McKenna Sloan saved Lucas Kane’s life and then vanished. Lucas moved mountains trying to find her again, and finally McKenna relented—for one fleeting night. The truth is, McKenna’s life is all about the dark, deception-filled world of Last Chance Rescue, and for her, there’s no hope of love or Lucas. But fate, and Lucas’s determination, soon change everything. A kidnapped young woman, a lure to out a killer and the fierce need to bring a criminal to justice combine for one explosive event. For a woman who specializes in staying away from relationships and staying in the heart of danger, this is the most impossible mission of all. Because the odds are deadly, and the passion won’t die.

I couldn’t wait to start this book because I found McKenna to be fascinating in No Chance. It definitely didn’t disappoint.

Quick summary

It was speculated that McKenna had a seriously troubling backstory and seemed to be on the run. Everyone’s instincts were correct but they couldn’t have imagined how tragic her story really is. When she rescued Lucas Kane after having been kidnapped by Victor Lymes, he was determined to find this woman who he never could get out of his head. He makes it his mission to track her down to thank her and, maybe, just maybe, clear his mind of the woman who they called Ghost.


What I loved about this story

Everything. It begins with the reveal of just how Lucas was rescued and Victor was killed. That opens a whole new set of intrigue and it just never ends in this story. Lucas wasn’t even what he seemed on the surface. Both he and McKenna were two of the most interesting, enigmatic characters I’ve read. Loved him, loved her and loved them together. Their relationship was developed carefully, creating a pretty sensual romance in the midst of all the chaos. Damon, McKenna’s ex, was deliciously evil, his unpredictability keeping tension extremely high. While there’s a lot in motion, it’s all so interconnected you can’t get confused.


The bottom line

I love this series as it consistently delivers great suspense and romance with every story. This one is probably close to being my favorite, at least a neck-and-neck second. I’ve a new book boyfriend in Lucas Kane and McKenna is one kickass heroine. And, the ending was pretty special.

About Christy Reece

Growing up in a tiny Alabama community boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn’t thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart. After years of talking to the characters in her head, she finally decided to write the stories they had been telling her. Now, she and her characters couldn’t be happier.

Christy lives in Alabama with her husband, five incredibly cute but precocious canines, and one very shy turtle.

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
