Review: Kincaid (Cerberus MC #1) by Marie James

Thursday, August 25
My rating:
3 Stars…

I am Emmalyn Mikaelson.

My husband, in a rage, hit me in front of the wrong person. Diego, or Kincaid to most, beat the hell out of him for it. I left with Diego anyway. Even though he could turn on me just like my husband did, I knew I had a better chance of survival with Diego. That was until I realized Kincaid could hurt me so much worse than my husband ever could. Physical pain pales in comparison to troubles of the heart.

I am Diego “Kincaid” Anderson.

She was a waitress at a bar in a bad situation. I brought her to my clubhouse because I knew her husband would kill her if I didn’t. Now she has my protection and that of the Cerberus MC. I never expected her to become something more to me. I was in more trouble than I’ve ever been in before, and that’s saying a lot considering I served eight years in the Marine Corp with Special Forces.
What I loved:
- Kincaid was a really good guy, the whole way through. He was the kind of hero you'd actually want riding into your life as an actual human being.
- Military men. Yes, thanks.
- This was a quick, easy read, and the MC wasn't the criminal kind. That was a welcome break from my usual, and I enjoyed what the guys did for a living.

What I didn’t love:
- I didn't think Emmalyn brought anything to the story. Apart from being the most beautiful woman in the world and people falling instantly in love with her, what did she have going for her? She wasn't engaging, funny, or smart. She didn't seem to have passions or dreams or skills. She was just a pretty face. I find that boring in any character.
- The drama in the story was driven by Emmalyn's failure to communicate with Kincaid, and her misunderstanding of everything. Emmalyn is Romance Heroine 101: constantly falling for the most blatant ploys, doing nothing but looking pretty, and walking into every character trap.
- Kincaid was constantly apologising, and as far as I could see - he'd done nothing wrong. Like... ever.

There was nothing wrong with the book as such. But nothing about the heroine stood out, so she was boring. A boring heroine and a standout hero still equal no more than an average read, for me.
