Everything She Wanted

Jennifer Ryan. Avon Impulse, $3.99 e-book (352p) ISBN 978-0-06-239642-6
The love of money is the root of all evil, and that root sprouts into something deadly in Ryan’s fifth Hunted romantic thriller (after Chasing Morgan). Former foster child Kate Morrison doesn’t trust anyone except her foster sister, Margo. Four months after the birth of Margo’s son, Alex, her multimillionaire boyfriend, Donald, finally files for divorce from his first wife—but before he can marry Margo, the two of them are murdered by Donald’s adult son, Evan, who’s afraid of losing his inheritance. Kate is left to raise tiny Alex on her own. When she asks attorney Ben Knight for help, he’s more than eager to assist in jailing spoiled Evan, who’s gotten away with violent crimes in the past. He’s also excited to see Kate; they shared a passionate kiss years before, but she ran away immediately after. As they fight for their lives, Ben learns to become a part of a ready-made family, and Kate learns to trust the man who’s stolen her heart. Unfortunately, Evan’s characterization is inconsistent, and Kate’s rash decisions will frustrate readers who are trying to like her. Infused with intense drama, a dab of suspense, and oodles of bloodshed, this action-packed romp is a high-stakes page-turner. Agent: Suzie Townsend, New Leaf Literary and Media. (Jan.)
