Sinossi

Catch and Release, a romance/suspense novel, is the story of two lives from vastly different backgrounds, drawn together by fate and a common love of the great outdoors. The crossing of Jennifer and Steve’s paths releases an explosion of love, passion, adventure and ultimately a reason for a shared journey. Within 24 hours, they catch a few trout, have a passionate affair, shoot and kill a man, are involved in two gun battles, receive wounds and end up in Miami, Florida. All this, and as Steve says, they still have six days of vacation left. Their relationship touches long-buried feelings in Jennifer, while shattering the mundane existence suffocating Steve.

3.0 su 5 stelle Dramatic Potential Undermined 2 gennaio 2012
Di Clare Chu - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
This book packed a dramatic plot-line with a punchy heroine but petered out at the end due to an overload of sentimentality. The climax hit at 75% and what happened afterwards was mopping up for the HEA.

I liked the story. It had all the elements of suspense, romance, danger, and plot twists. The heroine is mysterious, opinionated, plucky, yet insecure. But what dragged the story out was the long stretches of philosophizing, repetitive interior monologue, and stilted dialogue. Both characters seemed to talk with the same psychoanalytical voice, yet we know the female character has a lot to hide and would not express herself so openly. There is zero subtext, and everything is explained several times, in dialogue and internal monologue.

I was not bothered by the shift between first person and third person. It made sense because the male main character (1st) is a psychologist and his voice, although overly pedantic, is illuminating and cozy. I was okay with him being overly analytic because that is his profession, to observe, analyze, and suggest. I expected the female character (portrayed in 3rd) to be more distant and to hide things, but she was just as annoyingly transparent. At 93% the author resorted to omniscient point of view to cover his tracks as he tried to explain the wrap-up where neither of the characters were present.

The potential of the book was also undercut by the need for editing. The author mistakes "smiled", "laughed", and other words for dialogue tags. He overuses introductory present participial phrases and misplaces modifiers. Simple and easily fixed grammatical mistakes litter the pages, and there was the annoying "little did I know" foreshadowing as well as many cliches.

I received a complimentary ebook for review purposes.

4.0 su 5 stelle It's going to be a great movie! 23 aprile 2012
Di Edward Weikman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
What a great story; well told and engaging. Once started it keeps you wanting to know what happens next. The lead character is sucked into something that just keeps getting more out of control. But suvival requires his complete comittment to seeing it through to the end - perhaps his end. It's going to be a great movie!!

4.0 su 5 stelle engaging from start to finish 26 gennaio 2012
Di N. Budden - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
If you want to read a book which will keep you guessing and have you wondering about what's really going on, this is sure to catch you but I'm not sure it will release you until long after the last page has been read.
The characters are true to life with a story which could have had a simple happily-ever-after ending without a lot of fanfare. However, if there was anything which could go wrong, it did. A doctor who had previously led a sheltered, boring life became a target after meeting a woman at his favourite fishing grounds - fleeing the scene just after killing a man in self-defence.
From there, the heat is on and it's only thanks to the lady he met that his life was spared on a few occasions. As they team up to catch the criminals, they are in for the ride of their lives and it was truly an engaging read.

4.0 su 5 stelle Worth Reading 15 gennaio 2012
Di Christine A. Gomez - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
The first couple of chapters were a bit confusing and moved slow. Just as I was about to put it down, the action picked up and I'm glad I didn't. You will want to know what happens next and with Jennifer that could be anything. At some point I was beginning to feel sorry for the poor doctor, but it was quite obvious he was becoming very willing participant. This book turned out to be a very good read and I highly recommend it.

3.0 su 5 stelle The Author Caught Me, But Released Me 10 gennaio 2012
Di Mary C. Findley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
I received a copy of this book free from WoMen's Literary Cafe. I enjoy action-adventure, and hope for strong female leads. I am from the Catskill Mountains in New York, where this story begins and ends. I remember catching a pretty little rainbow trout with my dad. I had some memorable campouts. So does psychologist Steve Sanders.
I never encountered a woman who was fleeing mobsters fishing naked. So Steve's story is automatically more interesting. It's kind of hard to imagine that to escape being outed as an undercover FBI agent Jennifer Blade would head off on a fishing trip to the Catskills. Later on the author explains that she had a good early childhood, a lot like mine, involving fishing trips with her dad. Soon, however, her story becomes the same as that of most hard-luck action heroes.
The author succeeds in portraying a love relationship to which two people are truly committed almost from the start of the book. But is "J" really an FBI agent? She involves mild-mannered Steve in shootings, mob activity, arms deals and lots more nakedness, though sex is not described in an explicit way. Good people in this book are people who help you out, even if they shoot people and scream obscenities on the side. Bad people are the same, but you can tell the difference because the bad ones double-cross you or actively try to kill you.
Jennifer Blade has an attitude, and takes things personally. Her character is one-dimensional. One of the things an author has to do is make you care about his characters. I was just annoyed by Jennifer Blade. Doctor Sanders, secondary protagonist, was an okay guy but he kept saying his life didn't have any real meaning, and I had to agree. Bingo Bob (you'll have to read it to find out who he is), on the other hand, is a remarkably well-rounded character.
