Unstoppable is a book three in the series that I just jumped right into. After some research, I found out that this book continues right from where the last one ended. Even though I felt a bit disconnected right at the beginning of the story, it didn't take me long to figure out who the players were, their goals, and their relationships. The author did a great job setting up the stage even for a newbie readers to the series, but if you have a chance, start from the beginning. I really liked the author's style and voice, and can only think that her other books are as enjoyable and entertaining as this one was. The complex, yet very loyal, relationship Destiny Harper has to Mick Donovan was a rather beautiful thing to witness. I liked these two together. I liked the chemistry between them, they were obviously attracted to each other yet never had acted on it. They had a true friendship with the trust and devotion it entails. They were willing to die for each other, and that was before they opened up their minds to the love they had in their hearts for each other. The allure, the burning feelings, the desire, it all heightened because of the dangerous situation they were in. They had a solid friendship between them, understanding and knowledge of each other like no one else, and that was the perfect foundation to start to build something more, something lasting, something that scared them both to the bone. But first, they had to survive the predicament they were in. Little Nate was a trooper. He was smart, fun little guy, yet so full of sorrow and pain, it just broke my heart. The bond he had with Mick and Dez was touching, bringing me to tears several times. The suspense in the story was riveting. It was scary, dangerous, deadly, and vicious, and had me seriously questioning even the good guy's integrity. Very clever twists in the plot had me literally jumping on my seat with the scare it gave me (while reading in a public park!). Very well done build up with the tension, aggression, doubts, and questions when it came to the mystery of the murder, and the suspense and action with the drug cartel. Rough, raw, and edgy does not only describe the action and suspense, but also the characters and the situations they are in. Not only was the dialog witty, but so were the unexpected twists in the plot. I love finding new authors who manage to blow my mind with they work, and Cindy Skaggs had me questioning everything and everyone while reading the Unstoppable. What a great, chilling yet entertaining ride it was! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This is the third book in the series, you can read it as a standalone, however you will know the characters better if you read them all. Mick and Dez, have to go on the run to protect Nate from his real father who is a horrible man. Nate did not know about him, and he is sad because they had just killed him adopted parents. Mick and Dez, finally act on there attraction, but both of them, do not want more. Dez, is being used as the scapegoat, since the mole is tying up all the lose ends. The truth comes out, and after much mayhem, it is finally over, and both Mick and Dez admit that they love each other and want to pursue more.

The finale book in an undeniably great series. It has been an adrenaline rush keeping up with the taskforce crew but all good things have to come to an end sadly. The 3rd book takes up at almost the end of the 2nd book, so you really do have to read the series in order just to keep things straight in your head. Dez be mind numbing babysitting duty of a young child and his parents. What she walks in on is a bloodbath of an ambush. Thankfully her young charge was not present and she is able to secure him before the bad guys get a bead on him. She goes off grid but not before the delectable Mick appears to be her back up! But when Sully's crew keep catching up to them, they realise there has to be a leak on the taskforce. Dez only really trusts Mick and her partner so when they go off grid she takes them to the place she fled 10 yrs before. Nothing like small town scandal to mask their very real need to be able to see the bad guys coming. But even in the midst of all this, Mick can't deny the pull he feels towards the lovely, but perfectly deadly Dez! He knows she has her secrets, so does he, but even uncomfortable with their cover as he is, he can't disregard just how...happy he feels knowing she is safe. There are moles, deadly drug runners, aunties with sheriffs in tow and a certain devastated little boy, who is valiantly trying to soldier on after the loss of his parents and uncertainty of his future. Dr Diane was a brilliant sideline character and if she ever appears in her own book I'd be stoked! Fast paced, engaging, laugh inducing, toe-curling passion and a HEA to satisfy my little romantic soul! Brilliant read!

This is a fantastic romantic suspense. It's the third in a series and while it can be read standalone I think you will enjoy it more if you've read the prior book first. Trying to protect a young boy, Destiny Harper finds herself in a world of trouble and danger. Mick Donovan seems to be the only one she can turn to for help. She knows his first priority is avenging his brother's death but she's hoping that keeping her and her young charge safe will be just as important to him. A very well done story with tons of twists and turns to the story making it difficult to put down. I would definitely recommend this one!

LOVED this book! It's non-stop action from the very first page when Dez finds herself in the middle of a setup. As people are dying around her, her only thought it to survive and find the boy at the center of everything. Dez finds the boy and Mick and soon they're fleeing for their lives. Unfortunately, what seems like the safest place is also a step back in time for Dez. She left home as a teenager and never looked back for a reason and those reasons are about to inflict themselves on her current circumstances. As they're protecting the boy, both Dez and Mick are dealing with the sparks flying between them and wondering if they should act on them. Their relationship most definitely heats up and adds spice to their circumstances. Fans of the genre will love this book. It's fast paced, entertaining, and had me turning pages just as quickly as possible. While it's part of a series, this is a stand alone novel. The author is on my must read authors' list.

Thrilling novel Although I haven't read the first two books in the series, I feel that the author did a good job with the background information pertaining to the events leading up to this story. Mick is out for revenge about the life changing tragedy which occurred when he was a young boy. He doesn't have much faith in the legal system but as his best friend Blake is working undercover on the same case, he works with him and his partner under his own volition. Their objective is to capture Sully, an evasive drug lord who is responsible for endless criminal offenses. Dez, short for Destiny is Blake's partner and their mission is to protect Nathan, a young boy who is being pursued by Sully. She works very closely with Mick who would like nothing better than putting Sully where he belongs. Behind bars! Mick and Dez have become good friends during their time working together but there has always been an underlying sexual attraction between them. Something neither of them is willing to act upon, due to unpleasant past experiences. There is an ambush where Dez finds herself in the middle of a bloodbath. Against all odds, she manages to get to Nathan before those looking for him. Mick is there as soon as he learns of the situation and it becomes blatant that there is a mole in the organisation. Not knowing who it might be, they decide to go to a safe place where it will not be easy to locate them. This takes Dez to a past that she left behind a long time ago. She is prepared to face the consequences to keep Nathan safe. Things get ugly when she comes face to face with her past and the ripple effects are quite unexpected. They are in more danger than anticipated. This brings them closer together and they become friends with benefits but the sparks between them say that there is more at stake. Can they deny their feelings if they come out of this dangerous predicament? This story is well paced, action packed and sensual. It's a thrilling page turner with surprises at every turn. I received a complimentary eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
