Sexy, Intrigue, Mystery 8 de marzo de 2012
Por Donna McBroom-Theriot - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle
Kat Martin is an author who knows how to spin a tale (of course, she is a bestselling author of over fifty Historical and Contemporary Romance novels with over twelve million copies of her books sold world-wide in twenty foreign countries) and she still manages to come up with a great story line. Against the Night is refreshing, tantalizing, and full of mystery.

In Against the Night, I enjoyed the story line as it moved along at a satisfying pace, but kept me guessing at every turn. The characters were well developed and likable, even downright lovable. The book opened with a great beginning that instantly kept me turning the pages. Against the Night has sex, intrigue, sexy intrigue, love, and passion.

Take a naïve kindergarten schoolteacher from Grand Rapids, Michigan pretending to be a stripper, who has the hots for an ex-soldier bounty hunter hunk of a guy, and toss in a major drug cartel and you're cooking up a gumbo in a cast iron pot.

Against the Night was a fully developed story from the beginning to the middle to the end. I did not come across any grammatical errors. As with all of her books, Kat Martin has done an amazing job of presenting the reader with a wonderful love story chocked full of love and mystery and intrigue that will have you turning the pages faster than you ever dreamed imaginable, and leaving you breathlessly satisfied in the end.

Against the Night is the fifth in the Against series, and the only one I have read. Although it is my understanding that some of the characters from the previous books make an appearance in this book, I would consider it a stand-alone book.

exhilarating romantic suspense 28 de febrero de 2012
Por Harriet Klausner - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
In Los Angeles, former Army Ranger turned civilian private investigator Johnnie Riggs visits the Kitty Cat Club on Sunset to nail a skip, child pornographer Ray Carroll, grandson of a late oil billionaire. However, when Angel Fontaine works the pole, he becomes totally distracted. Out of character for him when he is on the job, he wants to meet Angel, but captures the perv when he gleefully stuffs money into Angel's G-string.

Riggs learns Angel's day job is Grand Rapids Elementary School kindergarten teacher Amy Brewer. She is undercover searching for her missing sister Rachael, who stripped at the Kitty Cat. Johnnie offers to help her, which she accepts. However, instead of just following her sibling's trail through the sleaze of Hollywood and worse, they struggle to survive as someone wants her dead.

The latest Raines of Wind Canyon (see Against the Wind and Against the Fire) is an exhilarating romantic suspense as two seemingly opposites fall in love while dodging nasty villains during the hunt for her exotic dancing sibling. Fast-paced from the moment their eyes met while she pole danced, Kat Martin provides an engaging thriller.

Can I love you enough to make you stay? 28 de febrero de 2012
Por Mary J. Gramlich - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
John Riggs is a former ranger, full-time PI, and all around do not mess with me tough guy. So why is Amy Brewer, this slip of a woman, an exotic dancer no less making his blood boil to a point of combustion. There is something beneath the exterior when you look really deep and see that her innocence is genuine. When their paths cross and she hires him to find her missing sister - Johnnie wonders if this is a step into heaven with an Angel or eternal damnation.

Amy came to find her sister and stepping into her sister's shoes as a dancer was step one. Taking a leap of faith to hire a PI to help her was a huge risk but one she knew had to happen. What Amy never foresaw was the terror she would face on land and sea in the search to find and free her sister. The scariest moments are when she is alone with Johnnie, laying in the warmth of his arms, knowing this cannot last but wishing so much that it could. She will take a bullet for Johnnie who is doing everything he can to find her sister and using resources she never knew existed. However, when everything is concluded will she run back to Michigan or stay with Johnnie and fulfill a new kind of adventure?

Kat Martin cannot stop writing incredible books in this series. Every book stands out as spectacular with character depth, suspense, and enough romance to warm any night. Ms. Martin proves that a series can go on and remain fresh and intriguing and proves it with this latest book.

Against the Night 29 de febrero de 2012
Por Jess - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
I've always liked a hero/heroine combination that puts a strong, alpha male who likes to be in charge, falling for a quiet, sort of shy and in this case, a nice kindergarten teacher, who turns out to be much tougher than she seems. Amy has come to L.A. to try to figure out what happened to her missing sister, Rachael. She starts asking questions to the wrong people and needs Johnnie's help. On the case, they track a lot of different leads, we're introduced to many people, many potential enemies and Johnnie calls in some help in the form of old friends and new to try and find Rachael.

The story felt well balanced between the relationship for Johnnie and Amy and the suspense plot of finding Rachael and figuring out what she was in the middle of, which turns out to be a lot more involved than anyone originally thought. Johnnie and Amy had instant attraction at first sight. Amy had been working as an exotic dancer, the same place that Rachael had been working at when she disappeared. Amy, hoping to ask the right questions to the right people to get information, runs into Johnnie at the club and their relationship takes off. She makes a couple decisions where I couldn't decide if she was really dumb or really smart, but I will say, she doesn't hold back or hide behind Johnnie, much to his dismay. It's a sweet relationship between them, but one where Johnnie knows that nothing more can come of it. He's not the marrying kind, not looking at ever having a family, she lives in another state, etc. etc. etc. This got a little old as they both believed that even though they loved each other, this wasn't a long term relationship. That said, I did enjoy their scenes together, the scenes in the bedroom...living room...on the beach - all crazy hot and I liked them as a couple.

The suspense and figuring out what exactly happened to Rachael had me flipping the pages at a quick pace. It's been awhile since the suspense portion of a book really grabbed my attention above all other story lines, but I was fully into Rachael's story. The resolution to finding Rachael doesn't come at the very end of the book, there's more to figure out, and I liked that it ended up not just being about getting Rachael back, but going beyond and putting the clues together that ends up with a few fingers being pointed at guilty parties.

A cheat sheet would have been handy going in because there are a lot of different players in this story. It's a little hard to keep track of who's considered good, who's a suspect, who knows Rachael and when - there are many people being mentioned and showing up on page and I was rereading parts to keep them all straight. One portion of the suspense plot that bugged me was a loose end with another missing woman. She's referenced in one scene and I kept waiting to hear what happened to her, but there was never any mention of her again. I think it's safe to assume what happened to her, but I was distracted when it felt like she was just forgotten about which bothers me because of the scene and condition she was found in.

AGAINST THE NIGHT is book 5 in The Raines of Wind Canyon series and can absolutely be read as a standalone. The main romance between Johnnie and Amy was a nice match; Johnnie is especially swoon worthy in many scenes when he's trying his hardest to protect Amy. I was really drawn to Rachael and it packs a solid punch as an interesting side story, one I wish there had more on. An overall nice read, and even though there are a lot of characters packed into the story, that at times felt distracting, the relationship with Johnnie and Amy was well done and enjoyable.

I've read each one of these "Against" books faster than Kat Martin can get them written. Of the series, Against the Night was my favorite. I think because Amy "Angel" is funny! She is the cutest and sweetest character of any of the other women in the series because she is straightforward and just comes on out with it. It's hilarious when she looks at Jake Cantrell (ooo lala!) as he is all geared up ready to kill someone and Amy says to him, "Nice to meet you. Thank you for coming." I roared. A Kindergarten teacher and yet how many of them wouldn't secretly love to swing half naked around a pole? It's funny. And the things John Riggs says to her are also funny. They're a perfect match for each other. I really enjoyed the humor, the romance, the mystery, the suspense and as always.....these men!! Thanks again Kat Martin. I will be waiting impatiently for Against the Mark, Against the Odds and Against the Edge!
