The Most Important Catch by Jaclyn M. Hawkes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am happy to be a part of The Most Important Catch Blog Tour today. This was the first Jaclyn M. Hawkes novel that I've read, and I found it to be an entertaining story with very likable characters.
"She knew too much, and she’d seen too much. And the police refused to help. Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid under head to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.
When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him. Or was she?
His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn't nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except her heart."
The romance was quite believable-not rushed like most romance novels. Although, at times I was a little impatient for the characters to admit their feelings for each other, I enjoyed how they built their friendship and trust by working together.
Religion is a big part of this LDS Fiction novel, and for the most part Hawkes is able to integrate it well with the flow of the story.
It might sound silly, but I liked when I came across the title in some dialogue in the book. Sometimes you wonder how a title is picked, and it was fun reading it in the story.
The suspense aspect also kept me turning the pages. This was a clean and enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more of Jaclyn M. Hawkes' books.
