This is such a great book! I love it! Please read! There is a book before this one, but you don't have to read it to follow along... but I've read both books and love them both.

update 10/7/13... this book just gets better and better. I listened as an audiobook this time and it was awesome. 5 stars for the book and 5 stars for the narration. ( )

I do love romances, but this one just missed the mark. Where the story lost points includes the following:

1. It starts out with the hero believing the heroine is a teenage boy called "the kid". He complains of his bad body odor and his bluntness, but yet finds himself oddly attracted to her/him.

2. It turns out the kid is really a girl around 18 years old who became a bounty hunter to prove a point to her father about being able to take on mans work. When proving how "grown up" you are to your parents, running away and taking part in a profession which could get you killed doesn't strike me as the best way to demonstrate maturity.

3. The hero, Damien, is a bit flat. There's not much about him that I found appealing.

4. Damien has so much wealth he buys train cars to ride in. Really? He's spending money like he's the kid who created Facebook. It's just a bit too unrealistic.

5. Despite a book full of gunfights, the hero and heroine do not take a single bullet (one gets grazed, but that's about it). They manage to get out of more sticky situations than McGyver and take down many many trained killers.

6. The romance is just weak. It's unclear what they saw in each other and Casey kept running away from him. For a brave heroine, she lacks all bravery when it comes to this. Damien is equally guilty. Their feelings are only expressed at the very end, and then in a rushed way.

7. The side characters fell short. All of them.

8. How did they keep finding the person they were hunting down? I have no idea. It was a bit too "lucky" to be realistic.

It's a readable book, but I wouldn't recommend this one. ( )

Typical Lindsey historical. Girl dresses like a boy romance. Quick read. ( )

This is the second of JL's westerns. I enjoy them, but not as much as the historical. ( )
