About the Author
Dee J. Adams was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. After graduating high school, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. For twenty years, she acted in television before transitioning behind the scenes as an acting/dialogue coach for sitcoms. Her experience in show business led her to narrate many of the books in the Adrenaline Highs series (Carina Press) for Audible.com. Dee J. loves writing books filled with action, mystery and love. (Not necessarily in that order.) She is the wife of a wonderful man and mother to a fabulous daughter. She’s a dog lover all the way—due in part to a deathly allergy to cats—with a fondness toward boxers and pit bulls. She is a member of several organizations, including Romance Writers of America and Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.

Lately I have done a lot of reading to fill in time, time some might argue better spent but then that depends on the where and why you are in life and why you need the distraction. I have read a mixture of books that have lacked thought, time and effort and distracted me in a way that was less than satisfactory, or at least I realise this now. I hesitated with the reviews and thought I was being harsh. I wasn't at all. You can't fix things if you don't know what is wrong and it is unfair to writers like this one who do make the effort to give us something worthwhile no matter our individual tastes. This was well-written, had lots of action and gave the time to develop the characters. It was hard not to be involved in the events because you wanted Tanner to make it through. We felt he deserved it and we wanted the same for Jess. There wasn't a connection so much as a real acceptance to the story and what was unfolding as we moved from one event to another. The tension both sexual and human was excellent and hot, really hot. Despite the circumstances it was not inappropriate even with a dead body in the next room. M/s Adams has us so involved that we understand the reactions.
This was quite simply a good read, a very good read.
As it turns out, both Tanner and Jess are looking for and dealing with the same man. As the saying goes, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. After joining forces while on the run, they set out to right an old wrong, and save a dearly loved family from sick-minded, hardened criminals.
You gotta love a writer who can have the hero shoot the heroine in the first scene and somehow still manage to pull off a romance. There are many tender moments in this book as the romance is believably played out. All while Jess is bargaining with a sinister kidnapper, her boss, and on the run with a sexy ex-con who wants to exact revenge no matter what the consequences.
Excellent writing, creative circumstances, and an intense story have the reader turning the pages until sweet justice is finally served.
Not only do I recommend this book, but I definitely recommend the other books by this author.
