I've been motoring through quite a few books recently so I thought I'd write about some of them.
The first one I'm starting off with is On the Run by Sue Fineman which is the first book in The Gregory Series. I'm guessing this one has made it's way onto my Kindle at some point as a free or discounted book that I thought would be worth reading. I love a good series so I'm always looking for a new one that I like so that I can follow a character through several books.
Here's the synopsis...
Who knew the man who claimed to be Neen's long-lost uncle was a big drug lord? Nobody told her what he did for a living. She didn't find out until the night of the raid, when Uncle Julio's men tried to shoot her. She got away, but she's been on the run for the past three years, staying one step ahead of the killers.
Former DEA agent Adam Gregory tried to get Neen out before the raid, but he was stabbed in the back by one of his own people. Greg is desperate to find the dirty agent who stabbed him and protect Neen from the killers. He finally finds her in the cemetery, visiting her mother's grave, but the killers have spotted her, too.
Greg takes Neen on a wild ride across the country, protecting her from the killers, but not from his love. She tries to keep her distance, but the macho dude cop is hard to resist, and he's determined to make her love him again.
I have a lot of unread books on my kindle that I'm working my way through so quite often I start one and have no idea what to expect. I rarely go into the book description as I think it's not necessary to know what's going to happen if you're about to read it. That being said, 90% of the books I own are legal dramas or crime / thrillers and the rest are running books so I know the genre before I start.
I hate to say it but this is another case of 'if I'd seen the cover I could've maybe judged the whole book by it and saved myself a load of effort'. Even when I've read the description from Amazon after finishing the book I don't think it accurately reflects the genre. I was expecting a cop thriller and instead I got a girly love story loosely based around someone running from a bad guy. A lot of thrillers include a personal story and love interest, and I have no problem with that, as usually it gives the story more depth. I was surprised by was the love story element of this novel with the very graphic love scenes. In this case I felt like this was the main point that the author was trying to get across. I'm sorry to say that the plot lacked any complexity or depth and had no suspense at all.
I rarely give up on a book and will almost always see it through, but if you're looking for a police thriller I'd steer clear of this one if I were you.
