Quinn, Part II

by J.C. Cliff

I read this a long time ago and held on to the review because not only hadn’t read the first book in the series but there was too much negativity being batted around online for the book to get a fair crack but having stumble on the review in a lonely folder on my machine I thought it only right that I put my review up, after all despite my misjudgement of not having read book one, I loved this read. Quinn was truly something else.

The events that Quinn and Lexi had to go through didn’t just result in a gentle tug at my heartstrings, nope they were swinging from the ends and I could almost feel myself break. I was a little lost as to how I should reconcile the lunacy of what they were experiencing, I mean there are degrees of bats**t and this was totally off the scale.

I loved that there was a proper villain to the story, you know what I mean…a character that it really is ok to totally hate, the one that you want to take a bat too!! Yep this had one of those…Vince, reprehensible doesn’t even scratch the surface of how bad he is. I loved the mafia twist that the story has, it only enhances the fact that this military man has his work cut out keeping not only himself but Lexi safe.

The story ran smoothly (enough) it might have need a tweak here and there but that is me splitting hairs really because I found both the flow and the banter worked for me, it encouraged me to read on, I didn’t want to put the book down and the characters mattered. I felt their pain as they face obstacle after obstacle and I have to say that by the time I was half way through the book, I wasn’t entirely sure if either they or I would make it to the end, I felt gutted, I could slowly feel the enormity of their situation growing and I wasn’t sure how they were going to get through it all but this is a very clever author because the twist that she produced blew me away.

Could Quinn and Lexi survive, and more to the point would they survive together?

One word of warning though – you will need tissues.
