Review by Lilac

Sexy Nate Walker, an undercover cop, operating out of bounds and under the radar, is attempting to bust one of the biggest drug dealers, Lucas Becker, in the state of Montana. What he hadn't planned on was bumping into his Callie Jensen, the woman he ran out on years ago, at Lucas Becker's wedding reception.

Nate wants Becker taken down because of what happened to his younger sister. His instincts warn him that he's been made, that Becker is on to him. When Callie creates a major disturbance at the reception, Nate loses it when Becker's bodyguards man handle her. Nate drags a protesting and uncooperative Callie from the reception.

With some fancy foot work, Callie and Nate manage to elude the gun toting bodyguards, while discovering that the sexual chemistry still burns red-hot between the two of them. High speed car chases and dodging bullets can't seem to stop the reunited lovers from raising the heat level in spite of the life threatening danger.

After nearly losing his sister to an overdose, undercover cop, Nate Walker is working without departmental approval to bring down Lucas Becker, the dealer responsible. He never expected to have his ex, Callie Jensen show up and crash Becker’s wedding reception. But now that she has Nate risks blowing his cover as he and Callie flee the scene. When Callie jumped into the wedding cake of her ex who cheated on her, she only intended to cause a scene to get back at Becker. She never expected to see another of her ex-boyfriends, Nate, at the wedding nor did she expect to learn that Becker was a drug lord. Now, Nate and Callie are on the run from Becker’s gunmen as they flee the reception.

While I enjoyed this story, there were quite a few coincidences I found hard to believe, including the connection between Callie, Nate, and Becker. I also found it hard to believe that the couple would stop to have sex while fleeing the gunmen after them. And Callie was a bit too flighty for my tastes, but I did enjoy her relationship with Nate. They had chemistry that sizzled and I enjoyed watching them reconnect.

The story was a bit too short for my taste and I would have loved to know more about the couple and their lives. Despite this and the other things I mention I enjoyed the story and the action of the plot.
