Intrepid by Samantha Jacobey Blog Tour Wraps Up

When past and present collide, how do you escape your fate?

Tori Farrell is finally on the path that leads to a bright future. Raised to be an assassin, she lived in a world consisting of drugs, sex, violence and murder.

Soon enough, the tables are turned, with the realization that the FBI has merely taken to the shadows, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 stars

Tori is moving into uncharted territory – living with her newfound brother, husband and bandmates, while trying to figure out how to navigate the waters of the rock star life. She loves being with the band, but at times it seems as though she longs for the simpler life she and Michael had back in Texas.

Life is starting to settle down when Enrique and Brett show up at her door demanding to be her bodyguards. Michael isn't happy but knows if they came to protect Tori then something major is about to happen.

Tori is torn between her love for Michael and the temptation of Enrique and Brett. Enrique isn't making it easy for her to keep her vows and she's torn between the love in her heart and the desires of her body.

Tori seems to be going through an identity crisis. She's strong one moment and weak willed the next. Michael seems to be placing all of his happiness on Tori's ability to stay strong and love only him. I was impressed by Michael's backbone at the end of the book and I hope see more of it in the next one. Enrique and Brett both have standards in that they want to protect Tori but Enrique is annoying with his over the top pursuit of her.

Looking forward to the last installment of this series.

3.5 stars
The 6th installment in the New Life Series advanced the story of Tori's life, but I think I was expecting more from it. Please know that I absolutely LOVE Tori, but believe this book lacked the action/adventure/etc. of the first 4 books.

Tori has finally made her decision and will no longer live in hiding. She has taken the opportunity her brother has offered, and this book is about the new direction her life is taking.
With Michael "on board" with their new career, the band starts the publicity circuit.
Quickly she realizes what this publicity can potentially mean for her family.
Being the bada$$ that Tori is, she is able to handle this situation and make it positive. Unfortunately, not everything is so easy to fix especially with the Feds and The Organization still looming in her life.

This installment was a lot of "back and forth" between Tori and Michael. Learning what they need and expect of each other, how to advance their relationship, and how to effectively communicate. Not that life is ever easy for these two – especially when temptation is thrown at Tori daily.

This installment has made Tori seem more human – she isn't just a lethal seductress. She is a wife, a self-conscious woman, a musician, a sister, and a real person. There were moments that I absolutely hated Tori: her attitude, her decisions, and her actions. More often than not, I found myself sympathizing with Michael and keeping hope alive that everything will work out in the end.

There is some serious buildup for the final book – and that I can NOT wait to get my hands on!

This is part of a series that absolutely has to be read in order, so if you are just here by chance, go and find book one and get the whole story. You will not be disappointed.

Ms. Jacobey really knows how to keep the reader guessing. Each book has enough plot development to keep one guessing and enough new elements to keep it fresh. I am however delighted to think that things are going to be resolved soon. Michael may be infinitely patient, but I am not! Tori is becoming a more complex character as she tries to live a more normal life, and recognising when she is seriously out of her depth. Her fight to control her behaviour towards men is fascinating.

Even though it's been over many months that this series has been released, the characters made such an impression that is it is easy to fall back into the narrative each time.
