Bone Deep review from My Book Cravings
"Flight attendant Hailey Rockwell has just been dumped by her pilot boyfriend, David. He’s decided that he ‘needs a little time’ away to consider where their relationship is going. The problem is that the jerk really just wants to move on to another woman, and he tells his best friend an enormous lie to keep Hailey off his back. Hailey thought they were together for the long haul and had even started to think about marriage. Imagine her surprise when she finds out nearly everyone at work knew she was being dumped before she did.
Kevin believes his best friend when he’s told that Hailey is threatening to expose their affair to his wife. So he agrees to entice her away and make her forget all about David and how much she cares for him. When he sees her leave the airport terminal, he follows her out into the rain and comes to her rescue during a time when she’s feeling alone, miserable and vulnerable.
Ms. Alan has constructed a well written tale of the emotional upheaval a young woman experiences when her hopes and dreams are unexpectedly destroyed. The sex between Hailey and Kevin is intense and passionate, and David, her ex-boyfriend is definitely a jerk that you love to hate. Her descriptions of Hailey fragile emotional state was well done and vivid, leaving me little doubt to the extent of the pain she was experiencing. Kevin’s uncertainty of his feeling toward Hailey are equally well done, but his trust in the lying, conniving jerk he called his best friend left me with an unpleasant taste in my mouth. After all he was well aware that David had been having multiple affairs behind his wife’s back, so why’d be believe what he said about Hailey in the first place, I don’t understand. And why would she still want to go back to man who’d hurt her so badly. I think that if the story had been a little longer so that I could have gotten a better idea of what motivated the characters to act the way they did, I would have enjoyed it more." --Pam
Well, she wanted it to be longer and she hated the villain...how much more can you ask for? That's the thing about villains...they do pull the wool over our eyes.
