Learning to trust could bring them together—keeping secrets could tear them apart 

Going undercover to take down murderous gun smugglers is what Duff Watson lives for. Until he tracks the ring to a Missouri farm…and meets paramedic Melanie Fiske. Now the KCPD detective has another critical task: winning over the curvy redhead who tempts him yet whom he can't let himself trust.  

Something about the protective ex-soldier makes Melanie believe he can help her find out the truth about her family. And the desire Duff awakens feels like the real thing. But when Melanie's life is threatened, can she keep trusting—and loving—a man who lives a life of dangerous deception?

I love a good undercover cop book any day of the week and this author knows how to write them! Her Precinct books are great and I'm enjoying this latest series of Bachelors in Blue. In this one, we get to know the 3rd Watson brother, Duff. He's going undercover to take down some gun smugglers, while hoping to find a connection to the wedding-day shooting that injured his grandfather. He ends up at a Missouri family farm that is anything but "family friendly"! It starts to look more like a militia! Things are not as they seem....... He meets paramedic Melanie Fiske on his first day on "the farm" because he gets injured. Soon, he sees that she's not like the others on the family farm. Together they begin to investigate all the strange goings-on about the farm where Melanie has lived her whole life. There is a lot of action and suspense, as is the norm for Julie's books! The characters are well-developed and likable. I can't wait until the next book to find out who the "real villain" is! The Watson clan deserve to know who shot up their sister's wedding and injured their grandfather! I recommend this book!

As the prologue of the story goes from a sweet and sentimental moment to a full blown deadly action the hero Tom Duff Watson's different sides of personality and nature is shown to the reader in clear colors. He is a protective warrior, willing to go face to face with danger if someone is threatening his loved ones. Yet there's the charming, kind, considerate, a tender feeling sweet man inside there that had me sighing and swooning while watching him in action. And Melanie Fiske was the perfect mate to Tom. Her life had been restricted at the compound and she had never experienced a romance or attraction yet there was the burning need inside her to get to know Tom better, to be close to him, to touch him. The passion between them was fierce and gentle at the same time, the chemistry was delightfully sizzling. They were friends who shared their secrets, sorrows, and aspirations, they were partners who had each other's back, they were lovers with a deep yearning and eagerness to please their mate. I absolutely adored them together, still smiling just thinking about them! The Fiske community is based on a dictatorial fear that keeps the followers on line. Out of that fear, they will do what they are told to do, the seemingly picturesque life in their community is based on control and scare tactics. The knowledge that something sinister is behind the closed doors is building up the edgy dangerous feelings the suspense on the story is based on. The constant feeling that someone is watching your every movement, just waiting for you to fail a direct order or step out of line. That creepy kind of fear that gives you chills on your spine and goosebumps in your arms, that chill you can feel through the story as it unfolds and more deceit is revealed. I enjoyed the author's voice and the effortless flow of the well-written tale. I could feel the enthusiasm and passion for telling the story, for the characters and their survival as well as for the HEA. That kind of energy and emotion transfers to the reader and adds to the indulgence of the tale. A perfect mix of suspense and romance where the escalating danger and adoration are seamlessly twined together, where you are sighing and swooning one moment then holding your breath in fear in a flash of the threat. ~ Five Spoons! *Thankful for the NetGalley eARC*

Secrets and deception are front and center as we head back into the world of the Watson family drama! Always great to see some familiar faces, and to delve into the next mystery awaiting them! Kansas City detective Tom "Duff" Watson will stop at nothing to find the person responsible for playing games with his family. He's going undercover to try to uncover a gun smuggling ring in the mountains. He never expects to run across a gorgeous ally so easily! Paramedic Melanie Fiske might be living on the Fiske Family Farm like her uncle expects, but she's not sure what's going on around her anymore. Secrets and lies are popping up more than ever before and she's started to suspect things are not as she's been told. When Tom almost immediately seems like a kindred spirit when he starts working there, she's nervous about trusting him at face value ... but he might be her only chance at finding out the truth around here!
