REVIEW - With Good Behavior (Conduct #1) by Jennifer Lane
Release Date: 13 July 2010 (Re-released 14 August 2017)
Re-Release in 2017! We have re-edited With Good Behavior(Conduct #1), book one of a complete romantic suspense trilogy.
In the midst of organized crime and dim hopes of redemption, can love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a naval officer who sacrificed himself to protect his uncle, finding that love seems unlikely.
As they start their lives over in Chicago, both fight family influences and run as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside their parole officer’s door, attraction sparks. Too bad a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both.
My Review 2.5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
On the surface this has everything that i would want in a book. Blackmail, love, mafia, dysfunctional families, friendship, loyalty, murder and betrayal. However for some reason this book took forever for me to read and it just fell flat for me.
Sophie Taylor the ex psychologist seems fairly week and very susceptible to outside influence, whilst Grant who has grown up with a mafia family is in some ways weaker than i expected.
The book was told in 3rd person narrative from multiple point of views. While I’m fine with type this of narration, the transition from one character’s point of view to another in this book wasn’t always clear and changed so often without warning. I found myself re-reading sections to find out when the shift occurred and whose point of view I was reading.
Not an author i will be revisiting.
