Take the shot…or take a chance?

FBI sniper Andre Diaz saved Juliette Lawson from a deadly hostage situation. But only hours later, he receives the surprise of his life when she takes him hostage in order to escape Quantico. Now the federal agent knows just how desperate Juliette is to stay hidden from her dangerous cop ex-husband.

Putting her trust in another law enforcement officer is difficult. Yet Juliette senses Andre is definitely one of the good guys. Perhaps he truly can protect her from the secrets she's been running from—unless her deadly past catches up with them both first.


Just when she thought she could stop running, danger strikes when she least expects it! Elizabeth Heiter is back with the first of three books in a spinoff to her popular “The Lawmen” series, “Bullets and Brawn”.  She brings us in hot in the middle of a hostage situation, and keeps the action and intrigue popping throughout. A well-developed cast of lawmen, friends and family work diligently to get to the bottom of the case and keep Juliette safe. I would have liked to see a tad more of their romance play out in the plot, but overall a great book! Looking forward to the next in the series!

FBI sniper Andre Diaz expects just another day on the job when he’s called out to a hostage situation, but as things turn rocky, he steps in to rescue Juliette Lawson. She knows who is behind this setup, but she can’t admit to it.  When she tried to get help in the past, no one would believe that her cop of an ex-husband did what she said he did. She’s desperate to get away from the questioning, but Andre never thought she’d urge him at gunpoint to get her away from Quantico!

Even though she’s threatening him, Andre can tell she’s not the bad guy here. She needs someone on her side for once, and based on the instant draw he feels towards her, he’s going to be it! Can he and his connections keep her safe while they try to track down her ex?

  1. I so need to read this. I’ve read the second book of this series, but not this one. Reading out of order is so not like me.
