by Avery Flynn
Series: B-Squad, #2
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 12, 2016
Freelance investigator Isaac Camacho has a weakness for bitchy blondes, and no one fits the bill quite like former beauty queen and gold digger Tamara Post. She’s sexy, feisty and on the run from a cult leader. Complicated women? Oh he loves them almost as much as he loves watching Tamara act like a total ice queen when he knows she burns white hot.
Calculating opportunist Tamara Post never cared what anyone thought about her—except for her sister. But when her sister dies, it’s up to Tamara to hide her teenage niece so the girl’s dictatorial father can’t marry her off to one of his disciples. The last thing Tamara has time for is Isaac—a man who flirts as well as he fills out a pair of worn jeans and whose stubborn determination to help makes it hard to act as if she’s really as cold as she appear.
When the bad guys find her, there’s only one person Tamara can depend on to help keep her alive until her niece is safe. But once the life and death chase is on, it’s not just their lives Tamara and Isaac are risking…but their hearts.
I wasn’t too sure what to expect going into this one since I wasn’t too keen on the heroine from her appearance in the last book, but in the end, this one really worked for me. Throw in that snark and sass that you can always depend on in an Avery Flynn book, and this was an action-filled, fast-paced, fun read with some great characters.
Tamara has some real trust issues, Isaac is plagued by his past and considers himself a lone wolf, together these two should have all sorts of problems…but somehow Avery Flynn manages to create two characters who, as unlikely as it is, fit together perfectly. Not that they didn’t have their share of issues along the way, but from the beginning it was easy to see how Tamara and Isaac were just what the other needed.
And of course when you throw the rest of the B-Squad in to the mix you know you are going to get all sorts of colorful characters to help the story along. I loved getting to know Marko and Elisa better – I can just tell these two are going to be all sorts of trouble together. And seeing the B-Squad pull together to help one of their own – makes me want to be one of the group.
This one can be read as a standalone, but getting to see how these characters have evolved was a treat, so I would recommend starting from the beginning. If you like your romantic suspense fast-paced and action packed, filled with snark, sass, and sexy times, then this one needs to be on your TBR!
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
