*I received this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review*
Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick have come together to create this action-packed tale of the Sheriff Hunter Steele and his childhood pestie sweetheart, Sam Ryder, as they work together to uncover the dangers that are threatening their small town. While the secrets unfold around them, they must keep their heads in the game and their hands off each other in order to come through this alive. But with years of unspent passion sparking tension, they might just have to mix business with pleasure.
Hands down, this is one of the hottest, badass cowboy romances I’ve ever read. The characters and the plot worked well together to create this amazing action-packed romance that had me on the edge of my seat (with my toes often curled with the heat between the two leading characters). Sheriff Hunter Steele will forever be a book boyfriend in my mind. A protector, a caregiver, and a sexual god, no wonder little Samantha Ryder started crushing at a young age.
While the ending may just be a slight offensive for some ( I’ve never given spoilers and I’m not about to now, so go ask someone else), I was in awe by how my heart raced in that final scene. I may not have been in tears by the time the “I love you”‘s came out, but it was the cutest damn end to this fantastic and wild ride.
Would I Recommend?:
Hell yes! Erotic, romantic, and badass action at every turn, how could I not?
