They can't escape the heat…
Magdalene Deluca isn't the damsel-in-distress type. But if she has to involve a stranger in a dangerous chase through South America, she's glad Finn Kavanagh's the guy she sucked into her problems. Very glad. The man oozes sex and magnetic confidence. And since their connection is steamier than the sultry rain forest, why waste time resisting him?
Finn's peaceful vacation is blown to bits the second Mags strides into view. For years he's ignored his family's pleas to settle down. Now he's falling hard for a blonde force of nature who's allergic to commitment. First he has to keep Mags safe as they search for her missing parents. Then they can determine if it's time to stop running—and take a chance on the wildest thrill he's ever known…
An amazing adventure, mixed with unpredictable, dangerous situations, steamy romance and lots of humor.
Finn and Mags might appear to be total opposites, Mags is a punk girl, who is easily distracted, a little wild side and lots of kindness, and no interest to settle down in a relationship. Finn, the former love-them-and-leave-them type, is finally planning to settle down, he likes to plan, to be organized, and prepared for any situation. But no one could be prepared for the situation they face in South America, while trying to rescue her parents from the drug lord's farm.
When Finn and Mags are not fighting against the drug lord's hit men, or the thugs on the street, they face the dangers of the nature, the rivers and Amazon wilderness.
I love the chemistry they have, they are fun together, the conversations that often end up in banter are entertaining, not to mention the hot attraction ready to explode between them. Mags' issues with her missionary parents were real, and the way she embrace Finn's gigantic family is endearing.
I loved this story, it is engaging, it was hard to put down. The peril Finn and Mags are in, was serious, filled with dangerous moments and constantly present fear. But the jeopardy was perfectly balanced with cultural exploits they run into during their trip, and the adorable romance developing between them. A complete winner in my eyes!
