***Detailed Review***

A solid read with a lot of soul searching.

SLOW HEAT definitely brought this series back to life for me. I was not a fan of RUN WILD. I actually didn’t know there was going to be another book until I just happened to spot it at the bookstore. I just had to give it a try as the back really seemed interesting.

Maggie O’Malley is put into a bad situation with her crooked uncle that has landed her in the hot seat with the police and some crooked law breakers who want her silence

Micah Jones works for KFA, a bounty hunting service. Micah’s latest target is Maggie O’Malley. Maggie just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. She is a book keeper for her Uncle. Unfortunately for Maggie her Uncle is conducting some shady business. Maggie decides to hire Micah to clear her name.

Slow Heat is the latest book in the Bounty Hunters series. I am enjoying this series. Besides, what is not to love about this series…romance, strong male and female leads, and a good stor

A Tasty Read Book Reviews

I love a hero with always makes for a spectacular, heart-breaking black moment...which are my FAVORITE kind!! And Micah not only has secrets, but he is quite the wild man in the bedroom...Oh My! But Maggie was able to hold her own with the big boys, with that Irish/Italian temper and spirit...she gave as good as she got.

This was my first Lorie O'Clare romance, but alas, will not be my last! I am so diggin on these Bounty Hunters and the ladies who fall
Started off okay, and the characters were likeable, but at the end the author seemed in a hurry to tie things up neatly and give the main characters a happy ever after, which didn't ring true to the rest of the story as far as I'm concerned. I would've liked to see the hero be a bit more unsure he could really change so completely, and the heroine be willing to take a chance on their relationship anyway.

The first half of this book is slow, mostly expounding on what a bad pass assassin Micah is. At first I thought Maggie was a classy heroine but then she turned into this termagant with a foul mouth and a violent nature. The second half picks up the pace, the story unfolds, the soul searching and h.e.a. come together nicely.

I really loved this one to. He's use to being on his on. Raised by his father, uncle and grandfather. I'm guessing no real love there except for his training. While hiding out he met his match in the form of a short female who isn't afraid to tell him how she feels. With her he has a lot of first such as smiling and caring. Great book I highly recommend.

This book did nothing for me. I ended up skimming and skipping around. I finally finished it, but don't ask me what it was about.
