  • Not bad but...

    I read a LOT of mysteries/thrillers/crime novels and I’ve noticed something about authors. At the risk of sounding misogynistic I definitely prefer these types of novels when they are written by men, because they think like I do. Thrillers written by women invariably have sub plots revolving around romance. Thrillers written by men never really do, and when they do it’s from a male perspective (of course). There’s never any of the “he had the most beautiful eyes” or “he was so handsome and strong” type of stuff. While it’s interesting to see things through a woman’s eyes, I prefer my thrillers when written by men. Another thriller I recently read was written by a lesbian, and yes, there was some “women lusting after other women” in that book, it’s just the way the author thinks, and while I’m not offended by that, I’m just saying that this book would probably appeal more to female thriller readers than it would to male thriller readers. It’s just the nature of the beast. That being said I did enjoy this book but there are some things that slightly annoyed me, such as what does Sloane do for money? She never got paid a dime by anybody in this book, which struck me as a bit implausible. The heroine in the book struck me as a bit naive at times as well. So while I enjoyed the book I don’t think I’ll be reading any other books from this author.

    Love a story that I can’t figure who did it. Lots of twists and turns throughout the whole book. Couldn’t put it down.
  • Best thing ever

    By Ericle69
    I have never liked reading before reading this book. I got bored one day and had absolutely nothing to do so I downloaded this book and I finished it in 5 days which is crazy for me to do. Since I hated reading books. Now I'm buying and reading book, something I never thought I would do

    I have been wrapped up in my work, school and other obstacles life has thrown my way. I finally took the time to get back to my love of reading. It was a great read that kept me on edge until the end. I thank you for that. I already purchased a few more of your books.

    I noticed in the previous reviews it said there were problems with the dowload/correct book, but it appears to be fixed now. I loved the story and have read everything in this series. Fast paced, thrilling, and well written characters. Looking forward to her other books!

    This is the second review to let you know this was not the correct book under book 5 title. We pay good money for ebooks and would appreciate the correct book or a refund. Itunes does not make it easy to report this. Please help.
