Review – Quinn, Part II (Undaunted Men #2) by J.C. Cliff

QUINN IS BACK and pushing the limits on it all -- suspense, sex, love, gut-wrenching emotions -- with a fiery intense conclusion to his and Lexi's story. The more Alexis runs, the harder Quinn fights for her.

It's an undeniable truth; bad things happen to good people, and Lexi is not impervious to the realities of the life she left behind.

Keeping Lexi safe at all cost, Quinn remains unwavering in his duties, constantly putting his life on the line, time and time again.

Two tortured souls are pushed to the edges of their sanity and their love will be put to the test. Tempers flare, emotions burst, and love flickers, but after the ultimate explosion, can forgiveness be found amongst the rubble?

Alexis needs Quinn more than ever...and Quinn must decide if Lexi is truly his fate or if their romance was never meant to survive beyond his mission. One thing is for certain: neither Quinn nor Alexis will be the same after surfacing from the mountain trails. Now that they've survived the wild, can they survive each other?

This story picks up exactly where that cliffhanger left us at the end of Quinn, Part I. We are immediately pulled back into the drama and suspense of Quinn and Lexi roughing it in the mountains, buying time until they have to face reality. Now that Lexi is back in the arms of the one person that’s repetitively saved her, she explains why she ran, hoping it’s not too late for her and Quinn to have a future.

Lots of drama happens in the first half of this book that’s not only shocking, but down right crazy. And then…crickets. Sigh. This book was finished at the 52% mark as far as I’m concerned. The last half of this book REALLY dragged on and on and at some point as I was pretty much ready to strangle BOTH main characters for their lack of balls, which apparently they both left on the mountain somewhere. Bottom line, Lexi tries saving Quinn. Quinn believes what he’s told and sees (although I totally understand that part), but doesn’t even try to get an explanation from Lexi as to what happened, even though he’s clearly all choked up over her. Stubborn much?

The timeline in between Lexi being “rescued” and the end of the book flies by so quickly in reading terms, that I’m a little surprised at her “predicament” being so…big. I truly felt like the author was kind of scrambling to find a way to conclude in a HEA, but took way too long in doing so. After being so enthralled with the suspense from the first installment and the first half of this one, I was VERY disappointed with the way things played out once the “drama” was under control.

Now let me get a few things off my chest. I’m a professional reviewer and do NOT believe in reviewing the author, only the body of work I’m reading. In no way, shape or form, was my review based on the recent events surrounding this author. Had the book ended at the half way mark, it probably would have received a higher ranking. But the fact that it was so drawn out and the characters that we grew to appreciate as being honest, strong and caring lacked those exact qualities the second half of this book, has left me with no choice but give Quinn, Part II a 2.5 star rating.
