Strong start--absolutely loved the first half. Couldn't put the book down as Hope and Sam raced to find the killer and Faith dealt with the drama of the rafting trip from you-know-where. The second half, though, totally lost it for me. Way too much was going on, both to and with the characters. Everything was neatly and conveniently wrapped up in the end--much too neatly and conveniently for my taste. Started out in four star territory, ended in two--averaging in at three stars total. Still, I'd like to see the series continue, and hope for more consistency in book three. (I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.)

3.5 *Book source ~ NetGalley On her way to start her vacation with her sister, Faith, park ranger Hope Banning gets a call that sends her to a plane crash on a mountain top. Hope persuades Faith to continue on to the white water rafting trip and tells her she’ll catch up when she’s done. Except this assessment and rescue turn out much different than Hope could have believed and now she and civilian Sam Rutherford as well as Faith and several others are fighting for their lives. This story is a bit frustrating, but overall not a bad read. There is plenty to love about the characters and the writing, but the plot stretches the bounds of believability a bit. Add in majorly stupid decisions by smart people, physical trauma that doesn’t seem to slow anyone down and an ending that drags along for far too long and the balance ends up somewhere in the middle of the road. It could have been better, but it also could have been worse. I do love the characters though. They seem so real.

My first time reading this author so i probably wont read her again..im not into one-nite stands being a normal lifestyle even for secondary characters. The story was too drawn out...

Fantastic Romantic Suspense-- I loved it! FREEFALL (Aftershock Book 2) by Jill Sorenson is an outstanding Romantic Suspense. It runs 245 pages (minus front- and end-matter), and I found myself hesitant to put it down, and eager to read when I really should be doing other things. The suspense was incredibly well done...making it a compelling read and a page-turner. I enjoyed the slowly revealed back story of our characters (hero, heroine, and secondary peeps), illustrating how similar our H/h are...and yet how different. The carefully crafted characters contribute extensively to the enjoyability of the book, and their pasts were both a source of conflict and the refiners fire that made them better people when together. The chemistry was believable, the personalities consistent throughout, and the secondary characters a valuable part of the story. I loved it! Kudos to the author. Sensuality Level: Spicy Language: R-rating (yet very much in character)

4 STARS I liked it but I liked the first book of the series more. I had a hard time connecting with a few characters. But Sam was kind of written that way. In fact Owen was the only guy I really liked and that in part was from the first book. I really liked Hope character the best. I think she was brave, courageous willing to risk her life for her sister and the rest of campers out their. Freefall was definitely fit the book in many ways. It had drama, mystery, suspense, lots of action plus had some sex scenes that I admit to skipping over. Every time things were going smooth something else would happen. Faith and Hope are going on whitewater raft trip. Every year they spend a week or so together for vacation. Hope planned this trip. Faith is not a wilderness girl. As they are packing up Hope's work calls her. Faith tells her not to answer. Hope is a park ranger at Sierra National Park. She has to answer. a plane had crashed down at night in the park the witness who saw it was Sam a former Olympic athlete who was climbing at night. Their is no one else who could hike up with her right away so Sam goes with her. He is famous rock climber and rich. Hope had a one night stand with him that ended badly. When they reach the plane the pilot is dead from gun shot. They start tracking the killer and find hidden bags of money and dope. Hope is worried that a killer is on the loose in the park. She is worried about her sister that she talked to going on the rafting trip without her. Plus she is worried about the other campers. Hope takes pictures with her phone of the murdered pilot and the dope for evidence and calls in the alert for the missing killer. Hope's boss calls her back into base. She is not leaving her sister Faith out their with a killer on the loose. She disregards the order. Sam tries to talk her out of it but follows her so she has some back up. Sam was in the earthquake in Aftershock. He still has memory problems from it. He does not remember his fiancée Melissa death or how she died. He is still numb to himself. He freaks out when someone around him does risky stuff but he can no problem. Faith flirts with men a lot. She has broken up with her boyfriend because he did not pay attention to her. She flirts with Jay on the raft. Someone is using the park to run drugs. Who can Hope trust? Is someone on the take at the park? Why was the pilot killed? It makes me want to go camping and hiking or just get out of snow.(It is march still when I read this) This book has heroes you don't expect and lots of bad guys and jerks. Even wildlife is scary. Full of action. After you get to know more about some of the characters they are more you like them. I want to read Owen's story next. I was given this ebook to read and asked in exchange to give honest review by Netgalley. Pub Date May 21 2013 Harlequin Publisher imprint Harlequin HQN ISBN 9780373777952 384 pages
