“Crazy with Action
“The novel grabs your attention at the inception, but as it progressed I was unable to understand the genre. The first shoot em out chapters had no relevance to the remainder of the book. The character John Reeves is criminally reckless with his gun around youths, yet he is held out to be a hero.
The character of Kelley is also a bit confusing. She is strong, but giggles at everything and seems to have no distinct bearing on the theme. I wanted to love the book but I must settle for 3 stars.I apologize to the author and I wish him well. Some day I'll read another of his works”
“Crazy with Action
John Reeves is not exactly a stand-up kind of a guy, but in a dangerous situation, he is definitely, one you want on your side. When Reeves follows his fiancée to Myrtle Beach to attempt to repair their relationship that he screwed up, little does he know that he is walking into a hot situation. Reeves finds his fiancée in the hospital after an explosion and decides that the least he can do is investigate the explosion. That decision puts him in touch with Billy Hitchings, and things go crazy from there.
This book is full of interesting characters that make bad decisions. Reeves is a likeable guy, except that he was unfaithful to his fiancée and Billy Hitchings is a young man that has never put much effort into his life, still living with his grandmother. When they cross paths, Reeves feels sorry for Billy, and afraid that someone is out to get him. The action pops so quickly, making the story a wild ride, then after multiple twists and turns, it hits a super surprise ending. I recommend this for lovers of action, especially with a James Bond (minus the girls) atmosphere.

“This was a good book - it held my attention but I can honestly say that I don't know the purpose of the "plates". I absolutely loved how the book ended - it was such a surprise to me, although others may have seen it coming. Billy was a great character; young and inexperienced, but full of emotion. I think that Kelly (John's fiancee/ex-fiancee) will be featured in more of the John Reeves stories, as well as Amfar (a character that I didn't really understand but he will probably be part of future stories).”Raine wrote this review Saturday, March 24, 2012.
