Book Review: Big Shot

Fate brought Texas rancher Durk Lambert face-to-face with his ex-lover, Meghan Sinclair. The reckless but gorgeous P.I. had been beaten and left for dead, with no memory of her attacker, of Durk…or herself. Years ago she'd broken his heart, but no cowboy walked away from a woman in need.While Durk kept her safe on his Bent Pine Ranch, his own memories threatened him—laughing with Meghan, making love. He still wanted her, but he feared Meghan was the one woman he could never have—and the one he'd lay down his life to protect. Because while Durk wanted her to remember, a killer needed her to forget.

It has been years since I have read one of the more 'classical' Harlequin romances and I did enjoy my trip to the past.  I used to devour these books when I was younger.  I think that my tastes have changed as I have matured however.  I really did expect some more tension in a romantic suspense then was served up.  Instead if I will think of this line as romantic suspense lite I will know just what Harlequin line to grab when I am in the mood.

Overall I did enjoy the story.  Durk is all that a man should be with his strong sense of honor and protectiveness to those that are physically weaker and those that he loves.  The sense of warmness that one gets from the Lambert family is a true delight and Meghan as she recovers her memories is one that fits well within that clan.

The book was cleanly written with the exception of one misspelled word that the editor should have caught as it is a common mistake.  The pacing was great and kept my interest.  

I rate this book a 3 as it was an enjoyable way to pass the time but it doesn't have that special spark that would prompt me to hunt out the previous books in this series.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
