Blurb: Goodreads

She's about to walk on the wild side . . .
While filling the display case in her bakery, the bell over the door sounds and Tessa O'Hara looks up to see the man of her dreams. Within thirty seconds he asks her out for a beer. But after four months of dating, she discovers he's an undercover DEA agent-and he's investigating her possible role in her ex-husband's drug business. For Tess, this means their relationship is over.

Brock disagrees. He's committed to his anti-drug mission, but he's fallen in love with the beautiful woman who's as sweet as her cupcakes-and he'll do anything to win her back. Standing between Tess and Brock are their own exes, one of them a drug lord who's determined to get what he wants. Now as danger threatens, can Brock break the rules he's lived by and let loose his wild side to protect the woman he loves?




BOOK REVIEW:

Alrighty. Another KA book, done and dusted. Gotta say I was a little surprised at how Brock turned out after reading him in Mystery Man and not being overly keen on the lad, then.

Silly me.


Then again, Jake—with his motorcycle boots, his bike, his beat pickup, his old t-shirts that fit way too well, his faded jeans that fit better, his dark brown, longish, unruly hair, his silvery gray eyes that told a million stories without giving away a thing, his capacity to drink beer, down shots, eat hearty, howl at the moon and kiss so hard it was like he knew it was the last moment for every being on earth and he was going to make the most of it—was wild.



Did anybody else notice how long that sentence was?

Eh— who cares. Kristen had me at, ‘motorcycle boots’.  

Loved this installment. Tess was a gorgeous character. One of Kristen’s older characters and I kinda forgot she was in her early 40’s—and for that matter—Brock was older.

These two kids, ( hehehe) could bring the smexy and the alpha and all-the-things-KA.



Once he had me settled, arm still firm around me, he said softly, “I am not a normal guy, Tess.”


Amen to that, sister.

Tess is an adorable character, she works hard and has a big heart. Brock is honest in his ways, his past and where he wants to be heading. He is alpha.

Elvira is such a spunky chick in this installment, I totally dig her.

Daisy and Shirleen, ( I love saying Shirleen out loud) make an appearance.

Some of the Hot-Bunch make an appearance…which is always a good thing.



Now, considering Hank was Lee Nightingale’s brother and Lee was Chavez’s best friend and Brock was working with Hector and Vance, two of Lee’s boys, not to mention he’d moved from the DEA to the DPD and paths were crossing, they’d come to an uneasy détente.



This is all I am gonna give you on them showing up. You gotta read the book to find out how Vance blended into the shadows and then revealed himself when he needed to. He was taking his job very seriously.

Onto my next KA adventure...
