Only the most dire emergency could send paleontologist Regan McKinney racing across the West in search of a man. But her grandfather has mysteriously vanished, and Quinn Younger could be the missing link. What the bad-boy-turned-American-hero is doing in the deserted tumbleweed town of Cisco, Utah, is an even bigger mystery…until danger trails Regan right to his front door and the sexy ex–air force pilot becomes her sole hope of survival.…

Quinn figures things can’t get worse than being stuck in tiny Cisco on an impossible special-ops mission. Then the dinosaur doc’s granddaughter roars into town with bad guys on her tail. Once, Quinn was on the fast track to a life of crime…until Regan’s grandfather rescued him. Now Quinn owes it to them both to find the old guy. But throw in a deadly terrorist and some hot dinosaur bones, and a man could get himself killed. Because facing down danger with this revved-up lady is one endless adrenaline-rush of pleasure—especially when they’re falling crazy in love… and hanging on for dear life.…

Non stop action.

That’s what I liked about this book.

I loved meeting the team, it was like meeting the Troubleshooters again, there’s something about men that are in teams that work in covert operations for the government that I just find utterly sexy. I loved meeting the men in Quinn’s team and even meeting Quinn himself. I find myself drawn to Kid Chronopolous though, I really look forward to reading his book with Nikki. I thought they fell in love rather quickly but hey, whatever rocks your socks Kid. I’m really looking forward to their book and getting to know them better.

Quinn was a great hero, I love these younger years crushes that turn into true love as grown ups. There’s something about these kinds of storylines that totally grab me and make me want to gobble them up, which is what I did with this book. Quinn’s little crush on Regan and his little prank that he did on Regan’s ex husband, I thought that was so cute and just oh so sweet. I kept grinning like a fool while reading the little tid bits that Quinn would share about his crush on Regan and how he wanted to better himself so that he would have a shot with Regan and then to see Regan’s crush on him and just everything made this book just so friggin’ cute.

I loved it.

I thought Regan was a cool heroine, not my favorite or anything but I thought she was cool, the whole Jeanette chaos at the end made me roll my eyes but I didn’t not like Regan because of it, she was cool stuff.

I enjoyed meeting the other characters and reading their little stories that lead into their own books in the future and I’m really looking forward to reading more about these characters. I think Christian Hawkins is a total stud and Dylan Hart too..YUM! Even though he’s average looking, I bet he’s the most intense of all of othe SDF guys…hehe, I’m giddy to read his book. Hmmm, I really want to read more about J.T. and Creed, they make it out alive, right? Oh goodness, I hope so, I haven’t checked out any of the other books to see who’s book is next and what not, I want to be surprised but man am I looking forward to the reading that I’ve got ahead of me with the rest of the books.

So excited, so though this isn’t my favorite book of all or even of this year, I still enjoyed this book a whole lot and this book is totally B worthy! A great read!

Grade: 4 out of 5

  1. I agree with everything you said. I hated the bit with the car at the end, but got over it quickly enough. LOL

    Can’t wait for what you think about the rest of this series. 😛

  2. Lori

    Hell yes! This was my fave of the series, I think. Although everyone loves them some Superman!

  3. I loved this series (except for the last one, Crazy Sweet), the heroes and the heroines were awesome.
    Unfortunately, Crazy Sweet was a DNF for me. But there is another one coming out, or so I hear.

    I’ll fill you in, I started Crazy Cool right after I finished this book yesterday but I forgot the book in my friend’s car last night (I KNOW THE SHOCK!) and so I read LH’s White Lies and now I’m going to start Sandra Brown’s Hawk O’Toole’s Hostage until I get the book back, but really I want to be reading Kell Sabin’s book right now, they didn’t have it at the bookstore that I went to tonight, dammit, I’ll have to check again tomorrow at the other bookstore across town.


    But I’m looking forward to the rest of the series, which one is your favorite book? I know that Dylan Hart is your favorite hero, right?

    Ooh I love me some Kid (I know, just call me R Kelly already sheesh!) I’ll hollar when I finish Superman’s book, though I’m really liking Christian Hawkins right now, YUM!

  5. I don’t know which book is my fave, but it’s not Dylan’s. Although he is my favourite hero. LOL Does that make sense?

  6. Oy that bit at the end totally killed me! Not that I hated the book for it (or even Regan) but man did it get on my nerves! Actually, I think I gave this ending a -1.5 LOL

    But the rest of the story was tight. I really liked it. And you know how I am about cars. *drool*

    You didn’t like Travis’ book? What’s wrong with it? I just bought that book today, now I’m scared…*sigh*


    You always make sense to me, that’s why we’re such great BBB’s! haha…


    Let me check for you…I think it’s ..

    Crazy Hot
    Crazy Cool
    Crazy Wild
    Crazy Kisses
    Crazy Love
    Crazy Sweet

    And I think that’s it for now…


    They sure do have a lot of cars in these books…a lot of muscle stuff, I’m like, oh yeah this is a Holly book! LOL.

  8. I enjoyed most of this series, especially the first two. I’d been waiting with bated breath for Kid’s story and then was kind of disappointed in it when I got there. I’ll be looking to see what you think of it.

  9. I really like this series too! I think my favorite was Superman or Kid’s story.Although I haven’t read the last, Crazy Sweet. Good stuff, look forward to the reviews of the others in the series!

    You should, I really enjoyed the first book and am pleasantly reading the second book, I can’t say for sure if the other books are good but I sure am looking forward to them.


    You’re welcome sweets!


    Kids book isn’t good? I’m most looking forward to him and Nikki’s book. What’s wrong with it? Oh goodness…*sigh*


    Oh okay so you liked Kids story? Alright, I’ll read the book myself and see how I like it. I love Kid already. LOL.
