Review: The Love Trap by Nicole French (Quicksilver #3)

With a well-balanced combination of romance and suspense, Nicole French's third and final novel in her Quicksilver series met all my expectations. The Love Trap is the awaited conclusion to what's turned out to be a well-written and intriguing trilogy, and it was a series that served as my introduction to this particular author's writing. In order to fully understand and enjoy Eric de Vries and Jane Lee Lefferts's story, I'm going to recommend that the books be read according to publication: The Hate Vow, The Kiss Plot, and The Love Trap. This trilogy is a spin-off of French's Spitfire series, but based on personal experience, you can jump ahead to the Quicksilver books without have read the Spitfire ones--Legally Mine, Legally Yours, and Legally Ours--since I have yet to read those and was still able to read these newer books and not feel as if I was lost or couldn't comprehend certain situations.

(A quick note: I may end up mentioning something in this review that could be considered spoiler-y for readers who have yet to peruse the two previous novels.) Eric and Jane de Vries may not have had the most auspicious of beginnings to their love story, what with Jane hating Eric and all, but now, there can be no denying just how much they belong together. Their feelings for and commitment to each other is firm and unwavering, and now they're ready and eager to start their family. However, not everyone wants these two to have their much deserved happy ending. Eric and Jane will need to confront what could be their greatest foe and hope that love prevails in the end.

This had the romance and the suspense as well as a lot of drama and angst, but I don't want you to think that it was an overly heavy read. There are lighter moments, and this does, thankfully, end happily for our main characters. Naturally, it takes a while for them to get there--this is a trilogy, after all--but the author did admirably well weaving a story that intrigues and entertains. Seeing how much Eric and Jane's relationship had evolved over the three books was a treat, especially given the fact that these two had  great deal of chemistry between them. The suspense aspect of the novel was done well, with moments where the level of anticipation rose appropriately. The Quicksilver series in general was a good reading experience, and The Love Trap specifically was 4.5-starred end. ♥
