Overview

Tall, Dark and Deadly by Lorie O'Clare

Grace Jordan is leaving her dark past behind. Having traded in her big-city badge for life in the slow lane in Rockville, South Dakota, Grace and her daughter were hoping to make a fresh, clean start. But crime is at-large in small towns, too…and young women keep turning up brutally murdered. Before she knows it, Grace has got a serial murder case on her hands—and the infuriatingly seductive FBI agent Justin Reece by her side.

Grace did not come to Rockville looking for romance. But she can't deny the chemistry between her and Justin—no matter how much she might want to. Meanwhile, things keep heating up as more women turn up dead, and a disturbing new pattern points to a killer who seems to be sending a message for Grace alone. But how could he know such secret, scandalous details about her life? Unless he happens to be someone from the past she would kill to forget…

Tall, Dark and Deadly by Lorie O'Clare is a smoking hot story that is a must read for every romance reader. Small town cop Grace Jordan is trying to build a solid life for her and her young daughter. She had overcome a horrific nightmare and came out stronger. Just a few short weeks on the job in Rockville, SD and young woman are being brutally murdered. This brings her town to the attention of the FBI and Special Agent Justin Reece. FBI agent Justin Reece is back in his hometown to assist the local law in bringing down a serial killer. Justin's ex is the towns mayor and his kids are there as well. Besides doing his job he needs to keep his family safe. As a top field agent he is a plus for any investigation but his first look at Grace has more then his work skills perking up. Grace and Justin work well together they both have excellent observation and work skills. Spending all their time together has their physical attraction exploding into an all consuming desire. When the killer's message is directed at Grace, Justin pulls out all the stops to protect her and those affected. Tall, Dark and Deadly is exceptional. Its the first book that I have read by this author and I know it won't be the last. This book had well developed characters, tantalizing back stories and a terrifying killer. The sexual chemistry is some of the hottest around. This book is one that should not be overlooked.

I have to admit that being endorsed by Lora Leigh was the reason I picked this book up. Once I got home and read the previous review, I almost took the book back, but gave it a chance. I have to agree that whoever proofed the book, didn't to a very good job, but that didn't take away from the story or the characters. The plot was really good and kept you reading just to try to figure out who was behind the crimes. The characters were well developed and you wanted them to succeed as a couple. Through the whole book you were given a glimpse as to Grace's feelings and how Justine awaken something in her dispite her horrible experiences that made you believe that anyone can overcome tragedy. The sex is hot as well:) This book is well worth reading and certainly a great first novel for this author. (I don't count Cave books are real novels, sorry) I look forward to Ms. O'Clare's next novel.

Someone should be ashamed at the poor editing (or lack of) of this book. Did anyone proofread this book before it was published? This was the worst I have ever seen. Sometimes you could not even tell who was being referred to in the dialogue. I made myself read half of the book but I was so frustrated. I will only skim the rest to find out the answers I want. Also, the heroine was held prisoner as a sex slave for five years and we are supposed to believe she is hot for sex now? Too much of a stretch for me!

Thank god I did not read the reviews for this book (I would have not bought it). I went in looking for a different book, it was out of stock. So I some how came across this book and decided to purchase it. I prayed it would be a great book, since I was going to Costa Rica for a week and needing some good reading material. I have to say this book was fantastic! Sure the writer didn't elaborate on the crime scenes or on the researching, but I enjoyed that the story really focused on the romance and the obstacles both characters encounter...which makes them more emotionally real. The only issue I really have is at one point Grace is being held during the final chapters and for her being a cop she really didn't fight back or fight well at all. Maybe the writer should have made it clear that she was emotionally attacked and fell paralyzed mentally on her attacker. But a good read and entertaining story.

Talk about repetitious useless detail! Not an intelligent read, had to stop reading 100 pages in--ugh

A very good story spoiled by too many references to the sexual attraction between the two main characters. One gets it that they are sexually attracted and it is an interesting aspect, but it is repeated over and over to the point it distracts from the content of an otherwise interesting novel.

It took a while to really get into the plot, but then it is a good story. You do become invested in Grace and Justin, their feelings for each other and the steamy sex. The stories of their pasts is well written and helps us see why they are who they are in the story. At the end, it felt like a few things came to an abrupt conclusion, almost as if the author was limited on her allowed words, so she had to write it that way. I understand this is the first book in a series of books dealing with Grace and Justin. I am definitely interested in reading the next.
