⚠️ Boy does this author like to write crazy stories involving women and cars!
⚠️ I will start by noting that this book has some issues in my opinion. There are some confusing storylines (too many unreliable narrators), some extremely convenient situations, and more than a few ridiculous occurrences. Do I care? No! Because this was an explosive read with a bad*ss heroine who took care of business!
⚠️ Once the action started it didn’t stop! I read this in one sitting!
⚠️ If this book doesn’t end up on the big screen, I’ll be shocked.
⚠️ Not all enjoyable reads have to be great literature or have an epic plot. Sometimes it is simply fun to race through an exciting/claustrophobic/tense situation, well beyond anything I’d ever experience in real life (hopefully), and get through it to a satisfying conclusion. This author does that well… at least for me. I will continue reading his books!
Thank you @NetGalley and Joffe Books for an eARC of this book, which I reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
