Caught Up In The Rapture Reviews
I liked the story but I felt it was to long and the filler was the couple having sex. This story would have better if it as shorter.Tracey and Jack were a sexy couple but I felt but sex was not their whole story.I as also disappointed that Brickman got away I hope there is a conclusion to this story.
The second book in this series was even better than the first. Ms. Riley outdid herself with this one.
This might have been the first IR I've read. But I can't remember. It's one of those romance/suspense books, but the suspense is thin on the ground and the romance tends to be undercut by some dodgy attempts at suspense. Anyway, this book is second in a series. There's a shadowy villain called Brickman, but he's just as effective as Voldemort in the summer (you know, in the Harry Potter books, Voldemort is all badass during Harry's school term, then come summer, he's nothing? Anyway...).Jacques meets Tracey at a French restaurant in um... France. There's a problem though, Tracey can't speak French, so she can't order anything to eat. The French waiter keeps giving her the hairy eye (I've been to France, that's what they do) because she won't order, but Tracey can't order because she doesn't speak French, and obviously staying in her hotel room and ordering room service is just too easy for her, because she wants to practise her French. Jacques is charmed by her willingness to go hungry just to speak French, and he orders food for her in French and the relationship develops from there.I do remember liking this book in the sense that it was refreshing to see AA's in fiction form being three dimensional and unstereotypical - just some upper middle class black people that I'm sure I've met in my travels just living and being. If the book had just been an exploration of these two people just doing their thing, it would have been enough, you know? The writer might have put in some additional tension (apart from racial, not unless you're going to try and add something new, like a white anti-racist trying to stop the black votes from being gerrymandered and yeah...that might be my plot *snerk*) the book would have worked as is.But no, the author tried to add suspense to the plot, and because the first half of the book was filled with getting to know each other and dating, and parties and the rest, by the time the shadowy presence was a factor, it was too late, and Jacques' business just seemed odd. Then, there's a situation where the two are captured and rescued, it came too close to the ending, and the book just felt a bit rushed and slightly unsatisfory.
Tracy and Jacques meet in Paris and have a wonderful holiday affair without telling eachother that they have US ties. When they both end up at there best friends engagement party. They are surprised to see one another. There best friends are Brian and Caroline from "At Last" Lisa Riley last novel.Jacques is investigating Brickman the man that Terrorized Caroline in "At Last". He actually has a past that has followed Brickman for 15 years. Tracy and Jacques will have to deal with race and personal issues.And the suspense of the case that Jacques is investigating may indanger the ones he cares about.Lisa does a great job with this book. I hope she follows up with one more novel to make this a trilogy.
The book had a good run the begining was great how they met so sweet. Than when they met again heart was racing, but the end was disappointing, it went flat.I guest there will be another book in the making.
