One False Move – Book Review #31

One False Move by Harlan Coben is the 5th book in the Myron Bolitar series. It’s not one of the best I’ve read but I still enjoyed it.

One False Move

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

She’s smart, beautiful, and she doesn’t need a man to look after her. But sports agent Myron Bolitar has come into her life — big time. Now Myron’s next move may be his last.

Brenda Slaughter is no damsel in distress. Myron Bolitar is no bodyguard. But Myron has agreed to protect the bright, strong, beautiful basketball star. And he’s about to find out if he’s man enough to unravel the tragic riddle of her life.

Twenty years before, Brenda’s mother deserted her. And just as Brenda is making it to the top of the women’s pro basketball world, her father disappears too. A big-time New York sports agent with a foundering love life, Myron has a professional interest in Brenda. Then a personal one. But between them isn’t just the difference in their backgrounds or the color of their skin. Between them is a chasm of corruption and lies, a vicious young mafioso on the make, and one secret that some people are dying to keep — and others are killing to protect….

My Thoughts

It’s taken me a week and a half to finish this book. I enjoyed it but it didn’t keep me hooked the way the others did.
I was glad to see more of Win in this book. He’s fast becoming my favourite character and I find myself urging him to hurry up and save the day when Myron is in trouble!

I was shocked and quite sad at the end, though. The ending has made me want to hurry and start the next book to see how Myron is going to get over his grief and get back to his normal self.
This means I’m not taking the break from the series that liked I’d planned!

    I’ve been reading all your reviews of this series and sometimes I think yes they are for me and sometimes not #readwithme

    I need to look out for this series! It must have been good if you’re heading straight for the next book. It’s also nice to read something about professional women’s sport, which often gets overlooked.
