For hotel manager Tabitha Martin, bad boys usually spell disaster. And her new guest promises just that, with his formidable build, tattooed biceps, and quiet take-no-mess attitude. Tabitha is already putting everything on the line to escape her vicious drug-dealing ex’s control for good—but a single sizzling moment in “Damien Evans’” arms has her wanting all the trouble he can give…He’s been undercover too long and likes living dangerously too much. U. S. Marshal Parker Evans figures maybe that’s why he doesn’t immediately put Tabitha in custody. Sure, she’s his one chance to finally take down a major drug ring. But every minute he protects this mostly innocent blonde leaves his heart all too vulnerable. And the cost of desire could be a deadly endgame…
Mandy Baxter lives in rural Idaho. She’s a part-time pet wrangler, a full-time sun worshiper, and only goes out into the cold when coerced. She loves black clothes, pink appliances and thinks junk food should be a recognized food group. In the summer, she can be found sitting by the lake, enjoying the view from her dock. She’s the author of the U.S. Marshals series from Kensington Books and the Billionaire’s Club: Texas series from St. Martin’s Press.

I would like to take a moment to thank Kensington Publishing and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
This is a nice action packed story that is fun to sit and read as a break from all the angst that I usually read. Damian/Parker last lost who he is after being in undercover work so long. He knows the second that he meets Tabitha that his double life is about to catch up to him and it will wear on him. She brings out the protective part of him to the surface the part of him that made him want to be a marshal in the first place. It also ties him up in knots since he has to do his job and Tabitha is skirting a thin line between law abiding and aiding and abetting. Tabitha’s intentions are good and pure and she wouldn’t normally help a lowlife like Joey, but if she doesn’t someone she loves dearly is in jeopardy, so what choice does she have. Also the sexual tension that builds between her and Damian/Parker is intense. I do have to say though… Damian/Parker has that sexy tough guy thing going and can totally understand why Tabitha turns into a puddle of goo around him… I would too.
I have this book 4 adventurous kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
