When I read Disorderly Conduct, the first book in the series, I was delightfully surprised! In fact, I went ahead and requested the second book, Indecent Exposure because Jack Garrett was very interesting and what do you know, the second book is his HEA.
But no! This book was an utter disappointment! Where was the charm? Where was the explosive chemistry that I was expecting? Gone. Nada. Zilch.
Also, Jack was not likable at all. He had all the negative qualities that seemed to drag on and on that I finally could not take it! I get that he has issues and does have a lot of baggage (he is an alcoholic) but man, he just rubbed me the wrong way. It is a little surprising because he was a pretty damn good friend in the first book that I had a hard time reconciling his personality in his own book to the previous one.
I liked Katie. In fact, she is a pretty cool heroine but she just couldn’t carry the whole romance. I don’t know. Maybe Jack becomes likable in the end? Anyway, I just couldn’t get to that part and after a few weeks of putting this book on hold, I finally DNF’d it.
I’m not sure what happens as the book progressed but I just didn’t find the interest in continuing this book.
I do have high hopes for the next book, though. And I’m really excited for Disturbing the Peace.
