What an action packed thrilling read that really keeps you turning the pages with thrills of sniper killing bad people. When the police department and the FBI meet sparks fly with enough heat to set the sky blazing. The author gives you mystery of trying to work out who the sniper is and what his ties are. She gives you a believable story that is very realistic it pulls you in from the first page. I found myself turning the pages to see where the author would take me with a story I could not put down. My mind doesn’t work around transporting a prisoner only to have him shot and killed before your eyes. Everyone is now on the hunt to find out just who the shooter is. Things do not add up with this prison that really has no value he isn’t important to any major crime rings or is he. Cal and Eve make a great team as they put their head together both agree something isn’t right things aren’t adding up. Both are very strong characters that aren’t over pushy or bossy just wonderful ones that really grab your attention. As they get closer to who and why the witness was killed they grow closer together. Each knowing this isn’t a good thing they try their best to keep passion at arms links. With more prisoners ending up dead there are many questions that need answering. Why and who would be doing this, what does he have against the people, is it the crime family or just someone who wants to take out criminals one at a time? At times my heart was beating fast wondering if Eve might be the next one. The author gives such vivid details you can picture the scene unfold leaving you with a shock look on your face. The story just seems so real you can tell the author really has done her research. It is a romance but more built on the suspense and action which is very entertaining. The characters and supporting characters add so much to the plot as things get very dangerous. I enjoyed learning about Cal’s sister and all she went through. I see a story based around her in the near future. I honestly never know what to expect when I pick up one of Ms. Ryan’s books. I know it will be filled with excitement that will keep my attention pulling me in and it is going to be an outstanding plot. This is one of my go to authors when I want that added thrill, and just the right about of romance that only this author can pull off. Anyone who loves a thrill, adventure, excitement and suspense with a touch of romance will love this.

This Story sucks you in. You can't help but feel a part of the investigation and everything involved. This book is a very strong Mystery/crime thriller with a touch of romantic chemistry thrown in. Cal's story was highly anticipated and did not disappoint. He is a great cop to start off this new series. Eve is a great match for him. They have a lot of chemistry between the two, that is hard to act on while they are working together, but like any great chemistry/love story is hard to deny. I want more of the two, I can see their love story exploding into so much more. I hope they continue to appear in future books. I love how characters are brought in from another series and previous crimes are mentioned so that you feel like you are apart of this town, and it's history. Both characters are strong, well described and deep. The mystery is well developed and adds in points that make you think. The Killer is not predictable and makes the story that much stronger. The romance is lacking a little, but does not take away from a great read. This one is truly hard to put down

Detective Cal Rylan, is paired with Special Agent Eve Sands to catch the vigilante sniper that is threatening the town of New Haven. Too bad they aren't able to explore the chemistry between them while they are working together on this case. I loved the suspense as they tried to piece together the clues to determine the identity of the sniper. I look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy.

Mystery, romance, suspense...this gives you all three. I really enjoyed reading this book. I love a book that stimulates my mind, trying to figure out exactly what is happening and why. The icing on the cake with this book is the romance. It wasn't sappy, silly, or full of angst. Cal and Eve both had strong personalities, and a strong attraction to each other. They seemed to bring out the best in one another. Two adults who actually managed to have a relationship without all of the drama. Sweet as. This book puts me in the mind of Lily Danes and Eve Kincaid 's Lost Coast Harbor series. Lori Ryan's writing easily draws you into Cal and Eve's world, and doesn't let go until she is done telling their story. I would definitely recommend this book. I would love to see a book about Cal's partner Jarrod, and one about his sister Joy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy.

Another thrilling ride of a read by this author! Cal, a police detective, and Eve, an FBI agent, meet on a task force and work together to solve a string of vigilante-type sniper homicides. As long as they worked together on the case they have to fight their escalating attraction for each other while fighting crime, but their combined intellect and past experiences make them an unbeatable couple at finding the reasons for the shootings and ultimately the sniper. Ryan knows how to do unbeatable romantic suspense !

This is one action packed story from start to finish. It's the first book in a new series but it starts with a familiar character, Cal Rylan. Rylan is the detective highlighted in the recent Sutton Capital books and now we get his story. After his partner is injured Cal is teamed up with Special Agent Eve Sands to solve the case of the sniper that is terrorizing the city. As the case heats up so does the attraction between these two! Don't miss this one, I highly recommend it!
