Brandy Tate is on the run. She’s fleeing Las Vegas and there are a couple of men who are looking for her. She witnessed a crime that mobster Vinnie “The Voice” Caprese would really not like the authorities to know about which is fine except she’s already told the FBI. The FBI guaranteed her safety and that no one would know her identity but it was leaked to the press, which causes Brandy to flee. What she didn’t expect to do is run out of gas just two hours out of Vegas! Even more shocking though is when she opens the truck of her car to find a large man folded up in it!
Agent Ridge Coltrane just knew Brandy was going to run and decided to go with her without his superior’s knowledge. He just wants to keep Brandy safe. He had a previous witness that was killed while in protective custody and he wasn’t going to let it happen again. Running out of gas miles from anywhere wasn’t on the agenda and they could pretty much guarantee that Caprese’s men were close behind them. While figuring out if walking 40 miles to the next town or waiting for someone to drive by was the best option, a motorcycle pulls over and the rider offers to help.
Trey pulled over wanting to help but is met with Ridge being extra cautious. How do they know that Trey isn’t with Caprese? After a quick pat down at gunpoint by Ridge and a little arousal, Trey takes Brandy on his bike to head for a small community off the beaten path. Ridge starts walking in the correct direction when a car appears.
Ridge and Brandy were right in worrying about Caprese’s men being behind them. Things start to really heat up with a car chase, a bit of fire and a lot sexual desire that is ready to ignite. Brady has to trust someone in this life and death situation but does she dare? Added tension is not need either, so how will these three get rid of it?
This is a quick erotic romp through the desert with a lot of danger around every curve. I found the sexual scenes extremely well done. They not only titillate the characters but the reader as well. Not much is off limits as Ridge, Trey and Brandy figure out how to keep everyone alive as they explore each other.
This story has two stories going on at once. The most obvious is Brandy running from Caprese and the FBIs involvement in prosecuting him. The other is concerning Trey and his mission of bringing together couples. I did not realize that Trey had his own story going on until I was finished with the book. Apparently this is one story in a series of stories revolving around Trey and his mission.
There is not a lot of depth to this story. Most of the “action” is sexual in nature with over half the book being part of one sex scene or another. The rest is brief scenes to hold the basic story together. Brandy is the most developed character and she gives a bit of why she isn’t too thrilled with the FBI but little concerning her current life or how she lives.
I found the sex stimulating but the story part lacking. Overall, it wasn't a bad little story and if you're wanting hot sex with hotter guys, this might be your book.
