A gripping story about one woman's fight for justice. “This is a suspense-filled, full-bore, non-stop action ride that you will absolutely love.”

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.

"This book is a terrific beginning to the story of Cassi out to revenge the killing of her twin brother. Her involvement with Trace is fraught with tension as he wants to protect her, but she is determined to track down the killer. They spend a lot of time together and have both difficult and tender moments. Cassi finds out she has more strength than she thought, both inner fortitude and physical strength as a boxer. It's great when she kicks ass! It is also especially tender when Cassi and Trace begin to fall in love. He's conflicted because he's investigating the murder of her brother and can't be involved with her while the case is open. But their love is too strong for that to stop them from giving in to their desire to have beautiful sex. The book ends with some of the story still remaining to be told, but is very satisfying as a stand alone part of a bigger story. How has Mimi Barbour got past my genre addiction for fast pace, action, thrills and spills type reads? I don't know, but now that I have found her, I am never letting go. Alpha males and kick ass girls in a well written novel that I couldn't put down. Thank you Mimi, next in series already downloaded."
