ARC Review ~ Untouchable (Entangled Ignite) by Cindy Skaggs

Untouchable (Entangled Ignite)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: July 21st 2015

Publisher: Entangled (Ignite)

Description:
She'll do whatever it takes to find her son - Lie. Cheat. Steal. Seduce...
As the former wife of an infamous crime boss, Sofia Capri is untouchable. She exists outside of the law...and outside of the criminal world. When her son is kidnapped, Sofia's desperate to find him. She'll do anything. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Anything but trust. But it's a strikingly handsome FBI agent who's her only chance to get her baby back...

Something about Sofia's fiery beauty must be hitting all of his weak spots, because suddenly Mr. Law And Order Logan Stone finds himself bending the rules. When they're implicated in the kidnapping, Logan and Sofia discover a horrifying reality - they have less than 72 hours to find the boy and clear their names.

Now the heat is turning up...and time is running out...for everyone.

My Opinion

Sigh ... 

This book sounded so good. It sounded dark and gritty because of the mob angle, it had FBI agents, and is from a romance publisher I love. Sadly, this book really missed the mark for me, though.

I enjoyed the first 40% of Untouchable, especially the start. It hooked me straight away and because of the angles mentioned above I was excited to see how things progressed and intrigued to know who was behind everything. I believed in the danger, and that there was a threat from Nick. He had the potential to be a ruthless boss.

Unfortunately from that point on though I lost interest until I was barely skimming the end just to find out who was behind everything. The problem was there wasn't enough interaction for me. There were a lot of inner thoughts and repetition--especially on Sofia's side of things--and I felt it made the writing very dry to read. The pace was too slow, dragging out the couple of days it's set over to extreme lengths.

Similarly the time limit was way to short for 'I love yous' to arrive. Sofia went from distrust, to trust, to falling, to love all in the space of two days, admitting it after a few weeks. I don't buy how someone so paranoid and distrusting would change so drastically in such a short period of time even after going through what they had together.

Logan was also a bit underdeveloped. There wasn't enough colour in his character for me and I didn't connect with him at all. I didn't feel the chemistry.


Overall this started off okay but soon went downhill. It had an interesting premise but lacked in execution. It was okay, but I've read a lot better mafia based books.
