About this ebook

Her kidnappers demanded Shane arrive. Finding out his best friend was held as a pawn just pissed him off. Finding out rescuing her was a test made him seriously angry. He hates being used. These men mean business though, as Shane finds a body count too high for comfort.

Shelly knew Shane would come for her. No way he wouldn’t. She was lucky to have Shane there for her, especially when learning a second woman had been kidnapped and held for over six months. The simple rescue of Shelly turns into something more to find this second woman.

But is there one killer boss out there or two? As the pair try to secure their own freedom, it gets even murkier, until finding a way through is paramount. Otherwise no one gets a happy ending.

Shelly is just freaking hilarious, level headed (well most of the time lol) and awesome, I loved her right from the get go and she is the perfect match for Shane having known each other since forever so they totally get each other. Trying to work out who was behind not only the initial hostage situation that Shelly was in but everything that happens after that is complex and and layered as well as fraught with danger, deaths and double crossing. This has the perfect mix of a friendship which could change to romance and a game of cat n mouse with plenty of action, mystery and bad guys! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

They wanted Shane so they kidnapped his friend Shelly so he would come. They had been friends since kindergarten so it wasn't a surprise Shane would respond. Shelly is feisty and ready to help. She has a history of being a bit of a trouble maker and magnet but also has a tendency of getting out of trouble with ease. A lot of twists and turns, some surprises as well, kept this a lively read. About the time you think you have it figured out--you don't. Great characters, easy to relate to and enjoy. I may have to read this again soon as I read too quickly wanting answers. I'm looking forward to it! The epilogue hints at Diesel heading to China which certainly peaks my interest.

Yay it's Shane's story, I already love this man from the previous book, he's such a sweet man and this time it's his turn to become a hero, to save his best friend and his family and rescue a stranger and defeat bad guys, yup it's complicated and packed with actions with splashes of romance. There were parts that felt rushed and too unbelievable that bothers me a lot, but still enjoyed it nonetheless, especially team work between Shane and Diesel and the sparks between Shane and Shelly and I adore Shelly, she's super feisty and so temperamental, so reckless but very kind and thoughtful person. Great actions, characters, and romance, totally recommended to those who's looking for a light fast-paced suspense romance read.
