Bring the Heat: A Sugarland Blue Novel by Jo Davis
Publication Date: December 1, 2015
Being on the Sugarland P.D. means never backing down, no matter how intense the case—or how dangerous the attraction…
Captain Austin Rainey knows all too well that being a good cop sometimes means gaining some bad enemies. After his ex-wife is killed, he finds himself on the wrong side of the law, trying to prove he’s innocent of her murder. The last thing he needs is a distraction—especially of the irresistible female kind…
Medical examiner Laura Eden has always found Austin more than a little intriguing, but she’s kept her feelings under wraps. Now she’s determined to do her job and clear his name—but as her investigation brings them into close proximity, she can’t deny the attraction between them—or resist the temptation he presents.
But Laura and Austin soon realize their budding feelings might be more than emotionally perilous. Someone is coming after everyone Austin holds dear—and Laura might be the next one in the line of fire…
Wow! This is an explosive story that had me biting my nails from the start. Laura was the perfect woman to help Austin, a strong man dealing with catastrophic events, struggle through all that life has thrown at him. I loved how the author conveyed Austin’s vulnerability while maintaining his strength. That is a hard edge to balance and it was done beautifully. The officers with Sugarland have such a great relationship and the people around them pull you in so that you feel you’re a part of it all. The bad guy was horribly perfect for this story. He made me cringe and want to “go get him” like the others. If you can’t tell, I loved it.
