I like Karen Robards; I think she is a very good writer. And I liked "Shiver." It's a highly entertaining book that goes at breakneck speed. The action never stops, and yet the romance that is woven in has time to develop in a believable way. Samantha Jones is single mother to four-year-old Tyler, trying to make ends meet by running a towing company and repossessing cars in the dead of night. One night the car she repossesses has a man in the trunk - alive but badly injured. From this point, Samantha's life becomes inextricably intertwined with that of the man in the trunk - Daniel Panterro, an undercover FBI agent.

My only negative comment about this book is that the dialogue written for four-year-old Tyler isn't quite right. He sounds more like a 10- or 11-year-old boy. At times Robards gets it right, but most of the time Tyler just sounds too old to be four. It's a little distracting but not so bad as to make me knock the book down from 5 stars.

I really enjoyed this book! ( )

Sam (Samantha) is a single mother of a 4 yr. old son, Tyler--living pay check to pay check by being a repo while her next door neighbor keeps her son.

While driving a tow truck though a bad part of town she finds a guy in the trunk of a flashy new BMW (Daniel). She saved his life but she does not trust his motivates. However, Danny is undercover FBI and now he has put Sam and her son in jeopardy.

Sam can take care of herself and a very protective mother and knows how to use a gun! With ruthless killers stalking their trail, Sam has to trust this sexy stranger.

The audio book was not as intense as Hunted (highly recommend); however, as always, Karen Robards knows how to entertain her audience and brings steamy sex and suspense.

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!

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)
