to klap that s slang for hit his head and get with the timeswomen can be just as smart independent as men are for heaven s sake If I was Tess would have kicked his ass a few times OTT alpha maleThe so many times we have to read about Tess Ben s different stance on how to deal with killers and murderers I must be honest and say that I did skim over s This sounds super good and it s on sale at for 299 I see it s the 1st in a series and I really don t want to get hooked into another series right now Does this work as a stand alone novel or is the plot ongoing throughout the series I was tempted to tag this as historical LolIt is wierd reading about a world without mobile phones and internet The mystery was good and the romance was ok I ve read much better books by NRI ll read the next one in the series soon I can definitely understand the mixed reviews on this book as I myself am mixed about my own reaction I did njoy it mostly so it rates a 3 star or higher but not sure how much higher There is a killer who is murdering young blondes and then absolving them of their sins The plot is actually very good it had a good mix of detail criminal Bambi and Her Pink Gun Volume 1 element and good guys but the buildup of suspense seemed to be lacking It s like the plot flat lined before we got to thending The supporting cast was a good group although for me they felt underdeveloped I really liked Ben s partner Ed and the role that Monsignor Logan played All the Pictures of the Pain: Photography and the Assassination of President Kennedy elements of the plot are there and I liked them but I never was on thedge of my seat It could be that too much time in the story revolved around building the subplot of how to resolve Tess being a psychiatrist and Ben being opposed to psychiatrists The romance between Ben and Tess had all the right More Than Personal elements but they just didn t sizzle together They never felt like a couple And individually I m not sure I likedither of themI have a long standing gripe on the player type characters Unfortunately Ben is such a character and it took me a while to warm up to him A long while as in I m not sure I have yetPage 57 His smile was slow and though his Feersum Endjinn eyes never left her face he took invery detail Hello I m BenUnfortunately this was his reaction to another women while on his first date with Tess Yes the woman was obvious in her interest in Ben however Ben s reaction of being receptive to her interest moves him down a number of notches in my book and definitely not worthy of hero status I m annoyed not intrigued I want to be intrigued by the character set up to be the leading man And there are a number of scenes in the book that showcase or allude to his player status Such as in typical player mode Ben takes Tess to bed picks a fight and doesn t call JERK mode I didn t put Ben on my d bag hero shelf but he came closeAnd perhaps Java: Quick Easy HTML Programming For Beginners in 40 Pages or Less!
