Jackson Thanks netgalley for the early edition read, in exchange for an unbiased review Ugh Read as much as I m going to about 100 pages DNF I didn t expect great literature, just a fast paced, entertaining mystery Instead it was a romance, if you can call a novel wherein an immature man with little to no impulse control trembles and groans and moans about frustrated desire, a man who uses

relationship would be very difficult Nonetheless, the heart wants what the heart wants when it comes to Colton and Cassie.As I read this book, I admit that it was a read that I couldn t engage in I felt that it dragged quite a bit Quite naturally, I was rooting for the couples to find love As far as mystery and intrigue were concerned, it was a bit lacking But, I adore Lisa Jackson, so I worked hard at reading this book and I am eager to read her next release,ParanoidMany thanks to Zebra and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion I m not sure whether I didn t read the blurb at all or just skimmed through it but this book was not what I expected it to be I read a couple of books by this author and generally liked them, I thought this time that I was requesting a mystery and it turned out to be the kind of romances I don t like to read It is actually a reissue of two books published separately in the eighties collected together in the same edition

reissue of two books published separately in the eighties collected together in the same edition From my humble point of view that wasn t a good decision The first story was relatively bearable although it felt composed mainly of different variations of the same kind of scenes and it annoyed me The story was by no means unique, and i had to skip many parts It was mostly a 2 Stars story for me Now the second book, which is set in the same place and featuring characters related to those of the first story, was just not good enough, I really felt like reading the exact same story as the first one with just different names Even the twists felt just thrown into the story I thought I would give it all 2 Stars, just because I finished it but then I changed my mind It was disappointing and I was annoyed while reading it I m just sorry I didn t check the plot summary better as i normally wouldn t read this type of stories Thank you NetGalley, the publisher and author for this copy in

remembered I also enjoyed that the book had a resolution and that it has a nice tight conclusion with a few twists Then you have Aftermath which deals with Colton and Cassie and this one I had a harder time wrapping my head around Not because the relationship wasn t believable but because Colton was such a hard character for me to enjoy in the first book After a gun shot wound, he comes back home and Cassie is back in his life and he is not sure that it is something he wants or can handle While I do not want to give away the story the crafty back story helps the reader understand there

he did to Cass Colton finds that he still cares for Cass after all these years, but does she feel the same She has every right to be made at him but he just wants to call a truce and that their fighting will stop Can that be Can they at least be friends I usually love reading Lisa Jackson books for the mystery and suspense and keeping me on the edge of my seat This book was far from what I was expecting from such a talented author It was a story full of romance and second chances not mystery suspense I actually skimmed 1 2 of the book because it was just plain slow and boring Would definitely not recommend Thank you netgalley for letting me give an honest review of this book. Backlash is a reissue of two books in one volume by Lisa Jackson written 30 years ago The books are Aftermath and Tender Trap They feature two brothers who return to Montana reluctantly to tend to their parents ranch Both left lovers behind years before so both are stories of second chance romance I enjoyed both although they are somewhat dated and the endings were rushed.
