Publisher: St. Marin's Paperbacks
Publish Date: May 30, 2017
When she was on the verge of adulthood, Riva Henneman committed a crime and got caught red-handed. Luckily, she was busted by a HOT young cop...who also had a big heart. A one-time SEAL candidate, Officer Ian Hawthorn knew how it felt to have your dreams derailed. So he gave Riva a choice: face prison time or work for him as a confidential informant. But even a get-out-of-jail-free card comes with a cost. . .
Years later, Ian still remembers beautiful, innocent Riva--and the smoldering attraction they shared but both tried to ignore. Will they have a second chance, now that they're back in each other's lives? Riva's work with inner-city children has led to a surprise run-in with Ian, who has his own agenda--one that could put them both in grave danger. Is their desire worth the risk this time?
The high octane suspense and super sizzling romance continues with Turn Me Loose, the third novel in the Alpha Ops series by Anne Calhoun.
GREAT CHEMISTRY in this suspenseful novel.
I had some doubts about Ian and Riva in the beginning but they drew me in and kept me glued to the story. Ian comes off as a hard-ass cop and Riva is a product of her upbringing. I liked how they "met" and later reacquainted.
Flashbacks and present day are intertwined when telling this story. The tension and chemistry make this book enjoyable along with the suspense and light drama.
