- Murphy's Law
on July 16, 2012
Romance, intrigue, mystery, and suspense...this book had it all in spades and I had so much fun reading it. Alexis works in the family business as an assassin although it most definitely is not her dream job. Her code name is Murphy because she has consistently bad luck when she goes out on a job. It sucks for her, but it makes for really entertaining reading.
She's been an assassin for several years and besides some really rotten luck, she's never had any real problems. But now a real problem has found her in the guise of a stalker...one who knows exactly who she is and what she does. As if that hasn't complicated her life enough, she has her own new obsession...her roommate's brother Dane, who just also happens to be an FBI agent.
There was so much I loved about Lexi's character. I love how her brain gets away from her around Dane and she says things that she plans to only think. I love how she KNOWS that she needs to stay far away from Dane, but can't resist him when he's near. Their chemistry is amazing.
Dane is a hot FBI agent. We got glimpses of him in his agent persona. If I had one wish for this book, I would have liked to have seen him in that Alpha mode a bit more when it came to Lexi's situation, but there are moments when *sigh* he was just so luscious and protective of her. I loved that.
I also really loved Lexi's brother, Van. I'm really hoping that this is going to be a series and we'll get to see him in his own book. He's a seriously sexy character. And I love that he's a twin with a whole mystery about what's happened with their other sister. Like I said, lots of intrigue in this book.
And let me just say...I was so wrong by who the bad guy was. I completely was sure that it was someone else in the book. I love it when I get it wrong like that. So fabulous! Just a great read. It definitely made for a great Sunday afternoon read!
- Inertia (Impulse, Book One)

It's interesting the way that the author is setting up this series. This is a trilogy following the story of two men, Derrick and Gavin, through Derrick's eyes. At the time of writing this review, I haven't yet read the other two installments, but it seems to me that the author is setting up the books to show the stages of dating for this couple. I like that idea. As the first in the series, this book is showing how Derrick and Gavin come to be in a relationship. That isn't as straight-forward as you would think. Gavin still has some lingering issues from his former boyfriend. We just see glimpses of this in this book, but I have a feeling that is going to come more into play in books #2 and #3.
For Derrick, this is a relationship that he never saw coming. For seven years (through high school and college) he dated the same girl. They grew apart, broke up, but still remained friends. That break-up was ten years ago. She knew he was attracted to boys when they broke up and now she's urging him to get out there and "live"...because he's never done that. When they broke up, he was the primary caregiver to his grandparents who raised him. He basically spent three years watching them die. As a result, he just never felt the urge to try for another relationship. He had a HUGE physical blow to his psyche with her break-up and their death and he just doesn't want to open his heart to a possibility of pain like that again.
And the thing is...Derrick is such a nice guy, but completely clueless when it comes to a relationship. He doesn't know the protocol for even the most basic of dating rituals...flirting, asking someone out, first kiss, etc. You can't help but fall in love with and hurt for his character. He is so far out of his element here...with dating in general, much less dating a guy which he has NEVER done. While reading you want to just give him a hug and then a shove towards Gavin.
To me, Gavin is more your typical gay guy. He's very put together and usually self-confident, but there are cracks. You don't get any of the story from his POV, but you get to where you can spot that all isn't quite as it seems. Something has happened to him to fracture his self-confidence. There are lingering things going on here which makes him reluctant to get involved with Derrick, even though he obviously wants to become involved.
This book was a great start to the series and I can't wait to see where this couple goes from here, because things have definitely just begun and it's obviously not going to be all smooth sailing.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
