Review: OUTLAWED LOVE by Jason Krumbine

Reviewer: Lindsey

"Kate Sharpe, US Marshal, is a woman on a mission with no time for love or romance. Her prisoner, the handcuffed hottie, Kyle Archer, just turned State’s evidence on notorious mobster Jonathon Bragan. Kate’s responsible for getting him from the courthouse to the jailhouse, but can she do it without losing her heart?"
(Amazon product description)

Outlawed Love

The cover.....

Now, you prudish folks out there--I know the cover is putting.  But hear me out. I like this man's writing.  No one was more thrown off than moi over this. I am not a good romance reader. I usually resort to Jr. High snickering.

HEY!! Look at me, not at the cover! 

I can calm your fragile senses by telling you this book does not contain any swashbuckling pirates or chippendale superhero's.  I find the cover slightly misleading, although the model is very photogenic.  I have never been so blasted happy to own a Kindle.  I would have died 1000 deaths if FireDaddy saw this. Why you ask? Would he be jealous?  No. Would he think I was some whoring tramp? (He wishes) No.  He would make fun of me until I cried that's why!!! I had to make sure not to gaze upon it too long. I did check to make sure that I was reading the correct never know when a computer glich could cause your Kindle books to get covers mixed up...ahem...yes. So periodically check your cover and make sure your reading the right book!  Check it a few times. I am nothing if not thorough.

This book was fun--just what I needed to get me through Xmas Eve!!! I read it in one night. I know, I know...she's a Marshall, he's a prisoner that she has to escort to Miami.  The plane ride goes wrong, and for reasons I CAN'T DISCUSS they have to run.  It slightly reminded me of my favorite Clooney movie. The one where he is the prisoner and Lopez is the cop? This book has lots of action, panicky moments and smoochiness for you sickos...but not overkill.  I appreciate writers who can write a smoochy scene without making the reader feel like they are voyeurs.

So if you are a book snob and hiss when you look at cover...uummm stop looking. BACK TO ME!  Then load up your Kindle.  No one will see it.  Tell them your reading War and Peace.

I believe I read something about a possible sequel, or maybe I am hoping for one??

Load up that Kindle...NOW. It's a great way to start the new year! :)
