An FBI agent assigned to investigate a meddlesome lobbyist for her role in a possible pay-to-play scheme discovers a secret political organization willing to destroy everything to attain ultimate power—including the woman he loves.

In this highly anticipated, fifth and final installment of the Steele Ridge: The Blackwells series, Tracey Devlyn thrusts readers into the murky world of high-stakes politics and complex family relationships, wrapped in a sizzling enemies-to-lovers story.

As a savvy and successful lobbyist, Kayla Krowne knows all about deception. Each day, she swims in a vast tank of opportunistic sharks. But nothing prepares her for the downward spiral her life takes after witnessing the assassination of a high-profile public official. When the police suggest she may have been the true target, her only hope of rooting out the murderer lies with the one Blackwell brother she’s never been able to win over. The one she’s held a secret longing for since their first meeting two years earlier.

Special Agent Asher Cameron Blackwell’s day started off bad and ended worse. Not only is he drowning in a swamp of paperwork, he now has two investigations involving none other than Kayla-effing-Krowne. One is a presumed assassination case and the other one he’s compelled to keep from her because of a promise he made to his semi-estranged brother, Zeke.

Forced into close proximity, Ash and Kayla finally give in to the passion they can no longer hide, forging an unstoppable union as they navigate an intricate maze of lies and betrayals, and uncovering a heartbreaking conspiracy that leads them to Kayla’s doorstep. It’s a life-and-death battle that they dare not lose.


The Blackwells are going out in style with unputdownable intrigue and drama galore! The fifth and final book in the Steel Ridge: The Blackwells series did not disappoint. We’ve known all along that there was going to be some tension and back story to Ash’s story and bringing Kayla Krowne into the picture as his leading lady only added to the dazzle. I was hooked from the very start of their story and kept turning page after page as the drama kept getting more and more suspect. I really enjoyed them as a whole and felt like they were easy to connect with. I’m sad to see this series and family overall come to an end, and I highly recommend you go back to the start if you haven’t fallen in love with the Steele Ridge town and extended family yet. Well developed characters, a great core family to rely on and lots of mystery and intrigue along the way.
