Before Dawn Breaks by Rae Lori


This is an action-packed tale with enough twists to keep your interest. Alex/Camilla is a formidable heroine who also has a gentle side to her. The question is, which one is real? That is what Alex has to find out on this journey. Josh is such a sweet guy, but he's also more than capable of handling the danger that stalks them both. I liked the premise of this book, reminding me of the television shows Alias and La Femme Nikita. It's cool to see an African American heroine in this case. Like Sydney and Nikita, Alex is a heroine you care about but is more than able of taking care of herself and anyone who happens to be her enemy. The love story was sweet and involving. You do want things to work out between Alex and Josh, hoping that they will find each other amongst the chaos of Alex trying to find out who she is and trying to stay alive as her enemies strive to do her in. And Josh is personally involved himself, as his ex-wife is one of the people gunning for Alex. If readers are looking for an action-filled romance that has a sweet love story at heart, they will love this book. I hope to read more from Ms. Lori.

I like your view of this book. If Alex is like Nikita, does that mean the hero is like Michael? The alive Michael, not the dead Michael.

All this story needs is a sexy nerd. A computer geek.

I suppose Josh is like Michael but they end up together. Unfortunately no sexy nerds.

Okay, no Birkoff. That's okay.

You need to write your story with a Berkoff.
