Review - Defensive Tactics by Steve Westover

Paul Stephens has it all--a wonderful job at the FBI, a new girlfriend, and a great apartment. Even when Jimmy, a friend from his past, unexpectedly ends up on his couch, Paul has no worries. But when arresting a corrupt judge puts his girlfriend's life in danger, Paul and Jimmy will do anything to save her. How far will Paul go to protect the ones he love? Filled with suspense and action, Defensive Tactics shows just how much the bonds of friendship can endure. Defensive Tactics was an engaging, fast-paced story. I really enjoyed Jimmy's character and seeing him overcome his struggles and give life a try. Emily was a tough but sweet heroine. Paul also grew throughout the story and learned to serve for something other than selfish reasons. The plot was interesting and kept me reading. I struggled a bit with the writing style, but all in all Defensive Tactics is a fun, quick read. Buy it here. * I was given a free copy of this book for review but it didn't affect my review.

Young Adult Fiction?

My s-i-l gave me The Reluctant Heiress by Eva Ibbotson. I adored the book. It was so well-written I even read the scenery description (I usually speed read all description). I'm excited to read other books by Eva Ibbotson, but I thought it was interesting that they are selling this book as a YA when the heroine was in her 20s, the hero over 30. Am I confused about the parameters of YA? I wonder if The Reluctant Heiress is YA because it was a clean romance. Whatever the book is shelved under, The Reluctant Heiress is a deligthful read. Inside the cover they suggested some other authors with similar styles (I'm hoping that means they're also clean, well-written romances that are interesting to adults as well as youth). Here's the list: Anne Osterlund Jacqueline Woodson Bette Greene Micol Ostow Sarah Dessen Please add your own suggestions in the comments section. Thanks!
