She watches the mob kill her twin and is too frozen with fear to stop them. How can she live with that cowardice eating away at her self-respect? Revenge claws at her sheltered existence until she can't breathe. Though she's naïve, she isn't stupid. When she finds a stash of loot in her brother's gym locker, she has the means.
Now all she needs is the guts to make every one of those low-life gang members pay.
People might think detectives are hard-assed cops with no home life, but Trace McGuire has a dying mom he loves fiercely. Already stressed over his personal problems, he takes a bullet for a virgin beauty hiding while mobsters shoot her brother.
This chick draws out every protective instinct he thought had disintegrated over years on the job and he becomes invested - in her hot body, her plans for retaliation and her fighting spirit.
Helpless, he watches her enter the seedy underworld that'll eat her alive.
Then he sees her fight.
And wonders if they'll survive her.

About the Author
"Because it's fun! Imagination can be a lot more interesting than what happens in real life to so-called normal people. I love my characters, and my goal is to make the readers love them also. To care about what happens to them while the tale unfolds. If I can steal my booklover's attention away from their every-day grind, absorb them into a fictional world, and make them care about the ending, then I've done my job."

Sweet retaliation by Mimi Barbour is equal parts suspense and drama with some romance mixed in. The book was well written and interesting. I liked how Cassidy grew and changed. I thought it was great to see her be a badass but she was still her and even though she struggled with her newly awakened desire and her urge for revenge she still showed innocence. I thought Trace was a super good guy and I like the good guys. He was such a protective character and I love his relationship with his mom and how he always made sure she was take care of. All in all it was a pretty good read and I enjoyed it. 4 star rating.
Sweet Retaliation (Mob Tracker Series Book 1) by Mimi Barbour is a story that is full of action, suspense and of course you just can't miss the gorgeous hero. I have read other short stories by this author but nothing like this book from her. I love seeing a different side to this author. She has created a story that is fast reading, page turning and will keep you engaged until the end. You will love her attention to detail and her writing style is awesome. Her creation of characters are connectable and true to life. These characters will pull you into their world of suspense and mystery. This story is about murder and revenge. In this story you will meet Cass and Trace. One Cass's life will change forever when she witnesses her brothers murder. This is also when Trace saving her life from a bullet. Cass wants her brothers murder caught and brought to justice so she takes justice into her own hands. Trace is the detective that has been assigned to the case and is determined to find the murdered. These two will take you on some twists and turns that will leave you sitting on the edge of you seat just waiting to see what will happen behind the next corner. Cass has been one of my favorite characters I have come across in awhile. She is independent, sassy and knows how to get things done. She is a librarian turned bad girl to bring justice to her brother. I felt bad for her when she had to witness her only family left. She is smart and loved how strong she was, I am not sure I could have done what she did. Trace is also a strong character besides being hot and sexy. He is independent and not afraid to push limits when he needs to. Together these two make a strong team not to be messed with. I kept hoping for them to find their HEA because they just complement each other. They have a connection and a strong attraction to each other. Some of the secondary characters I didn't care for but you need to have nasty characters to complete the story. I wouldn't change them at all, they make the story flow, they are just nasty. I know you are going to want to find out if Cass gets her revenge. I highly recommend this story as you will totally lose yourself in this book! You don't want to miss this one!
