Dirty Dozen 2 (12 Taboo XXX Tales) oLy breathing hardn their necksI wned the second book so I ll probably read it but no rush I hate the heroine She s too contradictory she s a pussy and I ll eat glass before I believe the Smart in this book title refers to Bailey No way I ve read ver some pretty horrible heroines and I have high standards for the girls that try to take n the bad guys all by themselves If they re TSTL I put the book down I don t want to suspend my disbelief so a character doesn t seem too stupid to not get killed I mean really Vampires werewolves explosions not killing people guys kicking ass after taking a bullet I can suspend my disbelief for those things But when some stupid blonde should have been dumped n her ass by the hero and left to rot because she s not nly a shitty person but a dangerous waste f time I m not buying itNoah is a great character I liked him a lot and continued reading this crappy book for another hundred pages just because he was yummy But Bailey is retarded and I can t stomach her any She s supposed to be terrified her life in danger etc But she spends all her time either a swooning ver Noah s hard body b trying to run ff into the frozen wilderness all by her lonesome and c shaking like a leafIf the author tells me that this character is too scared to function WHY THE HELL DOES SHE KEEP TRYING TO MAKE THAT CHARACTER FUNCTIONThis is just a mess I can t finish it Jill Shalvis is a fabulous writer Time and again she has seamlessly blended humor and heat with some sort f suspense all while ensuring that an emotional connection between each immensely charismatic hero and intelligent strong heroine not nly exists but evolves and deepens in a believable emotional manner That has held true for every single Jill Shalvis book that I have read and I ve read than a few except unfortunately for this neThat is not to say that the humor isn t there there are some very funny moments and lines And the heat is definitely present and accounted for as the chemistry between Noah and Bailey is intense and translates into truly steamy encounters And the book has suspense there is definitely a thriller aspect to the story that involves the hero and heroine repeatedly being chased by armed thugsIt all sounds good So what s the problem you may ask Well I would say the issue is that disbelief can nly be suspended so much and so far before Greetings! one is in dangerf rolling her eyes so ften that she runs the risk f permanently injuring herself Tribeca or at the very least gettingne heck Grey's Lady of a headache First it s true that Noah has been hot for Bailey for some time yetnce she hijacks him and his plane yes hijacks that attraction is evidently than enough Blue Streak of a valid reason for him to risk his life to help hern numerous The Asketikon of St Basil the Great occasions That wouldn t be such a problem if Bailey were a good heroine She s sweet and certainly ddoesn t deserve to become embroiled in the mess that serves as the impetus for the aforementioned hijacking Unfortunately she enters too stupid to live territoryn a routine basis She just seems utterly incapable f taking care f herself and always needs Noah who is a master f all trades apparently and n MacGuyver like levels to rescue her This is a woman who wears high heels when she knows that This is a woman who wears high heels when she knows that will likely have to run and climb Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time on snowy icy terrain This is a woman who begins the story already having the information she needs to figureut where to find what she s looking for in Thoroughly Disarmed order to getut f her situation yet even though she has exceedingly long stretches f time in which she can think things After the Ashes over she just can t figure itut until Noah prompts her to do so Near the end f the book ReallyPlus and this is something that
