Review by pearls
I loved this book!  It was a fast paced thriller with a steamy hot couple.  When Tessa finally takes a vacation to visit her friend in Mexico, she finds herself mistakenly kidnapped by the local cartel.  However, Tessa is anything but a damsel in distress.  She is a fighter and survivor to the end, catching the eye of the second in command Kris.  Their connection had begun the night before at a crowded club and now he has claimed her as his prize.  She is his equal.  From the fight scenes to the car chases to the intensity of their desire for one another, knowing they could be found out and killed at any time, I could not put this book down.  Kris is worth risking it all for though. 

My only negative comment is that, while the book is in English, you are to believe all the time that they are speaking Spanish.  I was fine believing it was in English without the occasional reminder that made me remember I was reading a story. 

Book Synopsis:
Tessa Marshal has fulfilled her long awaited dream of homeownership. She celebrates by taking a vacation with a friend but gets more than she bargained for when her adventure becomes a terrifying ordeal.

Deep cover agent Kristopher "Kris" Harmon has spent years climbing the ranks within the Mexican cartel.  He walks a tight line between vicious drug runners with agendas of their own and working with the cartel leaders he’s trying to organize. Any distraction could prove fatal for him—and for the hundreds of undercover law enforcement officers his own cover protects.

Their worlds collide when Tessa is mistaken for a drug mule and taken captive. As time runs out for both of them, Tessa has to reach beyond her fears and trust a stranger while Kris must choose between his lifelong ambitions and saving Tessa's life. If they want to survive, both must trust that there is more to the other than what meets the eye.
