"Martin is superb." --RT Book Reviews
A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a private investigator, no one can handle the heat like the men of BOSS, Inc.
Megan O'Brien is at her wit's end. Her three-year-old son has been kidnapped. No police, says the ransom demand. Fearing for her son's life, Meg has no choice but to turn to her former bodyguard, Dirk Reynolds.
Dirk's never forgiven Meg for the way she left him after their brief affair. But with bounty hunter Luke Brodie on his side, Dirk knows he's got to help Meg rescue her son.
The few clues they’ve gathered send them spiraling into a murky world of big banking and international crime. Meg may be way out of her depths, but she’s seeing a side of Dirk she never suspected—one no woman could possibly resist.
Meg jumps straight into a mother’s nightmare when she arrives home and finds that her three year old son is kidnapped. The note that was left instructs her not to contact the police or her son is dead. Meg doesn’t know what to do, but she knows she needs help. The only person she can turn to for help is Dirk Reynolds. Her former bodyguard and lover, Meg doesn’t know if he’ll help her after the way she cut him out of her life, but Meg is desperate and willing to do anything to save her son.
Dirk is shocked when he sees Meg O’Brien walking up his driveway. While he was working for her modeling company, not only did he fall for Meg, he thought the feeling was mutual. Then when the job was over, Meg may as well as surgically cut him out of her life. Dirk was devastated and still bore the scars that Meg left. Yet when standing in front of him begging him to help her find her son, Dirk is powerless to say no. He just promises himself that he will not be drawn back into any feelings that Meg sparks in him.
Dirk and Meg use the resources of the company that Dirk works for, BOSS, Inc. They also turn to her billionaire father, whom they’re both certain is the real target. While Meg has money of her own, it’s her father that has the big bucks. Trying to follow the trail to the kidnappers isn’t as easy as they thought it would be, consider who her father is.
If you want a fast romance suspense, this is it (hence the super short review). Of course there is more to the story but I don’t want to spoil too much. There isn’t too much character building, but I have to believe that was done in the previous book. Usually I don’t jump to the second book, but I don’t like books that have models in them. It’s a thing. Don’t ask me why.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
