Intrigue, (Infinitus Billionaires 3), EB Walters

Intrigue, (Infinitus Billionaires 3),  EB Walters

Genre:  Romance,

I hadn’t read the earlier Billionaire books but dived into this assuming they’re standalone but connected reads.
It was a fun read, but one that didn’t have that magic can’t put down quality for me.

I loved Rod, loved Terri and the idea of The Chameleon, but to be honest it seemed a little too far fetched, a little too easy solutions with the way they both had friends that could do all the legal and sometimes illegal things they needed.
I need them to struggle, to work hard to resolve things, for there to be what feel like almost insurmountable issues before they can get to solutions.  When one of them is hanging a man they want info on over the shark tank is a classic example, its just not what it seems and the solution/answer is just too pat. That spoiled it for me, I need that sense that things could happen if the situation was as its given, that feeling of reality and here I just wasn’t feeling it, it just felt to much like fiction.
I know it is fiction of course but for me it doesn’t work if it doesn’t have that air of reality about it, the people, the problems and the solutions.

I missed too the sense of edge of seat drama, there’s lots going on, lots of action, almost non stop at times and yet it never feels totally real to me.
When we got to the part where Terri learns about Rod, I’d expected much more fireworks, much more angst but it didn’t play out that way.

Its one of those stories that good, well planned, well written but which just doesn’t work well for me.
I was a bit disengaged from it, even the hot and steamy sex scenes as it just didn’t seem real, I couldn’t feel they were genuine people and i wasn’t invested enough in  whether they made it through.

Stars: Three, an OK read but one of those that’s not a real hook, must read for me.
