4.0 out of 5 stars Hot, raw and exciting, 15 April 2005
This review is from: Out of Control (Paperback)
If you've read Shannon's other books, then you will be aware of Davy McCloud. He's the big, oozes xxx appeal, zen, martial arts expert McCloud brother. Margot is a woman on the run, scared witless by a pair of psycho brothers. She takes on a false identity and gets a job teaching gym classes next door to our resident hunk.
Needless to say, the sparks fly, suspicions about her true identity roughens the waters, and it's not long before both their lives are in danger. Sean, the youngest playboy brother and their old friend Seth (from Behind Closed Doors) play significant roles in the story, with only a cameo really from Connor (from Standing in the Shadows) as he is busy getting married. We're also re-introduced to Nick, Connor's friend who let him down, and enough of a seed has been sewn that I expect we'll see a book about him soon.
Back to our story, lives are at risk, the heat between our two leads rises and they explode into some scorching adult scenes. Shannon's adult scenes are very raw and these are no exceptions. In her previous books, her heroes were all about their ladies' pleasure, and Davy is no exception, except that he did not seem as mesmerised. Davy pushes Margot to her raw, vulnerable self but is afraid to let his guard down. As the oldest brother who found himself as a single parent to three boys, he's had to always be in control. So, we have the trust issue and some resentment from Margot. This leads to Margot fleeing from Davy, endangering both their lives.
They manage to work through their issues and the whole plot comes to a bullet-flying, action-packed, drama-filled resolution that is a little too overdone to be realistic.
I enjoyed this book very much, but I only gave it 4 stars as it lacked some of the intensity of her previous books and the plot was a little too out-there to be plausible. Still, I have every intention of re-reading it and holding on to it.
