Wow, this was action packed!
I have read a few books by Kylie Scott before but not like this, it took me by surprise.
The characters; I loved Betty, she was adorable, a woman with backbone and she made me laugh, a curvy girl who said it how it was.
"I think I'd prefer a jerk who was genuinely Into me than a nice guy phoning it in. Honestly, I'd rather go adopt a dozen cats and settle into old age and isolation than be with someone who treats me as if I'm an afterthought"
I was immediately hooked on the plot, Betty started to pack up her belongings because the guy she had been in a relationship with for a year was rarely home, always working away, the sex was mediocre and she felt he was't really with her even when he was home, he always seemed distracted with work which she thought was as an insurance assessor, so when he went off on business again without having the chat Betty had asked for to discuss their relationship, Betty with the help of her friend began to pack up her belongings and move out, they filled the car and then all of a sudden BOOM, the house blows up.
Betty was an ordinary woman in an ordinary yet boring relationship as she described it and then all of a sudden her life changed, she finds out her boyfriend isn't as boring as she thought, not in his job and definitely not in the bedroom, quite the opposite in fact.
There's plenty of action in LIES, shootings, FBI agents, espionage, danger and of course romance.
A definite must read for someone who likes lots of action, drama, humor, great characters and a hea in their romance reads.
