Kit was a fascinating heroine. She was smart and capable, and despite a series of lousy life events, she maintains a solid, upbeat attitude. Mick was also an interesting dude, kind of a smart-and-nerdy-but-hot secret agent type. They worked well together as a couple, and I didn’t find it terribly farfetched that these two would develop a relationship.
The writing mechanics were also fairly solid. Pacing was good, typos were at a minimum. (I think I only found 1 or 2 errors, and since no one is perfect, that kind of accuracy leads me to believe the book was professionally edited, which is a huge plus in my book.)
But that’s not to say it was a perfect read. A few things irked me:
All that being said, this is still a solid series starter that’s worth a read for fans of the genre.
Full disclosure: the author generously offered a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, but I didn’t take it. I downloaded via Kindle Unlimited. (Update: I later cancelled my KU subscription due to unfair author payment practices.)
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It doesn’t CRUSH the stigma, but it’s well-written enough to strongly discourage it.
