Overview

Patience has always been Caleb Whitetail's strength. Quiet and unassuming is what you see with the GFI investigator, but the blood boils hot right under the surface. He kept his distance for years only to see the woman who has held his attention almost lose her life not just once, but twice. He is done standing in the shadows.

Katie Acker, once a tough and athletic security specialist now struggles daily to walk. The closest to family she has are her colleagues at GFI. Especially the man who saved her life and always has her back. So when she unwittingly becomes the focus of a Mexican cartel, it's no big surprise she finds him right by her side.

With the combustive change in their deepening bond, Katie and Caleb do not see the oncoming danger - until it surrounds them.

Meet the Author

Freya Barker craved reading about 'real' people, those who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, hot monkey sex and some thrills and chills in their lives - So she decided to write about them.

Always creative, from an early age on she danced and sang, doodled, created, cooked, baked, quilted and crafted. Her latest creative outlets were influenced by an ever-present love for reading. First through blogging, then cover art and design, and finally writing.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, she packed her two toddlers, and eight suitcases filled with toys to move to Canada. No stranger to new beginnings, she thrives on them.

With the kids grown and out in the world, Freya is at the 'prime' of her life. The body might be a bit ramshackle, but the spirit is high and as adventurous as ever. Something you may see reflected here and there in some of her heroines.... none of who will likely be wilting flowers.

4 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, suspense, kidnapping, murder, and heartbreak.  If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Slim To None (Cedar Tree Series Book 1) Hundred To One (Cedar Tree #2) This is Katie and Caleb’s story. Katie is broken in mind and spirit. Katie was injured when she was protecting Emma and she is still recovering. Will she ever walk again? Caleb has wanted Katie ever since he met her. Can he convince her to give him a chance? Will the danger that is after Caleb affect Katie? Can they work together to solve who is after Caleb and his brother? Will they be able to convince Katie she can still do her job? Will she believe that she is a valuable team member? Can she be with Caleb and still be able to do her job correctly? Or will the danger that is coming for them take away her confidence for good? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.  I recommend this book.

This is the 3rd book in the Cedar Tree Series but can easily be stand alone.  I was really drawn into this book, in fact, I read it in one sitting. Caleb and Katie are partners at work, Katie is severely injured and you see Caleb who has been standing on the side showing how much he cares for Katie.  The way these two interact is awesome! I really loved this book!

Freya Barker is a completely new author to me and I have to say that the main reason I picked up Against Me was because I am meeting her at a signing in a little bit over two short weeks. Well, I have to say that I thank my lucky stars :) The book started a little bit slow for me but once I pushed over the first 30-40 pages, I found myself engrossed into the story and the characters. I loved the smart entanglement between suspense and romance, between danger and love :) Caleb and Katie are quite interesting characters. Being in their late thirties and early forties, they are a little bit older that the characters I usually read about. But that definitely didn't stop me from connecting with them and their problems. Freya Barker managed to express Katie and Caleb's feelings in a way that made me feel like I can see their story through my own eyes. Through the book I admired Katie's strength and determination. It was amazing to read how she slowly becomes herself again and finds the one thing that could heal her wound - love.Considering her past and trials, I can only imagine how difficult it was for her to open her heart, even if it was for her best friend. But his persistence and support, his love and protectiveness, Caleb definitely managed to prove that he deserves her trust and is worth the risk. And let's be honest. That delicious alpha ex-ranger is definitely worth the risk :D The suspenseful part of the story definitely kept me on my toes pretty much all of the time. There were some twists and turns that I didn't expect, and that's not something I experience often ;) I loved the danger and the fast paced action. And that combined with the love story between Caleb and Katie developing in the middle of everything, just made the book that much more exciting :) In a few words, I definitely found the story intriguing and captivating. I quite enjoyed myself reading it and I will be definitely checking this author's other works :) I can't wait to find our more about her characters :) And I definitely can't wait to meet her ;) Lucky me :D This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.

I’ve fallen in love with Freya Barker’s books. Against Me Starts at the end of Slim To None and delves deeper into Katie and Caleb. Caleb has had deep feelings for Katie for some time but knows she loves Gus. The pair are thrown together while working a case and Caleb is able to show her how he feels. The case they’re working has many twists and turns and a special surprise.  She always has me laughing out loud. The next minute I’m knee deep in kick- butt action with strong women and loving men. I love Katie and Caleb together.  I love that two of the women have mobility issues.  Her writing style is real, laid back and very believable. Her characters keep me coming back to read her books. I can’t wait for #4. I was gifted this ebook in return for an honest review.
