From Amazon Best-Selling Author Martha Sweeney, comes her first romantic suspense novel.
You know how they say the enemy of your enemy is your friend? Well, I'm still determining if there's any truth to that statement.
I was used by the Feds to report on the dealings of Antonio Herrera - the major Mexican crime lord since his uncle passed, leaving everything to Antonio. I knew everything about Antonio's business. How, you ask? I was the only woman he kept close, really close - he claimed he loved me. You get to see and hear a lot of interesting things when you hold that kind of status.
Now, the Feds have me in what they claim is witness protection. However, I never feel safe knowing he's out there. My family thinks I'm dead. All the while, I keep to myself, avoid most people in my new hometown and train rigorously everyday—waiting for the time when the devil comes calling for his debt to be paid.
***This is the first book in a two book series. This book should be read prior to the second book.
Strong female character .. … um absolutely yes and double triple yes – girl is a maniac.
Suspense and drama … it's there
Male who is amazing … uh huh …
Dirtbag husband … for sure
So pretty much this has all the makings of a book I love. This is a really great read. The cover is fantastic. I knew the minute I saw it that I was going to get a story that was one to let you all know to click up. Page one doesn’t disappoint. Goner .. boom and holy moly.
Aiden is a great fit into the plot. Posing as a father and son duo its Paul and Aiden’s job to get close to Laurie for specific reasons. I guess I can tell you that “Leia” is working undercover with the FBI to bring down a sex trafficking ring which her dirtbag husband is involved in. And .. wait .. yup he's a cop. NOT GOOD .. NOPE!
Placed in protective custody Leia becomes is now Laurie and her life is replaced with an entire slew of not taking any crap from anyone. Protecting her family is the first and only thing she cares about.
Gah this is so hard to not tell you about the incidents that are hanging on the pages and not give anything away. There are some excellent secondary characters that I am hoping we find down the road in their own stories. Watch who you trust in this one because everything is not as it seems. There is a cliffhanger for sure leaving you reeling for book 2!
Thank you for the ARC! I can't wait to get my hands on the next release. Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
