Firefighter Laine West moved to Killeen, Texas to start a new job and be near her childhood friend Troy ‘Lefty’ Schmidt. As a favor to Lefty, she lets his friend Knox help her get her home settled while he has a week off.
Being estranged with her mother, Tamara for 18 years, Laine is surprised to miss several calls from her in one day. When she decides to return her call, she is not able to get through to her and later finds out her mother has been murdered. What she doesn’t understand is why she as a boatload of the cartel’s drugs or why she was killed by Mexican Cartel and now they are after her.
Now working with the Delta Force teams and the authorities, Knox and Laine have to work fast to stay ahead of the cartel or become victims themselves.
I was given an advanced reader copy and I voluntarily leave this review.
True to his word Knox shows up the next morning, his mind still on trying to find his father. It's been a month since his father disappeared after his mother's murder. Although it's not common knowledge they are certain it was the Cabrera Cartel. His father is DEA, and they are sure he's gone after them. In what capacity they won't know until they locate him. He does his best to push that all aside as he grabbed the treats he brought for Laine. Coffee and pastries are a good way to get to know someone.
Knox manages to get the cable and televisions set up and he cooks up the steaks Laine bought along with grilled vegetables. Once again impressing Laine.
Now they have quite the discussion over dinner, mostly light and fun but then with some dark and dreary.
It's when Lucky shows up with Knox's team lead Cannon that things get a bit crazy. Well more than that they also get dangerous.
Laine's mother is dead and the drugs they find belong to the cartel Knox's dad suspects killed his wife.
I really couldn't put this book down, every page offers up a twist you won't see coming.
