Big Jack (In Death, book 17.5)

Big Jack

So I know I should be doing homework, but guess what guys? I finished another novel by J.D. Robb instead, and yes this is part of the series I know you simply cannot wait for me to talk about. It has simply been so long since I last wrote a review I may be a little off on this…or maybe not. Here is a brief synopsis of the novel provided by Goodreads (I do love that website): In New York City in 2059, someone is pursuing missing gems from a decades-old heist…someone who’s willing to kill for them. Sharp-witted and sexy, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is used to traveling in the shadowy corners outside the law. And in a future where crime meets cutting-edge technology, she will attempt to track down the diamonds once and for all-and stop the danger and death that have surrounded them for years.

I quite enjoyed this novel. It was more of a murder mystery that I originally thought. This novel brought the crime drama to life with Eve following leads on a 50-year-old jewel heist. I know this book is a bit out-of-order from the other novels (considering I’m reading book 22 right now). I almost forgot to put this review together. Anyways, back to the story.I love the back story on this novel, a woman writing a novel about a 50-year-old jewel heist where some of the money was lost. This novel had it all: intrigued, love, murder. I simply cannot find one thing wrong with this novel. The pace of the novel went smoothly and never seemed rushed or dragged out.

The sex scenes were amazing! Simple enjoy reading them again and again. My favorite is Eve and Roarke’s verbal battles that they enjoy partaking every time they see each other. Here is a small segment to explain what i am talking about… “‘Please, Lieutenant. I can’t be bought.” “I will give you the sexual favor of your choice at the next possible opportunity.” “Done.” Simply fantastic. Roarke and Eve are simple a joy to read about. I love how their relationship progresses over the course of this series. They have problems like all couples do, they simply do not ride off into the sunset to claim their happy ever after. This novel and the other novels shows the hard work and dedication in the characters of Eve and Roarke to make their relationship last. I Love Roarke! He is one of my favorite male leads. He is witty, charming, and stubborn to the core. All those characteristics make him perfect for Eve.

Overall, I give this novel a 5 out of 5. I can read this novel again and again and never get tired of it. This series is written very well. I hope that my review helps you to pick up the nearest In Death book so that you can understand my passion for this series. Look forward to my next review on Memory in Death.
