Dead Running was a face paced story. The action started right away and kept on going.
I really liked the characters especially Cassidy. She is just so real! She's funny, brutally honest, and very caring when it comes to those she cares for. The names she gives people are too funny! I have to admit that I didn't have to go back once to see who she was talking about. The nicknames make it really easy to remember the less important characters.
There are two hunky guys that seek her affections but who can she trust?
The plot had action, sass, mystery, exercise, romance, humor, hot guys, and a feisty Nana.
I really enjoyed this book and seeing as it is a squeaky clean romance it is age appropriate for anyone. This story was an exhilarating thrill ride.
Dying To Run is the sequel and it has all of the same elements but not as much exercising. This second book is not as long but is a page turner!
I was pretty happy with the ending but I can't help but wonder if a book three is in the works.
If you are looking for a clean romance packed with a lot of action, this is a perfect book with you. :D
I received copies of both books in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly liked both books. They were good.
In the book Cassidy refers to Jesse as Dr. Tattoo. What do you think of tattoos? Turn on or off?
