Ein tolles Buch, voller Spannung und Action welches sich leicht und flüssig lesen läßt. Am besten liest man es in einem Rutsch durch.
That being said, I did give this book 3 1/2 stars. (Amazon really needs to start allowing the 1/2 star ratings!) As little a part as the romance played, she still managed to create some chemistry between our hero and heroine, and the one love scene was pretty hot! And as for the suspense part, I thought she did great with that. She certainly kept me turning pages! It was an amazingly fast, fun, and exciting read. I just had one big beef with the character of Jess that kept me from really liking her and that was her vacillating between trust and distrust of the hero. It was completely believable at first, but after the guy has saved her life about 4 or 5 times, not to mention the many scrapes and jams he rescued her from, her constant wavering seemed ridiculous! But still, all-in-all, an enjoyable read! I just think she needs to take the plunge on over to strait-up suspense, as Tami Hoag did before her. (And Sandra Brown needs to do, also.) If we're not plunking our money down for romance we won't be disappointed!
Jessica Ford is a young lawyer working her way up in a dog eat dog world. She has decided she will do what it takes to get ahead at the prestigious firm where she is employed. Jessica comes from a working family and if it takes working 24 hours a day she will do it. The rest of her family is made up of gorgeous women including her mother, but Jess feels left out in the looks department she is small and wears glasses. Nevertheless, her brains and determination are better than most, and so when her boss calls late at night and asks her to pick up the first-lady and see her home in a limo, Jessica hurries out to the hotel to pick her up. Nothing goes right, the first-lady is drinking heavily and seems scared and determined to escape the surveilence of the Secret Service. The next thing she sees is a fire and feels unable to move toward it. Laying on the ground she is found by the head of Mrs. Cooper's Secret Service. The limo is totally destroyed by fire and everyone in it are dead except Jess. Jess is quarrentined from the press and almost as soon as she opens her eyes she sees a man dressed like the SS trying to inject something into her IV. She screams and rolls off the bed just as Mark Ryan runs into her room. No one believes her and she doesn't know who to trust. She remembers things that tell her the accident was no accident. But who to trust, and who to tell? Definitely not the SS.
Mark Ryan is the head of the SS assigned to the first-lady, Annette Cooper. He knows she has a drug problem, so he thinks the accident was due to her wanting to score some drugs. However, little things do bother him. He trusts the SS and they have never had a traitor working for them. He knows Jess is lying when she says she doesn't remember and so he will watch her closely. Then people around Jess and the first-lady start dying and Mark wants to know, what is going on? But the more he pushes her the more Jess doesn't trust him. Mark is used to covering up for the president and his wife and is determined that whatever happened, it will not touch the President or the SS.
The action is fast, the story is interesting, and I did enjoy it, very much. I recommend it highly if you enjoyed her earlier books.
Mrs. Cooper was acting very erratic, and when they reached the limo was adamant about losing her secret service detail. She was very angry and afraid, but Jess did what she could to calm her. She was making comments about being held prisoner, and before any of them realized what was happening, the car crashed, changing Jessica's life forever.
This was a very thrilling read! Jess unknowingly becomes involved in something that she doesn't know how to get out of. Her life is constantly in danger, and is out of her control. That is very disconcerting to someone that used to living an orderly life. If only a couple of the things that happened reflect the true nature of our secret service, it is pretty frightening. Strong characters with minute-by-minute action make this a good one not to be missed.
