranoia to help her survive. A computer expert, she gets technology and she uses that to help her plan ahead and get away from those that chase her. But from the moment she is running again, things are a mess going from bad to worse. Enter a lover from a year ago and things could get interesting.
Jamie is a legionnaire. Choices in his past have left him a solider hiding from his pain. Yeah, he slept with Samira and he really hopes she doesn't bring that up. He's there to get her to a friend and then he's out of there. But his past keeps popping up until he can't keep things from Samira. But he'll do what it takes to keep her safe.
I like both characters. They are well written. The story flows along fine. I guess my issue is that this story is heavy on the suspense and light on the romance. And I really am a romance reader at heart. So, while I enjoy suspense around my romance, I prefer more romance than this one offers.
If you've followed the series or the author, you're going to love it. If you are a suspense reader that doesn't mind a little romance on the side, you'll love it. But as for this reader, it just wasn't as good as I wanted it to be.
