Perfect Bait by Michael Fowlkes

A spellbinding thriller, as suspenseful as it is sensual.

The richly-textured settings of Seattle's commercial waterfront, San Diego's topless beaches and the breathtaking waters off Cabo San Lucas create the backdrop for a riveting story of love, romance and betrayal, as a young couple find themselves in a fight for their lives having been set up by the FBI as perfect bait.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings From the synopsis, I was beyond excited about this enticing read with a who dun it taking place on the water, it was a dream book. Corey is the main character and the book starts in Seattle where the reader learns of his love for fishing and boating. Issues arise and he travels to San Diego where he is able to pursue again the love for fishing and boating - this part of the book was fine, but we were 100 pages in and I still didn't feel the mystery begin.

Living on a charter boat “Vintage” seemed like the perfect life for Corey, Seattle born and raised, and Jennifer, devoted and gorgeous. When the cook on another charter ship gets called away for a family emergency, Jennifer steps in to help. However, this charter group are not the usual group and trouble happens. As Corey, his right-hand man, Travis, and Travis’ girlfriend, Jasmine, rush to find Jennifer they find so much more than they ever imagined. This story went from a young man raised by his grandparents and marrying his childhood sweetheart, to cheating and betrayal, to finding the love we all dream of, to international kidnapping and never missed a step or slowed down. Of course, I loved the main characters, Corey and Jennifer, but Travis and Jasmine were my favorite. Travis being rough, tough, and young didn’t really believe in true love or that he could possibly be in love with Jasmine. Jasmine with all her wisdom and patience let her thoughts and feelings be known but id not force Travis into anything. Watching (ok reading, but I could picture it) the two of them find each other was amazing. Michael Fowlkes could not have described it better. Keeping it real, but showing so much attention to every detail. The descriptions of the people and places Corey and Jennifer went to, whether by choice or not, made the book come alive in my mind. It was almost like a movie was playing and I got to pick which actors played which parts. The sex scenes were told so both a man or a woman could truly appreciate them. Something I would think is very hard to do, consider men and women look at sex a little differently. Perfect Bait is the type of book that has something for everyone. Romance, sex, murder, intrigue, drama, and action. I definitely recommend to all my friend to read this.

This one is tricky. At times it got on my nerves, but all in all it was pretty thrilling. I thought I knew what was going to happen from the summary, but I was taken by surprise and in the end I couldn't put it down. What I didn't like was the storyline dragged and had elements that just didn't need to be included. Like in the beginning with his wife, I can see that. At the end she shows up, but I have no idea why. It's never addressed again. And all the people, conversations and work on the boat. Yes, very important to the character but it took years of this guys life to get to the story. Then once it really got going, I didn't care for all the rape talk. Yes I get it, it happened. Didn't need nearly as much detail as the guy gave. And the perverts, are guys seriously like this? Because I want to go to an island of women if they are! But once it gets into the main plot of the story it starts moving seriously fast and is full of energy. It really touched a nerve how alone they really are out on the open waters. When you have an emergency it's not like an ambulance can haul-ass over to you. Oh and there was a dog...a cute dog. But this is not a cute tale. It's full of rough language, rough men, abused women, and plenty of murder.

I enjoyed the book very much. As a fisherman I thought it might have some more than I was expected about fishing, but as I finist the first page it feels that I was attached to the book like that two women attached to their men with their love and dedication to them. Love this book and as I said highly recommended. T/U
