Despite her job as a wedding planner, Violet Richardson doesn't believe a happy-ever-after is in her future.
And when she's kidnapped by a killer, she's surprised that rescue comes in the form of her tempting yet irritating neighbor Max Baldwin.
Trying to forget his dark past, Max never meant to take on his attractive neighbor's troubles. But now the bickering pair must outrun a thug who's determined to get his hands on mysterious jewels he thinks are in Violet's possession.
And as they race for their lives through Dallas's summer heat, Max and Violet may finally open their eyes to the burning passion they share
Non-stop thrill ride through the book, where every page is filled with danger, action, fear, and high emotions.
This is a book three in the series, and I wouldn't say it is a stand alone book, since the story seems to take off right from where the previous book end (and also ends with sort of a cliffhanger in the epilogue). I hadn't read the other stories, so I felt a bit lost at the beginning, but it didn't take too long to catch up what is going on.
Like said, there's constant action, and it is bloody, dangerous, and fierce. The characters are tough warriors, protective and willing to guard whom they love.
Violet and Max have known each other for a year. Their communication has often been just bickering and arguments, something that seems to have been just a foreplay for their passion for each other, as the sparks are flying and the attractions between them is smoldering. I loved them together, they have a connection, the way they understand each other is special and precious. They calm each other's fears, and center each other's thoughts even in the midst of all the menace and peril.
Absolutely a promising series to look into, I would start from the book one, and proceed from there on. The passion is bold, the love is the forever kind, and the suspense breath taking
