Jagger: Steele Shadows Investigations, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Secrets, lies, deceit... A former Navy SEAL-turned-homicide detective has met his match in this new stand-alone addition to the number one best-selling Steele Shadows series.
He found her covered in blood. She promises she’s innocent. The question is: Can he trust her?
Feared just as much on the streets as at a crime scene, homicide detective Max Jagger has dedicated his life to one thing: speaking for the dead. Everyone and everything else be damned, including his own demons.
During one of the most oppressive heat waves to hit the small, southern town of Berry Springs, the former Navy SEAL is called to a scene where a real estate heiress is found standing over a dead body, holding the murder weapon. The local cops immediately dub it a slam-dunk case, but if Jagg has learned anything from his days running special ops, it’s that nothing is as it seems...including this suspect.
Despite her name, Sunny Harper is as beguiling as a fallen angel. Mysterious, clever, completely unwilling to cooperate, and, perhaps his least favorite quality - mind-numbingly intoxicating. When evidence from the scene suggests an accomplice, Jagg begins to believe that Sunny is both innocent and in danger, despite the town's uproar to lock her up.
Torn between his growing feelings for his suspect, he takes Sunny to a secluded lake house where he discovers there’s much more behind those enchanting green eyes...including secrets that could take them both under.
With his career on the line and the clock ticking, Jagg must decide if he can trust Sunny...before they both get burned.
Jagger is a stand-alone romantic suspense novel (no cliff-hanger).

Also, I was not expecting the book to revolve around witchcraft and to be so detailed about it. Not a book for me.
There was a lot of great content throughout, hilarious dialogue, secrets, a spooky tree with dolls and some cool K9s. There was so much to this story I did not where it was going to go.
And Sunny Harper, there were layers and layers of Sunny Harper. She is a glass half full girl. So much more to her story, she had a core of strength standing on her own two feet, she decided to not be a victim and to take control of being a new woman going forward.
Awesome insight to the characters, they both had shattered trust issues and how they both evolved throughout the book was very well done. And let’s not forget it was a wonderful romance as well, their build up was realistic and sizzling. Excellent book and highly recommend. A full length stand alone story with a HEA.
I loved the underlying tone of the familial bond all of the men have, and while Jagger isn't a brother by blood, he is a brother regardless. Personally, I'm glad I read the series in order, as it helps to give conseptiual background on characters and overall tones. Was really surprised by the twists and turns in this book, which kept me on my toes. I expected Jagger's story to have a little more heat as he is frequently spoken about in the earlier books- but it was light on that front. Overall, really enjoyed the story.
One criticism is - it's medically not possible to survive on no sleep. 45 minutes in 4 days - no wonder Jagger was missing clues.
