This is the first in Lemor's Love on the Line trilogy. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
when she first meets christopher shaunessy she's just hoping to avoid trouble with the pool manager of the hotel she crashed. he goes along with her ploy because he wants to see where it will go, because he's attracted to her, but also because he can stop himself from trying to make things right. he's an fbi agent, sent undercover to observe the very crime lord meg is working for. when he figures this out he convinces meg to share information that she is in the perfect position to overhear, given the fact that she is often asked to serve drinks during moreno's exclusive poker games.
chris and meg pretend that they are dating as a cover for their handler/informant relationship. but chris realizes early on that this is a dangerous game that he is playing. he cares about meg, he's attracted to her. he wants to protect her and free her from the terrible situation she's gotten herself in. but this is an investigation that has been building for over three years, there are other characters who have been in deep cover who's identities are at stake if this all goes belly up.
their romance is intertwined with the plot to take down moreno. it's what brings these them together, and yet even in the midst of a high-risk investigation chris and meg find ways to connect beyond the scope of their undercover work. it's one of the things that makes everything so tenuous, there are real feelings between them and those feelings puts them both in danger. when everything blows up, it raises the stakes exponentially because they care about each other. meg isn't an expendable eyewitness, she's someone he wants to protect. she believes in him. and that probably scares him most of all.
one thing i also appreciated was that once meg was out of danger, the author gives both chris and meg some time to heal and figure out if their feelings are real or if they were only intensified because of their forced proximity. we get to see the real meg, the one who isn't running scared for her life and worried about protecting her family from the threat of a dangerous man. and we also get to see who chris is outside of an fbi agent. those glimpses of their real selves made the relationship more real.
**wild card undercover will publish on march 7, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/kensington books (lyrical underground) in exchange for my honest review.
I am so thrilled to read this book by Kari Lemor and must say that she is an amazing author/storyteller. Her words come across as you are in the story and not just with your mind, but your whole heart.
When Meg O'Hara decides to take a week trip to Miami with a bad-boy boyfriend, she never imagined she would be abandoned by the weasel and stranded with a crime boss. Hiding her identity for the safety of her family, Meg becomes Katie and waitresses her way to repaying an impossible debt. Stuck in a roach motel, fighting off sticky hands of customers and unwanted advances of her boss and his gross friends, Meg is way in over her head and too broke to do anything about it.
Sexy Chris Shaunessy, aka Chris Martin, is an FBI agent trying to take down the powerful Salazar Moreno. His hero complex kicks in and in an attempt to keep Meg in a safe environment he offers her protection for her services as an informant. Meg can't refuse the offer due to her dire circumstances and soon is able to freely eat cookies and milk, hang out with the sexy Chris aka muffin and fake a romance that doesn't take much effort in scorching kisses and sweet nicknames.
But- Can Chris keep Meg safe while she is in the hands of men who only see women as play objects, ready to discard them when they don't bend to their every desire? Chris is tormented to make sure this informant stays safe all the while trying to maintain a professional relationship and not give in to his feelings or desires for Meg. Meg knows all the touching, kissing and affection are part of the role of being undercover with Chris, but what if it isn't just that? What if there is something else to it? Is it just her or does Chris feel the same?
Intriguing and dangerous- when it comes to the take down- Kari Lemor kept the pace fast and heart wrenching. Sweet and laced with sexy banter- the entire story was emotional and Chris and Meg were a dynamic couple.
Kari Lemor will be an author on my must read list!
