Racing for the finish line has never had higher stakes.
After 25 years in the military, Sam (Mac) McKenzie, decides to plant roots and build his Bluegrass Security business in small town Kentucky. He’s looking forward to an easy pace enjoying his sweet home on Fire Lake. An even sweeter woman would make life perfect.
Bourbon loving Detective Stevie Jorgenson has never been described as sweet, and she’s not looking to settle down, but she’s more than willing for a hot night of fun with the tall drink of water that just walked into her favorite bar.
Mac and Stevie's fling becomes so much more when prize thoroughbreds start dying days before the Kentucky Derby—including her father’s. When the killer shifts focus, they must depend on each other both professionally and personally in the desperate race to discover who is behind the increasingly deadly sabotage.

Finish Line, Bluegrass Security
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a thrilling read. Sam (Mac) McKenzie is co-owner of Bluegrass Security. He and his friends go to a bar to celebrate the success of their business, Bluegrass Security. There he meets Stephanie (Stevie) Jorgenson. She is a detective for the Sheriff's department. The two of them are immediately attracted to each other. In the midst of fighting their feelings for each other, Derby contender horses are coming up sick and dying. Who is poisoning these highly expensive animals? It is a question that Stevie works to figure out.
I adored the dual POV format that this book is written in. Getting into their thoughts really helped to understand their actions (especially near the beginning.)
I haven't read the first book in the series but I will. Levi and Sage seem like a couple that I must read as well. I didn't have to read it first to enjoy this story.
I recommend this book to anyone over the age of 18.
