Disclaimer: I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely mine.
Rough, tough and by the book, he’s most criminals’ worst nightmare. Until the girl of his dreams is caught on the other side. . .
Emma Ruiz knows her father is innocent. But that doesn’t help her convince the law–not even smoking hot U.S. Marshal Landon McCabe. When McCabe bangs on her door demanding information about how her cancer-stricken father escaped from federal prison, she’ll have to distract him somehow–it may as well be with a stolen kiss.
Landon gets why Emma isn’t saying all she knows. What he doesn’t understand is why he’s putting his reputation, his case, and his badge on the line for a gorgeous person of interest. Much as he’d love to, he can’t let Emma play him. The stakes are higher than either of them can guess. The only way to survive is to trust their instincts. But their instincts want more than one kiss. . .
In ONE KISS MORE, Mandy Baxter skillfully combines sizzling chemistry and nail-biting suspense to create a story that totally captivates. Emma Ruiz and Landon McCabe first met when he arrested her father six years earlier. He’s back again because this time, her father has escaped from federal prison and he thinks Emma is the key to finding her father. Emma knows that her father is innocent and was on the verge of proving that when he disappeared from prison and the last thing she wants is to have the marshals around and in her business.
Emma is a tabloid favorite, portrayed as being a party girl interested only in a good time. The real Emma actually is a nerdy computer geek – smart, loyal protective and loves to relax at home. Landon is a trust fund baby, but walked away from it all to work for the U.S. Marshal service. He’s completely dedicated to his job and Emma is a huge distraction that he cannot afford. Emma and Landon have always been attracted to each other but ignored the attraction by trading barbs and smart comments. Unfortunately, they have to work together to unravel the mystery of her father’s disappearance. Emma finds herself in over her head in the high stakes game, facing off against ruthless criminals and will need all of Landon’s expertise to win.
I enjoy a well-written suspense so I was drawn in from the first page and really enjoyed reading it. ONE KISS MORE is filled with great characters, plot twists, action, really bad guys and lots of sexual tension – all elements of a perfect romantic suspense story.
