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.
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.
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’ve regretted that night since it happened, but I own it.”
“That hurt me. It hurt me so bad, Tony.”
“I know,” he murmured into her ear, his breath fanning her flesh. “If I could undo everything, I
would never have gone to that party. I was an idiot, Kelly, and it cost me the love of my life.”
Kelly gasped, and it felt as if she might float away if he weren’t holding her. She looked up at him,
her eyes sparkling. Her lips parted slightly. In the heat of the moment, they kissed. Tony wasn’t sure
who initiated, but he was not going to be a damned fool and stop it.
So, a news reporter walks into a bar... and from there starts a thrilling page turner as we follow her into the world of designer drugs, dangerous leads, drug cartels, and we meet an undercover DEA agent who may, or may not be part of this little crime syndicate. Kelly Swinson, our news reporter, is tough as nails, determined, and doesn’t let anything stop her. She knows what she wants and she’s willing to do anything to get it, especially if it includes being an anchorwoman – her dream job. Her ambitious side can somewhat put you off, but she’s a hell of an investigative reporter for putting her life at risk.
I really liked the storyline, although I did wish it was a little longer in order to develop the plot. But, overall, it was still short and sweet. I enjoyed how the author brought suspense into the story and also gave you a sense of apprehension as to who this undercover agent truly was. Anthony Velasquez is undercover in the cartel and can’t reveal his true intentions to Kelly, although his feelings for her haven’t wavered. I love second chance romances; it always makes for a more intense love story. I definitely recommend this book to those who love some suspense in your romance, high end intensity and second chances.
