¾ Forced Alliance ½ Download by Ü Lenora Worth I have received an ARC via NetGalley I didn t read the previous book In Pursuit of a Princess where Connor was introduced but Forced Alliance can be read as a stand alone.
Somehow Forced Alliance reminded me of a steamier version of the TV Series White Collar.
A criminal turned FBI asset Schemes of revenge and betrayal, turned agents and gangster clans Count me in I loved how the stern Josie and charming Connor danced around each other and after all they went through, got their deserved HEA yes, sorry about that spoiler.
As for the ending of the story, I was surprised how it played out but it left me a bit unsatisfied for Connor, where was the retribution for the things he had to endure It was frustrating to read that he sat face to face with the person responsible for his pain not spoilering that and not being able to do anything.
Don t get me wrong, I m not a supporter of violence, but when the agents stopped Connor lashing out at the culprit I was equally angry at the situation.
I guess, I got sucked into the plot because of Lenora Worth s great storytelling For some time I almost felt like watching a movie instead of reading a book.

I love Lenora s books This one is awesome and you just have to buy a copy.
A fun and quick read that leads to interesting discussions about acceptance, sin, and redemption, and the importance of believing in someone no matter what their background is only what is in front of them.
This book follows The Diamond Secret and In Pursuit of a Princess.
All intriguing stories set in New Orleans area.
If you enjoy Mafia type stories, you will enjoy this book.
Forced Alliance Like the story I reviewed a few weeks ago, this book represents a mixed bag there are positives and negatives However, even though I finished at least three fourths of the story, since I did not finish the book completely, it automatically garners a one star rating.
As I have mentioned previously, I love how supportive this community of writers and readers are, but I think it only fair to our genre to be honest aboutmy opinion .
PositivesThe story starts well there is intrigue and, the writing is of higher caliber than some of the other books that I pick up in this genre I love New Orleans and the bayou, so huge points for setting NegativesI am the person who never figures the mystery out Ever Seriously I didn t realize what he meant when he saw dead people I never know whom Sherlock will implicate and, even when I play Clue, I never know it was whomever with the candlestick in the library Yet I figured this one out rather early, and I have to say that the knowledge sort of ruined the story for me and made the other areas of weakness, such as uneven writing and somewhat weak characterization at least from my perspective I did not care a fig about any of the characters , stand out No writing is perfect, but quite a few of the similes, metaphors, and descriptions just do not make sense For example smoke clouding her in a scorching blanket of choking heat page 139 The heat cannot come from the smoke Pick one metaphor and or disconnect them A cloud of smoke A blanket of heat But not mixed Connor s home Eclectic and sterile Edited and minimalist Artsy and comfortablea hint of steam punk mixed with a futuristic vibe page 204 There is so much description here that there is no description here Also, in my opinion, many of these descriptors e.
g sterile and comfortable minimalist and artsy simply do not coincide In any event, I have heard that Ms Lenora Worth s books are good, so I will definitely pick up another of her stories.
The heroine is one brave lady Going after a Mafia boss is not something I ever wanted to do She seems to take it all in stride but a lot of that has to do with trying to prove to herself and everyone else that she is good enough for the job and not like her father Either one of those can be daunting but to tackle both in her job would be overwhelming for most people Fortunately for those around her, she isn t most people She works to stay focused on the important things To complicate matters, she is working for a boss who doesn t really care for her and she is forced to work with a confidential informant that she has trouble trusting Forced Alliance seems to be an understatement I enjoyed the suspense and drama as the book unfolds Is this really the time and place for romantic feelings I guess you will have to read it and draw your own conclusions I recommend it if you like suspense.
Ordinarily, I enjoy all the books by Lenora Worth, but this was not one of my favorites The reasons I did not enjoy it as well as the others were totally personal preferences Normally, I love her books, and she is a talented and creative author.
