, and a vending machine, she will make do. It isn’t just Jenna’s curves that make her self conscious. Beneath her clothes she hides a secret, one that she is running from.
My Thoughts : First of all I’d like to say thanks to Tracy from TBConFB for sending me a copy of this book for review.
This is the first book I’ve read by Marissa Farrar and I don’t think I’ve ever read a Romantic Thriller before.
Jenna has had a tough year after a terrible car accident which has left her scarred and scared and un-able to stay in the same place for any amount of time until her car breaks down and there’s nothing else for it but to stay in the small town of Arlington until it is fixed.
I liked the fact that this book had romance which makes you feel quite gooey and the thriller side keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Jenna is a character a lot of women will be able to connect with straight away. She’s an average overweight, self conscious lady who likes her food. She’s very hard on herself but this was a refreshing change from the usual heroines in books who are stick thin and beautiful usually.
There’s not a great deal of characters to get to know through the book which was nice. It gives you the chance to get know each one well and they are believable characters too.
I liked the chemistry between Jenna and Ryker, the hunky tattooed and pierced mechanic. I was sitting reading and willing things to happen but Jenna can’t understand why a guy like Ryker would like her and I just wanted to reach in, grab Jenna and give her a good shake.
The thriller side of the book keeps you guessing and Garrett, Jenna’s horrible ex is a nasty man who made me shiver but a perfect villain.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it’s a feel good book with drama and thriller thrown in.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes romantic thrillers with believable characters and a hunky mechanic but if like me you’ve never read a romantic thriller before I say give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed.
I’m giving this 4 out of 5 stars
