Second book in Novak s The Last Stand series I m giving it the same rating as the first book, 4 stars, but I liked itthan the first one While the first one was borderline 3 4 stars, this one solid 4 stars.Like the first book, this one focuses on The Last Stand victims support organization and the three women who founded it This book features Jasmine Stratford Sixteen years earlier, her little sister was kidnapped while Jasmine babysat her, completely destroying her family The sister was never found and Jasmine has never stopped feeling guilty or wanting to know what became of her sister.Now, she s received a strange package in the mail from someone who had to be involved in the disappearance of her sister Desperate to know , she goes to New Orleans, where the package was mailed from Her research leads her to Romain Fornier, a brooding loner who has shut himself away from the world after his 10 year old daughter was kidnapped, molested, then murdered When the killer was let off on a technicality, Romain reacted on a surge of emotion and spent the next 18 months in jail He wants nothing to do with what Jasmine is telling him that he may have killed the wrong man But the knowledge that the person who killed his little girl might still be out there overrules his feelings He and Jasmine team up to find out the truth in a case that takesturns than anyone could have expected Stop Me is a little bit different type of story than Trust Me because this one is a whodunit because you don t know who the ultimate ringleader is Though I have to admit I had a pretty good idea who it would turn out to be early on The misdirection was a little too obvious so I looked to the less possible option And I was right But it was still a well told story I wanted to keep reading to see where the story would go next And there was a surprise or two as well I wasn t expecting how things ended up with one of the secondary characters.The romance in this one was a bitsolid than the first book I loved Romain He s the ultimate in tragic heroes a wife who died of cancer, a daughter brutally murdered, going to prison for taking justice into his own hands Even though he s a bit surly, he s a very likable character The chemistry between him and Jasmine is great and the romance isdeveloped than between Skye and David from Trust Me I just felt the romantic angleBut like Trust Me the ending was a bit weak Not as much so, but I still didn t come away feeling all that satisfied For me, there just needed to be a scene that solidified the romance between Jasmine and Romain And I was left wanting to know a few things after the book ended There were some things I wanted to know how they turned out.I was also a bit disappointed that the book felt rather disconnected from the first book The Last Stand organization gets a lot of mentions and whatnot, and the other characters get a little face time, but I felt as if they were just there Skye book 1 had a baby and it s never even said whether it was a boy or a girl So I would have liked a littleinter connectedness between the books.But overall, I liked the book I zipped through it pretty quickly This book, and the series, is something those who like the mid level intensity romantic suspenses would probably like. Well, it was entertaining.I liked the story, but there were inconsistencies A character would say something and then the next moment say it think something totally different I m not talking about would be liars.Here is an example Jasmine decides to drive somewhere She realizes she only has enough gas for a one way trip there And because her purse was stolen, she doesn t have money to get gas to go back When she arrives at her destination and the person isn t there, her thought is I guess I can drive back to the city Really She just said she didn t have enough gas or money to make it back And this happens enough in the story to draw me out of it.Then there is Jasmine out on her own trying to put a name to a face When she gets that name, she doesn t immediately contact the person whose helping her because duh, plot device If she did which would be the believable reaction, the trouble she finds herself in wouldn t happen It s a cheap plot device that shows the author is incapable of coming up with aplausible way to get the character in the trouble she needed her to be in.And the HEA I didn t understand her move He didn t work and she had a job Why did she move move and quit her job How will they survive It just seemed weird to me.Also side note, in book one, what s her name was pregnant Why would we find out if it was a girl or boy Why did Jasmine hide from her supposed besties her trouble But despite it all, it s actuallyinteresting than the Lisa Jackson books I ve read lately These aren t carbon copies of themselves so far at least So I ll soldier on especially since they are available with the romance package.The same editing existed as the last The end of a chapter would overlap with the new chapter and I was never sure if something was cut out.The narrator was the same as last and her voices in this story didn t bother me like last. 3 stars If you re in the mood for romantic suspense, this is pretty good, a little better than average.There were a couple of weak places, but acceptable I think it s fine to have a trusted person turn out to be bad, but here it happensthan once which bothered me a little Probably because I recently read another book by this author that had many cops, mayor, and others supposedly good but in truth were bad guys She used the surprise of many bad guys as a way to create mystery and suspense instead of traditional methods Every so often she would surprise us by showing another character to be one of the bad guys I felt the author was overdoing it in that book, so when something similar happened here I was reminded of that and it wasn t as appealing as it could have been.Jasmine and Romain are sexually drawn to each other After they have sex, he insults her His reason is that he is trying to live life as a hermit and doesn t want to feel things So she now has a wall between them This causes conflict between them for a long time I like conflict between a couple, but this wasn t the best The sex meant a lot to him, but he lied calling it a meaningless f to distance himself.There was one instance of stupidity Heroine goes to killer s location without notifying Romain where she is going.Jasmine is psychic, so that gives her leads It was done well enough, but psychic stories might not appeal to some.Overall I didn t find it special or different, but it was good enough to keep my interest.DATA Narrative mode 3rd person Story length 432 pages Swearing language strong but not often used Sexual language moderate Number of sex scenes 3 Setting mostly current day New Orleans area, Louisiana Copyright 2008 Genre paranormal romantic suspense.
