Undercover DEA agent Erren Rhodes was used to working alone. So the very idea of teaming up with Officer Darby O'Malley to ferret out a killer wasn't exactly how he thought this critical mission would go. But thanks to information only the beautiful cop possessed, finding whoever was responsible for shooting Erren's friend made Darby a valuable--and irresistible--partner. Digging into the case, though, revealed a far-reaching conspiracy...and angered all the wrong people. Now, trying to bring a killer to justice while keeping Darby safe was making Erren remember why he was better off on his own. Especially when Darby made him long to hole up with her in the safe house and never let her out of his sight.
Harlequin Intrigue is probably my least favorite line out of all Harlequin’s imprints. There are, however, some books from Intrigue that I like. This one, unfortunately, is not one of those. I like it, but I think this only rates a three from me.
The plot is interesting, fast-paced, and action-filled. I quite enjoyed the chemistry between the main characters. There’s nothing wrong with how the book was written. I actually commend Angi Morgan for not writing a cheesy romance novel disguised as a cop drama. In fact, the balance between romance and action was great. The reason I’m giving this a three is because even if it was an entertaining read, it wasn’t something that got to me emotionally. Don’t get me wrong, this is still a solid read and probably one of the more exciting books from Intrigue.
