With Good Behavior - Jennifer Lane

In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost. Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer's door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only shatter their fledgling love, but prove deadly to them both. 

My thoughts:
Ugh, I forgot that I was meant to write a review, ok let's make this quick.

Sophie was a shrink to went to prison. A rich girl who was stupid and did nothing wrong. Let people help you!

Grant on the other hand was a navy guy from a mafia family. He also made a mistake..LET PEOPLE HELP YOU! So he also went to prison cos he was an idiot.

They meet, start to see each other and falls in love. But oh oh, Grant's mafia family! Oh oh Sophie's secrets.

Seriously people, if you had had the talk then all those issues would have been worked through. Getting help is not bad. Grant's mafia family were so over the top Italian.

The flashbacks, too many! I grew tired of them. Without them the book would have been half as long.

Conclusion:
But hey, all in all, I enjoyed reading this book.

The cover is certainly eye catching.

Emma said...

Whilst the cover for me isn't as eye catching as I go for. It certainly sounds like a nice romance.

Aye. Friday for me :D

It could pop more

Flashbacks that aren't well integrated drive me nuts.

Carole Rae said...

Gah. I hate when there are too many flashbacks. I like them...but it needs to be balanced; My old show LOST got bad with too many flashbacks near the end there.

Nice cover, but I probably would be annoyed at flashbacks, plus I wouldn't like a male protagonist who goes to jail because he's an idiot! :P

Flashbacks are annoying. Just get to the present timeline already!

Melliane said...

too bas the flashbacks but at last you enjoyed the book.

Hrms. With the bad flashbacks and cover (sorry not for me!) I'm thinking this isn't the one for me. Good it at least was entertaining :)

Your conclusion is priceless!!! :P You should write all your reviews like this - telegraphic is definitely your style. Haven't read this one, but I'm not crazy about the whole let's-put-the-narrative-on-hold-for-yet-another-flashback thing, so... Another awesome review, Linda, to brighten my day :) Keep them coming, you! <3

Anachronist said...

Your short, sweet reviews rock; as a reward there is a little surprise on our blog, right for you ;p.

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Probably not for me. And 400+ pages?

Anonymous said...

It's not for me, I guess, but I'm glad you enjoyed it after all :)

Blodeuedd said...

There were soooo many

Blodeuedd said...

I can take flashbacks, but here they kept coming and coming and coming

Blodeuedd said...

I know that he was scared, but tell the cops

Blodeuedd said...

Sooooo many

Blodeuedd said...

It was still good yes

Blodeuedd said...

It's ok, but would not look at it twice

Blodeuedd said...

Sometimes she put the narrative on hold in the strangest situations. I was all really, you have time to dwell on that right now?

And as always awwwww thanks!

Blodeuedd said...

You are just evil

Blodeuedd said...

Sometimes it felt like the flashbacks were there to make more pages

Blodeuedd said...

;)

BookaholicCat said...

I don't think this book is for me.

Blodeuedd said...

*shrugs*

Teddyree said...

Blodeuedd said...

Not in that area yet, but....
