I was disappointed that Randy was not in this story. He and Holly had such an emotional connection in the first book and he was very likable. There was a building of sexual chemistry and tension between them when the first book stopped. Randy was a very likable character. There is nothing that he would not do for Holly including trying to be a better man and being willing to die for her. The first story was from both Randy and Holly's point of view. Here, it was basically from Alex's POV.
Alex is an FBI agent working with her to take down the mob and he is a new character to the series. There were problems with the story being from his point of view. For one, he is a cold fish and I found him not very likable. Therefore I did not like the story from his point of view. He seemed so removed from everything, untouched by events. It was more telling than showing. In addition, being first person did not give a complete picture if it was from a dual point of review. There was no chemistry nor romance between him and Holly. None. She had more chemistry with Victor, a married mob guy with a pregnant wife. The story included something that I dislike that authors tend to do with smex scenes. It is when the hero and heroines have a lot of what I will call "almost" situations. They are almost at the point of having smex with someone or something interrupts them. This started happening around the 70% of when the story was over, happening on more than one occasion. The relationship was not consummated until around 80%. Then when it was, it was not good, at all. Holly was a virgin and it hurt and no one found completion with the act. While realistic for a person's first time, not something that I want in the stories that I read. The other times were bland, lacking in passion and telling as opposed to showing. Alex and Holly knew that they would not stay together and it did not seem to bother either one of them. So not romantic. I am wondering why the book was from Alex's point of review when my impression is that he will not be around much in the remainder of the stories
I was surprised to find it narrated from Alex's point of view, but certainly not disappointed. Alex's insights and reactions to Holly rounded out her character beautifully.
Holly is playing a dangerous game, and I can't wait to read MISFORTUNE OF BIRTH to see how the game plays out.
