Kat Culhane hasn’t seen Mike D’Antoni for two years until they run into each other in Texas. Time has passed but the heat between them hasn’t diminished. Hello leads to lunch, lunch leads to dinner, and dinner leads to bed…and the most erotic sex they’ve ever had.
When Kat’s sister disappears, along with her boss and his family, Mike and the Phoenix Agency roll into action, with Kat’s remote viewing abilities playing a key role in the search. At night she loses herself in Mike’s arms as his hands and mouth soothe and seduce her. In addition to finding her sister, it’s obvious to Kat and Mike that this time around, they also have to find a way to hang on to each other.
When the sexy ex-military pilot, Mike D’Antoni finds his way back into the life of his former lover Kat Culhane, the two find that their romance has not diminished at all with time but is indeed still as lethal as ever. Soon however Kat has a bigger concern than whether her romance with Mike will last this time. Her sister, as well as a wealthy prominent family, have been kidnapped by the Mexican Drug Cartel.
How will she ever rescue her little sister?
Well...Welcome to the Phoenix Agency!
With Kat's remote viewing abilities and Mike's teammates at the agency, Kat soon learns that they can do more than any normal government agency could even dream of.
Again Desiree Holt has shown her readers that she is indeed a true romance writing star!
F-Stop is a thrilling literary ride of suspense, intrigue and eroticism. Despite the fact I have yet to read the whole series, I loved that this account was not a book where I got lost because I hadn't read previous books in the series. In fact, this tale only cemented my desire to catch up with all of the characters lives thus far in the previous books.
I really enjoyed the fact that I could not predict whom the betrayer was until the end of the book. This is unusual for me as I find that I can predict the ending more times than not in most suspense mysteries. Ms. Holt has showed in F-Stop that she can write a passionate adventure filled with conspiracy and twisting plots. Not only was this reader pulling for Mike and Kat's relationship, which was scorching, I found myself cheering on the Phoenix Agency to find, locate and rescue our unfortunate victims.
As I stated previously, not only was I completely caught-up in the lives of Mike and Kat, I found myself just as intrigued with the secondary characters. Her villains were despicable and her heroes were exciting. What more can a gal possibly ask for in a erotic romance-thriller?
Are you looking for a story filled with twist and turns and a lot of heat? Well F-Stop may just be the last stop you will have to make. Hang-on and enjoy the thrill!
