If I'd read this book before I read all of Melinda Leigh's Morgan Dane books I probably would've enjoyed it much As it was however I enjoyed this the least out of all the books I've read by this author to date I went into this one knowing that it wasn't up to par with the series knowing that it was one of if not the first thing the author has ever published However I still couldn't help but feel disappointed by itThere are some things that I absolutely adore about the Morgan Dane series First the H isn't a manho and there is absolutely no mention of OW from his past The series also features a strong h who I really admire She isn't a slave to her libido and and she doesn't notice how studly the H is during really inopportune times The intimate scenes are all fade to black which I also really appreciate There isn't any OTT drama and the characters also take necessary precautions In other words they don't act like they have no brainsUnfortunately none of these aforementioned elements were present in the book She Can Run The H is nearing 50 and has never had a serious relationship The way he mentions offhandedly the he hasn't gotten laid in a couple of months made it seem like that wasn't normal for him He also mentions that he's been sexually active since he was at least 17 so that means he's been sleeping around for three decades No thanksThe h seriously made me mad She's on the run for her life her husband has tried to and is still trying to kill her and she can't help but notice how hot the H is Maybe the thought slipped through one time Fine She's only human But to notice it every time he's around When someone is trying to kill her No Just no Have some control woman You're not just a sack of hormonesThen there's the OTT drama There are three separate characters who are out to get the h It's a wonder she hasn't had a nervous breakdown by now That by the way is the only thing I liked about her Back to the baddies they're all trying to torture and kill her kidnap rape and kill her or simply have their skeevy way with her I would not want to live in this town It seems like it's full of creepers And knowing that the h is in danger the H leaves her alone constantly Sure he has a top of the line security system installed but still Then surprise surprise she gets attacked This happens than once Ugh I'm sorry I just couldn't with this book I tried to like it but I'm not sure if I can continue on with this kind of story I do think that every installment of the Scarlet Falls series was better than this book I might just stick with Morgan Dane and Lance I adore those two I guess it's hard to live up to the best

Having already read some ML stories I expected so much from this but it just didn't deliver It was well written and I still enjoyed the story but it lacked the drive the oomph making it run of the mill type of readHoping the next one delivers

She Can Run She Can #1Elizabeth was a young widow with two small children when she met Congressman Richard Baker Handsome and wealthy with a sparkling public image Richard seemed like the perfect man to provide the security that Beth and her kids were craving But when she uncovers a dangerous secret about her new husband Beth realizes he will go to any lengths even murder to keep it After barely escaping with her life she and her children flee They even. Just some thoughtsI have read Melinda Leigh before and was looking forward to starting this series Initially I liked the story and characters but was uickly irritated by the immediate attraction that developed between Elizabeth and Jack They are both older characters and I was hoping for a mature romance My complaint is not only how uickly the attraction developed between the Hh but that it didn't seem realistic to the characters She's on the run from an abusive husband She's described as pale underweight and jumpy I can see where he becomes suspicious of her immediately based on cop's gut instinct and protective of her and her family at the same time This worked for me What didn't work was the set up of thong panties and his juvenile reaction to themAnd in regards to her side I'm not sure that an abused woman on the run would be thinking of him sexually so uickly It just didn't fit And for me personally the thong panties just seemed all wrong You're on the run with children one being a pre teen son and you even share the bed with your daughter I just don't see hanging thong underwear in the bathroom as standard operating procedure Nope I would have thought some boy cut briefs that could be thrown in the washerdryer would be the mom thing Sorry this just hit me as off and came up than onceIt was also excessive when every male has to notice this pale underweight and jumpy female sexually Now I get the one guy like to target the weakOK enough about that rantThe book moved a little slow but I did like the plot and the characters There are two suspense plot lines one is the abduction and killing of women and the other is the secret that has forced Elizabeth on the run Both were developed well and wove together well within the story The primary and secondary characters were nicely developed and I like Ms Leigh's writing voice And I really liked Jack's dog who was woven into the story really well She did have a slight paranormal aspect to one character that was built up and then kind of fell a little flat And there was one scene that had me thinking along the lines of TV audience saying don't go out there but I was able to deal with itI did enjoy the read and I intend to continue reading this series35 Stars
