Queen of Tarts review of
by Sandra Brown
I just finished reading Mean Streak by Sandra Brown and I couldn’t put it down! I was pinned to my chair and flipping pages as quick as I could. The intrigue, danger, and fast pace were nail biting inducing but the characters are what made me care. I worried about Emory and her mystery man and I needed all the strings to be untangled. Sandra Brown didn’t disappoint me. 😉
This story starts with the heroine Emory heading off to practice for an upcoming marathon. Running brings her peace and helps her clear her head, she especially needs that right now because her marriage has become a union of two strangers.
This story is full of twists and turns and I was caught up in the mystery around Emory’s misadventure on her run and the taciturn man who offers her help -on his terms. I wasn’t sure what to think of him at first but… actions speak louder than words and the actions of all the players in this drama painted a picture of their character.
A few of my fav lines.
♥ It bothered him that her instinctual distrust was so strong.
It bothered him even more that is was valid.
Nothing else, no one else, had ever distracted him from his resolve. She did.
♥ Every feminine urge had sprung to life, and it wasn’t just the long dormancy that had made her sexual desire so acute. It was him. She wanted to experience him, every rough surface, every gruff word,…
Mean Streak is edge of your seat suspense with the perfect blend of chemistry and romance. I loved the dialogue and characters. I developed strong opinions of who I was rooting for but was surprised multiple times by the directions the story went. I loved every minute of it!
