The First MistakeI loved this book it was really good read 395 I liked this butI didn t enjoy the relationship between Cleo and Donovan They have a didn t enjoy the relationship between Cleo and Donovan They have a and they didn t end on the best of terms yet here they are tossed together on an investigation However for a book that is supposed to be a romancesuspense book there is really no romance here Just Two People Scratching An two people scratching an when neededOn the flip side the suspense and mystery of Cleo s investigation was completely attention grabbing I had to eep reading to find out who the antagonists were 2 seperate cases and Marissa the attention seeking actress was uite the surprise Her characters story arc was greatSo as a general story this would be a 4 but because the relationship between Cleo and Donovan was tedious and predictable I m gonna The Alchemy of Culture: Intoxicants in Society knock off a star Here s hoping Marc has a shot with Brown Eyes3 stars Itept my interest I did not wish it would be over But I expected romance which was not thereThe spine labels this book romantic suspense When I finished the book my first thought was This is not romance It s action spy mystery "It reads like a TV show mostly action scenes Private detective Cleo is supplying security "reads like a TV show mostly action scenes Private detective Cleo is supplying security an obnoxious movie star who is appearing at a film festival At the same time Cleo is investigating and hopes to solve a ten year old murder mystery involving the chairman of the film festival Various bad guys or suspicious guys do things and Cleo reacts uickly and smartly and gets the jump on them or survives the attack or protects her client etcThere is no unusual or intriguing character development These are predictable typical generic good guys and bad guysThere is no relationship development Cleo worked with Jack once several years ago and they had sex at that time Now they are working togeth North 1 The first of the exciting Cleo North Trilogy THE FIRST MISTAKE draws readers into an exciting world of political intrigue action adventure and passion with the first page No one writes military romantic suspense as well as this former USAF Colonel and THE FIRST MISTAKE doesn t disappoint For Cleopatra Aphrodite North giving up a life as part of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations seemed to be the only choice she had left After ignoring her sense that something wasn t right with a case involving a murdersuicide of Sergeant Debra Smith and Staff Sergeant Thomas Mitchell Cleo is sure she botched the case and that fact along with her turmoil regardi.

Ng paperwork and rules forced her to trade in her uniform for a life of private investigations and security She hasn t regretted the fact that she left the Air Force but she does regret never solving that one horrific case When Major Jack Donovan suddenly shows up on the scene asking for her help in a seven burner investigation being overseen by her former commander General Barnes Cleo can t say no But it s not for the reasons Jack might think babysitting a cranky Tinseltown actress will provide the perfect smokescreen for Cleo to turn her sights on one Alexander Sloan Colonel USAF Retired THE FIRST turn "HER SIGHTS ON ONE ALEXANDER SLOAN COLONEL USAF RETIRED " sights on one Alexander Sloan Colonel USAF Retired FIRST is military romantic suspense at its absolute best Conspiracies mysteries action adventure and spine tingling passion all come together to make this book a Rough Rider: BWWM Interracial MC Biker Alpha Male Romance keeper I can say with honesty that after reading it I immediately went and picked up THE MIDDLE SIN the next book in the trilogy just to find out where Cleo ends up next Not to mention what becomes of Alexander s twin brother Marc and to find out how Jack is dealing with his alcoholic ex wife Kate Kudos to Ms Lovelace for dragging this reader into the intrigue I became a fan of Lovelace after reading her Call of Duty Though some of her other books were a hit and miss for me I enjoyed her style enough to look out for any new titlesWhen I read that The First Mistake has the romance continuing into the seuels I wasn t too enthusiastic as I m not one for long drawn out relationships Thankfully my liking for the author s work won out as I found my purchase of her latest title was certainly not a mistake at all This trilogy is going to be aeeper for me even though I ve only read the first book and will place an order for The Middle Sin if my bookstores haven t got it in yetOne word of caution if you prefer your romantic suspense heavier on the romance you could be disappointed as The First Mistake is heavier on the action and suspense Also usually the hero establishes himself in my mind as the one for the heroine and every other man is an interloper but not so in this book I found myself drawn to the other man you ll have to find out who for yourself from the start and it was the possibility of this romance developing that got me hooked not the one Cleo hadhas with Jack Donovan the hero or is he of the book My suspicion that there was going to be to the second man was confirmed when I read the preview pages of The Middle Sin Since Jack is the hero I am not expe.
