Professionally, she’s at the top of her game, but her personal life is in ruins. Her lover, bodyguard Sean Meyer, has awoken from a gunshot-induced coma with his memory in tatters. It seems that piecing back together the relationship they shared is proving harder for him than relearning the intricacies of the bodyguard business. Working with Sean again was never going to be easy for Charlie, but a celebrity fundraising event in aid of still-ravaged areas of New Orleans should have been the ideal opportunity for them both to take things nice and slow. Until, that is, they find themselves thrust into the middle of a war zone.
When an ambitious robbery explodes into a deadly hostage situation, the motive may be far more complex than simple greed. Somebody has a major score to settle, and Sean is part of the reason. Only trouble is, he doesn’t remember why. And when Charlie finds herself facing a nightmare from her own past, she realizes she can’t rely on Sean to watch her back. This time, she’s got to fight it out on her own.
What I like: Charlie has grown though each book. She started off almost one dimensional but I've grown to understand her a little better with each installment. She's tough but not stupid and thinks though each situation quickly before doing what needs to be done. I enjoy Ms Sharp's writing style. There are some "Englishisms" not edited out and it adds to my enjoyment. While you might figure out the who-done-it before the ending, it's how she takes you through the steps that make it interesting. I'm a bit fascinated with the world building. I find myself wanting to read and do research on being a bodyguard to see if it really works the way Ms Sharp portrays it.
What I didn't like: Charlie and her main love interest, Sean, have gone through some changes in the last couple of books and it's frustrating not knowing what is going to happen. This can also be listed under "what I liked". I would actually like to know more about some of the other characters, like, Parker Stephenson.
I'm really on pins and needles waiting for the next book and I can't find out any information on when it might come out. <grits teeth> During the first couple of books, I was on the fence about the series but now I guess I would consider myself a Charlie Fox addict.
Die Easy released in hardcover at $10.38 and Kindle at $9.99. Normally, I wouldn't want to pay that much but I'm hooked on this series. If you don't want to spend the money, please check it out at the library. It's worth it.
Enjoyable, entertaining series!
