After a drunk driver killed Marcus Ricci’s wife while he was deployed in Afghanistan, he closed up emotionally. Working at Lost and Found, Inc., he lands a puzzling case with too many missing pieces. A killer is closing in on the woman Marcus is supposed to protect. Guarding the beautiful Chris is his job—and he’s one of the best—but keeping her close without letting her inside, makes it hard to protect his heart.
A murderer took the only family Chris Holland had left. When her sister’s killer comes after Chris, she turns to the Lost and Found agency for help. As she and Marcus Ricci dig into her background, they’ll discover surprises that shake everything she believes to be true about her past.
Forced together day and night, passion ignites, and Chris falls for Marcus. He’s a loner and not interested in a permanent relationship. When her case is over, he’ll go back to his solitary life. Just a man and his dog.
While the story, No Chance in Hell, is the goriest in the series so far when it comes to the suspense, the romance is the sweetest of them all. When both sides of the story is mixed, it creates a harmonious, smooth, flowing tale.
The villains are evil, hateful, and heinous. The crimes they commit are malicious, and made my stomach turn from the images the author created. The psychological tension that is build, while you wait for the villain's next move, is substantial. I actually had to take brakes from reading to get my head off the story. It will hunt you.
The cast in the Lost and Found Inc series warms my heart with the love, trust, and confidence they have for each other. Marcus is a true alpha, protective and overpowering, but at the same time pure sweetness, loving, caring, attentive, and affectionate. The way he cares for Diablo, just made me melt.
Chris, like all the women in the series, is a tough, enduring, survival.
The romance, attraction, between Marcus and Chris is fresh and potent, palpable. While the images of the crimes the author created were more cruel than before, so is the love story sensuous, steamy, just HOT!
All these factors mixed into this tale, makes it fascinating, one to be remembered, five shiny spoons!!
