Series: A Kingpin Love Affair #3
Author: J.L. Beck
Release Date: April 7, 2015
A book where the romance is just as dangerous as the crime….
FBI Agent Devon Mitchell is trying everything he can to move on with his life.
Except he can’t.
After losing the one person he loved more than life itself, he struggles to carry on with the guilt and burden of letting her go. When a new assignment in his old hometown lands on his desk, he can’t help but feel drawn to it.
Drawn to her...
But this isn't a case he was assigned, but a secret undercover mission that could ruin his career if his cover is blown.
Tegan Anderson wishes for a normal life. Pushing her way through college, she finds herself in dead end relationship number three—except this time, the guy is into something far more dangerous than your usual twenty-three-year-old is involved in.
Drugs, dirty money, and casino debts are just a few things her ex has found himself wrapped up in.
When the people he owes money come looking for him, she finds herself in a situation that could be the difference between life and death.
With the odds stacked against them, and a herd of angry men after them, can Devon and Tegan survive the mayhem that is about to ensue? Can they overcome the past or will it shatter both of them?
ADD TO GOODREADS
This is the third book in J.L. Beck’s Kingpin series. This one can be read as a standalone, but I recommend that you read the first two books prior to reading this one. The main characters in this book aren’t the same as the first two, but Zerro and Bree (main characters in Indebted and Inevitable, are in this book as supporting characters). This book takes place a couple years after Inevitable ends. This is a great read. It’s fast paced and has action, both violent and sexual. You will be wondering what is going to happen next while reading this book. There are twists, turns, and surprises.
Devon Mitchell is an FBI agent. We actually met him in Inevitable when he helped Zerro and Bree. Zerro is now his partner in the FBI. Who would have thought that a month long, forced vacation would flip his world upside down. He had a rough childhood, his parents are drug dealers. The only good thing was Tegan, his high school sweetheart. He loved her with everything he had, but he left her to keep her safe. He didn’t think he was good enough for her and she deserved more.
He ends up back in his hometown because he stumbled upon some papers on his way out of the office to start his vacation. He figures Tegan is long gone and has what she deserves.
Boy is he wrong!
Tegan has been pulled into something horrible because of her ex boyfriend. She keeps being betrayed by those she loves.
These two go back and forth about having a new relationship or not. I was hoping it would work out, but honestly, I didn’t know if it would or not.
“You stop time, baby, and you allow me to truly feel what it feels like to be loved by someone like you. And I want to do the same for you. I don’t want to be the one who turned his back on you anymore. I want to be the man you always wanted because you have always been the woman I have needed.”
When everything goes down with the bad guys, I was on the edge of my seat hoping they both came out alive.
There is one thing that I am still curious about though. What exactly Caroline’s role in this was and why she would do that to her best friend?
This is a great read. I loved the little flashbacks that Devon and Tegan had.
