Horrible, worst book I've ever read
This has to be the worst book I've ever read. I don't even know where to begin. First of all, it's SHORT, more like a short story than a book. The author makes several basic procedural and legal mistakes, some so ridiculous and glaring to anyone who has worked in either law enforcement or the courts (or both as I have) that it reads like a comedy. I was also going to comment that the juvenile, and borderline clinical, description of the love and/or sex scenes would disgust women, but then I saw he wrote romance novels under a pseudonym! Whether these books sold or not I have no idea, but I can't imagine they depicted "romance" as much as sex. Why this author chooses to have his main character a female is beyond me, he clearly doesn't understand how women think or react. All that aside, the writing style is just plain irritating! For example he repeated use of the expression "she favored her partner" to mean "she glanced at her partner". I assumed the author was from another country where such odd expressions might be used, but no, he's from Detroit. Look up the word favored, no where in the English language does it mean what he uses it to mean.
All in all, don't waste your time, it's horrible. There are so many talented writers out there, no reason to waste your time on books like this one. Serves me write for making an online purchase on my tablet in bed.
