Ciao, amici. It’s Tuesday again; time for me to share something I recently read. This time, its from the thriller genre.
★★★★☆ Solid Story, Great Hero, So-So Heroine
I downloaded this because I thought it was a psychological thriller. I was surprised to find it was a romantic thriller (which I don’t mind at all and even write on occasion).
It all sucked me in. Except for the heroine.
The hero is everyone’s book boyfriend. Well, any girl who likes a bad boy will like him. He isn’t even BAD, but he does have an edge that keeps people on their toes.
The plot is riveting. The heroine’s twin was abducted when they were nine, and she went into law enforcement to find out what happened. Seems like a typical start for a cop. But it’s not. Once all the threads were untangled and I could see how everything ties together, I was delighted with the plot.
It was the heroine that left me wanting. There were times she was so green, so innocent, that even with her tragic backstory, I couldn’t believe she was in the FBI. Then there were other times that she exhibited extraordinary bravery. Well, she’d think it was courage. I thought she was stupid, rash, and reckless.
If this is a series, I would read the second. Hopefully the heroine will have developed to everyone else’s level by then. This one is a solid four out of five for me.
Is this a genre you enjoy or are willing to try? Did you maybe read this one? Let’s talk about it below.
