Jaymie at Fallen Angel Reviews has given me five angels (out of five)! It'll be up on their website tomorrow night.
Here's what she said...
My favourite line is the last one. Wheeeeee!
Julie Marchant is a woman who doesn’t play, her life is her job. She doesn’t take time for the little things in life, for her it’s all about getting ahead. Julie’s not unhappy; at least she doesn’t feel that she is; she’s just very determined. She thinks that as a woman in a man’s world, she has to be better, faster, and smarter, or they’ll eat her alive. Julie purchases gems from all over the world and because of that, the rich and famous seek her out for her opinion and expertise. It’s at a party thrown by one of these rich and famous people that she meets Mitchell Cartwright. After a night of all-consuming passion, Julie doesn’t hear from Mitch again and her life is never the same.
Mitch’s motto in life is “No Regrets”. So when he runs into Julie again, in a country far from their home, he’s not about to let her get away. He has a bit of guilt for walking out on her without a word, but he’s not going to dwell on that. Instead he intends to remind Julie of how good it was between them. With Laos falling into civil war, Julie and Mitch are trapped and must find a way home. What Mitch does know is that Julie is harboring a secret. Because of their past, she doesn’t trust him with the trouble she’s in. What will happen to their budding relationship if Mitch learns she’s deceived him is anyone’s guess.
Running Scared is an action-packed, thrill ride. From their whirlwind one-night stand to fleeing a country in civil war, Caitlyn Nicholas keeps readers guessing and clamoring for more. Julie is sophisticated, but very lonely. She’s dedicated and loyal, yet she doesn’t trust easily. Mitch is happy with his globe-trotting, bachelor life. He answers to no one and he prefers it that way. Both Mitch and Julie are set in their ways, so reading their power struggle is entertaining and sizzling. I really enjoyed reading Running Scared. The characters are great and the plot is exciting, I didn’t want to put it down. Ms. Nicholas has a way with words. Set in several different countries, the descriptions of customs, the scenery and the people just seem so real. Running Scared is a remarkable book and should not be missed.
What am I doing to celebrate - presently enjoying a tea cappuccino (because the tea vending machine hates me), and later taking a whirl around Woolies in search of nappies, eggs and mayonnaise.
Its a glamorous life.
