During the time it takes to hike back to civilization, Kit and Mick become friends and explore their growing attraction. While the way out is hampered by bad memories and an assassin, they manage to grow close enough to attempt a real relationship.
However, that bliss is short-lived when Mick’s job again threatens Kit’s life and destroys their happiness. Can a second chance bring them back together?
I’ll be honest. I’m not a huge romantic suspense fan. There, I’ve said it. Let the hate mail start pouring in. I just usually find it so needlessly overwrought. Then there’s the fact that while running for their lives or in the middle of any number of improbable situations, heroes and heroines in romantic suspense decide to have sex. Sure, that’s just what I’d do if a serial killer/covert government agency/mafia hitman was after me. But for all my scorn of the category as a whole, I found myself actually enjoying Broken Bits.
Kit was a fascinating heroine. She was smart and capable, and despite a series of lousy life events, she maintains a solid, upbeat attitude. Mick was also an interesting dude, kind of a smart-and-nerdy-but-hot secret agent type. They worked well together as a couple, and I didn’t find it terribly farfetched that these two would develop a relationship.
The writing mechanics were also fairly solid. Pacing was good, typos were at a minimum. (I think I only found 1 or 2 errors, and since no one is perfect, that kind of accuracy leads me to believe the book was professionally edited, which is a huge plus in my book.)
But that’s not to say it was a perfect read. A few things irked me:
All that being said, this is still a solid series starter that’s worth a read for fans of the genre.
Full disclosure: the author generously offered a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, but I didn’t take it. I downloaded via Kindle Unlimited.
