Montana Man risks everything for the woman he loves . . .Undercover DEA Special Agent Dawson King spent five months in a Montana prison establishing a fake identity to take down a ruthless drug dealer and put him behind bars. Except there’s a wild card . . . the killer’s beloved daughter. Cara Potter may appear to be on the right side of the law, but King has learned the hard way to trust no one—even someone as tantalizing as the coffee shop owner. She’s irresistible . . . but is she also dangerous? From the moment he enters her life, King makes Cara . . . nervous. The handsome drifter says he wants to get his life together . . . but there is something about him that doesn’t quite ring true. Cara wants to believe in him, yet she holds back despite the way he awakens dormant dreams and leaves her breathless with his sexy smile, steamy kisses, his every touch. When the explosive truth comes out and she’s betrayed by the ones she loves, Cara must decide—can she trust her heart, or should she listen to her head? 
I've got to say, this was one of those instances where you really can't judge a book by its cover. When I first came across this book, I thought I was getting a cookie-cutter romance, where a woman meets a cowboy, throw in some emotional issues, and bam, the love interests work through these obstacles and there's an HEA (happily ever after).

But from the first few pages, it was obvious this was not the case! The tension is evident on every page from the moment Dawson "Flash" King comes onto the page, as he's being released from prison as part of his undercover stint. He's after a criminal who 15 months before eluded him and his team.

Enter Cara Potter. She's the light to his dark but yet is the daughter and niece of criminals. The pressure is on because King is not sure where her loyalties lie. What he does know is that she wears her heart on her sleeves, especially since she has a reputation for taking in criminals who are trying to get their life straight.

The dual point of view helps get you inside the heads of these two magnetic characters. Their romance definitely sizzles and as things heat up between the both of them and King's role as an undercover DEA becomes increasingly more dangerous, I just couldn't get enough! So much so that I'm going to go back and read the first one in the series, now that I've been introduced to "Trigger" - King's tough counterpart whose had a difficult past. In fact, that's what really attracted me to the story - these guys are all broken physically and mentally because of the demands of their jobs but are still good people.

If you haven't read the previous book in the series (like me), you won't be lost. This was my first Jennifer Ryan book and I can't wait to read all of them in the series. Romantic suspense might be a new, favorite genre of mine.

Happy reading Owls!
