The past has come back to haunt her.
Having battled long and hard to put her painful past behind her, DEA Special Agent Taylor Kennedy has done everything in her power to make a new life for herself. She never dreamed that same past would suddenly show up on her doorstep one night, or that its reappearance would threaten everything she's built for herself. Faced with the unthinkable, she'll have to make the agonizing choice between her trusted childhood friend, and the man who's managed to steal her wary heart.
And the consequences could be fatal.
FAST Bravo member Logan Granger knows Taylor was hurt badly by something in her past. He never expected to fall for a straight-laced, uptight forensic accountant, but Taylor has managed to redefine his definition of sexy, and now he wants to uncover all her secrets. Though they're opposites in almost every way, Logan is determined to break through her barriers and show her just how good things can be between them. Then their worst nightmare is realized when Taylor becomes the target of the merciless Veneno cartel, and Logan will risk everything to save her--including his life.

This is book 2 in the DEA FAST series and it features Dillon Wainright, Taylor Kennedy and Logan Granger. No, this is not a ménage but the story line does revolve around these three characters. It's a fast-paced, action-packed romance with plenty of sexy alpha men running around. Logan was an amazing man and I could read about him all day. Taylor turned out to be a huge surprise for me. And Dillon? There were moments when I thought his guilty conscience would make him do the right thing...or maybe not. This author kept me on my toes as far as which way, good or bad, Dillon's character would go. Awesome read! Great story line with fantastic characters. I can't wait to read more.
DEA Special Agent Taylor Kennedy is a forensic accountant. She's worked long and hard to get where she is. All seems to go well until Dillon shows up. Dillon is a part of the past that she doesn't want to remember. He was her foster brother ... both in an abusive foster home when they were kids. Dillon stood up for her, kept her safe, and took a lot of beatings rather than see her hurt. She hasn't seen him in many years. But here he is ... on her porch waiting for her. Dillon is a member of a vicious drug carter, the right hand man for one of the worst cartels known. As an Accountant, she's responsible for tracking the money from this particular group ... and Dillon has discovered she works for the DEA. Dillon gets his orders straight from the top .... have her taken out one way or the other and preferably permanently. He hasn't forgotten what they shared, but he's been in the dark for way too long. He will make sure her death is relatively painless. Logan Granger is a new member of FAST, taking down the cartels and relieving them of their product and money. He also has a huge attraction to the very quiet accountant. Taylor is also attracted to him, which is somewhat of a surprise for her. They are opposites in almost every way ... she's quiet, likes evenings at home with her cat and puzzles. She keeps everything in it's place.. her way of control in her life. Logan is bigger than life ... loves the outdoors, white water rafting, almost anything that gets the adrenalin moving. His protective mode comes to light when Taylor is the target of the cartel. But even having her in a safe house doesn't keep her safe. Dillon will find her and do what is asked of him. This is a new author to me and I'm pleased to say I wasn't disappointed. The story premise is a good one and the characters are cleverly written. Taylor is a woman who has had to be strong, basically alone in the world with very few friends. Logan is a macho guy with a lot of softness when it comes to the lady in his life. I love how they interacted .. he doesn't push, but rather lets her come to trust him in her own time. The romance is very sweet, although very intense at times. Many thanks to the author / Kaylea Cross Inc. / Netgalley for the digital copy of this Romantic Suspense.

OMG loved this book and loved the storyline between Taylor and Logan and how she was betrayed by a brother figure in Dillon and how she had to kill him in order to stay alive and now Logan brought her out of her shell. Also she fell for Logan and he fell for her. Thanks for an amazing book and Kalyea is a great author thanks for a great book
