The review for Ultimate Prey by Kristine Mason is way overdue. I read the book in April 6, 2015, but never got around to it. I have read almost all her books, and she has quite a few. I love them so much I want to share each and every one, so no way was I just gonna let the notes sit in my binder. As I write the review, it all comes back to me.
Cami and her hubby, Ian are having a romantic getaway on the edge of the Everglades.
She had been a star in the B movie horror circuit. I wonder if I have seen her. I watch a lot of those B movies. lol Kristine Mason creates some of the most unique and fabulous characters I have ever read about. They all have their distinct strengths and weaknesses, and personalities.
Ian hadn’t fired his gun in years, but he had been an FBI agent and created CORE, a criminal investigation agency, with special and talented employees. They probably couldn’t get a job with the police, because of their background of walking a fine line of legal, but they are perfect for him.
Thanksgiving would not be turkey and pumpkin pie for them.
Kristine does not write short novels, so I am wondering how we will spend almost the entire book in the Florida Everglades. She does her research and went on an airboat ride through the Everglades, so I can understand how her descriptive writing rings true, and so easy to visualize.
We are dodging gators, snakes, sawgrass, mangrove roots, swamps, marshes…and bullets. Will someone die from a snake bite? How about getting eaten by a gator?
Kristine does a great job of using foreshadowing to give a clue here and there to what is coming, but you gotta be quick to pick up on it.
I love romantic suspense and one of the requirements is miscommunication, or no communication. Seems to be a problem in real life too, even though everyone knows, to have a successful relationship good communication is a must.
I love how Kristine develops her characters so well, they feel real, like I know them personally. I can walk with them, talk with them, suffer with them and rejoice with them.
Have you ever had a day when it felt like a lifetime? So much happens in Ultimate Prey, that the book felt like a lifetime to me just reading it. If it were to really happen to me, I can imagine I would feel that way too.
Their romance is alive in the tropics, hot and sexy without being graphic.
Uh, oh. I know their decision is wrong. They just cannot get a break.
A predator is after them and he has only one goal and nothing will stand in his way. He wants her! Not to have and to hold, but to torture her. To tear her apart, worse than any alligator could.
WOW…I read until 2:15am, unable to put the book down until I knew the outcome. Kristine Mason creates an aura of evil and suspense that makes her villains some of my favorites. I do love a good bad guy and this one has no redeeming qualities. The hunt through the Everglades is so vivid, it unwinds like a movie in my mind. Love, love, love it and I highly recommend reading Ultimate Prey before you journey through the Everglades. You may rethink your travel plans. LOL
