romantic suspense
I liked how the book sounded when the review pitch came in, but I didn't know how much I would end up loving. I loved the main characters of Kit and Mick. We get to know them pretty well while they hike 2 days out of the North Carolina mountains.

Kit has been in the mountains to try to gain some perspective and direction after her world was turned upside down by her mother embezzling money from the family charity. Mick is dropped out of a blacked out helicopter unconscious. Turns out Mick work for a secret agency and while civilization usually means safety, Kit and Mick possibly in even more danger once they reach the trailhead.

Broken Bits is one of the better romantic thrillers I've read in a while. As I'm more of a thriller reader than a romance reader, I would have liked a little more plot, more focus on what Mick is doing. I could have done without so much sex, especially since I felt that the sex scenes were put in there at the expense of plot.

While the danger made the story more intense it was still a fun romantic story, great for summer escapism reading. I read the book in two days and I'm looking forward to more books in the DAG Team series.
