Let me start by saying this, This book would make a great film.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Right onto my review
I did give this book a hard time, yes in places it was slow. There was a chapter that i didn't understand why it was there, it didn't seem to add anything to the book.But, that said, i did enjoy the book.
It took me a while to warm to the characters, i did eventually like them. Daria Starbird, not sure i like her now, she still seems self absorbed,
Tom Starbird, believe or not, i like him. Yes what he did was wrong, but you can do the wrong thing for the right reasons.
Sasha Egan, to start with i didn't like her, she seemed cold, yet once she went on the run, she changed, she had to protect herself & her baby. The moment she fell in love with him, it touched my heart.
I hated Gary, for the word go, he wasn't interesting in Sasha or the baby, he was motivated by money & greed only.
Zorn i don't know what to say about him, yes he is ruthless, he has a mean streak, but...... he did love his wife, her happiness was important to him.
Maury, she was slightly pitiful, her desire to have a baby had take over her every moment.
Anyway, Tom had decided to quit the business, that is till Zorn showed up. Tom had no choice but to take the job. Zorn had something to hold over Tom, something Tom never wanted anyone to know.
So yes i enjoyed the book, it had an excitement underneath. I am glad i read it. I wish i'd read it earlier. I would of like to of known what happened to Tom, in a way i had hoped he & Sasha would get together, i felt a connection there. How could he be punished for crimes that wasn't reported? There is a few unanswered questions, like, what happened to Daria, to Maury, to Zorn? Did Sasha make a go at being Jimmy's mum? did she become an artist?
Would i read a second book? YES i would. Would i read another book by Kit Reed? YES i would.
