Taking Fire

Deadly Intent Book 3

"Taking Fire" is a fast paced and exciting installation in the Deadly Intent series. Christie has been on the run from her ex-husband who is a drug cartel boss. Her testimony is the thing that is going to put him in prison for a long time so it's in his best interest to make sure she doesn't make it to the court room.

When Christie goes back to see old friends her ex has a hit done on her and it takes agent Trace to save her and get her away. The rest of the story is the two of them on the run as they try to stay ahead of the hit men.

This was action packed and very entertaining. If you have read the rest of the series you know these two characters and the back story from the previous book, No Mercy. This can be read as a standalone but I think you would enjoy it more if you have read the previous books.

The romance is a slow burn and it very sexy. I liked both of the MC's a lot and I was happy for them when they finally got together.

If you are a fan of romantic suspense stories I not only recommend this book but the previous ones in the series as well.
