Book Review: The Tracker (The Dregs #1) by Leslie Georgeson
Title: The Tracker (The Dregs #1)
Author: Leslie Georgeson
Stars: 2 1\2
The Tracker is part of a series by Leslie Grorgeson it isn't perfect but it isn't a bad book either. The story feel like it might start to become a little BDSM when he makes her his slave but stay with graphic and simple "steamy romance"
Readers like the concept but many the a little less damaged souls wondering around would have been better. The back story of each characters is thought out and readers of course if you are reading this series will make sure to suspend you belief. Each book reads almost the same with a woman needing their help and each one coming to their rescue.
The books have women who are damsels in distress who fall in love with the damaged souls. Characters dies and unless you are paying attention you might lose count on who is whom. readers will feel the book winding down only to have the author throw you in for a second half of the story. Each book goes though this processes leaving readers find themselves a little bored at times.
Readers will want to yell at the female lead as she "tries to protect those she cares about." when in face she ends up needing to be saved once again.
The story is old and while the author tries to polish it up the series so far falls flat over using the first story.
Thank you to Netgalley and the Author Leslie Georgeson
I’m a trained killer. An expert tracker.
I’ve done despicable things. My soul is damaged. My body impaired. That’s what happens when you are a soldier for The Company. I was discharged a year ago. Now I am a dreg. Worthless. With a bounty on my head. I’ve become a creature of the night, hiding in an underground maze during the day. Because I’m not ready to die yet.
She comes to me one night, needing my help to find her sister. The moment I see her, I want her. Her goodness calls to me, makes me yearn for the impossible. She brings life back to the deadness inside me. I’m no good for her. I will do nothing but corrupt her. But I’m a callous bastard. I can’t resist her.
I try not to care for her, but somehow she slips under my skin. She makes me weak. And there is only one thing in this world I am afraid of. Weakness.
I’ll never be good enough for her, so I have to finish this job and send her on her way.
Before she destroys me.
This is an 8-book series. These books are romantic suspense with sci-fi elements. Each contains a separate romance with an HEA (and no cliffhangers!) However, it is recommended that they be read in order to get the full "dreg" experience. These books contain strong language and adult situations. Recommended for readers ages 18 and up.
