This was a quick, fun read. The characters were likable and easy to root for. I appreciated how the main character, Natalie, a strong independent woman, was fighting her way out of her sheltered, only-child upbringing.
The story line was intriguing and the suspense was palpable. I thought it was interesting how we met the two main characters. Typically, when there’s “undercover work” in a book like this, the audience is introduced to the situation before the main characters encounter one-another. In this story, the characters got the jump on us! They had already begun forming a relationship, which helped to move the story along at a fast clip.
I enjoyed the relationship between Natalie and Ryan, too. I found myself yelling out loud, “Just TELL her!” and “Just TRUST him!”…always fun to earn sideways glances from my kids. 🙂
