Colton 911: Target in Jeopardy
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harlequin Romance via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This book just draws you in right from the beginning. Avery Logan is a prosecutor. She is 7 1/2 months pregnant with twins. This is the last day of a her trial before she goes on maternity leave. She glances behind her and there he is, Dallas. Dallas is the father of her unborn babies. She hasn't seen him since their one-night stand. She was unable to let him know about the pregnancy as she didn't know his last name. Dallas glances up and there she is. The woman that he took to bed to rid himself of at least a few hours of grief. His wife was killed 3 months ago to the day that he met Avery at the bar. Ivy and he were in the Army and she was killed by an IED on her last tour. Ivy was his soul-mate. No other woman could ever replace her in his heart.
What follows is a tale that kept me reading late into the night. My poor e-reader was smoking from the murder mysteries of 40 years ago, the current threats to Avery and the undeniable attraction between Dallas and Avery. This was a book that totally shocked me as to who was behind the threats to Avery. I had completely guess the wrong person.
This book is written in a dual POV format. I totally fell for Dallas and his dilemma. He adores his late wife. His grief has totally consumed him. The emotions that he goings through is so heart-wrenching. Avery was a joy to read. She is a bright, beautiful, fun-loving woman. She totally enchanted Dallas.
This is a sexy book with just one scene that was written in such a way that it should not offend anyone. If you love romantic intrigue with a second chance at love along with a slightly sexy scene, then I highly recommend this for you.
