An action packed adventure with a strong female lead. The background story may be troubling for some readers, focusing on child abuse, but is handled delicately. Fast paced and engaging, I look forward to the next installment.

It was okay, with an interesting plot but I felt the book just wasn't on her best

This was a quick & enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more by Chelsea Cain (i.e. the rest of this series).

i was pretty excited when i heard chelsea cain had a new book....but if you are thinking this is anything like her old stuff...forget it.

the first in what will apparently be a series, its basically "fluffy" and chick lit with a little butt kicking heroine thrown in, barely really on the butt kicking, the plot goes to all the obvious places and despite a few laughs was pretty uninspired.

sorry but her older dark and seriously twisted psycho murderers were far more interesting....kick is a semi-snooze.

One of the best books I've read in a long time. Yes the main character is flawed but very interesting. Can' t wait for the next book.

I chose this book based on its title and cover quotes (I should've checked your comments on our website first ~ I agree wholeheartedly!). I will try the author again. It's sad though, I believe this could have been a much better book..

I read another book by this author. That one kept me riveted, I found this not to be the same caliber.

This is a well-written, but troubling novel. Additionally, the character is more flawed than the book blurb lets on. However, I am interested to see how this character will develop.

Solid, though uninspiring.
