I found this book while wandering aimlessly through Amazon’s myriad of titles. I like the Cover candy and thought I would give it a go. I was immediately enthralled by the heroine, Odessa Trodat. She is one smart woman! I am OVER reading naïve females that need the hero to save them, I want more characters like Odessa that are smart, athletic, and have an interesting career that does not involve bling!
On a cruise by herself, Why she is traveling alone is never mentioned, that has ported in Puerto Vallarta. Our Shero is nearly kidnapped until Saxton Blakemore, our hero steps up and offers a drowning woman a branch to tow herself in.
Can I just say thank you? Smart and streetwise my girl takes the branch and the novella gets good!
The story starts off quickly and is easy to follow. The ending is good as well.
Odessa is an amazing Shero who could carry a series all on her own. She is book and street smart with a great sense of humor and positive attitude.
Odessa’s father. I wish that the Mrs. Gaines would have given us another reason for Odessa’s familiarity with weapons. To all you authors out there, women serve in the military to! She could served a tour for an education, her mother may have been the soldier in the family. Or she hunted (I have met several women of color who love to hunt game). I just wish that this fail-safe character type would have been left at the computer and another plausible explanation was created
This book is good and I will read its sequel!
