Back Cover Blurb:

Trouble’s on the run in rural Eider, Iowa, and Deputy Cassy Rivers’s heart is in the line of fire. Two years ago, she barely escaped a harrowing experience at the hands of a maniac—and not without scars. Now a series of random robberies leads to the brutal death of a fellow officer, and she must put her trust in the one man who broke her heart.

FBI agent Boyce Hunt knows commitment isn’t for men with pasts like his. He left Cassy once to protect her from the blackmail and manipulation he faces from his mother’s criminal enterprise. But when they reluctantly partner up to capture the modern Bonnie and Clyde terrorizing McIntire County, their attraction flames to life once more, pulling Boyce between two loyalties.

Will they risk their hearts again, even if it means losing everything?

My Review:

I am thoroughly enjoying this series! Austin has taken the idea of romantic suspense and run with it to create something completely her own. The plot of this tale is intricately woven, creating a whole that kept me on my toes to the end. The modulating pace of the tale highlighted certain aspects while never lagging or racing.

I enjoyed getting back in touch with the characters from the first novel of the series, while also getting to know the new players. The initial antagonism between the main characters was off the charts, as was the chemistry. The backstory was also fantastic.

All in all, this was a great read. I’d recommend it to those who enjoy a good romantic suspense.
