For Maggie's Sake
Sinful pleasure and forbidden desire rule in #1 bestselling author Lora Leigh's story For Maggie's Sake, previously published in the anthologies Real Men Do It Better and Taken, now exclusively in ebook format.
Maggie Chavez is in protective custody with a member of her former lover's SEAL team. Joe, her ex-lover, thinks Maggie is hiding information from him about a powerful drug lord and the deaths of some SEALs. He intends to seduce her and get the information before she can sell it back to the drug cartel. But the desire crackles between them and their attraction is undeniable. How can Joe use her and leave her, when all he wants is to hold her close and never let go?
This would have been a 5 star for me except I'm a bit confused if there is a book before this one. It starts off as if it's in the middle of a story but I can't seem to find another book that would have preceded this. Despite that, you learn real quick what's going on and like Lora Leigh can do, she pulled me right into the story. What I love about this book is the passion she conveys in her main characters. There is no doubt about the strong pull Joe and Maggie have and you can feel the intensity with each written word. It feels like they are on a hair trigger and will explode at any moment if they can't be with one another.
The race to find evidence against the mafia to clear Maggie's name and put these dangerous men behind bars before they kill her, just adds to the intensity of the story. Even though this started as if in the middle of the story, there is a conclusion at the end and a sweet epilogue. ARC provided by NetGalley.
Short, sexy and suspenseful! This one has a lot packed into a short amount of pages. Maggie Chavez is still being interrogated over things her dead husband was involved in. They are convinced that Maggie knows more then she is giving them. Making things worse, the DEA agent on the case is her ex-lover Joe Merino. Knowing that she could be in danger from the scum her husband was involved with she's put under protection with Joe as her guard. Resisting the blazing chemistry between them will be the hardest thing either has ever tried to do but if she's ever going to get her life back they need to stay focused. Can they do it??
A good story and I would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic short second chance romance!
This is another awesome story written by the amazing Lora Leigh. A second chance romance with plenty of action. If you've ever had a best friend that turned out to be faking your friendship the whole time, you'd know what Joe was going through. Knowing the whole time that supposed best friend had your girl and you didn't know he only wanted her because you did. Great storyline! I highly recommend this sizzling short.
