The Hitchhiker by Charlie Lee


Goodreads Review




"You can run, but can you hide?"

Life was perfect.
I was on top of the world winning one case after the other leaving no survivors in the wake of my devastation. They may see a pair of long legs in Louboutin heels, but remember my name when I'm finished with them.

Caitlin Winslow, the best, cut-throat defense lawyer in California.
I never play to lose.
It's not in my DNA.
The actions of ethics don't exist in my domain.

Satan, my father, who shaped my life turns up dead. Kill shot to the back of the head in his sleep. The people who murdered him aren't stopping with his death. They're after me.

I ran in the dark of night. Karma that evil bitch meets me step by step and forced me to stick out my thumb on the side of the lonely highway. I'm now the HITCHHIKER begging for redemption.

Oh, how life has a funny way of smacking you in the face.

Katch Sterling storms into my life, and now I'm in his car.
Broody.
Dark.
All-man
My complete opposite.
Who would've thought my world would come full circle on that lonely highway with a hired killer...
  



I tried I really did. I loved the beginning and then somewhere along the way it just went wrong. The plot is good with murder, mayhem, betrayal, lies and secrets coming to light.

I put it on hold @ 44% and after messaging with Eve I decided to pick it up again. Well people I hit the 75 % mark and I just can't do it. For me it was like watching a bad B movie. I don't mind the Heroes being d$cks but he took it to a whole another level. He claims the heroine takes her back to his place and after making his claim decides it would be a good idea to get a blowjob from his housekeeper and the heroine walks in. Yeah I know there are no promises but still. After silence between them he goes out to finish a job and hooks up with two women somewhat descriptive. I didn't feel a connection between the main characters at all. It just felt like they were f. buddies nothing more and after a couple of weeks of bitching at one another she confesses her dying love to him.

It seems to be that I am the only one who feels like this so it is obviously me and not the book. Read it, don't read it but don't let my review sway you not to read it.
