"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The meat of the story is intriguing but lacking with more specifics regarding the Mexican Cartel. Perhaps there will be a volume 2 from their perspective? Just a thought.
Over all the book is a good read, and told mainly in first character so you can feel her pain and confusion when she runs into her first love, as the head of a cartel unit that sells dope called “Rapture”. I don’t want to give away too much of the plot here, but I feel the story being short could have been a bit longer in regards to the criminal aspect of it. Then again I was in law enforcement for 10 years so my opinion could be a bit biased.
Kelly Swinson is an attractive news reporter -- and she's out to use every bit of her looks and smarts to her advantage. With her sights on a promotion at work, she works on a hot story about uncovering the new designer drug called "Rapture." After an anonymous tip, she feels the tail warm. In search of the drug Rapture, she puts herself in dangerous situations. Fortunately, she's every bit as capable as you'd want from your female lead.
Enter Anthony Velasquez, an undercover DEA agent who has loved Kelly from afar for a long time. He's working the same story she is -- only he can't reveal his true reason for being surrounded by the thugs and drug dealers of the Mexican Cartel. But soon the story comes out, and they team up to break the story about this illicit drug that continues to spew overdoes victims. Their relationship become protective and hungry. Larue's writing has you embroiled in the mystery and the romance all at once.
This is definitely a book to pick up and not put down until you've finished!
Kelly Swinson, an investigative journalist, will stop at nothing to become Anchorwoman for Channel 5 news. Even if it means putting her life at risk to uncover the new designer drug, Rapture. The drug responsible for overdosed bodies washing up on the shore of the Rio Grande. Time's a ticking and if Kelly doesn't come up with a solid lead soon, her boss Paul will surely pull her from the story and give it to her nemesis, Cayce.
So when Kelly receives an anonymous text, one phone call at work and an address to meet an informant, she throws caution to the wind. But nothing could prepare her for what she's about to encounter. A sleazy part of town, several dilapidated buildings and a man she hasn't seen in years. The one who broke her heart. Could Tony be the informant?
Larue certainly knows how to weave a tale of deception. 5 gold stars...
I enjoyed this character for her ambition and drive. Kelly is an arch-type, the kind of woman who knows what she wants and goes after it despite some pretty dangerous obstacles. That is until a man steps in and throws a monkey wrench into her plans. Wouldn’t you know it!
Larue writes with a crisp and detailed style that adds tension and depth to this novella bringing a modern day hint of Austen’s Persuasion. Can two people who once loved so deeply…ever be truly happy again after so many years apart? And what about her career?
There’s plenty of fast paced action in this story about drug dealers, chasing the truth and second chances. And while it’s a little predictable there are enough detours along the way to make it satisfying.
Romantic suspense novella about an investigative reporter whose pursuit of a career-making story gives her a second chance at love. The object of her affections is her high school sweetheart, a DEA agent working undercover to take down a Mexican drug cartel.
The story had promise, but was too short to offer as much development of plot and character as I would have liked. Both hero and heroine seemed nice enough, if too naïve, especially considering their occupations. I can’t imagine a real-life undercover DEA agent doing some of the things our hero does. Example: contacting a reporter and arranging to meet her just outside the seedy bar frequented by members of the cartel he’s infiltrated. And while he’s at the bar, undercover, hanging out with said criminals, he’s carrying a business card *on his person* that clearly states his real name and job title. Um, hello?
Then again, this is romance, and I’ll be the first to admit, love does make people do some crazy, stupid things.
