Throwback Thursday Review: Illusions (In the Arms of the Law #1) by Kacey Hammell


I previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  I will be posting these reviews under a new blog post called Throw Back Thursday Reviews, until I have posted them all on this blog. 🙂


Goodreads Summary:

Protection. Adventure. Love.
It’s all found within The Arms of the Law…

Detective Isabella Knowles, a tough-as-nails cop, lives by the law, and knows what she wants out of life. And it doesn’t include marriage or all that comes with it. Everything Isabella has ever known seems like an illusion when a new relationship makes her feel more alive than ever before. She isn’t happy about it and fights it every step of the way.

Burned by his fiancée years ago, seer and P.I., Brady Jacobs never wants another commitment in his life. But his bachelorhood and heart are threatened when he has one of his visions and see a killer striking too close to the woman he has recently come to love.

Danger lurks close to home and neither Brady nor Isabella like that they can’t control every situation…especially matters of the heart.

My Thoughts:

This book was great! I liked it right from the start. I read it in one sitting. It is fast paced and suspenseful. There was some unanswered questions about certain events and characters in the book, and the ending was left open for book 2. I also hope there is some sort of prequel or at least some flashbacks in book 2 that answer some of the questions. The sex scenes were the most detailed thing in the book. I wish everything was more detailed and the characters had more depth, but liked the story nonetheless. The book has a paranormal element that is pretty important to the book (one of the main characters is clairvoyant and helps solve cases), but that is not very elaborated either.
All in all it was a good book, and I recommend to any romance novel lover.
