A quick but enjoyable read with a great blend of romance and suspense. I loved Mac and Eve and they had great chemistry together. My only complaint is the lack of character development due to the short length of the book.
I liked both Eve and Mac and enjoyed their chemistry and their relationship together. It’s obvious how much they care for each other and their long friendship helps support their insta-love. The action was interesting and well paced and there was just the right mix of romance and suspense. Because it was so short, there wasn’t a ton of development or history on the characters. Their romance relies heavily on their shared history as friends.
Journalist Eve Newman stumbles across the murder of a prominent member of her west Texas town and finds herself the target of a shadowy killer. When the body goes missing and the police don’t believe she saw it happen, she turns to the only man in town she can trust; her deceased brother’s best friend.
Former Marine, Macklin Quinn, has been half in love with Eve since they were kids, but he’s always considered her off-limits. When she turns to him for help he can’t send her away. Within twenty-four hours it’s clear she’s in trouble and someone wants her dead. Mac will do everything in his power to keep the feisty journalist alive and help her bring down the killer. And if they can stay alive long enough, he’ll do whatever it takes to convince her they’re meant to be together.
