This is another new to me author and I'm glad I got the chance to review this high octane, fast paced, bullet dodging adventure at its finest! With sharp snappy dialogue, hero with a killer smile and cocky can-do attitude and a heroine with a stronger backbone than she gives herself credit for. Garrison, Texas Ranger extraordinaire, is working undercover as a waiter at a Mafia shindig. He's there to extract some Mafia Wives but before he can get the job done, bullets start flying and his marks end up dead. A Sheer twist of fate prevents there being three dead bodies instead of two. Kenderly (not so keen on the name I must admit) is the hairstylist of said Mafia wives and invited along to the shindig. When she is cleaning up in the bathroom, the killer strikes and almost executes her too but she is saved by a knight in a tux! As they make their way to safety Kenderly learns who Garrison really is and there begins their intense adventure. Something for just about everyone to love: warring Mafia Clans, corrupt cops, handsome heroes and snarky, witty repartee between our hero/ine. Whilst Kenderly is clearly out of her depth she is more than willing to get stuck in and save her handsome hero, even whilst he's doing his best to get her OUT of trouble! I read this in one sitting and am really looking forward to the others in the series!
In this first book of her Texas Rangers: Elite Troop series, Angi Morgan weaves an exciting manhunt involving an undercover Texas Ranger and the only witness he has available to the crimes he’s trying to bring to justice! They fight for their lives and attempt to outrun the hitmen hot on their tail! To say Kenderly Tyler was in the wrong place at the wrong time is putting it mildly! Simply by happenstance, she is the witness to a heinous crime, and only Texas Ranger Garrison Travis is there to protect her. He gets her out of there and tries to keep her safe, but roadblocks keep sending them scurrying in different directions trying to stay out of the hands of the mobsters, and at the same time, trying to find out who’s behind all of the info getting leaked. When attraction is too hard to resist, will these two be able to look forward to a future together when this is all over, or will too many lines have been crossed to allow them that freedom?
At times this novel was frighteningly realistic. Morgan developed the plot in such a manner that it was easy to picture. She used descriptions to her advantage, creating a whole that came to life. The novel itself was well written and intimately crafted. There were a few times where I found that the plot lagged a bit, getting caught up in a back and forth between the main characters that didn’t completely further the story itself. I found the plot really captured my attention when Garrison’s colleagues got involved. The plot thickened and I could finally really see it going somewhere. The characters were engaging. I would have liked to know more about Kenderly’s past. It seems to play a large role in her reactions but I don’t know why. Garrison’s complete trust in his colleagues was refreshing. Together they were a fun filled pair that I quite enjoyed. The back and for the between them overshadowed the overarching plot a few times, but it was interesting. As a whole, this was a fun novel with enough romance and suspense to keep me coming back for more. It was a good introduction into this new series and has left me wondering what will happen next. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
What a hoot this story was! Forget taking this tale seriously, and getting annoyed with 'TSTL' moments, because yes, there are some, but the sooner you accept that it is all just great fun and fantastic entertainment, and not to be taken too seriously, you are going to get a kick out of the tale. To call Kenderly ditsy is taking it too far, but she lives up to every stereotype you might ever have had about a Texan hairdresser, whose salon is called The Best Hair House of Texas. Her spunk, her kind heart, strength, and loyalty are recommendable. She is so out of her element, but she is trying hard, doing all she can, and some of the time succeeding. Garrison, the Texas Ranger, is on his first undercover assignment, and nothing goes as it is suppose to. He is a charmer by heart, his smile makes women swoon, no matter the age, but Kenderly sees right through all the facade, and calls his bull. They are so much fun together, the sparks are flying, the chemistry is off the charts, and somehow, together, they manage to stay alive. The action is non-stop, the corruption goes deep, there's only two people Garrison can trust within the law enforcement, but unable to get in touch with them. And somehow, the killers know where they are, at any given time, but calling 911 doesn't bring the help they expect. It is a captivating story, humorous and thrilling. Towards the end the laughter comes less frequently, and the nail biting starts to take place, as the intensity grows. The ardor between Kenderly and Garrison is precious, maybe because of the constant danger to their lives. Somehow the story reminded me of the old television series Moonlighting, I guess the older readers might know the series I am talking about. Pure, fun, entertainment, with several heart-racing moments to endure ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
