Thunderstruck by Bijou Hunter
Escaping a madman...

My name is Darla, but he calls me Rose. I thought running would keep me safe. Instead, the monster hunts me, certain I will be his again.

Shattered and waiting for death...

Nine months in hell has left my mind ruined. My heart claims I'm no more than a burden. My soul only wants to embrace the darkness.

A retired assassin...

Troy brings the security skills of a former killer. I am his first legit job. He has no reason to make this assignment personal, but our connection can't be denied.


Troy awakens the part of me that still feels... hopes... loves.

From the start, I realized that this story had the potential to be just a little bit different (and quite awesome). I've read from this author and was an instant fan so reading something else from her was no hardship. This type of storyline would usually draw my eye and my complete attention... Girl was kidnapped, held captive by a madman, finally escaped, and has hired a team to take down the bad guy and keep her safe. How can anyone resist that? So of course I dived right in. And then I quickly started drowning in the utter absurdity of the female protagonist.

At first, I thought it was just the author building the heroine as a person who had suffered and that her healing wasn't going to happen overnight. You know, something more realistic. But then the heroine didn't really change. She came off as childish and aggressively irritating and remained that way right until the end. Aside from her constant panic and terror, there was virtually no character development for her. Actually, I felt like all the characters came off as one-dimensional. And while I was more entertained and interested by everyone else BUT Darla, it wasn't enough for me to love this story. There were a lot of OTT moments, a heroine that couldn't get a grip and failed to garner much sympathy from me, and a hero who used to love strong and fierce warriors and who now seemed to find pathetic and extremely dependent women insanely attractive.

Will I read from this author again? Probably.
