Justice or Love
Moth, the latest book by Jennifer Foor, is a slight departure from the Contemporary Romance genre that I usually read by her. Still sexy as all get out, MOTH is a romance/mystery/thriller involving the DEA, the FBI and a mighty drug cartel. Since we spend the whole of the book in Moth’s head, his attitude comes through loud and clear. He is a man who is incredibly sure of himself with his life completely complicated his work in the DEA.
The story opens with Moth and his team in Guatemala and about to embark on a mission. While Moth is very capable, bad things go-down. Then, Moth finds himself stateside attending to family matters and he finds himself caught up in another mission. The mystery aspect of the story is really well paced, with Moth in an undercover mode and trying to decipher his brothers friend “Windys'” role in his brothers life. Windy is a major distraction for him and it’s in her character that the story includes a thriller romance aspect.
I didn’t feel a connection between them until at least half way through the story. The mystery was building, but aside from Moth’s fervent sex drive, they didn’t gel. When their work connection collides, the pace really picks up. Knowing more about “Windy” changed the dynamics of the characters.
As with every story by Jennifer (that I’ve read), the sexual chemistry between her main characters is intense. Jennifer simply isn’t afraid to show her characters with very strong sexual appetites. So much so that they are very descriptive and at times a bit over the top. With Moth and “Windy”, well they go on a rather long time and Moth uses this to rationalize his involvement with her which further complicates the truth.
As thrillers go, the story closes strong and the final chapters are filled with Moth working his way to her bed in two entirely different ways. I’m more a fan of Jennifer’s contemporary/domestic romance ( The Seven Year Itch series) but Moth is a quick read and great for fans of romance thrillers.
