This one starts fast, with a surprise delivery on the way from the bar to the car, then the execution of a CI before Detective Cavanaugh can get mom and baby in the ambulance. Then, there's a lull. Stick with it. It just has to build a little. Just when you begin to wonder if Ferrarella has lost the magic and has no more truly fab Cavanaughs to drool over, grab a snack a d settle in. It takes off again and doesn't let up until the end that leaves ya alternately sighing, giggling and shaking your head at this pairing. Throw in almost getting caught in a shooting between rival cartels, a bit of mystery, a man as smitten with the mom as he is her infant, a determined, headstrong journalist bent on Denting the cartel that almost took down one of hers with their dope dealing and you have one thrilling tale.

3 1/2 STARS! Unexpected delivery! With a dip into the Top Secret Deliveries series, we get to go along for the ride of yet another sexy Cavanaugh cop as he tries to rid the streets of the bad guys. The story started off exciting, and the characters were an interesting pair, but sadly this was not a favorite for me by this author. I'm sure we'll see another great one next time, but this one fell flat for me with too little plot development. Detective Dugan Cavanaugh is more than happy to assist when he finds a woman about to give birth on the side of the parking lot with no assistance. He manages to calm her down and delivery her baby before getting them on their way to the hospital with a promise of stopping in to check on them. Investigative reporter Toni O'Keefe didn't exactly plan this crazy birth going the way it did, but she's super thankful for Dugan's help. When they finally get a chance to connect again, it's beneficial because she just so happens to have a lot of info on the drug cartel he's trying to bust. Will he be able to use the info she can give him and still keep her and her little family safe?

I do enjoy a good Cavanaugh story, even if they are a bit predictable with how things will move forward, this one delivered few punches and twists as the suspenseful side of the tale unfolded. The fight against the cartel is tedious work with few big busts between the vigorous investigation and gathering of the leads. I liked how the timeframe is spread out to be more realistic and at the same time giving a chance for the romance to develop and the feelings between the protagonists take root. I really enjoyed both of the main characters, Dugan Cavanaugh and Toni O’Keefe had an interesting energy between them. The connection from the roadside delivery to being partners of a sort was not smooth, yet the sparks were flying, the attraction is obvious, and they have the time to let the feelings simmer and grow. I loved how much Dugan cherished the baby Heather, they together provided a couple of heart-melting moments. Toni was a tough journalist who didn't seem to have a sense of fear, making her act even a bit foolhardy at times. But she is a caring, loving mother and friend, and her need to be like her fearless father is understandable, as her history is revealed and we get to know more about her. Dugan is a compassionate, smart, dedicated detective who loves babies and his family. I loved how while being so alpha and protective, he had this relaxed smoothness about him that set him apart. He was obviously comfortable just being himself, a very attractive quality in a person. A good, entertaining, character-driven story with a solid balance of romance and suspense with few surprises and up close battles that turn deadly... ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

"Cavanaugh's Secret Delivery" begins with Detective Dugan Cavanaugh leaving a bar (not drunk) and stumbling upon a woman giving birth in a car with a gun next to her. He helps her through the delivery and then, when the ambulance comes, he is called out to a murder of his confidential informant and must leave. With only her name, Scarlet, which he learns is a fake, he is afraid he will never see her or the baby he delivered again. However, at work 8 weeks later, he finds that he has a new assignment- to allow a reporter, Toni O'Keefe work with him on the drug ring he is trying to take down. Shockingly, Toni is Scarlet- the woman he never thought he would see again. As he allows her to go with him on the case, constantly worrying about her and her baby, feelings begin to develop between the two of them. Overall, it was well written and the story flowed well. The suspense of having the drug lords after Tori was intense and gave the book some extra oomph. However, there's a lot of sexism and misogyny that I personally found gave the book some unnecessary irritations. For instance, all anyone wants to know about her is her attractiveness after Cavanaugh starts working with her- and people are constantly talking about what she should do as a mother (would they do the same for a father?). Additionally, at a family gathering, it's only the women who are taking care of baby Heather (but there are also loads of men there so the distinction seemed unnecessary). While these might be minor points to some people, for me, it made the overall tone much less pleasant, particularly with regards to the relationship. On the other hand, it is fast-paced, flows well, and has some elements of thriller/suspense. The romantic scenes are few and spaced far apart to make way for the main plot and nothing happens until a fade-to-curtain type scene about 80% of the way through. There's good resolution at the end plus some highly intense scenes. I think it's a solid book, but I wish we could have done without the sexism. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.
