This review is from: Hide and Seek (Mass Market Paperback)
This comtempory romantic thriller opens with our heroine Delanie Eastmann meeting long lost lover undercover agent Kyle Wright while sunbathing topless in the luxury mountain retreat of a renouned drug tycoon. Neither our sexy undercover CIA or the fiercly independent Eastmann come clean about their reasons or motives for being there but realise that their mutual attraction is not only too stronge to be denied but could put their respective missions in jeopardy. The plot gets silly, the mexican accents heavy and the steamy jungle setting no match for the sizzling sex every hundred pages or so. In a pool with a giant snake, in the back of a helicopter with bullets flying, up against a tree while being pursued by a pychopathic slave trader, anything goes with Ms Adair not sparing the blushes.
Three stars instead of 4 because improbable becomes downright unbelievable as the plot progresses, because dispite the fact that we do learn a fair amount about the hero's background and motives, he remains too 'cardboard cut out hero-by-numbers' for my liking and because Delanie is funny but irritating ("I hate him, I think I'll shoot him now.." when you KNOW she doesn't and won't).
Nevertheless, this is a very entertaining read with Ms Adair keeping her tongue firmly in her cheek with this fast paced, hot comedy thriller. Funny, silly, sexy.
