To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Unfortunately not really worth more than a 3 rating. It didn't hold me like most of her others have done - she's one of my favourite authors. I didn't like near the end where the explanations and reasons for the 'crime' just went on and on and ... on ... almost like she needed to build up her word count! However, if purchased at under $4 then enough in it for a quick pleasant read.
Not as good as her other books I have read. I like a little mystery as a second story line. This whole book centered only around the on and off again relationship of the main characters. Kept waiting for more depth and intrigue and never happened.
Okay, I am getting a wee bit tired of these flood of JAK series romances given a new cover and charged big book price. I feel like this is a game of fleece the sucker!! I got this book only to find I had it sitting on my shelf under Harlequin Temptation label at a [cheap] price!!! Reprint them fine, but give the reader a decent price instead of presenting it like its a new work. The book is dated. JAK makes it readable, but I really did not care for the male lead. Keep the little woman as a weekend thing because he could protect her from his world of big business mentality, just left me cold. I am sorry, romance means sharing - the good and the bad, so this idea of him trying to shove her into a little hole and keep the world away, just was too dated. I love JAK, but this flood of little book series romances that are very dated being repackaged for higher price really is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. They reprinted some of her Stephanie James ones, but gave you a decent price. That is how it should be done.
Sadly, I found this book full of outdated ideas, such as the man "protecting" the female in ways she didn't really want or need. Additionally, the female had the outdated notion if she could just get him to love her she could bring him peace of mind. Sorry, but I felt this book was stereotypical of an outdated time with no true personal connection other than sex. On a positive note, it was a quick read with a happy ending.
Her characters are always flushed out & intriguing. They make you wish you had people like that in your own life. Krentz's discription of the area & the people who interact is so real, you think you could reach out & touch it. Good always triumps over evil & the guy always gets the girl--nice change from real life. Her hero or herione, sometimes both have to go through some difficulties to reach that gold ring, but truth usually comes out & trouble is put to rest.
