Trust the enemy?
Desperate to escape her kidnappers, Kody Cameron can turn to only one man… and he’s holding a gun. Outnumbered and trapped in the deadly Everglades, she has little recourse, but something in this captor’s eyes makes her believe she can trust him. Does she dare to take the risk?
Undercover agent Nick Connolly has met Kody before and knows she might very well blow his cover. Though determined to maintain his facade, he can’t let Kody die. He won’t. And his decision to change his own rules of law and order are about to make all hell break loose.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know I am a huge fan of this author. I have enjoyed her Krewe of Hunters series along with most of her other books. The way she weaves in historical fact into her stories in adds to the appeal and enjoyment for me. Law and Disorder is the first in a new series put out by Harlequin's Intrigue imprint. I was so excited to get a new series that I eagerly dove into the book.
Unfortunately, this book didn't really do much for me. The length really had a lot to do with it. It was too short for me to really get into the characters and want to root for them. Don't get me wrong, the story starts off with a gun in Kody's face, literally. I was expecting a fast paced suspense. I didn't get it. The writing felt disjointed and repetitive. The dialogue was a bit cheesy at times. Honestly, I kept thinking someone else wrote this book. It wasn't the quality that I know and usually get from this author.
One thing I did like was Kody. I love a strong female lead and she fit the bill. She just wasn't enough to carry the book for me. I definitely didn't buy into the love story. How did they fall in love exactly? The HEA ending was just way too fast for me to believe. I would have been fine had there been no romance in the book at all.
I'll probably check out the next book in the series. I'm always hopeful that a series will get better as the books come out.
