Trouble in High Heels
by Christina Dodd
‘Fortune Hunter’ series Book #1
When Brandi Michaels discovered her fiance has hopped a flight to Vegas to marry someone else, she spends a sultry night in the arms of a gorgeous Italian stranger named Roberto Bartolini. Convinced she’s found the perfect revenge, she then goes home to find that her apartment’s been ransacked, she’s become the mark for a killer, and somehow her new lover is more of a stranger than she though. As the web of danger around her tightens, Brandi has no choice but to turn to Roberto. One thing’s for sure … she’s not going down without a fight.
Review: Finished either end of March or beginning of April 2007. Sorry, can’t remember exact day.
Every once in a while, I pick up a book just for the hell of it, just for a fun read. Sometimes, I need a break from the nail-bitting suspense or the horror and terror of other books. This one was refreshing! I laughed a few times, feeling what Brandi was feeling (near the beginning because of the ‘ex-fiance’ and near the end thinking and feeling like a doormat,) tears and laughter make for a pretty good book. I liked Brandi’s character, the way she developed is something I enjoyed. No holds barred. At the end, when she refused to be the ‘doormat’ she thought he was playing her, even if unknowingly sticking herself in a dangerous situation, took a lot of guts, more than I can say for some characters I’ve read. What I enjoyed most was the ‘idiocy’ of Roberto showing up at her office with the dragonsuit on. ‘Do what you gotta do to win back the girl.’ I really like that motto, I’ve read the things the guys had done to win back his girl, but this one tops them all off. Sure, injury to pride and dignity, but he won back his girl. Couldn’t have asked for better.
