“The story flowed and it had an equal amount of love action and suspense.”
~ Under the Covers

Charley, attorney, and federal prosecutor, inadvertently put herself in a dangerous predicament.  Not trained for it, but she now has to work undercover with US Marshal Mason Decker.  The goal, among catching the diamond smugglers, is to catch or break up the notorious Faction Five.  Members of this group are of power and plans to control the system. Working close together, Charley and Mason will learn to trust each other and in the process, exploring feelings they both have.

Charley and Mason are two very intense characters and I’m surprised that they were a good match.  Charley is very strong minded and independent to the core.  Mason, on the other hand, is very alpha and somehow, they didn’t clash.  Actually, they were very sweet and their banter made me laugh.  Of course, Baxter didn’t forget the steam factor.  The sexual tension was high and these two were hot!!!

Mason’s relationship with his brother was both heartwarming and heartbreaking.  I wish there was more of it.  And same goes for Charley and her father. Would’ve been great to see more of their interactions.  

I enjoyed this new addition to the US Marshals series.  I actually like this better than the last .  The story flowed and it had an equal amount of love action and suspense.  Though I thought the suspense was lighter, it was a perfect amount for me.  I’m curious to see where Baxter will take this series.  There are a few secondary characters that I would see get a book of their own.

About Mandy Baxter

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.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
