Keshon Gray and Rennie Williams had past history -- and they finally catch up with one another.Keshon Gray is the man of Rennie's unacknowledged dreams.Rennie Williams is the woman Gray still loves. Why had she left him?Seth Greene is Gray's SPEAR partner and is not about to let Rennie interfer with the take down of SIMON, whether she is in danger or not.The story in itself is OK but leaves a lot to be desired in connection with the continuing plot of SPEAR. I will assume that the fault may lie in what little info the co-ordinating editor gives the authors to work with in their stories.I will still maintain that the more educated some people are the dumber they are. It seems that good old fashion common sense goes out the window when the mind is cluttered man induced premises.Would have gotten Los castrated and strung up and TK should have been the one identified as the dead inmate, not just beaten up. Sarita should have taken off when she found out she was pregnant and she suspected Los of gangland activities.Ah well, not the best of the series but readable --M -- Can't say that you miss much with this one except to be introduced to Seth Greene.Now onto #6 - STRANGERS WHEN WE MARRIED by Carla Cassidy and the SPEAR agent Seth Greene and his ex, Meghan with an appearance of East Kirby again.

"Hero at Large" was a great addition to "A Year of Loving Dangerously." Ms. Amos really captivated the compassion that the main characters had for each other. The only drawback was that she didn't really establish more information on the mysterious "Simon" aspect of the story. The dealings happened close to the end. In the others it was introduced sooner. It was still a good read and will be added to my keeper self, but I was kind of disappointed with Rennie's mistrust of Gray. She was a little weak, but I could really see the love that they had for each other. The ending was a nice touch too.

The price of his pretense

SPEAR Agent Keshon Gray had returned to his roots when he was assigned to capture the traitor Simon in Los Angeles. Working as a bouncer for the Ocean Nightclub, he has reunited with some old gang members in order to establish his reputation and eventually lure Simon to him. The plan was going smoothly until he ran into the best part of his past. Rennie Williams had escaped the misery and poverty of her youth. Rising above that as a psychologist at a Health Center in Los Angeles, she helps abused women. A girls' night out brought her to Ocean and Gray whose unexpected presence rekindled memories of old dreams, an old friendship, and an uncanny spiritual connection. Robyn Amos has written a jarring installment through her contribution to the "Year of Loving Dangerously" series. She takes her readers to the darker side of Los Angeles and opens up our eyes, through Rennie and Gray's shared past, to the danger of gangs, their violence, and treachery. Simon is not the only danger Gray must overcome. The arrival of his old gang leader adds another edge to the story and an additional tie to Rennie whose brother, Jacob, was also a part of the gang with Gray. Rennie is a strong and determined heroine. She walked away from Gray once but she recognizes her mistake and she's not about to let him get away now that she's found him. She wants to help him but knows better than to treat him as any ordinary case study. Gray, through the duration of the book, does indeed "spread" himself thin when he finds himself torn between his promises to his old gang members, his conflict with their leader, his concern for Rennie, and his job as an undercover agent. In fact, he is spread so thin throughout the book that it was a bit hard to get a handle on him as a character. He is everywhere at once, trying to save everyone but himself, and this does indeed illustrate him as a stereotypical hero. He almost seems two-dimensional when compared to Rennie whose thoughts we are frequently in tune with but has a lot less to deal with by comparison. This is a good story, which paints an eerily believable picture of the seamier side to Los Angeles living. It has a strong and compassionate heroine and a hero who can truly be admired.
