Dr. Jane Farmer is having a really bad
day. First, she is fired by cell phone of all things. Then
she figures out she has signed for a package that doesnít
belong to her but her neighbor. To top it off, her apartment
is trashed. For a marriage and family therapist who does a
public talk radio show, this is an extreme day. Maybe if
she just goes to bed, the next day will be better. Well,
first she has to find a bed.
Lex DíAngelo, a former FBI agent, has
no idea what is going on at his complex, but that many cops
around makes him nervous. Lex decides to ask questions
before confronting the cops and he knows just the person to
ask: his neighbor Dr. Farmer. From the moment Lex surprises
Jane, they are on the run. The first problem being neither
knows why or whoís after them.
Jane and Lex have hardly ever talked to
one another and have some misconceptions about the other.
Being on the run and having to figure things out on the fly
shows both Lex and Jane that maybe they were wrong. They
are both surprised when the tension turns into live sparks.
To grab the bad guy, it takes both Janeís training and Lexís
experience. When things donít go quite as hoped, can Jane
use her current and past knowledge to keep them both alive?
What about their budding relationship?
Leap of Faith kept me flipping the pages fast
and furiously. I had to know if Jane was going to show her
inner self to sexy Lex and if Lex could discover what even
Jane didnít know existed. Jane has worked hard to
re-establish herself after a bad break up. Men were not on
her calendar. Lex has an Italianís love of women, but knows
better than to get involved. Or so he thinks. I could feel
the tension between Jane and Lex from the start and loved it
as I watched it grow and then blossom into passion and
love. Watching Lex help Jane learn about her inner self and
strength just added to the story. I love great suspense and
when you have two characters who mesh so well, it just
brings more to the reading experience. Leap of Faith
has a great storyline, two characters who pop, and a
suspense that makes you wonder what will happen next. If
you love romantic suspense, then you will want to invest in
Ms. Hartís story.
