A treasure hunter thought he had everything in his life firmly in hand until a chance encounter with a mysterious redhead tests the limits of his self-control.

When FBI Special Agent Olivia Westcott’s boss hands over her next assignment, she has an opportunity to retrieve a priceless artifact and shut down a high-profile drug scheme in one fell swoop. All Liv has to do is work with the lead recovery agent of Blackwell Asset Recovery Services—with whom she’d had a passionate one-night stand two weeks prior—and not let her feelings compromise the case.

Zeke Blackwell still struggles with running the family business after his older brother unexpectedly left him in charge. Now he has the added responsibility of keeping drugs off the streets of small towns across Western North Carolina and keeping his hands off the too-enticing special agent while they’re planning the joint operation. As if that’s not enough to keep him up at night, he’s also searching for a centuries-old treasure that could change the course of his and his family’s lives.

But what starts as a high-value asset recovery spirals out of control when their enemies force Liv and Zeke to stay one step ahead of danger. Is their attraction worth the risk? Or will they find themselves playing a game too dangerous to survive?

 

This dive back into Steele Ridge brings non-stop mystery! While there were many characters and several irons in different fires to keep track of, The Blackwell brothers came in strong and packed a punch. The plot was interesting, the characters were bewitching and the familial love and angst was spot on. I’m looking forward to more to come in the series, hopefully with a bit more Steele interaction.

Zeke is brusque and all business, but he’s got a heart of gold and an expectation upon himself that puts the weight of the world on his shoulders. I enjoyed seeing him accept love and seeing him thrive when he lets his brothers into his inner circle was heartwarming.

Olivia is a dynamo. Single mom, wrapped in grief, yet open to whatever this relationship may become right from the start. I liked her a lot.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a high action story filled with danger, family camaraderie and a sexy flirt of love and romance.
