Lethal Temptation by Kaylea Cross
Available Now | Rifle Creek Series, #2
She’s got her guard up.
Detective Avery Dahl finally has her life back on track after a painful divorce. She’s not going to risk her heart again, especially to a sexy veteran with heartbreak written all over him. Due to extenuating circumstances at an upcoming family wedding, she reluctantly agrees to bring him as her fake boyfriend—and soon realizes her mistake. Because Mason is as lethal with seduction as he is with a weapon, and keeps pushing her boundaries until her carefully constructed walls begin to crumble. Her instinct is to push him away, but when a mysterious enemy targets her, Avery has a choice to make. Face it alone, or take a risk and let him in.
He’s determined to get past it.
After a horrific accident ended his military career, Mason Gallant has struggled to fit into the civilian world. Now that he and his buddies are opening a business together in Rifle Creek, he’s finally found his footing again. But he never counted on meeting a woman like Avery. He can’t stop thinking about her, so when she needs help, he steps up. Except posing as her boyfriend makes things even worse—because he soon realizes he wants way more than just her body. Now that he’s seen the caring, sensual woman inside the tough cop, he wants to protect her from whoever is threatening her. As the attraction between them heats up, the danger escalates. Mason must prove to her that she can trust him with her heart as well as her life—or risk losing her to the bullet of a stone-cold killer.

A thrilling second story in this new romance suspense series. Avery and Mason were both a part of the first story with Avery as a boss babe detective with her partner, Tate, and Mason, a recovering soldier, new in town and Tate’s good buddy. The former comrades in arms are now embarking on a new business venture with friend, Braxton, in picturesque Rifle Creek. The military buddies are forming a training/adventure business, Rifle Creek Tactical. This sets up for exciting stories to come with a group of beefy hunks and fierce women. One woman is Avery. Strong, smart, capable with a softer side that’s taken a hit in the romance department. Mason is a dominant hunk with a tortured past but he’s smitten right from the beginning. He’s determined to charm Avery and help her overcome her fears of being hurt again. These two pop off the pages with their intense chemistry. Steamy! I love the romance in this story even if it seems a little insta, but their connection started in the first book so there’s some history there. The suspense in this story was a little weak compared to the previous one. There’s no mystery with the culprit known right from the beginning. It’s all danger and craziness when the attacks on Avery ramp up to a deadly conclusion. I love the characters in these stories and look forward to the next one with Braxton and Tate’s sister, Tala. This is a quick, easy read with a terrific backdrop in the small town of Rifle Creek and fabulous characters. Worth the read.
