She'd never been more confounded about a man than she was about Jesse. One minute she's going to go for it, the next she was holding back because she didn't want to get hurt. And hurt she'd get. She could find herself making the mistake of getting close to Jesse and having her heart broken.
When FBI Agent Kate Ross gets injured in what she believes to be a random drive-by, she becomes the focus of former Agent Jesse Hamilton. The leader of H.I.S. believes she was targeted in an attempt at revenge on him but Kate isn't buying it. But when Jesse receives a note threatening the life of someone close to him after a second attempt on Kate's life, he is convinced she is the target. Try as Kate may to argue, Jessie puts the full force of H.I.S. on her protection detail and sticks to her like glue. Forced into tight quarters under extreme circumstances sends Kate's hormones into overdrive-how much longer can she handle being around the man who pisses her off one second and turns her on the next? He doesn't even try to hide the fact that he wants her in bed, but that's all he can offer and Kate just isn't wired that way.
Jesse Hamilton closed his heart off years ago, after he failed to save his wife from an armed robbery gone tragically wrong. He has carried the guilt of her death around with him refusing to open himself up again, there is no way he could ever survive the pain of losing someone like that again. But the more time he spend around Kate, the more the ice around his heart starts to melt, the more desperate he becomes to protect her. But on mistake, one lapse in judgment, may just cost Kate her life.
“Why her? Why can't you find someone else?”
“I like her, AJ.”
He knew he shouldn't chase her. She was the marrying kind, not the affair kind, and he wasn't getting married again. Yet, he couldn't walk away from her.
Right from the beginning I knew I was in for one helluva ride and I was not disappointed. What I wasn't expecting was the emotions it would pull outta me, or the frustration. So much heartache could have been avoided if these two would have just talked to each other, ya know actually spoke their minds. But I kinda get it, they were scared-it was just incredibly frustrating at times. This was definitely a slow burn romance, the build up was long and intense, but that just made them finally coming together that much more explosive-so freakin hott. However, what really holds you on the edge of your seat, has you furiously turning the pages to see what happens next, was the danger and mystery lurking in every page. The author did an amazing job keeping the killer hidden until the very end; we have no idea who it is until they are literally holding a gun to Kate's head and I can honestly say I did not see it coming. I also loved the huge group of fantastic secondary characters-between all of the Hamilton boys, and girls, and the rest of the rag-tag group of men that work for H.I.S., the banter between them all was hilarious, the love and loyalty clear, and I can only imagine what this series has in store for us next. One thing is for sure, Sheila Kell has solidly landed herself on my One-Click-Addiction List with this group.
