A strong female lead paired with an enthralling plot
Kristen Connor is a decorated detective, catching one of Chicago’s worst serial killers in Gilroy’s previous novel, Cuts Like a Knife, but her stardom is not going to help her solve this murder. Instead, Kristen must rely on her intellect, martial arts skills, and tenacity to seek out the truth when she goes undercover in the world of the rich and famous, posing as an escort herself. But not everything is as simple as it appears, and the wealthy have a unique ability to hide the truth.
Balancing a rocky romance with FBI hunk Austin, her loving but sometimes suffocating family, coaching her niece’s soccer team, the Snowflakes, attending church, and solving a few murders, Kristen is a busy woman. But she is a strong, smart, and driven female character that compliments the well written plot and twists of Every Breath You Take. Readers are in for some surprises and shocks, and an ending that will leave you waiting for Gilroy’s next novel.

Starts slow but picks up quickly
This book is very well written and researched but starts a little slow. But once things start moving hang on to your seat. It's a wild ride. It's only because of the slow start that I give it 3 stars otherwise it would get 5.

While I found the book easy to read, it seemed a little boring... This was an easy book to read in the evening after work, definitely not a book that kept me up to finish it, but not a bad story either.
To be fair, I did not read the first novel so maybe I was missing something. Overall just an okay book.

A sequal to "CUTS LIKE A KNIFE", GOOD.
This is the second book of a series. It is 320 pages long. It was not a free book. This novel was not as good as the first one, "CUTS LIKE A KNIFE." There are many run on sentences, lack of punctuation, misplaced words and incomplete sentences in both novels. It is written in first person. I found this novel a little hard to get into, it started off slow and jumped around a good bit. The main character was not as caring as she was, in the first book. I paid $2.99 for this book. I consider this a reasonable fee for a nook book. There is quite a bit more descriptive gore and violence in this police, crime, murder, Christian, mystery. Whew! How is that for a genre? There is a lot of religion. This series does not have any sex, cursing, rape or the paranormal in it. It is a good, clean read. Because the story seemed to move two steps forward and three back at times, the escalating, descriptive violence, first person format, editing problems, and personality changes in the heroine, I am giving this novel three stars. I rated the first book higher. "EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE" by Gilroy was still a very good read and worth my time. For mature sixteen year olds and up. There is enough action in this book, men might enjoy it also. It really is not a chick book, even though the heroine is female, she came across as just one of the guys. I liked it better when she was more feminine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
