About this ebook

A savvy businesswoman and an assassin struggle to outwit the FBI -- and each other -- in this #1 NYT bestselling story of sizzling romance and shocking deception from "a masterful storyteller" (USA Today).

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something sparks. Shaw is a man who gives off a dangerous vibe that makes other men stand back and women take notice. No one feels this more strongly than Jordie, a woman who doesn't belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is . . . and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.

As Shaw takes aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. Instead, Shaw has other plans. He abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen. But he isn't the only one: Jordie's brother made a deal with the FBI, but his ruthless boss will stop at nothing to find the money first. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits to stay alive.

Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, Jordie and Shaw play each other against their common enemies. Jordie's only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but he suspects her from the start. Was she in on her brother's scam, or is she an innocent pawn in this deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers -- and for each other -- this unlikely pair ultimately make a desperate move that could be their last.

With nonstop plot twists and the sizzling sexual tension that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's most beloved authors, Sting will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final pages.

​I don't even know how to review this without giving anything away. This is the first book by Sandra Brown that I have read in a long time. I used to have most of her books. There is plenty of suspense, shockers, and sexual tension. I was totally shocked at the ending. Jordie owns a party planning business. Her brother Josh is in protective custody because he turned on his boss Panella. Josh was Panella's accountant and they stole over thirty million dollars from people. Shaw is a hired hitman and has been hired to kill Jordie. But he kills his partner and kidnaps Jordie hoping to get more money for her. He hides her out in an abandoned building. Shaw thinks she knows more about her brother's scam than she has let on. Her brother escapes and Jordie is rescued. But Panella is still out there and wants Jordie dead to punish Josh for turning on him. So now Jordie is in protection, Josh is hiding, and Panella is after them both and anyone who gets in his way. An edge of your seat story. A little slow at the beginning but then you'll be like OMG and WTH is happening. This is one story you do not want to miss. *RECEIVED A COPY FROM NETGALLEY
