He didn't have time to reason with her. And from what he'd seen so far, sweet-talking her was out. "I'm going to remove my hand. If you fight me, I'll tie and gag you. Got it?"
Cold Day in Hell by Jerrie Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Cold Day in Hell by Jerrie Alexander is 2013 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Ana's life is about justice- the vigilante type. She has lived her life vowing to take down the ruthless Manuel Ortega, the man responsible for killing her parents and leaving her disfigured. Just when Ana has infiltrated the Ortega camp, she is taken captive.
Enter Tyrell- "Ty" Castillo. Ana is his contact in Columbia and he must now rescue her and get them safely out of the country. When he finally gets Ana free, he finds she is not ready to leave. She wants revenge and won't take no for an answer. When Ty gets the order to take out Ortega, Ana is not in on the assignment, but she invites herself along anyway. Meanwhile, Oretega is hunting for Ana and the inevitable bloodbath erupts, but when Ana's adoptive parents are dragged into the furor the mission takes on a different dimension. To cap off all that tension, Ana and Ty are having a hard time keeping their relationship in the professional realm. Both are aware that once this mission is over, Ty will go back to the states and Ana will stay in Columbia fighting the good fight for her country. So, will these two remain star crossed lovers or will they realize they must be together no matter what the sacrifices are ?
If you love romantic suspense with non stop action and adventure, not to mention hot steamy romance, this is one you should try out. The Lost and Found unit will make an awesome long running series.
The Columbian jungle makes a challenging backdrop to an already volatile and dangerous situation dealing with drug lords. Ana's obsession with exacting revenge will try out Ty's patience and keep him all tied up in knots. But, she is one determined lady and not even the Lost and Found unit can stop her. I wasn't sure who gave Ty a bigger challenge, Ortega or Ana. Ty is a mix of alpha and beta in personality and it works out perfectly for a person like Ana who will need someone to be strong, but also be able to do a little compromising as well.
Dealing with dangerous drug lords is a never ending battle and so Ana and Ty will have much work ahead of them if they can manage to work out a plan so they can live together without one of them having to give up their mission and goal in life.
Overall this was a tense and steamy thriller sure to satisfy any reader that loves suspense and romance... and who doesn't?
This one is an A.
