My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fast paced suspense best describes this sequel to Against the Wind. Here we have the sister and brother of the main characters from the first book getting involved at their siblings wedding when a stalker decides to take things a step further against the heroine.
Drew Davenport in the first book was out to put Mia Alvarez brother in prison for a crime he thought he committed. He is an FBI Agent and thought his fellow agent Michael Alvarez was dirty. At the conclusion to that book both Drew and Michael were wounded.
This book pickup at the wedding of Michael and Blair (Drew’s sister). Drew is still recovering from his wounds and having a bit of an emotional crisis about his life. He loves his sister and is glad that she is happy but he wants to get back on the job where he feels the most comfortable. When he first meets Mia he thinks she is stuck up but its not long before he sees how wrong his first impression was.
Mia comes to the wedding with a few secrets she is hiding from her family. She knows if she tells anyone, especially her brother, they will want to get involved and she doesn’t want to ruin her brother’s special day. But when one of those problems makes an appearance at the reception Drew ends up getting involved and quite the spark is ignited between them.
As this isn’t a long novel things are rushed a bit in the romance and action scenes but the author writing style makes it to where this isn’t an issue as reading. The chemistry between Drew and Mia was so hot it was easy to overlook.
