As the danger escalates, Hannah and Harrison grow closer, the desire simmering between them ignites. And when Hannah disappears, Harrison has only one chance to save the woman he loves.
I love a good suspense novel. Serial killers and secret government agencies being targeted by serial killers?? Like double extra awesome. So I was REALLY excited to read Deadly Dance. Then I got into it.
Aside from the actual killings and the mystery about the killings, the characters are… kinda boring. Hannah is annoying. She is supposed to be this amazing like uber girl but she just whines, and is concerned about her friends, and well she is also concerned about her friends, but she just has this character that just whines and drags on and gets overly dramatic and overly emotional when it comes to her feelings and her history, and her past, i just hated how she thought as a character and because of the fact that I hated her voice, it colored what I thought about her for the rest of the novel.
I thought that Harrison was flat. Aside from his timeline linear history as a FBI agent and his past with his sister, I felt like I didn’t really get to know him as a character or as a person. It was a problem because I really felt like he could have been way stronger and way more interesting with a more detailed personality and with more panache.
I LOVED the mysery surrounding the murders. It was so beautifully and spookily done. it was crazy balls. I mean it was just insane. I both loved and hated the fact that I loved it so much. It was such a great mystery and such a fantastic spooky crazy killer, its just amazeballs.
Overall, I loved the story, but hated the characters and the romance.
Overall Rating: B-
