About this ebook

Author Connie Mann delivers clean romance with a side of intrigue and suspense the likes of which you've never seen. Florida's untamed wilderness beckons with its beauty and mystery, but this paradise has a dark side that's waiting for you to step off the path...

Former Florida Fish & Wildlife Officer Charlotte "Charlee" Tanner still carries the guilt of a tragic drowning accident that occurred on her watch. She hoped moving back home to central Florida would provide a safe haven—until she learns that her beloved wilderness is full of twisted lies and deadly secrets, including the fact that the death that's haunted her was no accident...and she was the intended target.

Tough and decisive, Lieutenant Hunter Boudreau has just been promoted as a law enforcement officer with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, though not everyone on the force is happy about the change. Despite the friction at work, Charlee is his best friend, so when she comes under fire, he's not letting her out of his sight until the killer is caught. But Hunter has secrets of his own, and Charlee is determined not to let anyone else die for her.

As danger closes in and Charlee and Hunter's attraction threatens to consume them, Charlee has to decide whether she can trust Hunter. And to save Charlee, Hunter will have to trust her, too.

This book is a great beginning to a series that promises to keep the readers on their toes while still having a good supply of romance. The story centers around Charlotte/Charlee Tanner and Hunter Boudreau. Charlee, a former FWC (Florida Flish and Wildlife Conservation) officer, had her life change a year ago after a kayak accident resulted in a drowning. She left her job and is managing her family’s outpost. But her fears are still real, and her trust and confidence is shattered. Hunter, a former Marine, and friend of one of her brothers, is now the acting Lieutenant of FWC. A position one of her brothers thought was his. So there is friction in that department. While accidents and near drownings escalate, so does the attraction between Charlee and Hunter. They both admire each other, but past experiences have them not giving all of their hearts and Charlee also has trust issues. The plot is engaging filled with intrigue, an unknown threat, and whodunit. Meanwhile, the characters are complex and intriguing. For me, the only con in the story, is the cast of characters in the two major incidents that affect the plot. At times I had a hard time figuring out which minor characters belong to which kayak trip and the relationship amongst them. That said, the story was well developed and the action continued till the end. Being a Florida resident for almost 35 years, I felt right at home and really connected to the locations of the story. Can’t wait to see what else the author has in store for us. Definitely another well written story by this talented author. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

BEYOND RISKS Connie Mann..... Florida Wildlife Warriors. Another night she couldn’t sleep and ends up making cupcakes to take to the cafe.A year ago her life changed, from law enforcement,and now to pretend today was like all others. Hunter had come into her life six months ago becoming her best friend. Standing between her and the world, protecting her,and giving her the space to heal. Both trying to live with the regret, and guilt, and. the failure that had happened in their lives. She had a kayak tour to lead today. Brittany dropped her phone and dived into the water. Then a nightmare began, trying to get her out of the water, then a rapid fire of bullets began. Bullets struck, would they survive,only for murder to happened to one of them at the hospital. The threats, are they nightmares or real. This is a fast action script, that keeps one guessing to the.end.. Was it simply a case of revenge from a year ago or more. The cast of characters and the family unity was good, description of them and jobs they held was good The protective feeling for Charlie I liked. I have read the author’s other books and this is another winner .Given ARC by Net Galley and Sourcebooks for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
