This book has me all over the place now that it's time for a review. I just feel that something was lacking. I mean the chemistry between the H and h just didn't do it for me. I don't care that there wasn't much spice to it, it just didn't click for me. I did enjoy the mystery and the twist which were placed very well and kept the book interesting. I have to say the writing was good and it did keep me turning the pages with all of the action I just was left lacking. This is my first read by this author and it really was good enough for me to try another read in hopes of connecting with her characters. I love suspense with some romance which is why I am surprised this didn't work for me. However since I am in the minority I will safely say it must be me.
Desperate Girls is a bit of a mixed bag. We have some courtroom drama, a bit of action and suspense by way of an escaped murderer set on getting revenge, some hot and steamy romance, and a little more suspense with an interesting twist. This is my first read by Laura Griffin, and I have to say I was impressed. The story moves at a good pace, there are no big lags, and the flow is good. Brynn is a strong female lead, which I always enjoy, and Erik is the very definition of a protector. They have great chemistry and just fit so well together that you can't help but want to see them together. The big bad in this one is about as bad as they get, and the tension builds as he tries to get to Brynn. I would've liked to have seen a bit more from Corby given his intelligence level, but it was still an entertaining read. We do get an intriguing twist at the end - one that I didn't see coming until it was right there. All in all, I enjoyed the book and will certainly be watching for whatever comes next in this new series.
Enjoyable read. The story has a few bland spots but picks up and recovers. There are some plot twists, intrigue, a little mystery, the saving grace of this story. The romance is kind of redundant, has been done many times before, not a bad thing, just same ol’, same ol’. One of my questions is where did the title come from? Sure murder of girls/women, however this is a book about one woman. All in all a decent read.
