In this new series from Heather Graham, Kody has left her job in New York and gone home to help out her family. She's shocked when she is brought into the middle of a crime and kidnapped at gun point. She ends up held by a gang of men in the Everglades. Despite being part of the gang, Kody feels she can trust one of the men. Nick is there as part of an undercover operation and while he doesn't want to see Kody hurt, he also needs to arrest the bad guys.
This was alright but was by far my least favorite of this author's works. The plot was a bit convoluted and didn't seem at all realistic in places. I also didn't buy the connection between the hero and heroine. It was too insta-love for me. I liked Nick as a hero but I was just ok with Kody. Her behavior didn't seem very believable under the circumstances. She made me roll my eyes more than once.
The author tied some historical stuff that I found interesting and I enjoyed that aspect of the book. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to make up for the disjointed plot for the rest of the book.
Overall this was just an average book for me. While I do normally enjoy this author a lot I'm not sure I'll read the next book in this series.
Trust the enemy?
Desperate to escape her kidnappers, Kody Cameron can turn to only one man…and he's holding a gun. Outnumbered and trapped in the deadly Everglades, she has little recourse, but something in this captor's eyes makes her believe she can trust him. Does she dare to take the risk?
Undercover agent Nick Connolly has met Kody before and knows she might very well blow his cover. Though determined to maintain his facade, he can't let Kody die. He won't. And his decision to change his own rules of law and order are about to make all hell break loose.
