Sum It Up! Fast paced, fun and a couple sexy scenes (but nothing over the top).

 What could be worse than having a long-over affair with your boss-the governor-hit the headlines? Professional and personal exile. Banished from the state capital to ride out the media storm in Shadow Valley, Montana, Megan Archer is tasked with promoting cooperation between local police and the federal agents investigating the area's drug trade.

When she's rescued from a near-drowning by handsome Joe Cody, Megan thinks things might be looking up. Until she finds out that her savior is an alleged drug kingpin and head of a notorious crime family. Yes, Joe has an edge, but the attraction between them is too intense to resist. She refuses to believe that the guy who saved her is a criminal.

Megan has a responsibility to the law, but in this case a job well done might mean Joe's downfall. And as Megan uncovers more secrets, it becomes clear that Joe's not the only one in town who can't be trusted. Something's rotten in Shadow Valley... (Goodreads)

I am not sure if I have ever stated my opinion about women that poach on other women...but I was prepared not to like Megan. Thankfully, the "affair" was over three years earlier and the man in question was separated from his wife. The only problem was that it was uncovered years after it was over and he re-united with his wife. So...Megan is sent to review the inter-departmental issues between FBI, DEA, Customs and the local police.

There was a lot going on in the beginning of this book and I found my mind a bit overwhelmed with details. But once I got into the story and just let Joe Cody steal my heart...I loved it. Megan took some time for me to like, but she was overall, fine. Joe is da bomb! He is handsome, a rumored bad boy, tight lipped and elusive. All the things I love in a hero. Add to that, two honest hardworking cops and drug trade that seems to be escalating.

Megan and Joe work together with the cops to help the community rid itself of the growing Meth problem...but who to trust becomes very grey as the bad guys are good and the good guys bad and then...are they really. Fast paced, fun and a couple sexy scenes (but nothing over the top). Enjoy!
