I really tried. But I couldn't cope with this writing style. I found it artificial, scattered and difficult to enjoy.

I noticed that I couldn't concentrate on the story-line and had to go back again and again to re-read what I hat read. It is normally not my art to read a book, and I blamed the story itself first, but it was most certainly the writing.

Besides, I have to confess that the case the both FBI Agents were working at and the way they approached it, was not very convincing and their investigation methods appeared amateurish, IMO.

Í failed to connect to the MCs. Maybe I should to avoid romance books where one of the MC has recently lost his partner/husband/lover. And 8 months since he's gone (here: the tragic car accident) is damn SHORT to fall in love again. It's not a bad book, and it COULD GET BETTER in the sequel, most likely you'll enjoy it.

I tried. But when reading became a chore I decided to give up.


If you can manage all this, then you probably would enjoy this book.
