Desire is more dangerous than anything in Deep Into Trouble, the next Unbroken Heroes novel from Dawn Ryder.
Saxon Hale lives for the hunt—taking down the bad guys, stopping them dead in their tracks. His latest mission has him in New Orleans, where people go for the party that never ends. But fun is the last thing on Saxon’s mind now that he’s a breath away from closing in on a vicious overlord known only as the Raven. Until an innocent young woman unknowingly enters the very deadly game…
Ginger Boyce is a librarian who’s growing tired of being so buttoned-up on the job, and when she attends a conference in the Big Easy, she decides to taste the wild side of life. But when her dance with darkness becomes lethal, she’s in dire need of protection—and ends up in the embrace of a man who radiates danger and desire. Soon Saxon finds himself Ginger’s shield against an enemy whose power they haven’t yet begun to face. But will he be able to keep his mind on his mission while the very woman under his care drives him beyond distraction?
Ryder's sexy and provocative third Unbroken Heroes contemporary romantic thriller (after Dare You to Run) proves that no good deed goes unpunished. Librarian Ginger Boyce, in New Orleans for a conference, meets a sweet little girl and offers to bring her a signed book by a favorite author. Meanwhile, special ops alpha male Saxon Hale is trying to hunt down the mysterious crime boss Raven. Their paths cross when Ginger, focused on her mission, unwittingly steps into Raven's lair as he assassinates an underling. Ginger flees, assisted by white knight Saxon, and, the two of them draw close even inexplicably indulging in a quickie wedding in Las Vegas while hit men are nearby. As the danger ratchets up, so does the intense attraction. Ryder's intriguing plot is full of twists and turns, and there's a compelling cast of supporting characters. As Ginger and Saxon's story draws to a close, Ryder skillfully sets the stage for the next title in the series, ending with a bang rather than a whimper.
Completely enjoyed this action packed book! Saxon and Ginger's story is fantastic and while it's the third in the series it easily stands on its own. Undercover operative Saxon is hot on the heels of a crime lord known as "Raven" when he stumbles upon Ginger. Ginger is a good girl in the wrong place at the wrong time but now that she's in danger Saxon knows he has to keep her safe. There's lots of adventure, a bit of humor, and a steamy romance on the pages of this book and I think you will definitely enjoy it. I highly recommend.
So much action!
You really have to have a love of action and suspense to enjoy this book. From the first chapter on, the story took off. There is a lot going on and quite a few characters to keep up with. This is the third in the series, so there is reference to actions taken in previous books.
Despite starting in the middle of the story, I was able to keep up and still enjoy the chase we are lead on when Saxon takes Ginger and runs with his team. They are trying to keep her alive after witnessing a murder committed by a crime boss who is suppose to be dead.
This book ends with little pieces meant to get you ready for the next book in the series. I would recommend reading the books in order. While I enjoyed this book and the main characters, I didn't have enough knowledge of the other characters that could have made this book even more exciting to read if I had their background.
