    This is a good book. Good story line and she did an awesome job

    This is a good book. Good story line and she did an awesome job of sucking you into the story. The only thing I didnt like about it was the fact that it is sooooo short. I would say about 60 pages. Between the beginning of the book taking up a lot of the pages before the story actually started and the end of the book with descriptions about other books there wasnt a lot left for the actual story. Dont get me wrong she did a good job telling the full story and I didnt feel like I was left hanging but for $3.01 plus tax I still felt like I got ripped off. To me .99 or in the dollar range would have been more fair. Yes I knew it was going to be a quick read just not that quick.

    I always debate writing a review and scoring a book I don't fini

    I always debate writing a review and scoring a book I don't finish, but to be fair, I ought to say why I didn't like the book.  I usually like McKenna's stories.  This story, however, was just not that good.  The dialogue was a bit unbelievable, the characters  didn't make sense to me.  I'm willing to suspend disbelief for a good, well thought out, well told story.  This just didn't meet any of that criteria for me.  




    We're supposed to believe that Max, as a PI successful enough to hire employees for his PI/security firm, instead of following the subject of his investigation follows instead the teacher of a dance class that he found attractive.  While he follows her we get this constant stream of his inner dialogue, which I didn't find to be very humorous or enlightening.  It was just annoying.  




    Jordan, the subject of Max's stalking, goes to a bar with some students from her dance class.  See's Max, gathers up her courage to hit on him, and then let's him feel her up on the dance floor and promptly takes him to her house.... Really??   Later that night, after a bit of trouble at her house, she's upset he didn't tell her that he was in security.  Um... when was he supposed to tell her?...  when he had his tongue down her throat or during sex?  




    In the first half of the book there was nothing likable about the characters.  Max comes off as a stalker, who you question how he ever gained the skill or discipline to be the owner of a successful PI/security firm.  Jordan comes off as unreasonable and paranoid. Overall, that gives me no reason to read further, neither character were likable or relate-able.  I'm willing to suspend disbelief for a far fetched story, but the characters, and their actions, should make sense within the context of that story.   




    Now, don't think I have high expectations for Shakespearean-like story telling for every author I read.  I really don't.  I just expect a good story.
