I was given Fugitive for an honest review by John Day
Carla and Max have just completed another successful mission and are ready to fly off for their next assignment for the Organization only to be ambushed as they were leaving a party.
Now Carla is being held prisoner by her egomaniacal father who wants to use her to hurt Max, only thing in his way is Max in the hospital. In the mean time Carla plans her escape.
Max wakes up from a long nap in a hospital and has no clue how he got there or who he is, just that he is a wanted man and he needs to escape before the authorities get him.
Star is the psychotic bitch with need to fix things and when she finds Max injured, she finds him a place to lay low and recover so she can fix him. Yes I hate her and I hated even more by the end of the book, she was devious and lacked any sense of self recrimination for her bad deeds. I was seriously worried that she would at some point turn on Max and given more time I am sure she would have, especially if he had gotten his memory back and gone looking for Carla.
I was so freaking hoping that Carla would find Max before he did the naughty with psycho Star but alas it was not to be and the steam from the boinking was coming off the pages even if Max was banging the WRONG woman and Carla humped the WRONG guy. I guess I really shouldn't complain because one it made one hell of a good read this time and two the next book will probably be smokin' hot when Carla and Max finally get over their guilt and finally have the always anticipated make-up sex because I am betting it will rock the universe.
My favorite quote went through a bit of revamping from when I Beta read this book but it is still my favorite.
“If you must know, I farted. Your cooking leaves a lot to be desired. If you spent as much time learning to cook as you do wanking, sniffing my panties and watching the porn channel, you’d be master chef of the year. Now bugger off and leave me in peace.”--Carla

Book Blurb Rating
I really like this blurb better than the first one as it is shorter and leaves much to the imagination.

Several hours after her kidnapping, Carla regained consciousness early next morning. She found herself chained by her left ankle to a masonry wall separating the bedroom from the En suite bathroom. She could move from bed to bathroom, but the chain prevented her going further.
When Max came out of the bathroom wearing just a towel, he found Star had cleared away his bed on the floor and there were two pillows on the double bed. So Star’s up for it, he thought. Although horny, deep down he felt guilty at the very idea of making love to her, but couldn’t fathom why.
