She'll do anything to find her sister...
Deep undercover with a Tijuana drug cartel, FBI agent Sophia Diaz is two days away from making the biggest bust of her career...and tracking down her sister who went missing ten years ago. But when a rival cartel puts out a hit on her, there's only one man who can keep her alive.
He'll do anything to keep her safe...
Immigration enforcement officer, Nelson Cruz, has his hands full with his own operation while undercover as a member of the Savages motorcycle gang. When orders come down that he has to protect the sexy, but oh-so-aloof, Agent Diaz without breaking his cover, Nelson must put his skills to the ultimate test. Especially since a previous relationship with Sophie compromised his career and wreaked havoc on his heart.
South of the border is no place to die...
Nelson's never gotten over the time he spent in Sophie's bed or the fact she double-crossed him on their last mission together. He can't trust her...and she doesn't trust anybody. As the two fight their red-hot, south of the border attraction, Nelson discovers a secret that could destroy Sophie's world forever. Once again, he's forced to put his job--and his life--on the line for her. Can he keep her alive and out of prison? Or will their careers, as well as their hearts, go up in the flames of desire?

J: And we're off to a very slow start so far. This is not typical of this author. It seems like a lot of repetitive conversation and thoughts. It had better pick up soon or I will have to start skipping forward to try to find where all of the action and suspense.
4 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, murder, suspense, betrayal, pain, secrets, lies, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Deadly Pursuit (Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce, #1) Deadly Deception (Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce, #2) Deadly Force (Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce, #3) This is Sophia and Nelson’s story. Sophia likes to work alone. She has been on the case for months when Nelson is sent in to pull her out. No way is she pulling out when she is so close to closing the case. She needs the clues from this case to find her sister. Nelson and Sophia have a shared past where she betrayed him in the past so no matter what he is going to stick close. Can Nelson stick close but keep out of Sophia’s bed so he can help solve the case? How far will Sophia go in her risks of the case? Will all the lies Sophia tells come back to harm them both in the end? Will she ever find out the information that will help her find her sister? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.
Deadly Intent is thrilling, fast passed, terrifying, and awesome. Sophia has been undercover with a Mexican cartel for nine months and her work is almost done when her boss sends in an agent to pull her out. Not only does she want to complete the assignment and make the arrest herself, but she has another reason for being there. This is the cartel that she believes kidnapped her younger sister years ago and it may be her only clue to her sister’s whereabouts. No way is she leaving until she has the information she needs. It doesn’t help that the man they send is one who lives in her dreams. I do have one warning for those who have an extreme fear of snakes; the cartel leader keeps python’s and anacondas. Even snakes on the page and behind glass pushes my fear factor a little closer to the edge than I like but I loved the writing, the story and the characters too much to give up. If I can make it, almost anyone can. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. But I will be buying a personal copy because a portion of the proceeds go to two amazing organization that provide animals for those who those in need of support who do not fit the standard requirements: MIRA a group that provides guide dogs for youth between 11 and 16, the age at which other organizations take over, and 4Paws4Ability which provide service dogs for youth and for veterans.
This is a great addition to the SVCC series. I love the strong characters that struggle to do the right thing under impossible circumstances. In this book, we find Sophia deep undercover in a cartel, but issues from her own childhood add complications that she might not be able to overcome. Then a lover from her past shows up and threatens everything. Misty Evans creates strong, bold characters that are flawed. It makes them more real. Even the villain, while very evil, has a soft side. This novel kept me up late into the night to finish it. If you like romantic suspense, you will love this book. You can's go wrong with a book by Misty Evans and she is on my must read authors' list.
In Deadly Intent Misty Evans gave me a whirlwind of action, suspense, and romance. Nelson and Sophie have a past, and now they have a present together too...but will they have a future together? Nelson and Sophie's past is interesting, and the feelings still swirl around them when they are together, as much as Sophie in particular doesn't want them to. She has her own end goal and passion, one she keeps secret even from Nelson. Although Sophie was a difficult character at times to understand and get to know, I had to admire her strength and determination. Sophie did not come across as a team player, but she'll have no choice where Nelson is concerned! I really liked Nelson. He has a job to do, orders to carry out, but for Sophie he bends them, he goes with the flow (even if it is dangerous), and does what he believes to be the best thing to do given the circumstances. He hasn't forgotten the past either, and despite of it, he still wants Sophie...not only to be safe, but for himself. Can he have both though? Or either even? There is a lot of conflict, tension, and danger in Deadly Intent. Enough to keep me on the edge as I read, hoping that Sophie and Nelson could find resolution not only for the case they are working on but for themselves. As I read Deadly Intent the plot felt like it could be real, and the danger felt very real! The passion between Nelson and Sophia fills the pages, and the issues these two have are believable. There are quite a few secondary characters and some of the background is easier to understand if you have read the previous books in this series by Misty Evans (Southern California Violent Taskforce) who are easier to understand if you read the previous books in this series. Lexi, who is the villains sister, adds some extra emotional depth to the plot too. Deadly Intent is fast paced and easy to read, and I'd recommend it and this series to any romantic suspense reader.
