Desire is more dangerous than anything in Deep Into Trouble, the next Unbroken Heroes novel from Dawn Ryder.
Saxon Hale lives for the hunt–taking down the bad guys, stopping them dead in their tracks. His latest mission has him in New Orleans, where people go for the party that never ends. But fun is the last thing on Saxon’s mind now that he’s a breath away from closing in on a vicious overlord known only as the Raven. Until an innocent young woman unknowingly enters the very deadly game…
Ginger Boyce is a librarian who’s growing tired of being so buttoned-up on the job, and when she attends a conference in the Big Easy, she decides to taste the wild side of life. But when her dance with darkness becomes lethal, she’s in dire need of protection–and ends up in the embrace of a man who radiates danger and desire. Soon Saxon finds himself Ginger’s shield against an enemy whose power they haven’t yet begun to face. But will he be able to keep his mind on his mission while the very woman under his care drives him beyond distraction?
As an avid watcher of world politics, this story is too on the nose for me, Otherwise, A+ for a really intriguing and engrossing plot! DEEP INTO TROUBLE is filled with action and intrigue, just the way I love it and was so much fun to read even though I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I’ve had this series on my TBR for a while but started with this book and while it wasn’t an issue for me to follow the story, I had lots of questions that I think the previous books will answer, so I’ll recommend starting from the beginning if you really want to enjoy the series.
I don’t do horror anything but imagine watching a horror movie and seeing the blonde (why is it always a blonde?) go down the basement stairs instead of running away, knowing that the end is nigh and yelling into the void? That is exactly how I felt in the opening of this book.
Ginger Boyce is exactly what you expect a librarian to be, at least on the outside. Underneath that buttoned up facade is a fiery bundle of energy chomping at the bit to get out and where else could she be tempted to let down her hair than while on vacation in sultry New Orleans? But Ginger might have bitten off more than she can chew because her walk on the wild side just landed her in the middle of a federal investigation as the eye witness to a crime and the only person who can identify a mob boss who has eluded the authorities for about a decade. Which means Ginger has just become a liability with a hefty price on her head and only one person stands between her and certain death.
Saxon Hale is determined to keep Ginger alive for many reasons and his feelings for her are at the top of that list. But even he has no idea of the power and reach of the enemy they are dealing with and he’ll need his wits, skills and all the help he can get to keep Ginger alive.
I enjoyed Ginger’s sass a lot and like that even though she was scared out of her mind, she didn’t curl up and become helpless, but was invested in her own safety and I also liked that she stood up to Saxon when needed. I guess the previous book will give a better idea of who Saxon really is, but I liked that he was flexible and willing to work with Ginger and that he respected her ability to keep a cool head.
I liked the instant attraction between Ginger and Saxon and imagine that the dangerous circumstances heightened the emotions they were feeling and the time they spent together strengthened their bond and made them an interesting couple, but I found it a bit inappropriate that with the hounds of hell nipping at their heels, they found so much spare time for all that nookie.
Before now, I would have brushed off this amount of political intrigue as hyperbolic but now it seems to be business as usual. If you love political and action thrillers or mysteries, this book and probably the entire series is definitely one you don’t want to miss.
