Publisher's Summary

She baited a cop and hooked a killer. She crosses the line… Sonya Savonski has something to prove as the only female drift boat captain fishing the deadly depths of the Bering Sea. She stirs the waters, luring a murderer to the surface, and gets the unwanted attention of an Alaska State Trooper. He tows the line… "Fish cops" don’t mix with fisherman, but if Alaska State Trooper Garrett Hunt can reel Sonya in - before a killer uses her for bait - she could be the catch of his life.

Please authors!

I really wanted to like this story but the h was obstinate to the point of being TSTL several times in the book. Please authors, making the heroine stubborn to the point of stupidity does not make them tough or independent, it just makes them make stupid decisions. She improves towards the end but it is hard to get past how many bad decisions she made just so people would see her as tough.

I got hooked

Quick Summary
Sonya Savonski isn't afraid of taking risks and she's taking some big ones during this year's fishing season in South Naknek, Alaska. Not only is she going to continue with the family's tradition of set netting, she's also going to captain a drift boat and fish out in the open sea. This is her first year heading the family's commercial fishing business, taking the reins from her grandfather. Her decision to use both fishing options is controversial enough but she's also the only woman leading a drift boat crew.

The issues
Alaska State Trooper Garrett Hunt decides to join the Alaska Wildlife Troopers during the season as a chance to get out of town after he lost his opportunity to pursue a relationship with "friend with benefits" Mel Bennett (see my review of Edge). He meets Sonya as soon as he lands and it's an immediate attraction...that's before she learns he's a "fish cop." By then, it's too late as they're both hooked. Things get dicey when Sonya becomes a target and is the victim of numerous incidents of sabotage, some life threatening.

What I enjoyed
As with the previous story, I learned quite a bit about the rudiments and perils of commercial fishing in the Bering Sea as well as the realities of life in this Alaska region. It's fascinating and when you overlay this backdrop with an eclectic cast of characters and exciting action, I was hooked. I had a clue as to who was behind the sabotage but there was a surprise twist that I didn't foresee. And, Sonya has an ex-boyfriend on the scene who wanted to remove the "X." I had a love-hate thing going with Adrian throughout the story. But Sonya and Garrett's romance was always the main focus and theirs was a fiery relationship.

The narration
I enjoyed Mia's narration much more this time as she better handled the suspenseful aspects of the story. She also did a great job distinguishing the characters, adding a unique flair to some of them. Her pacing was perfect.

The bottom line
I really liked the story, setting, action and romance. The balance between the suspense and romance seemed perfect and I never felt either was diminished by the other. The Alaska element continues to be a huge draw for me as this is new territory (pardon the pun) and the fact that I now know the difference between set netting and drift fishing feels good, too. It was exciting and I liked Sonya and Garrett's romance. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

(I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review)

Gave book 2 a try, to my dismay.

The complete lack of common sense from any character in the book was so ridiculous and annoying that it made it nearly impossible for me to finish. I did finish, but only barely.

Great story! Strong female lead!

I really enjoyed this story and like that both the suspense and romance didn't seem forced. Sonya is one tough lady working in a male dominated fishing industry. It was good to see how she was willing to take risks and dealt with all the nay sayers head on! The author does a really great job with context setting, at least I now know the difference between set netting and drift fishing in case it ever comes up in a quiz!

The narration was my least favourite thing - it was a little flat at times and I didn't really like the male voices.

Cómic book story

Had some good writing and character development. The story was not much more than a good comic book story.
