Review: Heart at Risk

Heart at Risk
Heart at Risk by Ana Leigh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I hate chickenshit people, people who are so glass-half-empty they don’t live. Bad enough heroine Maddie is that way, but she’s smothering her son in a plastic bubble of unreality as well.

Kurt’s a Navy SEAL working with the CIA on a nasty organ-trafficking case. When he stops off in his old hometown and runs into Maddie, she tells him about his – their – son. Scotty is a joy, and Aunt Beth ROCKS. Kurt is seriously bucking for sainthood, and I wanted him to have his head examined b/c I seriously could not see what he SAW in Maddie.

I’m a Navy brat and a cop’s kid, and those guys who put on the uniform every day to keep people safe and secure are HEROES. Maddie treats Kurt like dirt, accuses him of being a lover of violence and a bad influence on his son. A Navy SEAL a BAD influence? Anyone in this country buy that? Seriously?

This was listed as a romantic suspense, but it was uneven. The “romance” would take over for a long period of time, then a chunk of the “suspense” story was plopped in, and then the “romance” again. Made it not so suspenseful. And I didn’t like Maddie. She came across as a coward and a prude. Kurt deserved better.
