Review: Misguided Target by Jessica Page

Publication Date: October 30th, 2014

Rating: 4 stars

Official Blurb: 

After meeting Senator James Clarke and his close friend, madam Dominique Bourdeaux, Kendall Daley starts a new life as an escort known only as Raina. After seven years in the business, she has one final escort event to get through before moving onto the next phase and career of her life. 

Kane Clarke is a thirty-five year old Navy Seals Lieutenant on an encouraged leave, visiting Washington D.C. to meet his estranged brother. 

Their lives connect after a fluke meeting in a bar one night, but neither of them realizes at the time that they share a connection which will change everything. The pair is thrown into a wild ride of mystery and danger, trying to figure out why James has been taken and why Kendall has been targeted. 

Will they figure it out in time? Or will their lives, love and luck run out?

This is the first book I have read by Jessica Page, I really liked it. Although I felt it was a little rushed. We meet Kendall who has had a rough life, growing up in Minnesota with a crappy mother and her ever changing boyfriends. After almost getting attacked, she finally has enough and moved out. After finding work as a waitress and then a high end bar she meets Senator James, who offers a glimpse into the world she could have, if she will only accept.

Starting over in Washington D.C. as an escort name “Raina” she makes her way, and is looking forward to retiring, but during her very last night, something horrible happens and she find herself in a nightmare. She meets Kane, who is a guarded Navy Seal home on leave trying to visit his brother. They both find themselves in life and death situations and have no idea why. Hoping to find clues, and love??

I really like Kendall, she knows what she wants and she goes after it, with her years of being an escort, and under the eye of James she definitely knows how to read people and have insight into their life. Kane, of course is a hot military man, but there is more to him that just training, and protecting, he has seen and done things that no human should have to. James is also another one of my favorite characters, although we don’t see too much of him. I really liked how she had twists, and for a minute I thought I was going to be really mad at the end of this book. I do wonder if there will be more to Kendall and Kane’s story, and also if James will have his own book as well. That would be a good read.
