Good suspense, great romance, a mystery not completely solved


Sawyer and several of his SEAL buddies are on vacation in Cancun. They are not looking for adventure; they get enough of that with their SEAL duties. Jenna and Carly are in Cancun because Jenna was left at the altar and the honeymoon was nonrefundable. Jenna’s cheating ex said she was boring and he couldn’t see being with her forever. Carly is encouraging Jenna to do things that no one would ever call boring. They meet Sawyer and his friend Quentin waiting in line to ride a zip-line through the jungle. Both Jenna and Sawyer aren’t too happy about doing this and have thoughts of backing out but they go through with it.

Later, at her hotel, Jenna accidentally picks up a suitcase she thinks is her missing one. When she opens the suitcase she is surprised, and somewhat horrified, to find that it contains a weapon and instructions to capture Sawyer, the man she just met.

Although he isn’t staying at her hotel she is able to track him down. What follows is a compelling adventure filled with suspense and intrigue. The chemistry between the h and H is electric but neither of them is looking for anything permanent.

Elle James did a great job leaving red-herrings during this story!

    It’s finally and instantly clear to me. The reason I’ve never felt wholly complete or satisfied is because I haven’t been doing this relationship thing right. Not with Cortez and not even with Rogan. I’m not a top. I’m not a bottom. I was born to be their middleman.

    Growing up in the fast-paced and rough life of a motorcycle club wasn’t easy. Cleaning up the mess his father had made of Vipers Creed meant sacrifice. Cade ‘Spook’ Baker had given up everything to bring the club life back to what it was supposed to be: a family. The choices he made were not what he wanted, but they were necessary for the club as a whole. Second chances rarely came to Spook, so when his Trixie walked boldly into his clubhouse, the decision was made. Trixie would once again be his, this time for good.
