I had several problems from the start with this book. I’ll just catalog a few of them.
1. Trace is supposed to be the baddest of all of Sniper 1 Security. Unfortunately he lost his man card at 10% when it was revealed in his inner musings that although he had feelings for Marissa, he was scared of her brothers so he didn’t act on them. My comment on this was “what a wuss”. Yep, I actually made a note with those three words.
2. Marissa has a case of the TSTL’s. Her family owns one of the most respected Security companies out there, a company that is supposed to be really good at protection. For 12 months she has been dealing with living in safe houses after repeated attempted kidnappings and murder attempts. She knows what’s behind the attacks, but doesn’t tell her family because she’s worried about their safety. Ummm, okay. Yeah, that makes sense.
3. The name of the suspected bad guy’s organization is “The Southern Boy Mafia”. I kept expecting the “Here, Hold My Beer crime syndicate” to make an appearance.
4. Nothing anyone did in this book made sense. Example: The opening of the book Tate saves Marissa from yet another attack. He then stops at a hotel, then stays up all night fully clothed in case they need to get out quick in case of attack and watches over her while she sleeps. First up, why wouldn’t they get as far down the road as they could? I get the need to stop and rest, but he didn’t rest. If she needed to rest that bad, she can sleep in the car while it’s driving down the road. Secondly, the next night when he is understandably exhausted, they stop again but this time he sleeps completely nude. This is after yet another attack that day. Yeah, that made sense. This are just one example, there was lots more I could have used.
5. Even though Marissa was a family member and had been under attack and living in safe houses for a year, junior agents were tasked to keep her safe. It took a year of constantly being moved since the safe houses kept getting discovered and even a dead agent before the family finally sends Tate in. That’s some family love being shown right there.
6. The lack of communication among these people was un-freaking-believable. At one point, my very frustrated comment was “They all deserve to bite it”.
7. Tate and Marissa do not actually touch each other until 60% in. That’s just wrong.
8. There was a lot of obvious set up for future books going on. All of a sudden we would get in-depth and repetitious history on people who weren’t the focus in completely inappropriate spots. This would completely throw you out of the story. A little back story goes a long way, but let’s save the in-depth stuff for those characters actual books plus we don’t need to re-read the same stuff over and over and over.
After reading a book, I will usually put my initial thoughts in a note at the end. Usually this is pretty long, with lots of detail. My note for this one was “Well, that was painful, repetitious, predictable, and ridiculous”.
I’m in a conundrum. I usually love NE books but this one was just not good. Usually this would be an automatic “Heck No, I will not be reading anything else by this author or in this series”. I guess I’m probably done with this series since I hated everyone in it. I will read more NE in the future though. I think…..
Laurie’s Rating: 1 Star
This story started out with a bang, literally. The first chapter was heart pounding excitement and fun. Actually, the first few chapters were fast and furious. I will admit, once Marissa and Trace got back to Texas, the storyline slowed down a bit too much for my taste. It is more than halfway through the book before the h and H give in to their feelings, which was not what I expected at all. There was a lot of inner dialogue each of the main characters had with themselves about why they should or should not pursue the chemistry between them, but I would have liked a bit more of that push/pull between the two of them. Of course once they gave in it was fireworks, as is expected with this author. There was also a lot of secrets that the characters even admitted they shouldn’t necessarily be keeping. In some ways this slowed the pace of the story down. Again, once they hammered it all out the pace picked back up just like it did in the romance portion of the story.
At the beginning of this book there is a breakdown of the families involved in Sniper 1 Security…a family tree of sorts. I wasn’t sure if this was going to be a good thing or a bad thing for me. I’m the type of person who will constantly reference a map or family tree if it is provided for me in a book. It can distract me. That is totally my problem, I know that. It turned out that I was glad to have it in the beginning, even if I referenced it too much. But by about ¼ of the way through the book I was engrossed in the story so much I didn’t want or need it anymore. In hindsight, I’m glad I had it to start.
There were so many stories to be had out of this book. Each character has quite a few siblings. Honestly, the most intriguing story I’d like to know at this point is that of the parents. I’d really like more details on how the Casper/Liz Bryce/Emily pairings played out. Plus, I feel there is maybe more to that story than we are told. **wink, wink nudge, nudge**
The Hunter story bugged me a bit. These families own and operate the most prestigious security firm in the world and they couldn’t find out the why of Hunter’s relationship? I find that hard to believe. Ms. Edwards usually comes through for me in explaining things once the characters get their turn, so I’ll just keep the faith that she will explain this someday.
I already have the first of the Southern Boy Mafia books on my Kindle and I’m looking forward to digging in soon. No way I’m waiting another 2 months between this author’s books!
I give this book 3.5 stars but will round up to 4 since I saw potential for the other stories that will be told. Plus, I loved the beginning and the end.
I'm not even gonna get into how Trace is supposed to be a dominant in the bedroom. He was as vanilla as vanilla can be. Spanking someone a couple times and tying them to your headboard does not make you a dominant. Kinky, yes, but not a dominant. I'll pass on any future installments to this series.
