This book didn't work for me for several reasons first of all it was too "out" there, the whole island with rules, the pagan thing, none of it was my thing. The heroine is from the Secret Service and someone featured in the author's last book. She likes to go by the name Goose since her real name Maria brings back bad memories.

The hero Rush was a SEAL sniper slowly getting into the land of living after leaving the army. The very first day Maria makes a move on him but Rush stops it since he want
Very cute! Great back and forth banter, loved the inner dialogue Goose has and it was refreshing to read about a guy who's so straight forward and honest. Rush says exactly what he's feeling and thinking and I loved it. Fun story!
I really enjoyed this one!

I was on page 36 and totally in love with the sexual chemistry and sarcastic banter between Goose and Rush. Sure they’d just met, he was a suspect she was investigating, and she sure didn’t like the way he was making her feel...all hot and bothered under the collar. And she may not have been 100% professional or acting appropriately when she coped a feel but I loved it. And I loved even more that Rush shut her down and his reasons why. Most men think and act with the li

Rush Guthrie left the Navy SEALS and came back to Mishkwa, Minnesota to find his humanity again. He tries to find peace living on the small island in Lake Superior. There he works as a park ranger, and is doted on by his Aunt Lila. He is slowly recovering his to his old self. But trouble lurks when Secret Service agent Maria “Goose” di Guzman shows up on the island to investigate him. Rush finds himself intrigued by the polishe
This book turned out to be a surprise. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it since it was vastly different from the previous Money, Honey except that we were introduced to Agent Maria "Goose" di Guzman. However, I found that by the end, it was a delightful surprise!

No doubt that the best parts of the book were between Maria and Rush. Their dialogue was amusing at the start of the book but moved to intense and heartfelt by the end. By the time they revealed their feelings for each other, I was

When Secret Service agent Maria “Goose” diGuzman arrives on Mishkwa Island in Lake Superior, ostensibly to investigate the local park ranger for his subversive political agenda, it takes her about thirty minutes for deep-seated attraction to grip her and refuse to let her go. It also takes that long for her to know beyond a doubt that ranger Rush Guthrie is as far from subversive as a man can get.
Rush is a former Navy SEAL who has come home to the tiny island in order to exorcise demons left fro
I found this book cute. There wasn't much hot and heavy action but I didn't mind. This book was mostly about two people coming to terms with themselves and their past. The characters were so easy to get to know and it was so wonderfully written that you got inside the head of each character making your reading experience that much pleasurable. Obviously this is another romantic novel and it was good. A mystery/thriller, but given the setting it's not one that will keep you on your toes since the ...more
I really enjoyed Money, Honey--the author's debut novel. In Money, Honey, we met Goose, the heroine of this novel.

I can't quite put my finger on why this is "just ok" for me. I may not have been in the mood for flowery prose. Sey tends to use too many adjectives and over-describe/use too many adverbs. Sometimes the moment and characters just call for all those words. And sometimes run-ons can just get too annoying.

It wasn't just the prose, though. I could not connect with Goose, the heroine, who
Just an OK read, but sort of a waste of time for me. 1 1/2 stars, I didn't despise it or want to burn it which I consider a 1 star, it was well written enough, but not quite a 2.

I didn't really care about any of the characters, didn't connect with even one, good or bad, to feel for them in the story. I never really got into the story either, it just never caught my interest. She was a secret service agent investigating the hero because of a threat he made on the Governor of Minnesota- which was

This is even better than Money Honey! Hunky guy, good story, and a happy ending. I LOVED it!
This book was a good, fast read. Rush was kind of wonderful:) I really liked the setting.

I wasn't familiar with S.S. when the cover of Money Shot caught my eye from the library shelf and led me to read the blurb, which led me to borrow it. So glad! Goose and Rush scope out each other and the community in ways that seem true to mmodern life without being cookie cutter caricatures of "the independent woman" and "reticent ex-military man". The cast of characters, community backstory, and mix of serious and absurd issues are really entertaining.

Will defnitely explore her backlist and lo
This book was so hard to keep reading. I didn't really feel the chemistry between the characters and the way the hero kept telling the heroine to stop smiling freaked me out a little. The plot moved really slowly and the setting was super awkward. This pagan island is supposed to be isolated while they literally ski to the mainland. The best scene is at the very end and has nothing to do with the romance. Soooo, proceed with caution.
It's started off a bit slow in someways, and in others, made annoying leaps. Wile it is unbelievable that the hero takes ne look at the heroine when she arrives on his snowy northern island and absolutely must have her, there is a terrific and convoluted plot, which, while not unpredictable in its ending, brought cross country skiing, counterfeiting, and pagan religion all together, believably, in one book.

While I found the first in the series very good, this one just didn't work for me. Primarily I felt little tension or chemistry between the hero and heroine. I also didn't care for the mystery plot of a counterfeiter on an island of pagans. Too far-fetched. To be fair I didn't finish the book and things may have picked up after I left off.

It took a bit longer than I expected to connect with the characters and the story, but I'm glad I stuck with it. My patience was rewarded big time by the middle of the book. These complex characters didn't reveal themselves early, but instead, were revealed to the reader while they opened up to each other as their relationship deepened.
I enjoyed the first half of the book, which was lighthearted. Then the book took a turn for a darker tone and I felt like I'd made a wrong turn into a different story. After that I never quite connected to the story again. I usually enjoy this author very much, but this one didn't quite work for me. 2.5/5
Bianca Gogos
It was refreshing to see the hero was not the "cute flirt" but the handsome mysterious guy.

The chemistry between Rush and Maria was electric and even though they were both tough, they were able to help each other through tough issues.

I knew what was coming but was still shocked by the outcome.
Mandi Schreiner
I just can't get into this one. Secret Service heroine comes to investigate hero and makes out with him on first day. Doesn't make sense and the story just isn't pulling me in.

I did enjoy her first book Money Honey and def rec that one.
Anne OK
Quick, fun read. Lots of witty and sarcastic banter going on with the H/H. A bit predictable and somewhat weak plotline but still entertaining.
Not very interesting or engaging novel. Plot was entirely predictable, I kept hoping for a pot twist that never came.
Becky Moore
I really, really loved the main character, Ranger Rush Guthrie. Well written, overall it was enjoyable.
C'est n'importe quoi! (I could translate it but it would be lost in translation.)
Fun, sexy with some seriously messed up characters--my kind of book.

tons of'll enjoy yourself with every page!
