The Most Important Catch by Jaclyn M. Hawkes

by Cindy R. Williams

The back blurb:

Run or die!
She knew too much, and she'd seen too much. And the police refused to help. Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid under head to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.

When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn't know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe from him. Or was she?
His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn't nearly as lethal as his attractions. He kept her safe and protected. All except for her heart.
If you like a good adventure with high stakes including a clean romance, this is your book.

Ever sense I read "The Pelican Brief" by John Grisham, I have toyed with stories where the hero was innocent, but thought guilty, or maybe the hero knew too much so had no choice but to run. It is a fun challenge to figure out how to be prepared --how to hide a stash of cash, clothes, food, scissors and hair dye, a couple of different cell phones and some wasp spray. Wasp spray? Yes wasp spray. You get it at any hardware store. It shoots about 15 feet and burns the eyes. It's better than pepper spray. 

However, the lead character, Kelly, in THE MOST IMPORTANT CATCH, doesn't doesn't do any preparation. She could have put a few things together when she first suspected there was something fishy going on, but she didn't. Instead, when caught looking at a file with too much damaging information, she knows the jig is up and she only has about two hours to get out of town. She takes nothing with her. She shows moments of brilliance when she stages her own kidnapping, blood and all, then takes off on a motorcycle. Fun twist.

The story is intriguing. It is a "lose sleep" fun read. It also has a fun romance, and stays clean.
Writers Mirror recommends THE MOST IMPORTANT CATCH as a good summer read.
