Cade MacKenzie is prepared to give his life to destroy the cartel that killed his lover, but the only way to draw them out is to present them with the perfect bait.
Bayleigh Scott has no idea who her new neighbor is, only that her body is drawn to him in ways she can’t explain, and the danger that surrounds him isn’t the deterrent she knows it should be.
More than fireworks explode between Cade and Bayleigh when she discovers the real reason he relentlessly pursued her, but by then it’s too late, because she’s already been drawn into a deadly game of desire, deception and revenge.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Intense suspense right off the bat which ends in tragedy for undercover DEA agent Cade MacKenzie. When his cover is blown and his girlfriend is killed in front of him he vows vengeance on the cartel leader and to bring down his drug operation which is putting a deadly date rape drug on the streets.
Having not read the previous 5 books in the series I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. All the characters were well fleshed out and the main plot of bringing down the cartel had plenty of suspense and graphic descriptions of the murders of the victims of the drug.
Now one thing I haven’t talked about yet is the romance. I’ve read plenty of alpha men who are dark in the bedroom and usually like that. Difference between those and this being the reason Cade pursued his neighbor Bayleigh Scott knowing the cartel was coming after him was kinda irresponsible and other than their being a strong sexual chemistry between them it didn’t make sense.
That being said I could defiantly see why this series has done so well, all the MacKenzie are hot alpha men who you’d want by your side when trouble hit.
