2.0 out of 5 stars Gutted that this is a 2 star for me but it reflects my disappointment, 5 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Kaleidoscope (Colorado Mountain Series Book 6) (Kindle Edition)
I have for a while considered this series to be a formula which started out brilliantly but doesn't have enough plot changes and character changes between books to keep the reader's interest.

The female lead is basically the same through all books - apparent in the dialogue
The male lead is basically the same through all books - apparent in the dialogue
The house and situation is basically the same in all books - see kitchen, bathroom, decking, back yard..........
The plot is basically the same in all books - lead female gets kidnapped/threatened and man has to save

This formula has been ok because KA's writing is so good that it's like a warm blanket, it's comforting, you know what you're going to get however in this book she gave us the usual sassy, smart leading lady Emmie and then in the second half STRIPPED her of all her independence, basic decision making and sass.

What was unforgivable was that she did this through making the leading lady a sufferer of PTSD and tried to blame lots of Emmie's decisions on this............for instance, seeing her love interest in an embrace at an arranged meeting with his ex when he specifically told her he was doing something else, she is rightly very pissed but HE gets mad and tells her that she's unreasonable because of her 'mental illness' and she should be friends with his ex and understand he was doing it for her own good!!!!!!! WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW I NEARLY THREW MY KINDLE AT THIS POINT!

So, the whole second half of the book is about Emmie realising that she is to blame basically for EVERYTHING because of her problems but luckily Deck is going to bring her out of it, show her the way, be her knight in shining armour and stick with her until she sees the light...........................

Seriously, I cannot express how disappointed I was in this book - I have ALL her others and although 'samey' at least she doesn't de-power her leading lady.

Sad :(
