When his wife was murdered two years ago, Special Agent Levi Lazaro turned his back on everything he cared about. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. Now he’s finally uncovered the identities of those who killed his wife—and he’s ready to destroy them at any cost. He won’t let anything stand in his way—not even a beautiful NSA agent on a mission of her own.

Special Agent Selene Wolfe prides herself on being the best. Her fearlessness and quick-thinking make her the perfect person to take down a deadly terrorist cell. But she needs Levi’s help, and the moment he shows up, Selene knows her objectivity—and her heart—are in trouble.

As the two strike an uneasy alliance, Levi finds himself tormented by his desire for Selene—a feeling he thought long dead. But when their mission takes an unexpected turn, he finds himself at a crossroads. Can he put aside his need for revenge to save the woman who’s reawakened his soul?

 

Shattered Duty is another fast paced romantic suspense novel that keeps you glued to the pages. The action is realistic and pulse pounding, but still allows the characters’ personalities to show through. Levi is a caring person battling a complex range of emotions that evolve throughout the book and you can’t help but like him. I liked Selene too but she had me a little confused on her transformation, thankfully it wasn’t enough to detract from the story. Their attraction was instantaneous and neither tried to fight it but unfortunately the danger kept them from exploring it more. As usual, I loved this Deadly Ops novel and cannot wait for book 4.

At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.

Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again.

I loved the pulse pumping action and danger that was thrown at them throughout the book. I did get confused at times as to why she was still a target, but then I got immersed in the story and it no longer mattered. The romance was hot and sexy and flowed nicely with the story. I would have scored it a 5 but I wasn’t thrilled with the word descriptions at the beginning of the chapters and the insertion of old e-mails seemed disjointed with the story. I look forward to the next Deadly Ops book.

Review: Hot Pursuit: A Sugarland Blue Novel by Jo Davis

Hot Pursuit: A Sugarland Blue Novel by Jo Davis
Publication Date: December 3, 2013
Reviewed By: Reading In Pajamas/ Cori
Rated: 4.5 Stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

In Sugarland, Detective Taylor Kayne is always ready with quick wit and a quicker smile. But he’s about to meet a woman who will make him want to take his sweet time….

Taylor is a laid-back, smart-aleck kind of lawman. He’s also a man’s man, as well as every woman’s private fantasy. But years ago, he was part of a botched hostage situation that ended with him being hailed as a tough-as-nails hero—even though the pain, fear, and shame from that terrible day still haunt his every moment.

Cara Evans couldn’t care less about Taylor’s pain. In the moment he became a so-called hero, she lost someone she dearly loved. Yet neither of them is prepared for the instant, undeniable attraction that flares between them—or the danger that’s soon hot on their heels.

REVIEW:

I always love Jo Davis’s books whether she is writing romantic suspense or writing paranormal romance as J.D. Tyler, she always delivers sizzling romance. Hot Pursuit is the second book in the Sugarland Blue series, which is a spin-off of her Firefighters of Station Five series. I like to read books that are part of a series in the series reading order, but this book can be read as a standalone. I love this new series! Taylor and Cara have a painful past, but there is no denying their instant chemistry when they come face to face. Hot Pursuit took me on an emotional ride that held my interest throughout the book. Taylor and Cara’s story has everything I look for in a great romance book. It has an action packed and suspenseful plot with great characters, as well as the smoking hot romance I love. I highly recommend Hot Pursuit and the Sugarland Blue series for romantic suspense lovers. I can’t wait for the next book to be released.
