I found this book to be pretty cute, even if the heroine might have had one or two too stupid to live moments. Granted, once she understood the gravity of the situation, it eased up, but still….
Dominic – devoted to his SEAL brothers, I really liked the various layers that Ms. Weber built into Dominic, from his devotion to protecting one of his team, even if it was his not-so-likably officer, to keeping his eye on the asset (Lara). He definitely was a good, strong man without too many alphahole tendencies, even though there was no doubt about his alphaness.
Lara – now there’s a girl to respect. She knew what she wanted (to be a dancer) and when one avenue was taken away from her, she found another avenue for career (computer technology security).. I liked her brains, once she stopped being (understandably) suspicious of Dominic and how she kept her eye on her prize (finishing her degree) even as she was dodging bad guys.
The romance didn’t feel forced to me, which can be tricky in category-length romances, and the secondary cast didn’t overwhelm the main plot. I really enjoyed Lara and the slow beginning of a relationship with her long-estranged brother.
Glad I read it and happy to give it a four-gargoyle rating.
