Drastic Measures

Shiloh Walker rarely disappoints, and Drastic Measures is as delightful as they come. This plot is a reminiscent of Indecent Proposal, but Walker's story follows a steamier and sexier path. Ethan Parker has just a hint of danger to his character to spice up the pages, and Pamela James is simply adorable. Though they don't have a lot of scenes together, Ethan and Pam do have a solid foundation for a relationship. Enough background information is given so that their coming together doesn't appear shallow and arbitrary. The pace is firm and steady, so that it's easy for the reader to become engrossed and engaged in Ethan's passion for Pam.

Walker is tapping into ever woman's fantasy, with Ethan projecting the image of the perfect man. He's dangerous, delicious and absolutely devoted to the sweet and endearing Pam. Their chemistry is smooth and the theme of obsession lends a dark edge to the fantasy. Walker easily keeps the pages turning with her rich writing and additive characters. The attraction between Ethan and Pam is very forceful, and will certainly pull a reader into the abyss of desire. Drastic Measures is a fantastic read; easy to fall in love with and hard to forget.
