Excellent, action packed, and exciting!

While single young mom, Samantha Jones, knows that repossessing cars for a living in a bad part of town can be dangerous, she has no idea just how dangerous it can be until she stumbles upon a body in a trunk on her latest assignment.

After being severely beaten, shot and stuffed into the trunk, under cover agent Daniel Panterro realizes his odds of making it out of this operation alive are slim to none. That is until the trunk gets knocked open as the car is hitched onto the tow and he sees a beautiful angel of a girl staring down at him. Before he can react to get her help, she is bashed over the head with a gun and efficiently stuffed into the trunk right behind him. Now in addition to his life being on the line as he pretends to be corrupt agent Rick Marco, an innocent civilian just got caught in the cross fire.

Danny must think of some way to get out of this mess and to save the girl in the process. Little does he know that the petite girl isn't quite as defenseless as she appears.

As if life wasn't tough enough trying to raise a 4 year old on her own, Sam gets sucked into an assassination attempt on a deadly ex-federal agent who turned against both the feds and the drug cartel in an effort to promote his own prosperity. The man she's stuck with in the trunk and then on the run, Marco, is a dangerous, wanted criminal, and way too attractive for his own good. If Sam hopes to make it out of this mess alive, she has no other options than to work with this difficult, deceptive, charming man because her life, and the life of her young son Tyler may just depend on it. What neither plans on is the sparks that fire between the two. Will Sam be able to trust Marco enough to let him protect her or can she manage to grab Tyler and make a run for it? Will Danny be able to complete his mission as Marco without getting the young women he's quickly falling for and her child killed?

An explosive, steamy, and action packed adventure, this novel is impossible to put down! Another amazing story by Karen Robards and a must-read!

Decent read but had a decidedly been there, read that feel to it. Just a little too much like previous stories by Ms. Robards. ( )

My review for Booklist:

Robards’ newest, after The Last Victim (2012), finds tough tow-truck driver and single mom Samantha shocked to discover a badly beaten man in the trunk of the BMW she’s repossessing. FBI agent Daniel Panterro, involved in a complicated sting operation to shut down a vicious drug cartel, realizes that Sam’s intervention has saved his life while endangering hers. He can’t tell her he’s one of the good guys, so even though she rescues him from bleeding to death, he must drag her into the witness-protection sham that serves as his cover. However, Sam won’t leave her four-year-old son. Knowing little Tyler is in danger because the assassins can trace Sam to her home via the information on the tow truck, Danny agrees to take the boy along. When they get to the house, the babysitter is dead and Tyler is hiding under his bed. Slowly Danny realizes their enemies include a mole inside the FBI. Robards pours on the suspense while portraying a compelling couple who complement each other’s strengths.

I am a long time fan of Karen Robards and I think this is one of her best. The main female character Samantha Jones is the likeable spunky( eek did I say that?) single mother trying to make a living and running into danger and doing her best to keep her son safe. No other heroines I am aware of are repo truck drivers and this book was intense and good. Danny makes an interesting good boy bad boy. ( )

Haiku summary

That night, Samantha Jones was doing what she always did: just trying to get by. Left to make her own way on the mean streets of East St. Louis, the pretty twenty-three-year-old single mother supported herself and her son as best she could by repo-ing cars. When she hooked her junker of a tow truck up to the BMW she'd been sent to haul in, the last thing she expected was to find a beaten, bloody man in the trunk--or to be catapulted into a terrifying fight to survive. Danny Pantrero was minutes away from dying when Sam found him. Bleeding badly from a gunshot wound, he'd been snatched from protective custody by a vicious gang of drug runners who would stop at nothing to see him dead. With his life on the line, Danny takes Sam hostage. Forcing her to help him, he tries to make her understand that now she's a target for the killers, too. When they invade her house and threaten her son's life, she finally understands: there's no going back. She and five-year-old Tyler go on the run with Danny in a desperate effort to reach the authorities who have promised him protection before the killers can silence all three of them forever. In the face of harrowing danger, Sam has no choice but to trust Danny with her life--and, more importantly, her son's. Against her will, she starts to fall for the once-menacing stranger, and discovers a depth of passion she never imagined she could feel. But what Sam doesn't know is that Danny has a secret that could destroy them all.… (more)
