The Setting: Chicago
The Hero(s): Oren – raised by a junkie mother, he ends up in Juvie in his teens. When he gets out his father dies. His father worked for a Senator in Chicago and the Senator pays for his flight and the funeral. Oren saves his daughter that night and falls in love at first sight.
The heroine: Kenzie – drugged an nearly assaulted in her father’s home while throwing a party, she was saved by an unknown protector. She has dreamed of him and romanticized him ever since.
The Love Story:Kenzie doesn’t know it but she has a stalker and it is the guy that protected her six years ago. He has killed for her and gotten rid of every potential boyfriend she has ever had because she is his.
I generally like stalker stories, though in real life I hate stalkers and men who are overly possessive. For some reason in romance novels, jealous, possessive men are sexy (to me), stalkers aren’t as creepy as in real life and a guy who kidnaps a woman isn’t necessarily bad. Well he is bad, but not evil. Anyway, I liked the beginning of this book when Oren is stalkerific, but after Kenzie finally meets him, the story goes downhill a bit.
Like I said above, what I like in romance novels is not always copacetic in real life. However, I don’t always like when people’s reactions to these things don’t have anything normal about them. Of course most girls won’t fall for their stalker or kidnapper, but to fall for them and say “I love you” within 24 hours of meeting them and learning that they have been stalking you for years and are obsessed with you? That defies all credulity. So I just wish this one was longer.
