Rachel's character is a very strong character. This is her first time as a field agent and she is tough and determined but also a little unsure of herself as a field agent. She was emotional at times, a little naive when it comes to Emotion and relationships but increadibly smart and tough when she needed to be. She had a dimensional character that I really enjoyed. Owen didn'Alpha, over protective male lead and actually complimented Rachel's character quite well. Once again in this book, we got to be inside the villian's head. Kristine Mason write's her villian's with all the creepiness, believability and for a villian they also have dimension. I like knowing what drives my villians to the evil things they do and getting a peak into their deranged minds.
The mystery was good, and the bad guy isn't completely obvious. This is a well written romantic suspense. I enjoyed the relationship between Rachel and Owen and liked that they didn't jump into bed right away (more on this timing in a minute). Owen and Rachel had a long history of being friends and then not. It was hard to understand why Owen was so attracted to Rachel when she was so mean to him until you really understood that for years they had been very close friends until "the Christmas incident". Then you could understand both Owen's attraction and why Rachel treated Owen the way she did. The romance was very well done and believable except for one thing: When Owen and Rachel finally got together it was when the buildup of the suspense was at it's greatest point and we knew the young man didn't have long to live. It just didn't strike me as believable that they would take a time-out from investigating to have sex and not continue to follow up on research/leads during that time period. The pacing was just off, the book centered around the romance and the issues they had when what I really wanted to know was what was going to happen to the young man who was being tortured. I thought the issues were believable just not well timed within the book. That took this book from 5 to 4 stars for me. But overall, I really enjoyed it.
I love these CORE series books. The killers are so vile but yet sometimes surprise you and the twist the author can throw in never cease to amaze you.
I've read all the CORE series books to date but had somehow missed this one. But like all the others I loved the characters, the story, the killer(s) (yes even though they do the most horrible things imaginable the author writes them in a way you understand why they became the way the did and even at times feel sorry for them).
I did not want to put them down and I did not want them end. I loved the descriptions in how it made me feel and understand the character and their mind set. I truly felt a part of them. Of course there were times I wanted to kick them in the ass but that is besides the point.
Kristine, thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. I will be looking for more from you and considered yourself followed.
