IN A BAD WAY by Karin Tabke

What happens when Mr. Suit and Tie meets Ms. Wild Style? A chemical reaction that leaves them IN A BAD WAY!

A missing stripper sister, the Russian mob, a smoking hot FBI Agent and the enigmatic woman who lies at the center of it all, is as crazy sexy as it gets.

Isadora Fuentes will do anything to find her missing sister, even slip on a bikini and serve drinks at the strip club where her sister worked. But when Andre, the Russian giant who runs the joint, instructs Izzy, aka "Wild Style," to strip for a federal agent and make a compromising video, Izzy balks...until Andre hints he has information on Izzy's sister--for the price of the tape.

Special Agent Flynn Ryker is a loner by choice, but when his buddy gets engaged, he shows up at Surf's Up Strip Club in San Francisco for the bachelor party of a lifetime. What he doesn't expect is his immediate attraction to a saucy little stripper named Wild Style. When she attempts to slip him a roofie and videotape him in bed, Flynn has two options: Haul her pretty little ass in and arrest her or go along with the sting and see where it leads...

Working together to solve the disappearance of her half sister, Isadora Fuentes and Special Agent Flynn Ryker may disagree on tactics, but there's no denying the sizzling chemistry between them. Will the secrets they hide from each other ruin their chance for love?

"Whatever they had went beyond sex. He didn't have to touch her to feel their connection. It thrummed like a live wire around them. When they came together, Jesus, the way she made him feel. Like Superman. He'd never felt anything like it." ~Flynn Ryker

"Izzy and Flynn share a phenomenal connection, the sexual tension between them virtually vibrates off the pages. Ms. Tabke writes sex scenes that make you feel like a voyeur. In a good way! Whether flirty and slow to build, or fast and needy, they culminate in a knock-your-socks-off crescendo every time....If this were a paperback copy, mine would be dog-eared all over the place and the spine cracked to hell. Once again, Ms. Tabke has written a book I couldn't put down." ~ IslandDeb,

I freaking LOVED this book!!! I can’t believe that I haven’t been introduced to Karin’s work until now, I mean…I am definitely going to be going back to the other books in the series and I REALLY look forward to any future work as well! This story line is FULL of twists but in a good way! I never became confused or lost interest because of how much was going on. Flynn and Izzy have a definitely hate/lust/love relationship going on. Nevertheless they are put together for an investigation searching for Izzy's half-sister Alex. And boy oh boy, the sex? The sex is awesome!!! Moving on… HAHA… I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK!!!! There just isn’t anything for me to complain about and I feel if I kept writing I would give spoilers, which is something I absolutely HATE…sooooo do yourself a favor and grab this one! You won’t regret it! *I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

I enjoyed the premise for this story. Isadore is trying to find her half-sister after turning away. This takes her into a strip club. She is very comfortable in her own skin and more focused on finding Alex than her own safety. The instant she sees Flynn, the electricity zaps both of them. They are very hot together but carry their own issues that try to keep them apart. Flynn is very protective and possessive without going too far. Their struggle to work through their problems and be honest with the other kept me riveted to the story. This was the first story by Karin Tabke that I have read, and I will be checking out more of her books. I had a chance to read this though Netgalley for an honest review.

That's the feeling Tabke gives you with Isadora and Flynn. Isadora, a no nonsense, striaght forward, unapologetic and ready to do what needs to be done to find her sister. Walks in Flynn, So serious, work is his life and his life is turned upside down by a little spitfire not taken no for an answer. As the story unravels and the electrifying chemistry between two of the most oppsoite people takes flight. Be prepare for laughter, tears and the greatest man-takedown by a women that gives it all even though she's the one who has more to lose.

I am a fan of this authors work. She always develops her female characters as strong independent woman able to take care of themselves and this book is no different. Isadora is unapologetic and is doing what she needs to do to find her sister. Flynn is a character that I have been waiting to read about for a long time and he disappointed me a bit in the beginning but came through in the end. The story line is topical to what is going on today's world in terms of illegal activities (female abduction / slavery) and keeps up a good pace. There are comedic moments, tense ones and some hot explosive chemistry scenes. I liked catching up with Simon, Katerina, Jack and Stevie and look forward to more storylines from these characters.
