Hardcore Volume 1 by Staci Hart

Hardcore: Volume One - Staci Hart

This book was a lot of firsts for me.  I had to go look up the term "parkour" and I'm still not quite sure how to pronounce it.  For others of you that may be in the dark (from dictionary.com) "the sport of moving along a route, typically in a city, trying to getaround or through various obstacles in the quickest and most efficientmanner possible, as by jumping, climbing, or running".  Sounds pretty cool and something that would probably kill my uncoordinated self.  The descriptions of this activity were amazing - you can definitely get a feel for the thrills of parkour by reading this.

Cory is a criminal.  She's a thief, and she's pretty good at it.  Of course she has her good reasons to be doing this, and it gives a bit of a super hero feel at times.  She has her own moral code and when she's asked to break it, she's not quite sure what to do.  Her first meeting with Van is quite the memorable encounter, and I have to admit that he was pretty resourceful in tracking down this elusive girl.

Volume one is just the beginning of the romance, and as a serial we do not see a happily ever after just yet.  The romance is definitely beginning and I am rooting for them to be together - they would just be so cute running along the rooftops holding hands.  We are left with a cliffhanger as Cory is put in a horrible position of having to make a difficult choice.  I can't wait to see what happens next!
