Review: Nailed by Amie Stuart

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via Reading Alley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: March 24, 2015

"Lay Low and Live" is what's kept Bonnie James alive for three years. As resident fix-it girl for a tiny apartment complex in an even tinier Texas town, she makes enough money to pay the bills, but being on the run is lonely. Then Bonnie's latest one-night stand turns out to be the bounty hunter sent to track her down, and more importantly, track down the sister she thought was dead.

Wynn Collier is in big trouble: He's got to find what Bonnie's hiding and deliver it to his latest client—On Time Or Else. Manhandling Bonnie violates his personal code, but Wynn is more than happy to use naughtier, more entertaining, forms of persuasion to get what he wants. Living outside the law comes at a high price for the both of them…but so does settling down.

On the run for over three years, Bonnie James has temporarily settled in a tiny Texas town as the resident fix-it-all girl of a small apartment complex. Making just enough to pay the bills, Bonnie does everything possible to keep a low profile until her latest one night stand turns out to be a bounty hunter sent to track her and her supposedly dead sister down.

Wynn Collier needs to find Bonnie and deliver what she’s hiding to his client by the deadline he was given or else someone will be sent to deal with her permanently. Instead of employing the usual rough handling, Wynn seduces Bonnie over and over again until he suddenly finds himself falling for the very woman who could end up getting him killed.

So for a short erotic story, Nailed was pretty fun. I had no idea what to expect from author Amie Stuart, but a quick, exciting romp wasn’t it. Bonnie is a quick thinker with a sassy attitude. Even with a gun to her head, she doesn’t take crap from anyone. She’s no fool though and that’s what made it more interesting.

Wynn was not what I expected. For a man who came from a questionable family, he was surprisingly hesitant to physically hurt, let alone kill anyone. His snarky attitude covered a very empathetic and somewhat sensitive heart. Still, he had some pretty heated exchanges with Bonnie that alternated between funny and sexy.

Nailed to me felt like one of those “On the Run” kind of movies where there’s a bit of everything: Sex, love, action, danger, mystery and humor but I think because there’s a little of everything, I felt like the overall book didn’t reach its potential in every department. The author stops just short of the mark, making some of the scenes feel incomplete. The rushed ending for Wynn and Bonnie didn’t help either.

Final Verdict: Still, there was enough about Nailed to chuckle about and I didn’t mind this runaround story with kooky characters.
