What's In a Name? by Terry Odell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book combines a cagey heroine with an off-his-kilter hero. What can Blake do? His usual knockout smile wasn't working on Kelli. No, not when she's busy hacking, changing her identity, and digging the 411 out of him. Sure, he was sent by his boss to check up on her. But once he is incapacitated, she drags him off on a cross-country ride when all he could think about is his head, his aches, and his bladder.
This story is written in Deep 3rd POV, and it dragged me along with Kelli and Blake as they try to stay one step ahead of an unknown killer. Kelli is running from her past, but someone is running after her. But which one of her identities is he after? Kelli is portrayed as independent, smart, and sassy. But it was Blake who I really connected with. He was more honest with his feelings, and although knocked-off-his-game, he opened his heart and remained steady and cool under pressure. I mostly felt sorry for him the way Kelli kicked his feelings around, especially when she returns only to use his Internet connection at the end. Blake deserved a happy ending, and I truly hope Kelli will not change her mind or identity again.
5 stars for POV immersion, fast pace, twists, and a hot steamy romance.
