I loved all the books of Lexi graves Mysteries but the ending I did not like because its sad how she just gives up on Maddox and just goes on to Solomon she should have choose Maddox instead so I'm very disappointed right now
I'm inclined to fall in line with a previous review, great story that I'd probably have given a 5 rating to had it not been for the triangle cliffhanger.
After seeing Adam in a lip lock, I fluctuated between her giving it time and solving the case platonically with Solomon before returning his calls to hear what Adam had to say. And then the other part of me feels she did nothing wrong with Solomon, because all she could go by is what she saw with her own eyes, that Adam hadn't taken a minute of his alone time to atleast call her for two weeks before she witnessed the kiss, and the fact that in Adam's replies after receiving 'we're over' he did not once shoot an immediate 'it's not what it looked like'. So what was Lexi supposed to think? A simple 'it's not what it seemed' could have gone a long way. Begs the question, why didn't he shoot her that reassurance ASAP after he knew she witnessed his date?
I'd love to hear what Solomon thinks? How he feels? I think she should come clean with both right away; with Solomon about Adam's cheating and subsequent denial and forthcoming with Adam about accepting Solomon's pass after he found out they were over. It would be interesting to see how each reacts.
Command indecision (Lexi Graves Mysteries, 3)
I really have enjoyed all three books. Can't wait for book four.
These are well written, and hard to put down. Reminds me of Stephanie Plum books.
