This was, IMO, the best one of the series so far. The most coherent story line (even though there was a little bit of a "perfect storm" of bad guys) and a romance that's been building since book 1.

Once again, though, the secondary romance became more compelling than the primary one, for me. This has happened in every book, it seems. I have no complaints about how Kid and Nikki's romance played out, so maybe I'm just fascinated with beginnings? In any case, I really enjoyed Travis's development a

This is one Steele Street installment that definitely should not be read as a stand-alone. Kid and Nikki have been scene stealers since the first book, and the author has been doing a magnificent job of leaving the reader wanting more of this dynamite couple. Their book was highly anticipated, and while it wasn’t exactly the showpiece I was expecting, it didn’t necessarily disappoint, either.

Kid is a very different character to the other Steele Street heroes. His entry to the SDF (Special Defens
I was really looking forward to Kid and Nikki's story. While not bad, it just didn't quite live up to my expectations. I'm not sure I like almost half the book being taken up with the secondary storyline in preparation for a future book. I would rather understand the main characters better with just a hint of future plot lines. Janzen pretty much splits it right down the middle. In this book, while the other story was intriguing, it really did take away from the overall interest.
Two-haiku review:

He's avenged brother
She thinks he's all done with her
Bad guys after both

Book four of series
Alternating plot, sub-plot
Setting up more books
I didn't enjoy this as much as the first 3 books. Kid was so detached to the point of unfeeling. I hated how he treated Nikki and felt that she should just move on. I was totally not feeling the lurve here.

The introduction to Travis and Jane thing was very intriguing though. Heading to Skeeter's story next.

I have been dying to read this book ever since this couple was first introduced in Crazy Hot. WHENEVER these two are on the same page of a book, the book might as well burst into flames...that's how intense and passionate these two are. So much so, that any other couple in their midst is completely overshadowed.

Kid and Nikki were destined for each other since their first meeting. Since then Kid has lost his brother in a brutal fashion, they've been separated more than they've been together, and
Mrs. Badass
Not what I wanted for Kid and Nikki, who we have been following since book one. It was a good addition to the series, but lagged in places, and the main couple was overrun by Travis and Jane. Speaking of Travis and Jane's storyline, I really liked the Rats :P
Danielle Taylor
So this book was just good for me. Kid had a lot of potential but I just don't think it played out as well as I would have liked it to. I expected Kid to have more difficulty dealing with the fallout from his brother's death and his revenge and killing spree. It just seemed he was able to put it behind him and move on with Nikki a bit too easily.

This book had all the usual action and drama and gun battles and is certainly entertaining but I had a couple of issues with this book that made it not

The Steele Street series just keeps getting better and better. Each book builds on the previous ones and you really need to read in order. Fast pace and hot romance, a really great book. Lot of interesting characters and situations.

Kid Chaos and Nikki keep running into each other and each time they do, Bang!, it is straight to the sex. Kid has been out of the country taking down bad ass drug dealers in Columbia for 7 months. Nikki is tired of waiting on him, he has made no contact with her is al

This is the Steele Street book I was waiting for since the first book. Since my first glimpse of the electric, unforgettable connection between Kid Chaos and Nikki. These were two characters who were so different, so charismatic together, and whose love story became more weighty, more important with each book, every near miss, and every heartbreak. Forewarning, do NOT read this one without having read the others. You could, but you'd miss SO much. These two deserve the bits of their stories in t ...more

Alright so right away I feel myself grinning as Kid comes into the picture, he is such a great character. I can only be described as Uber excited to read this book Oooh, I dare anyone not to be moved when Janzen writes that he has two gold rings on a silver necklace around his neck. (They belong to Nikki's parents and if you read the previous stories you will understand the significance of this)
When Nikki and Kid meet up again there is instant chemistry between them and they jump right into bed

Kid Chaos is finishing up his mission in South America. He’s been gone for seven months. Before heading back to Steele Street, he needs some R&R in Panama, to get his head back on straight. But when he arrives at his house, it doesn’t take him long to spot the little bikini that should not be there. Even quicker, he figures out who it belongs to. Nikki. Seven months, why hadn’t he called her for seven months? He is still deeply in love with her. But how does she feel? In addition to struggli ...more

Every time I pick up one of Tara Janzens novels, I want to kick myself for waiting so long to read the next book in the series! They're so good! And they're great, IMO, for getting out of reading slumps ( where nothing you pick keeps your attention)!

In crazy kisses, I have to say, I loved the hero, Kid! He was awesome! So kick ass, so tough but still honorable, such a good guy, and devoted, so devoted to his heroine! I think he's one of my all around favorite heroes!

The heroine, Nikki...was an a

Professional soldier Kid Chronopolous moves in stealth and shadow to take out the worldâs deadliest threats. Now, after barely surviving a hair-raising mission in South America, the Special Defense Forces agent comes home to Panama City for some sorely needed R & Râand finds a bikini bottom that can belong to only one woman.

Nikki McKinney has never forgiven Kid for vanishing from her life after the mind-blowing passion they shared. Now heâs su

We know what's been happening between Kid and Nikki right from Book #1, and this one is just like the first three, UNPUTDOWNABLE! Totally wicked! Action, right from the get-go and doesn't let up. Just when you're given a moment to breath, something happens to get your pulse racing again - in more ways than one. No matter how many times you read it, the men are still trying to protect the women, figuring that if they aren't in your life, you're perfectly safe. Not So! Ever! We know right from the ...more
I have been waiting for this one for a while. While there was never a question of chemistry between Kid and Nikki, it was more of a question of would/could Kid stay around to explore the possibilities between them.

I liked that Nikki tried to go on with her life after Kid left, especially when she never heard from him. I also loved then when it really came to make a choice Nikki ran.

I was annoyed that Kid couldn't send her a message some how. It would have been so easy, just do something. I can a

Still loving the Steele Street series from Tara Janzen and this story of Kid and Nikki has been a long time coming. These two made a steamy connection in book 1 but have been separated ever since because of Kid’s vengeance. He’s finished his assignment and is getting ready to come home to Colorado but needs to make a quick stop in Panama City for some R&R. Little does he know but Nikki is already there staying at his condo for a few days to try and reevaluate the choices in her life. But dan ...more
I wanted to like the book more because of Nikki and Kid. Well, I didn't.

At the beginning, we met a new character, C. Smith Rydell. I didn't care for him much. (but I will in book #6)

The reunion between Kid and Nikki was kind of weird and fake. Then, they run for their lives, get back to Colorado and the bad guys follow. I found myself waiting for the bad guys to make their move so Nikki and Kid could fix their relationship.

The fiance thing was pointless but there are some good moments. (I'm th

I don't care for this style of writing where most of the story is told through the characters thoughts. After about fifty pages I started skimming all but dialogue and found I was skipping chapters so I gave up and didn't finish. Secret agent Kid is badly wounded and when he returns to a friends house to recover he finds the love of his life Nikki.
Apr 04, 2014 Kathy rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
This was probably my least favorite of the steel street series. I generally love the books and have read them through more than once. I just find the Nikki/Kid pairing to be the least satisfying as far as dialogue and the couple's relationship outside of the hot and heavy scenes.
I feel kind of cheated with this book. Almost half of it was spent on Travis and Jane and setting up for their story. There was not near enough Kid and Nikki for me. It was like, we already knew they were going to end up together because of the previous books so there was not any building of the relationship, it was more working through. And while I like the working through parts, it just felt a little less than I would have liked because it had so much else going on. I realize that Travis and J ...more

I liked this book. It was great seeing Kid & Nikki get their happy ending. We have seen their relationship grow from the first book in this series. Having Skeeter and Travis show up made it even better.

i have this entire series in paperback, but when this one book was free for kindle i snagged it and reread it again! it never fails to please. the hero is a man tortured by his brother's horrific death at the hands of a columbian drug cartel lord, and he goes on a revenge-driven mission to eliminate al lthose who had a hand in his brother's death. the heroine is a woman he dearly loves and is now put in danger just by being associated with him.

this author is terrific--her characters are complex

I was a little disappointed as I've been waiting for this story since reading the first book in the series and it didn't quite live up to expectations.

What I enjoyed:
* I really like both Kid and Nikki and they obviously belong together.
* The rats storyline was interesting.
* Skeeter is a blast as always.
* The ending was cute - I love the deal.

What could have been better:
* There was too much time spent on Travis and Jane
* Kid spent most of the book telling himself he didn't deserve Nikki and that
