“On the verge of selling his property company, David Harlem is about to discover that someone wants him dead. The Antagonist, aware that the sale will reveal that he stole millions from Harlem Properties, will stop at nothing to hinder the sale, even if it means killing David. Kerin meets David at a difficult time in her life, but decides to allow him in, unaware that it would put her life in danger.” – Goodreads
They say opposites attract and in this book that is very much the case. David is a rich and successful man that is about to sell his company for millions. He is tired of his life and is ready to start a new chapter, especially after he experienced some devastating heartache. Kerin is a down on her luck waitress, with two kids and a frail mother. She barely makes ends meet and can’t really remember when last she thought of herself and not those she supports. This all changes when David and Kerin meet in a ‘Pretty Woman’ sort of way.
Kerin and David are not the only characters though, there is the mysterious ‘antagonist’ that is plotting against David. You don’t know who he/she is, but you get to read from their point of view, seeing the behind the scenes workings of this plot against David. Then there are a whole host of people that work for David that also gets introduced and you can’t help but be suspicious of every single one of them!
There was one thing that nagged at the back of my mind. Kerin gets fired from not one, but two jobs. I found it very frustrating because she didn’t seem to fight back, but also it is very difficult to just fire employees these days, so I found it frustrating that it was happening so easily to her. Something I was pleasantly surprised with was that the ‘antagonist’ discusses at some point the process of buying land and building on it – and actually mentions an archaeological impact assessment. I was very impressed with this. Not a lot of people realize that this needs to be done! I think the author did a lot of research as he touched on a lot of topics. I commend him on this!
The last third of the book was very action packed and thrilling! I loved following all the characters while this was taking place. A page turning read!
It left me satisfied and with a strange urge to travel to George!
This got a 7/10 from me.
