Desire is more dangerous than anything in Deep Into Trouble, the next Unbroken Heroes novel from Dawn Ryder.
Saxon Hale lives for the hunt--taking down the bad guys, stopping them dead in their tracks. His latest mission has him in New Orleans, where people go for the party that never ends. But fun is the last thing on Saxon's mind now that he's a breath away from closing in on a vicious overlord known only as the Raven. Until an innocent young woman unknowingly enters the very deadly game...
Ginger Boyce is a librarian who's growing tired of being so buttoned-up on the job, and when she attends a conference in the Big Easy, she decides to taste the wild side of life. But when her dance with darkness becomes lethal, she's in dire need of protection--and ends up in the embrace of a man who radiates danger and desire. Soon Saxon finds himself Ginger's shield against an enemy whose power they haven't yet begun to face. But will he be able to keep his mind on his mission while the very woman under his care drives him beyond distraction?
Hmmmm…Deep Into Trouble looks to be everything I would enjoy about a book:
- Hot Special Ops hero
- Librarian heroine
- Danger, bad guys, murder, and lots of action
What happened? Well, its not that I didn’t love it. Its more that I felt very ‘meh’. First, the book is written in 3rd person. For a book like this, I usually prefer that because you get a glimpse at EVERYONE, good, bad, and in between. But, Ryder kept throwing in thoughts the characters had. Like comments they were making in their heads. It was annoying and distracting.
Ginger was…odd. Its not that I didn’t like her, but she was just not clear to me. She liked random men grabbing her ass in a bar, but then would seem all flustered over cuddling with Saxon (the hero) as part of the cover. She just didn’t make any sense to me, you know.
By about 15%, I was feeling very meh. My husband could tell because I was flipping pages very quickly. He asked if I was actually reading something or just trying to locate a passage. Thats when I knew I should just give up.
This book is going on my ‘maybe another time’ DNF shelf. Maybe I am just not in the mood? Like I said, this book has everything I love in romantic suspense, and it certainly started off with a bang, jumping right into the action.
