About the book
Only twenty-four hours remain until marshal Nick McKenna’s informant, Lori Carpenter, will testify against a powerful drug cartel. Nick has kept her safe for an entire year, but now all hell is breaking loose. With a team of cold-blooded assassins closing in, the by-the-book lawman decides to go rogue. He’ll risk his life for duty…and put it all on the line for his irresistible witness.
And I thought
The story was good. I enjoyed the suspense, the hunky hero and the girl.
I enjoyed the characters. Most of them.
But I couldn't help but think that when the asassin went 'Hostile' that we went from a good story/plot to just over the top crazy.
I lost count at how many people that were caught up in the chaos.
I lost count at how many pawns (assasin's helpers) she used.
I lost count at how many times she missed. This girl yes a female assasin is like the energizer bunny.
There's an attempt at a shopping mall. Then in a small town they are caught and get away then caught again. (I would love to share what happened there but that is TMI) Then get away and are chased.
And then finally get away for the night.
But once again energizer bunny is waiting the next morning and wrecks more havoc with explosives, grenades and all manner of weapons. And she has a whole new group of 'pawns' her helpers setting everything in motion.
This was truly a fast and wild ride. Maybe a bit too wild for me.
But there were things I really liked.
I enjoyed the main characters.
There is a surprise 'twist' at the end that had me scratching my head trying to decide how I felt about the book.
And I think I even like the idea that the reader is set up for book 2 in the end.
Will I buy the next one? The jury is still out on that one.
Other than the violence Hostile Pursuit is a good romance.
Two bedroom scenes happen at the very end. My Jazzy Grandma would be fanning herself and probably turning the pages!
I was offered to read Hostile Pursuit for the purpose of promoting the tour.
I was interested because I was drawn in by the cover. As I
was writing this review and collecting the book info. there is something I noticed. The cover shows Lori as a brunette. If I am not mistaken she is blonde. I have already deleted my copy so I can't double check.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
