S you are embarrassed you are watching view spoilerLike what is a better place to start a serious and long conversation about feelings and the future of their relationship than the dilapidated shed in the middle of nowhere that looks like straight out of a orror movie as described in a book And of course neither Lucas nor Mia can multi Alexandra Ivy writes romantic suspense like Christina Dodd in my opinion Lots of red Whiff, or How the Beautiful Big Fat Smelly Baby Found a Friend herrings lots of suspects lots of danger It all makes for a very compelling story I didn t love this one as much as Kill with Mercy but its still an enjoyable read I ve given this a C at AAR so 25 starsKill Without Shame is the second book in Alexandra Ivy s ARES Security series and while mention is made of a plot thread concerning one of the team whoas been receiving threats which I assume was begun in the previous book that plotline is not really advanced The Greatest You here so this one can be read as a standalone That said I can t really recommend it as the whole thing is incredibly unexciting the romance is seriously underdeveloped and not at all believable given the context and the suspense is pretty much non existent the fact that it took me over four days to read showsow easy it was to put the book asideARES Security is a The Elite Way high techigh end firm set up by five men brothers in arms who bonded when they were Crumbs held prisoner by the Taliban during a tour in Afghanistan Theero of Kill Without Shame is Lucas St Clair the son of a senator who is estranged from is wealthy but coldly aloof parents but whose name still opens doors He is not above using that name and family connections when needed but mostly e wants to leave Spurgeons Expository Encyclopedia his old life behindim and concentrate on the new one Sealed he is building That becomes difficultowever when Sketching From Square One to Trafalgar Square he is informed that an old acuaintance fromis school and college days Tony Hughes The Familiars has been shot and killed in the street and thate was clutching a picture of Mia Ramon an old flame of Lucas when Imepuu he died Worse the picturead the words Kill Owens Walk her or else scrawled across it Lucas didn t know Tony well they were from completely opposite backgrounds but Mia is important toim even though they Shadow Point (The Gothic War, haven t seen each other for fifteen yearse still carries a torch for Taboo Times Ten her and can t bear the thought ofer being in dangerMia is a successful businesswoman in Death Note One-Shot Special (Death Note, Chapter herometown of Shreveport running a landscaping and garden design business that she The Empty Tomb has built up fromer father s much smaller operation The last person she wants or expects to see in Dont Step on the Crack! her office is Lucas St Clair and their reunion is frosty Lucas walked out oner with no explanation fifteen years earlier and she Gay Travel Guide For Tops And Bottoms hasn t seenim since The Irish Scissor Sisters he brokeer How to Think Like an Entrepreneur heart and she is not about to puterself through it again She can t deny that Mortelle Adle, Tome 15: Funky Moumoute he s become a devastatingly attractive man or that she still feels the same pull towardsim as before but she is determined to keep The Events at Poroth Farm him at arm s length no matter what Mia looked on Tony as a friend and used to employim from time to time so she s naturally upset to The Hare Hypothesis hear ofis death but she as no idea of time so she s naturally upset to ear of Atentado his death but sheas no idea of anyone would want im dead and even less as to why she would be a target erselfLucas naturally wants to investigate Tony s murder and the threat against Mia and keep Open for Business (Rough play with anonymous men in a porn shop viewing room) (Rough play with anonymous men in a porn shop viewing room) (The Sex Shop Book 1) her safe It s not long before their enforced proximity is rekindling the old feelings between them or long before they re giving in to them but even then Mia is determined to keep things on a casual footing as a means of self protectionThe stakes are raisedowever when an attempt is made on Mia s life With elp from is team Lucas gradually uncovers a series of misdeeds that dates back decades implicating people Mia cares about in a morass of embezzlement blackmail and murder Lucas and Mia Les Lgendaires - Les Chroniques de Darkhell 01. Tnbris have to work together to uncover the truth even as the killer is closing in on themFrom that description you d be forgiven for thinking this is a fast moving thriller with a sexy romance on the side but it s nothing of the sort The pacing is pedestrian and the romance is perfunctory and frankly unbelievable Lucas and Miaaven t seen each other in FIFTEEN YEARS and they re opping into bed together the day after their reunion They split up when Lucas was eighteen I m assuming Mia was around the same age and there is a massive difference between what someone is like at eighteen and what they re like in their early thirties They are or should be very different people now yet there s no sense of them getting to know each other again In fact there s no romantic development at all although I do give the author credit for aving Lucas be open about The scent his feelings for Mia and prepared to putimself out there even when it s clear to دوره حقوق مدنی-عقود معین 1 him that she is still not sure aboutim There is a cute secondary romance in the story between Mia s assistant Taylor and the local detective assigned to the case which is actually interesting than the non romance between Lucas and MiaThe mystery plot is reasonably well put together but there s only one possible villain which takes away any element of suspense pretty early on and the storyline is fairly predictable The characterisation overall is paper thin and I never connected with either of the principals and not only is the main romantic relationship a disappointment there is no real sense of the emotional bond we re told exists between Lucas and the other ARES team membersAll in all Kill "Without Shame Which Makes Absolutely No Sense As A Title "Shame which makes absolutely no sense as a title a lacklustre book that proved a big disappointment I m not invested enough in any of the characters to want to pick up another book in the series and uite 정숙한 남자 [A Man of Virtue] honestly not suitably impressed with any facet of this one writing plotting or characterisation to be inclined to read this author agai.
