Caine and Lexi's story in To Save His Child by Margaret Watson fits this adage to a tee. It would have been easy to take sides in this intense stand-alone novel, but to do so would have been misguided. Both Caine and Lexi had reasons for their feelings and both didn't have all the facts about the other. Now add to the plot these two adults (who don't understand or trust each other) trekking through a South American jungle, with an amazingly cooperative two month old baby, as they flee for their lives, and you have the setting for an adventure filled with extreme danger and unbelievable stress.
I loved this complex and methodical story of survival and redemption. The writing was was descriptive, with understandable dialogue that was free of vulgarities. The characters where well developed into believable personalities. The danger felt very real and scary. The life saving solutions were not easy, but seemed logical and necessary. The chemistry between Caine and Lexi was sizzling and sensual, with some descriptive sexual moments.
There was some action, but again, a whole lot of she feels this, and he feels that, and not a lot of telling...not sure how Caine and Lexie were this great love after a month together when he thought she was a selfish, spoiled brat when they weren't in bed, and she thought he was just her Dad's puppet, again when they weren't in bed...they knew NOTHING about each other except that they had great sex, and we're supposed to believe it was this great love they hung onto while they were apart??? No, didn't buy it...Lexie and Caine during their time together spent most of it assuming what the other thought and felt or having sex...and at one point Caine thinks how during their MONTH together he could easily read her face and now he can't and it made me laugh out loud!! Potential was there, but the execution was just not.
I apologize for that thought. A surprising story that will catch you from the beginning. I didn't expect the strong willed Lexie to push Caine away. Even on the run, she stood on her own two feet on a grueling journey! No complaints, no whining.
I didn't put it down until I had read it all. Nice job. Great plot. Twists and turns that will surprise you.
This was a really (surprisingly) good story and was very engaging. I liked both Lexie and Caine and liked seeing them come together.
Lexie is a nurse in a remote mountain town in south or central America. She is the daughter of a major player in the CIA and always found it hard to deal with her father's controlling personality. Lexie took nursing classes but after some issues, she transitioned into a more superficial lifestyle...which is the time period in which she meets Caine.
Caine is a CIA operative that is retiring. Caine used to be in the military but had issues with the bad intelligence that caused his team to experience losses. He moved to the CIA and mostly lived a lonely life due to his job and a messed up history.
The story starts with a bit of a flashback of Caine and then moves into him talking to Lexie's father as he's asking Caine to go get her from a foreign country, guilting him into it because of the month long relationship they were in that ended 11 months before. Caine doesn't understand why Lexie is there but agrees to go. We know from the beginning that Caine was the one that left Lexie and she never knew why but we don't find out the whole story until much later. When Caine gets to the mountain town to "rescue her" she's reluctant to go home and doesn't believe that the local rebel leader is coming after her. Caine's able to convince her that she's in danger and also finds out he has a daughter.
Caine's background isn't great and he's convinced himself that he's no good for a wife or kids, so Caine holds himself apart from Lexie and Ana (their daughter) even though he doesn't really want to. They end up spending more time together than expected because the rebel leader makes escaping the area difficult and they have to trek through the jungle. With the extra time together, Lexie and Caine do come back together but there's some drama about whether they can be together long-term. Things do work out well though and Lexie, Ana and Caine make it to safety and work their relationship out, ending the story starting a HEA together.
This was a really good story. Lexie was a very good heroine and I liked her a lot. Caine was a good guy and his initial reluctance was mostly understandable. My only real complaint is that Ana's good behavior on their trek through the jungle seemed a bit too good to be true at times. Still she's only a few months old so I guess it's not too out of bounds that she's sleeping most of the time. Outside of that, I was really pleased with the story. It was really good and engaging and I liked the characters and wanted things to work out for them so I'd recommend it. :)
