Review: Untouchable (Entangled Ignite) by Cindy Skaggs

Book Blurb:

She'll do whatever it takes to find her son - Lie. Cheat. Steal. Seduce...

As the former wife of an infamous crime boss, Sofia Capri is untouchable. She exists outside of the law...and outside of the criminal world. When her son is kidnapped, Sofia's desperate to find him. She'll do anything. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Anything but trust. But it's a strikingly handsome FBI agent who's her only chance to get her baby back...

Something about Sofia's fiery beauty must be hitting all of his weak spots, because suddenly Mr. Law And Order Logan Stone finds himself bending the rules. When they're implicated in the kidnapping, Logan and Sofia discover a horrifying reality - they have less than 72 hours to find the boy and clear their names.

Now the heat is turning up...and time is running out...for everyone.

My Review:

I was very intrigued with the opening of Untouchable, but I felt like after that it took a bit too long for the plot to gain substance.  It took a while to figure out what exactly was going on, who Sofia was, and what the problems she faced were.  This made it a bit difficult for me to feel a connection with her for the first part of the story.  Once things got going though, Cindy really picked up the pace and the suspense of Untouchable.

Against the odds, Sofia and Logan come together.  Soon they are in a race against time to find Sofia's son, and at the same time battling an intense desire for one another.  Both of these characters were strong willed, so it was interesting to follow along with them.  Logan is protective and determined to help Sofia, despite the conflicts he faces.  Sofia is scared, but strong and brave, and does not want Logan's help.  I liked these two but I didn't feel a strong connection to them.

The plot is good, and there is a lot going on. I was interested to see how things would end up, especially for Sofia and her son since her ex-husband is a mobster.

Finishing with a faster pace than it started with, I felt ok with the ending of Untouchable.

3/5 stars
