So I guess it really is me with these books. I didn't LOVE the first one, but I did enjoy it. The sex was pretty hot, but this one fell flat and was way more mystery than romance. I still liked this book, but it wasn't what I was expecting. I thought there'd be more angst based on the description, but the whole Nick and the witness relationship thing was really nothing at all. I chose Cut & Run #2 for my shelf-a-thon challenge, so we'll see how that one goes, but I may have to give up on Cut & Run and Sidewinder if that one doesn't go any better than the rest have.
