Taking Chances (WeHo #15) by Sherryl D. Hancock


⭐⭐★


We’re not quite sure what this one was all about. Despite having romances (yes, in plural), sexy times and police drama, this one was something of a drag.

Kana Sorbinno is a law enforcement officer who finds herself being almost stalked by supermodel, Palani Ryker. Palani is not happy in her marriage and exposure to a fellow model, who is a lesbian, makes her believe that she may be gay. Palani has insta-attraction to Kana and decides to pursue her. There is one scene and one dialogue where Kana says that she refuses to get involved with a married woman before the two get involved in a passionate affair. Things go south when Palani gets pregnant and Kana ends their relationship with a conversation. A few months later, a new member in their team, Cat catches Kana’s eye and they get involved – both issuing disclaimers of no-emotional-attachments. Then there is Cat rescuing Elizabeth, an attention-seeking wild-child, from herself. In dramatic fashion Palani returns in Kana’s life and Cat is heartbroken, but strong. Elizabeth is Cat’s anchor at this point. And things just kind of go on and on.

There is a lot of stress laid on the fact that Kana is a Somoan beauty. We’re not certain why that had to be brought up so often. Some insights into the Samoan culture, though, were nice. We’re not quite convinced about Cat and Elizabeth’s relationship in which Elizabeth is petrified of crossing Cat in any way and fears being dumped. There is too much of power put in Cat and that is just a very uneven relationship. Also, for all Kana’s swagger, the one instance when she is actually in a fight with Palani’s brother, she is so dusted. There are a confusing number of characters with all sorts of inter- and cross- connections amongst them.

Though readable and with some good sexy times (which, along with Palani’s naïve sweetness, gives it its rating), this one is not exciting in the least.
