Review By John Paul Ried

The characters are engaging so far and the double jeopardy was exciting. Ryan’s temptation is being cooped up hiding with a very attractive lady while someone is trying to kill them. Chanel’s reactions are realistic and does provide the ‘empowered’ woman sense as she was brave enough to interrupt Gretchen’s murder .
Good slamming on comic book conventions. Hotels and motels booked etc. Yes – I see Ryan’s temptation wanting Chanel though they have a series of exciting adventures being shot at and chased. Seems natural that two attractive people would want each other being thrown together as they have been. Witness Protection proves ineffective revealing a mole perhaps on Dipper’s payroll.
Nice romantic getaway. Sex scenes are vivid and fun. Officer Eaton is obviously now the mole and “Paul” is his brother. Dipper said earlier that “my brother would fix everything.” Nine ended with her believing she would die so I felt I should read on to see how Ryan or Detective Mackeroy will save her. Cliffhangers like this in the book encourage readers to continue on.
Big final play by Paul Foley Dipper!. Even the mafia disowned him. While it might be more realistic if Foley would have shot Chanel as soon as he scared everyone out of the Salon and then fled, this was a pulse pounding finish. Ryan coincidently driving by and seeing the panicked Salon customers was very clever and Ryan’s kindness is highlighted by only shooting at the mirror. Glad for the happy ending for once. So many books end in tragedies when one lover is killed or dies etc. Epilogue well crafted. Nice touch with new dog Angel.
Reviewer’s note. This story is very well written with impeccable grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Characters are engaging and realistic. Nice twist with corrupt policeman being assigned to guard Chanel near the end turning out to be the half-brother of Dipper. This book is reasonably fun and erotic, Sex scenes very fun.
