Emma Thomas hasn’t been home in years. Only back in Staunton for a few months, she plans to put her investigative reporter skills to use in exposing the trafficking group using her peaceful, idyllic hometown to move drugs. But when she stumbles onto more than drugs, bullets start flying and she has to ask the one person she left Virginia to avoid for help.
Detective Adam Marshall has been working this cartel case for months. On the precipice of breaking the organization wide open, he can’t believe the one woman he’d never been able to get over now holds the key to closing his case. His head warns him to steer clear, but his heart won’t let him walk away when Emma’s life is on the line.
Thrown together by chance after so many years, Adam and Emma work together to break the biggest case of both of their careers and heal some old wounds in the process. Falling in love wasn’t on the docket for either of them, but things don’t always go as planned.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.
- “I’m adorable, actually. My mom says so all the time.”
- Her appearing in his office the way she did had unnerved him. His simple little world had been rattled. And he kind of liked it.
- All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.
- If teen Adam had given her butterflies with his smile, adult Adam had stepped up his game tenfold with his lips.
