The second book in this series, (Risky Shot) ended on a cliff-hanger that annoyed me. How could the author end the book with a line that lets you know that the two lead female characters got shot and you have no idea if they lived or not? Well it was a clever ploy by Kathleen Roberts because the reader is in absolute shock and they just HAVE to buy the next book to find out what happened!
Dead Heat was worth the annoyance. Of course McKenna and Danielle survived, but they can’t let the shooter know that they did or he’ll come back to finish the job. But Page Davis had saw where the shot came from and ran to the back of the building to intercept the shooter as he made his escape. He knows that she seen him and he got a good look at her when she yelled at him. Now they know her life is in danger as well.
Cole Parker is an FBI agent who has been working on the case that involves McKenna and Danielle, and it is his job to protect her—but his heart is also involved with this stubborn, independent woman who has brushed him aside all through the first two books. When she refuses to go to a safe house, he decides to move in with her, posing as her boyfriend as he works along beside her in her business.
Sparks of all kinds fly, including bullets when an assassin tries to take her out in her home, even though he is there.
This was a really great book—and no cliff hanger!
Do yourself a favor—buy the three books in the series immediately, so you can just read and enjoy!
