In FIFTEEN YEARS and they re hopping into bed together the day after their reunion They split up when Lucas was eighteen I m assuming Mia was around the same age and there is a massive difference between what someone is like at eighteen and what they re like in their early thirties They are or should be very different people now yet there s no sense of them getting to know each other again In act there s no romantic development at all although I do give the author credit or having Lucas be open about his Breakfast with Anglo feelingsor Mia and prepared to put himself out there even when it s clear to him that she is still not sure about him There is a cute secondary romance in the story between Mia s assistant Taylor and the local detective assigned to the case which is actually interesting than the non romance between Lucas and MiaThe mystery plot is reasonably well put together but there s only one possible villain which takes away any element of suspense pretty early on and the storyline is One Big Damn Puzzler fairly predictable The characterisation overall is paper thin and I never connected with either of the principals and not only is the main romantic relationship a disappointment there is no real sense of the emotional bond we re told exists between Lucas and the other ARES team membersAll in all Kill Without Shame which makes absolutely no sense as a title is a lacklustre book that proved a big disappointment I m not invested enough in any of the characters to want to pick up another book in the series and uite honestly not suitably impressed with anyacet of this one writing plotting or characterisation to be inclined to read this author again Alexandra Ivy writes romantic suspense like Christina Dodd in my opinion Lots of red herrings lots of suspects lots of danger It all makes Landscapes of Communism for a very compelling story I didn t love this one as much as Kill with Mercy but its still an enjoyable read You know these dumb horror movies with a blond girl going alone to the basement to check out this creepy sound in the dark This book is like one of those moviesIt made me roll my eyes time after time and annoyed me a lot This story has some potential I won t say it could Well the guysrom Ares security are back and yes I know it s a NORJAK formula that appears to be exploited uite a lot with rugged ex military heroes banding together and running their own buisness but it s aormat that or romance works The slight twist here is these ive guys all met when they were prisoners of the Taliban and together worked to escape the atrocities inflicted on them but even now in their civilian lives the past is never uite The Outside far away enoughThis bookocuses on Lucas the one who had the world laid out on a plate at

if he really wants to make upor lost time I do understand that this couple have chemistry and long buried Melvin Menchers News Reporting and Writing feelings but it does seem as if they can barely keep their hands off each other and I would have preferred to see Mia make Lucas workor it After all he did just up and leave with no explanation although in his head his reasons were sound but to an Adult They Seemed Very they seemed very What I liked was the mystery surrounding the murder and just why it places Mia in danger I do enjoy suspense and wading through red herrings and there s a huge one here that had me doubting someone s intentions So much connects to the past and there s plenty of opportunity The Far Dawn (The Atlanteans, for the reader to come up with ideas of their own with a grand reveal that shakes Mia s world A huge plus is we get to see of the other guys Lucas works with and I liked that they called him on his mistakes This is a romance so I m allowed to just go with thelow but certain things niggled away at me First the supposed escape Ormen i Essex from imprisonment which ok is just referred to but what really irritated was the lack of Lucas samily In a story
