Review on Amazon.com for Shake Up from a Lilly’s Book World reviewer

December 4, 2017

Format: Kindle Edition

I loved this story quite a lot. It has quite nice characters, both knowing what they want and doing what it takes to achieve it. Yes, it does have some issues, in my opinion, but it is a very enjoyable read, that will stir some of those romantic feelings.

A protective husband, a much determined wife, these are our main characters and they are quite a couple. When Lacey is accepted as a DEA agent, you can imagine how furious her husband had become. Especially since his protective nature wanted her as close as possible. His possessiveness becomes unbearable so Lacey needs some time away to figure things out. When divorce becomes an issue, John realizes they may have bigger problems than he thought. In parallel with their issues, we have undercover agents trying to capture a big time drug dealer. Who’s a husband supposed  to deal with that?

Lacey started as a confident woman, but later in the story she proves to be weaker and always in need of a savior. I appreciated the connection Lacey and John shared and his willingness to do what it takes to recover their marriage. This comes in contradiction with the image of a DEA agent, willing to fight crime. Their love life is quite intense and the way the author describes it is weaved greatly in the story.

Beginning was great and action packed and the characters seemed very strong and developed. But towards the end, the book becomes predictable and it reduces the action part of the story. However, the focus is more on the main characters and how they find common ground.

Even if there may be some items that did not stand quite well with me, I cannot give this book less than 4 stars, as it made me feel good, it made me feel emotions and it kept me focused on both levels – the relationship between the main characters, but as well the case waiting to be solved by the agency. I can’t wait to read more about the other characters and more by this author. Hope you like it as well! Enjoy J
