Started April 06th, 2014.
( Currently in mad rush getting up-to-date with a few series from [a:Allison Brennan|52527|Allison Brennan|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1291263493p2/52527.jpg] )
Hm, again just 4 stars for the ending being again predictable and too much romance. Just over 3 stars, would have given 3.7 stars if possible.
The story is rather brutal, with torture and a high body-count. The romance was ok and felt real, but a bit long and too much, with one or two simple, non-kinky sex-scenes thrown in.
The problem of human trafficking is described with a lot of insight (at least it felt very real to me, wether that is true, I can only guess).
The book takes a clear stance against going rogue and being vigilant and I like that. The thin line between bending rules and breaking them is never crosses and even for the bending there are always good reasons.

Having read quite a few of her books now i see a pattern, but not too bad.
Recommend reading this book, 80% of it is a page-turner, only slowed down by the romance/sex-scenes. ( )

A dark romantic suspense that started out strong and kept on going pulling me in with lots of information on the human trafficking underworld but rather light on the romance between a scarred heroine and compassionate hero. FBI agent Dean jumps in the middle of a case ICE agent Sonia is working.

The story on the whole was good, but it was slow going. There were times almost gave up on the book. In the end I am glad that I didn't give up. ( )

Tough going thru the info dump on trafficking of sexual slaves and indentured servants. When you zero in past that, it’s a good story—tho’ violent. I’ve liked others of hers better, like THE PREY. ( )

Sonia Knight is an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent who is committed to stemming the tide of human trafficking. Her mission is a personal one, since she herself was sold into prostitution at age 13 by her father, a missionary in South America. She escaped her captivity unharmed in Texas and was adopted by a loving American family. When her stakeout of a suspect's home is interupted by an FBI team with a search warrant for financial records, she is furious. However, she soon realizes that their investigations are overlapping and that, by joining forces, they will have a greater chance of success. And of course it doesn't hurt that the FBI team leader is very good-looking and does something strange to her insides.

As predictible as any other popular romantic suspense - but Allison Brennan is one of the best, and this book is better written than most of its type. ( )

Six years ago, a woman I'd never met before came up to me at my first RWA meeting and said, "You're going to sell your book." I thought she was insane. Instead, she was phychic.

This one's for you, Anna Stewart.
