Hold the cheese please
Cade By Liliana Hart
Cade MacKenzie is prepared to give his life to destroy the cartel that killed his lover, but the only way to draw them out is to present them with the perfect bait.
Bayleigh Scott has no idea who her new neighbor is, only that her body is drawn to him in ways she can’t explain, and the danger that surrounds him isn’t the deterrent she knows it should be.
More than fireworks explode between Cade and Bayleigh when she discovers why he relentlessly pursued her, but by then it’s too late, because she’s already been drawn into a deadly game of desire, deception and revenge.
My rate & take
Heat Index 3 ☼☼☼
It seemed liked it had potential what with a bonus story line of drug runners to help avoid some of the traps of the formula romance novel, but it tripped over itself in its predictability and cheesy thoughts and dialog of the main characters.
Now that I have gotten the negative part of my review over I will say some nice things...the main male character was a hot alpha to the core (which was all kinds of fun to read about) and the main female did have some back bone which helped to keep the tension going between the two. I found out this is book 6 in a series but it certainly read well as a stand alone....near the end, the book briefly focuses on a budding relationship for two fringe characters that get their own book (book 7) to spot light their love story.
I would safely say this would be an o.k. beach read, nothing taxing, no jarring plot twists, but some steamy fun to be had.
