Adventure, Romance

Gemini Divided by Lauren Kristen Roberts


I recently (maybe sometimes at the end of last year) read another book like this, with a woman compelled to become a hitman. That book started off well but tapered off without much backing for the love story in it. This, however, worked the other way around.
The writing was snappy and drew me into the predicaments that Jen finds herself in. We are quickly informed about how reluctantly she was forced into this role and how it changed her life. She spends a good part of her day winding down by fantasizing about a tv show. Only when her work and fantasy collide is she forced to reevaluate her life.
Her job sets her up to be in the inner circle of the show’s leading man. She is barely there a day when things start to go sideways. Her thought process made sense despite the absurdity of the situation.
It got better once I was more invested in the eventual outcome. In some ways, the ending did tie up in a decent manner.
Since the time window of the entire plot is surprisingly short, there is not much more that I can talk about here. This is not for anyone who does not want a romantic angle in their otherwise action-packed narrative. Since there is a good deal of the action while the romance is the foundation that drives the action.
I received an ARC thanks to Netgalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
