Since he saw Janey Mackay taking a dip in her bikini, Major Alex Jansen has had to quell the fire she ignites in him. Even touching her would mean death at the hands of the Mackay men. Until now, the girl of his dreams-and fantasies-has lived in a vacuum of affection, shying away from the danger she thinks men represent. Alex sets out to prove her wrong, with his torturously slow caresses.
Everyone thinks Janey’s safe now, with her abusers dead. But when someone starts leaving spine chilling notes, Alex won’t rest until she’s completely safe. And completely his-body and soul…
I know I should have read this tory in order, but the wait list at the library didn’t think I should. When I had heard about this book, everyone had said it was a scorcher! Well, the hot sex scenes did burn up the pages, but other than that, this book fell flat for me.
I loved the bones of the book. It had greatness just in the blurb in my opinion. The plot could have been wonderful. Once I started reading it though, it just wouldn’t click for me. The characters of Janey and Alex were to forced and never caught a spark in my mind. They seemed boring. Janey was all over the place and Alex was too pushy.
Now, I will say that maybe if I had read the book in the order it was meant to be read, I might have felt better about the characters. With that being said, I will wait for the first in the series to arrive and read it. If I like it, I will reread this again to see if the book will come to life to me then.
I did not enjoy this book.
I have read previous books by Lora Leigh and I am not a fan of hers at all. So it may not be that you did not read her books in order, I think it’s just her style of writing.
