My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I do love the fake relationship trope, with all of the denial and pining and such. Dead Draw delivers the angst that comes with pretending to be in a relationship and more. Though, I do have to admit, I wasn’t completely sold on the reason for Marsh and Levi’s pretend marriage. I did, however, enjoy the chemistry between the two, compounded by the reluctance they each have for getting real feelings involved.
The yearning builds along with the suspense, concluding Dead Draw on a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see how this adventure ends for Marsh and Levi.
