Review: Intensity BY CC Koen
Intensity by C.C. Koen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
3 1/2 rounded up to 4
The synopsis on this grabbed me.... I mean a virgin working in an escort service?? How does that work?? So I dove in.. needing to find out how this was going to play out.... I figured she would get sold to the highest bidder.... but Im not going to tell you... you'll have to read to find out ;)
I didn't love this one. I didnt hate this one. I just felt it kind of drug and then BOOM everything happened at the end and it made it feel rushed. I liked the plot, I like the writing style, I just felt things were drawn out and as I wondered if there would ever be any action, I was overloaded with it in the last few chapters. The last few chapters were amazing. And I wish the entire book was more like they were. Does that make sense??
Now, dont get me wrong, the book was NOT a snooze fest. I enjoyed it. I liked the characters. There was good friction between Serena and some of the other girls she was working with. I loved Serena's character. She was strong, and feisty, and independent. She had a brain and a thought process and she wasn't afraid to use it. She said what she thought and she meant what she said. I adored her.
Linc was lush... I adored him. He was a bit broody, and he his his emotions. I couldn't get a read on him, and he remained a mystery right up to the end. And I loved the way it played out. He was a tortured soul, and when his secret was revealed, his live driving force, I actually cried a bit.... one word --- heartbreaking.
I loved the two characters together. I thought they worked well together. They balanced each other out, and Serena had a good "handle" on "handling" the moody, secretive Alpha Male. And he protected her and every turn. I love the dynamic they had.
I hope there is a follow up. I want to know more and I really hope a book is written about Serena's best friend, Marlena. I loved that woman. Wait until you meet her. I want to know all of her secrets. And how she ended up working in an escort service. I want to know about Jax as well. The secondary characters in this book were fabulous. And Im hoping a few of them get their story told.
