Much better than good, it's brilliant!I absolutely loved everything in this story. The plot line had my heart racing within the first pages and it was all along an adrenaline rush. All the characters are awesome and made this story special. The main characters are perfect for each others and Addy reeled me right in. The chemistry is definitely in the air. Shay is a hot musician, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of a highly popular band and she is developing her own record label. Her life and the lives of everyone in her immediate vicinity are in great danger. Someone will stop at nothing to destroy everything that Shay loves. Can Weller's team protect everyone? I don't go into the story plot, I can't even begin to explain all the things that happened in this book. Nothing is straightforward, there are always twists, turns and unexpected events. I'm new to this author and I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm so thrilled that I checked this one out. Go and read this yourselves otherwise you'll miss a fabulous story.
Former DSS Agent Addy owns her own security firm specializing in protecting Government officials from judges to Diplomats. This time the assignment is much different. As a favour to a friend, she and her team are to recommend security measures and protection to the quirky lesbian singer and entrepreneur Shay. Shay is a bit of a hippie chick and wants nothing to do with security and protection, she just wants to do her thing. The problem is, at least one person has it out for her. Threats are one thing but now they are targeting her young daughter. Can Shay get along with Addy enough to get the job done? Will she take the safety measures seriously? Will she actually listen or leave herself open to attack? These questions and more will be answered when you read this thriller. Oh my goodness! By chapter four I am already scared for Shay and by the end of chapter thirteen I'm down right terrified! Even with the capable former agent I'm not sure how this is going to end well for anyone!! I'm not even half way through the book, how will I survive the tension and apprehension long enough to finish it? Yikes!! SO, ok, yes I tend to be a bit dramatic, but really now, this is a very good and technically sound novel! Addy is a woman I could go for big time. She's fierce, strong and dangerous with a gun and a kick ass attitude. Shay is a naive granola girl that, in spite of some really rotten years as a youngster, still wants to believe in the goodness of everyone She is open and generous. Both are very easy to care about. I loved how this book made me sit on the edge of my seat despite my objections. The story was most engaging and obviously drew me in rather quickly. The different setting were vivid and detailed, I liked how I became a part of the story. I also liked the characters. Even the bad guy/girl/evil doer (you will find out) was particularly good at being nasty and mean. I adored how this story ended up everything nice and neatly. Too often there are stories that leave you wondering HOW the couple gets to the HEA. This one tells you and it left me very satisfied. This is the first book of Ms Schmidt's that I have read but it will not be the last nor will I wait long to read another.
Well writen book. 3.5 StarsThe end seemed uninspired, especially considerin all the possibilities that were hinted at. The characters could have been better developed, besides Addy, they all seem very superficial, yes even Shay who seems like nothing but a walking cliché. (I didn't like her at all as a person)Now, I almost want to tell you exactly what the problems are but for that I'd have to spoiler the book, and I totally don't want to do that for you readers out there.Although the plot was lacking in the end, it was very enjoyable to read. I don't know why but still I was contemplaiting giving 4 Stars but I will settle on 3.5 Stars :)
Addison heads a private security firm used to protecting diplomats and politicians. Shay is a lesbian folk musician who needs her protection but is reluctant to take it. Threats keep coming in and when her family is affected she has to agree to Addison’s help. I enjoyed this tense thriller and it certainly kept me wondering right until the end. How Addison and her team dealt with their mission and how Shay slowly came to accept them made for an interesting read. The romantic element was slowly teased out and as both women had issues to deal with before ever being able to commit to someone, it took them time. The last portion of the book had me holding my breath, as the threats became scarier and more immediate. I liked the two main characters a lot and found myself rooting for them. Addison seemed so closed down at the beginning and I felt that Shay’s kind and caring personality really helped her to finally start to live again. The people around them were well written and really made the whole group feel like a family. A really good read and recommended for lovers of crime fiction and lesfic.I was given this ARC free by Affinity ebook Press in return for an honest review,
This novel is the second of Ms. Schmidt's that I have completed and it was quite a fun ride. For anyone seeking context on the substance of the plot, beyond the synopsis, it was, for me, a cross between Xena and The Bodyguard. Loved Weller and her team, particularly Reyna, Shay less so, while Robo and his oddly depicted spouse, Syl, were unnecessary supporting characters. The presence of two security threats was excessive and detracted from the shaping of a deeper introspection into the development of the central villain and his relation to Shay's dysfunctional former spouse. The romantic subplot was done quite well and there was sufficient charm to the book that I would welcome another entry into the series-with greater editing. A number of grammatical/spelling errors were present throughout the text, such as the reference to George "Straight" and Weller's "strait" nose, which are common occurrences in the writing process and easily remedied prior to publication. Still, the author possesses a keen ability to present the finest aspects of the romantic thriller effectively and kept me partially awake in the wee hours and removed from a work related brief.
Fast paced story with great characters and wonderfully written descriptions
