LETHAL IN LOVE: EPISODE 2 is the continuation of Episode 1. It is better to read Episode 1 before reading Episode 2, as events continue from the previous book and things that happened in Episode 1 are not explained here. It is assumed that readers have read Episode 1.
In this installment, there are new developments on the Thomasz home front, as regards to Jayda’s father. Seth also made a startling discovery, one that is concurred with by Jayda’s father, a retired detective, and one which Jayda didn’t want to believe.
The case is moving forward! That’s the only thing going right in this installment. For the most part, I’m irritated with Jayda. Well, I didn’t warm up to her in the first either, and her behavior just got worse here. I think she has issues, which the author isn’t telling yet, so we don’t know the source of her angst and that makes it hard to sympathize with her, especially in light of the horrible situation she was put in. She’s prickly, blows hot and cold, contradictory, unreasonable, everything that would make you be vexed with a person, if ever you met her in real life.
I feel sorry for Seth, and I wonder why he’s still interested in her. Well, aside from the chemistry sizzling between them, of course. The only thing that gets me still going on this story is to know the identity of the villain. I really can’t decide who it could be! The installment ended on a jarring note, because I didn’t know what that piece of cloth was. I mean, I guessed, but I’d already forgotten to whom that cloth belonged. So, the impact on me wasn’t as great as the author probably intended.
That said, I’m still interested to forge onward and dive into the next installment!
Rating: 4 stars
Lethal in Love is a steamy romantic suspense about an instinct-driven detective and a sexy, scoop-hungry reporter, both on the hunt for a sadistic killer.
Jayda Thomasz is a sassy homicide detective who never lets her emotions get in the way of a case. So when a serial killer re-emerges after 25 years, the last thing she expects is to catch herself fantasising over the hot, smooth-talking stranger who crosses the path of her investigation.
Seth Friedin is a reporter chasing the story that’ll make his career. When he enters the world of swinging for research, he never imagines he’ll be distracted by a hard-talking female detective whose kiss plagues his mind long after she’s gone.
Past experience has shown Jayda that reporters are ruthless and unscrupulous. But when the murders get personal, will she make a deal with the devil to catch the killer? How far will she and Seth have to go? And do you ever really know who you can trust?
