    Hero: 7/10
    Heroine: 7/10
    Romance: 3/10
    Humor: 0/10
    Pace: 7/10
    Suspense: 6/10

    This was a good story. Not great and it certainly didn't "wow" me, but decent. I think my biggest issue was being unable to connect with the characters. I never understood why they did what they did. Why did they love each other? Besides the sex. Both in past and present that was the only explanation for their love. That's lust, not love. So, for me, the romance portion of the story felt one dimensional and fell flat.

    The suspense was a little inconsistent. When Keira was in danger, the suspense was great! Edge-of-my-seat exciting and the pacing was excellent. But as soon as the scene was done, it got boring for me. The end felt really rushed too. Which always disappoints me. The good points is, of course, the writing, steady pace overall, and a believable plot. Pretty average read. I have no regrets, it was good enough for me to not DNF.

    Better than her first

    I had a few problems with this book. Ten years ago Alec asked Keira to elope with him the next day. He never showed up, she didn't hear a word from him until he came back to 'protect' her. He never really explained why he left her, especially the way he did. And he doesn't really apologize to her or grovel, which he should be doing! He also never explained about his marriage and she doesn't ask! And what was the point of Scarlet? But all in all this was a very good book. I liked Keira and the way she handled her business. Franny was a hoot! And the bedroom scenes between Alex and Keira were so hot!! Will definitely read more than once.

    Very Good Book

    Although it was not as good as Lone Rider, this was a great book.

    fast-paced romantic suspense

    The FBI recruits ATF agent Alec Dempsey to go undercover in his hometown of Freedom, Arkansas. Alec initially refused to participate as he not only never wants to return there, but he knows he hurt the only woman he loved, Keira Morgan when he left ten years ago. The FBI persuades Alec to cooperate when they inform him the threat is to Keira. Five years ago Ian Griggs and his two brothers robbed an armored truck. His siblings died in a crossfire, but Ian lived to serve a life in prison. The loot was never recovered. Before he was caught, Ian sexually assaulted Keira. The FBI thinks he will go home for the loot and take revenge with Keira as the target. <P>Alec arrives in town early so he and Keira can get their story straight. Though Alec tries to keep Keira safe from Ian, she does not want to cooperate. Soon that high spark between them reignites into a fiery love, but as the danger mounts for Keira she wonders how soon after the peril ends he will leave this time. <P>SLOW HANDS is a fast-paced romantic suspense that hooks the audience into anticipating when Ian will strike. Alec is an engaging hero though the audience will question the way he left Keira a decade ago. Readers will appreciate Keira a brave soul running a business in a male chauvinist environment in which she refuses to take bull, but loathe Keira the wimp accepting junk from a ¿plastic¿ rival in her personal life. Still Lauren Bach furnishes sub-genre readers with a pleasant tale. <P>Harriet Klausner
