2.0 out of 5 stars Bad 30 May 2012
By JM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most of the books in Kat Martin's "Raines" series are a decent read. This one is anything but. The characters are 1-dimensional, the dialogue trite, the plot contrived. The writing in general is awkward, so much so that it's hard to believe this is by the same author. There are some rather astoundingly stupid scenarios as well - for example the main characters cover up an international drug smuggling incident and help the bad guys (really truly nasty characters with no redeeming qualities) get out of the country in order to protect their own business deal. That the author justifies this truly greedy, self-centered, criminal activity as acceptable, even heroic, behavior is unbelievable. The female protagonist suffers from that typical "bad writing" paradox, i.e., the writer tells us she's a strong, intelligent, successful woman, but nearly everything she says and does shows her to be indecisive, insecure, and not especially clever. The male protagonist is hardly human; he's perfect in looks, build, brains, behavior (other than the fact that he's aiding and abetting criminals), and naturally is the best lover in the world, or at least in Texas. That's what we're told anyway, but there's actually very little demonstration. Don't waste your money on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read 5 Jun 2012
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sage Dumont needs to win a contract for used drilling equipment to ensure her promotion. Somebody wants her to fail, and it's bodyguard Jake Cantrell's job to see that nothing goes wrong. But when Jake and Sage stumble upon a plot more deadly than they can imagine, the ante is upped and they must combine forces just to survive.

Jake Cantrell is good at his job. Private investigator and mercenary, the tough ex-special forces marine has been hired as a bodyguard by Sage Dupont's grandfather. Sage, an upcoming VP, wants to earn her promotion to president and feels clinching a deal between the Saudis for purchase of used pipe and platform drilling equipment is her key to success. When Jake arrives at the marine Drilling International offices, they get off on a bad start. Sage doesn't think she needs a bodyguard, but her grandfather feels differently. Furthermore, Cantrell's uncanny intuition for suspecting shady dealing is aroused, and he's going to see that Sage is protected.

Initially, Sage must entertain the Saudi sheik's family and entourage, then negotiate the deal. On the surface things appear to be going well between Sage and the Saudis, but when Jake overhears disturbing news, he fears much more than a transaction for used pipe is in the works. Moreover, he's attracted to Sage and doesn't want to compromise her or his position to protect her.

Tension sizzles in this contemporary story. As usual, Ms. Martin has come up with a plot that offers nonstop suspense mixed with the usual high-octane testosterone so prevalent in her books. Both Jake and Sage are nicely drawn, three-dimensional characters a reader can care about. The fast-paced plot is not only fascinating but provides lots of information about Middle Easterners and their customs. I was fascinated.

Secondary characters were great. I became so interested in the hunky PI's at Trace Rawlins' company. I can't wait to read their stories.

Against the Sun has wonderful characters, great pacing and nonstop suspense. And if you like a sexy hero, then Jake Cantrell will satisfy your every craving.

Against the Sun is part of Kat Martin's fabulously popular Raines of the Wind Canyon series. Strong men with a heart of gold characterize this wonderful series.

Jake Cantrell is a security expert who is feeling a bit bored when he is assigned as a bodyguard to the luscious if strong willed heiress Sage Dumont by her powerful grandfather. But this is strictly job is business and besides, Sage has a fiancée. Sage is impetuous, independent and ambitious. Although Jake knows it is wrong, their mutual attraction flares hotter with every encounter. And when Sage calls her engagement all bets are off! But complications arise when the Middle Eastern sheik that Sage is to conduct a business deal with brings his family to the United States. Ones that involve: drugs, explosion and murderous threats. Can Jake protect Sage and win her love?

This books starts out deceptively simple. But I was surprised at how complex the plot evolved and how much I enjoyed the fiery interplay between Jake and Sage. It was also interesting to see how Sage must adapt to working with a different culture and the ramifications of the often clashing ideals. Sage's character transformed as she starts out self-assured but then must question what she really wants in life, including Jake! I liked how Jake shook things up for Sage and the sexual tension between them really had me hot under the collar! When Sage realized that she was living a `half' life that did not challenge her, I found myself sympathizing with her. The subplots surrounding the sheik and Sage's feisty, red-headed best friend, Rina, made this a fun and compelling book to read. I hope Kate Martin will write a book that stars Rina as her next heroine because she is one spunky character that will give the right man the run for his money!

Immersing, well written suspense with passionate characters that are easy to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Against The Sun 3 Jun 2012
By Heide Katros - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'd lost all joy in reading after I had a tough personal 5 month. I was thrilled when Against The Sun was published. I so love Kat Martin's writing. She is a wonderful storyteller and her research for her plots is superb. Her heroes are real American men and the kick-ass women of today who help to make this country even greater.

By Cynthia A. Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved "Against the Sun", Volume 6 of the Raines of Wind Canyon Series and I'm eagerly awaiting the Release of "Against the Odds", Volume 7, "Against the Edge", Volume 8 and "Against the Mark", Volume 9 which should be the last book in this particular Series as mentioned within Ms. Martin's "AUTHOR'S NOTE" at the end of "AGAINST THE SUN".
