Format: Kindle Edition
I do love Shannon McKenna; she's an auto-buy for me. And maybe I was expecting too much here, but for me this book just isn't what the others in the series have been. When I started Behind Closed Doors, I knew right away I'd be pulling an all-nighter with that book. I didn't put that book down until my tired, crossed eyes made me, and most of the other books in this series were also like that for me, in different degrees. With this new book, that didn't happen.

For me, this book was not unputdownable. I actually had to make myself keep reading it, and I never thought that would be the case. This story just didn't grab me and pull me in. The first few chapters seemed to need tightening up and made more concise. It almost read more like rambling. I have a friend who is reading her copy at the same time, and she told me to hang in there and keep going. So I did, and the story did pick up, around p. 254 or so, about halfway through. That's when I felt it was hitting its stride.

I do think this book is maybe too similar to the last book, with the medical science slant of mind control and the mad, narcissistic scientist out to rule the world with his army of brainwashed drones. This zombie master stuff, as Bruno called it, I really felt like had been done before with Kev. Also, this part of the story, the bad guys, seemed too easy; the bad guys always seemed just too on top of things. And for me, King just wasn't scary or sinister or even interesting enough. By the time I got to p. 400, I was very ready for this to wrap up, yet it just kept going on. I feel this book could have been at least 100 pages shorter.

As for Bruno and Lily, I didn't feel a deep connection there.

i love shannon's book, but she needs to give herself a reality check, for anybody not familiar with the series set around the McCloud brothers, they are some of the best romantic suspense novels available, strong alpha heros, with women who can match them, some have suffered unimaginable horrors and have survived, keeping their honour and integrity. But how likely is it that a man who has been torured buy a mad scientist who worked for a secret society (Kevin McCloud) would end up with a foster brother who has a connection to a mad scientist who runs a secret society (Bruno Ranieri). This book is very well written, has a good fast pace and a heroine who is kick a** it ticks all the boxes and is a very good read, especially the part of the book where all the extended family come together, i loved that part. I would have given 5 stars but the villians are too predictable, you can see the big reveal coming halfway into the book, and the plot. The heroine came to Bruno for help, it could have been as simple as that.

As a previous reviewer said, this is another mad-man mind control book, very like the Kevin McCloud book(s)and in my opinion McKenna did it to death in the Kevin novel(s).

I've read everything SM has written and enjoyed them all; I think that one of my favourites was/is Return to Me and as far as I'm concerned, it would be nice if she could get back to that style/type of plot.

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this book, however in plot it was far too like the Kevin plot.

Recommended. Exactly the same formula as all the McCloud books. If you've enjoyed the others you will probably enjoy this but feel as though you have read it before but with characters with different colour hair. If you haven't read a McCloud novel before, try Behind Closed Doors which is the first and best (IMO) of the series. I like SM's writing style but I wish there was more variety in her characters and storylines.
