For Gabriel, the FBI is just a painful memory. His new team of motorheads may work for the Feds undercover, but they’re nothing like the backstabbers and bureaucrats he left behind. Hunting drug dealers and smugglers in Miami gets him the adrenaline rush he wants and the justice he needs. All that’s missing is the seal on the badge—and Nikki, his sexy ex-partner.
Until she shows up at his garage, wearing short shorts and a look that spells trouble. Nikki has never forgotten the heartbreak Gabriel left her with last time. Even if she can’t have him, she still has to work with him. There’s a homegrown terrorist recruiting military vets to a cult of fear and deception, and they all have roots in Miami.
It will take Gabriel and all the Classic Rides crew to stop a catastrophe. But in close quarters with sparks flying, it’s only a matter of time before the old flame ignites . . .
This book was a little unbalanced for me. The relationship between Gabriel (Gabe) and Nikki was interesting, although it seemed like it was reliant on their past history, and I never completely believed the current relationship was actually in the present.
I also thought the suspense/action plot of the book got in the way of the relationship. The book was not as balanced as I wanted it to be and I felt that the shifts from a focus on their relationship to the action was off and it pulled me out of the story.
The book is a standalone and I did not feel I needed to read the other stories to be able to connect, rather I felt like I needed more from this one for it to be engaging.
I am not able to recommend this book.
