With her wildly popular "SG-5" series, Alison Kent proved that taut suspense and hot, sensual romance make for an irresistible mix. Now, in" Larger Than Life", Kent ups the ante again with a story of two people caught in a high-stakes game where their hearts and lives are on the line...After being beaten and left for dead in the New Mexico desert, Smithson Group agent Mick Savin tries to piece together his last few days. He remembers bits and pieces: gathering crucial intel. An ambush by Spectra thugs. And then...nothing, except waking up in some medical centre in rural west Texas. His mission was top secret. So how did he end up here? The answer is Neva Case. If the former big-city attorney hadn't been out in her pick-up, Mick wouldn't be alive. Mick's never met anyone quite like Neva. She's smart, sexy, and passionate. She also has a secret. Neva runs the Big Brown Barn, an underground shelter for young girls forced into unwanted polygamist marriages. Neva would do anything for these girls - and that's what worries Mick. Neva may be trusting, but Mick's instincts tell him that something's not quite right. He's not about to let someone get to Neva and the girls on his watch.

Mick Savin is working for the Smithson Group investigating a suspect criminal organization when he was captured, seriously wounded, and left out to die in the New Mexico desert. He woke up in a medical center in rural West Texas with a lot of questions, including who was the woman that saved him, and what was she hiding... Neva Case was simply at the right place and the right time to save Mick, but she has her own secrets at stake... saving girls who wanted to leave a fundamentalist compound near her little town. When that secret was threatened, Mick may be her only hope...
The book suffers from too many B-plots... There are FOUR couples in this book plus a couple extras. You have the MMC and FMC Mick and Neva (short for Nevada), Neva's suitor in town, Spencer (son of sheriff) and Candy in town working through their own issues, Sheriff and his wife trying to enforce the law AND do the right thing. The escaped girl has her own boyfriend AND a creepy lawyer as a suitor... Too many characters! The town itself was left with almost no personality. I can't tell how many buildings are there in town. The ending was just really lame and relied on a simple change of heart.
