As the former wife of an infamous crime boss, Sofia Capri is untouchable. She exists outside of the law…and outside of the criminal world. When her son is kidnapped, Sofia's desperate to find him. She'll do anything. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Anything but trust. But it's a strikingly handsome FBI agent who's her only chance to get her baby back…

Something about Sofia's fiery beauty must be hitting all of his weak spots, because suddenly Mr. Law And Order Logan Stone finds himself bending the rules. When they’re implicated in the kidnapping, Logan and Sofia discover a horrifying reality—they have less than 72 hours to find the boy and clear their names.

Now the heat is turning up…and time is running out…for everyone.

Kathie's Review:

This is the author's first book. It's also the first in a series. 

I was drawn right into the suspense when Sofia's son was kidnapped and her house was blown up. The suspense/mystery/thriller aspect of the book were enough to keep me on edge. 

Logan was a great character and I thoroughly enjoyed his "by-the-book" mentality...while he also kept the context in mind. He was going to save that child, no matter what it took. He was strong, sexy, and a really good man.

Again, I was kept reading as the suspense built. My issues were with small things, but they just kept adding up. How old was Eli? He fed Sophia a sucked on cracker...he babbled...he rode with a man on a galloping horse! And then all he could talk about was "horse camp". His age appeared to change with the scene. 

Also, small things weren't shown or told to us. At a pivotal scene, Sofia is commanded to go to a church. How did she get this command? The bad guys didn't have her number, she only had a burner phone! Maybe it was the bat signal. Anyway, there were lots of little things that just didn't add up, and that brought my rating down quite a bit. 

BUT...again, the suspense kept me reading and I can see this author as one that I would read again as she brings out new books. As long as you can suspend disbelief over plot issues, you will enjoy this suspenseful romance. I look forward to more from Ms. Skaggs.

Thank you, Entangled and NetGalley, for the opportunity to read this book
