The last book in Beverly Barton's popular "Protectors" series...which is rather sad. Anyway, Dying For Youfeatures not only the oft-requested couple Lucie and Sawyer, but also wraps up storylines for Cara and Bain, and Daisy and Geoff. The book starts off with Lucie finally getting fed up with Sawyer's treatment of her at Dundee's because of their past together. And while all this is going on, Cara is trying to convince Bain they can make a relationship work despite her being filthy rich, and Daisy decides to go after her man, Geoff. Lucie and Sawyer must also dredge up the past and finally put their issues behind them...all the while trying to find out who wants Cara dead. There are three romantic couples...and though Lucie and Sawyer are supposed to be the main one, Cara and Bain get a lot of face-time as well. And I was ENDLESSLY annoyed by the fact that Barton neglected to resolve the fate of a certain character...who was seriously injured near the end. Otherwise, I enjoyed Dying For You. Good romance, great characters, interesting storyline...an all around solid read.
I didnt like the reason the couple was apart, and the suspense story could have been better. STORY BRIEF: Lucie and Sawyer work for a private security firm. Lucie has loved Sawyer for years. Sawyer and his people go there to rescue Lucie. REVIEWERS OPINION: The two love stories, Lucie/Sawyer and Cara/Bain are based on the guys refusing to act on their feelings and denying their desires for the women. He told Sawyer that he had people searching for clues as to who abducted Lucie and where she was being held. After a day or so, Salazar told Sawyer exactly where she was. I would have preferred seeing more details about how Salazar got that information instead of being told heres where the hostage is being held.
lucie berharap dia akan menemukan saat yg tepat untuk menjelaskan pada sawyer apa yg terjadi sebenarnya 9 tahun yg lalu. saat sawyer menjadi CEO dundee, dia memberikan assigment2 yg sulit & jelas membuat lucie marah agar lucie menyerah & resign. hingga suatu saat sawyer memberikan tugas pada lucie untuk menjadi bodyguard tugas yg membuat lucie nyaris menjadi korban rape & membuatnya mengalami memar2 dibbrp bagian tubuhnya. sawyer memang sengaja memberikan tugas itu pada lucie tp dia tidak mengira kalo lucie akan mengalami pelecehan sejauh itu. sawyer sebenarnya sangat peduli pada lucie namun dia tidak mampu bersatu dengan lucie tanpa merasa bersalah karna membuat adiknya bunuh diri.
Sawyer and Lucie's story was anticipated by me for a long time and I have to say it did not disappoint. The only thing I would have improved upon was more of the book being devoted to Sawyer and Lucie and longer love scenes. As stated there were many characters in this book and several love stories and I felt they somewhat took away from time that should have been Sawyer and Lucie's, even though I loved those characters too.
I hated that Sawyer didn't just LISTEN ONCE to Lucie's explanation and save them both nine years of pointless grief. Totally wasted bacause of this stupid guy.
I felt this book was trying too hard to cover everything the author wanted to convey at this, the last book in the Dundee Agency series.
That kind of took me out of the fantasy aspect of the book, which is what I'm looking for when I read.
