Special Agent Jack Hamlin is a man who lives by a code. Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity. Three words symbolizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and three words hardwired in Jack’s indelible brain. Jack’s a doer and a risk taker who isn’t afraid to do whatever it takes in the field to bring criminals to justice. That is until his latest assignment brings him face to face with Kate Monroe. One look into her mesmerizing green eyes and Jack has a hard time determining if he’d rather interrogate the beautiful redhead, or take her to bed first.
After Kate Monroe’s silent partner cleans out their business account and disappears in the middle of the night, she’s left to pick up the pieces and fend off the vultures circling her front door, including a baking conglomerate determined to buy Kate’s prized, award winning recipe at all cost. When hunky newcomer Jack Hamlin moves into town, Kate’s life becomes even more complicated by a dimpled grin that sends her heart into overdrive. Jack’s too hot for words, but the timing of his appearance drives Kate’s suspicions that he’s there for more than just putting down roots.
Danger, white hot romance, and stress baking ensue as Kate is swept into Jack’s dangerous world—and Jack's loyalties and training are put to the test when his cover is blown, and Kate’s life is on the line. With Kate caught in the crossfire, it would seem the masterminds are one step ahead of the game. But when push comes to shove, if they think this special agent is down and out, then they don’t know jack.
This was a good book. There is romance, with some crime/mystery, and action (*wiggles eyebrows* both kids LOL). Being a baker it can sure get hot in a kitchen but Kate and Jack sure do know how to turn up the heat to scorching! I absolutely loved that it switched between the characters POVs There are twists that I was like AHHH no way!. You may think you know what is happening but you really don't. The twists were good. I can't wait to get more of this series!
