SWAT Captain Michael Cutler's pulse was racing. He should have been thinking about the intense hostage crisis he'd just diffused. But he couldn't keep his mind off of "her"--Jillian Masterson, the leggy brunette who had come to him for protection from an obsessive stalker. He certainly hadn't been looking for love, especially with someone fifteen years his junior. But thei ...more

Someone is sending Jillian Masterson love letters. The creepy kind. And the "message" is underlined with roses and beaten up and dead people. Really not something every girl wishes for.

Coupled with her attraction to SWAT Captain Michael Cutler, older, mature...and father of one of her PT patients, Jilly has a really shitty week.

After the slightest disappointment of Beauty and the Badge, Ms. Miller returns in her usual style with yet another amazing installment in her ongoing series about the KCP

3.5 stars. Again, I want half stars!

The heroine, Jillian, is a physical therapist with a ‚certain past’. Jillian is attracted to Michael Cutler – he’s the dad of one of her patients. SWAT Team Captain Michael Cutler had no intention to fall in love again. Certainly not someone 15 years his junior. Michael and Jillian get pretty close, when Michael discovers that Jillian is being stalked...

I have to admit that I wanted to rea
Terrific book. I've already read the Precinct:SWAT books, so I enjoyed going back and reading Captain Michael Cutler's story. At the beginning of the book, we see him as the worried single dad, concerned about his son's physical therapy progress. Jillian is the physical therapist. She has developed what she feels is a crush on Michael (he is 15 years older than she is), Michael has noticed her as a woman, but the age difference bothers him. When he finds out about her stalker, he goes into prote ...more
This was a really great story! I don't read many Harlequin Intrigues, almost not all. I'm glad I read this one on a friend recommendation.

He pressed his thumb against the soft pink swell of her lips and the desire to claim those beautiful lips throbbed inside him. “Sweetheart, I’m fifteen years older than you. But I’m sure not feeling like a daddy watching out for his little girl.

This was a sweet little book. Completely forgettab
I loved this story. I am a sucker for a heroine who has overcome her tough past and made something of herself. She helps others, loves her family and is so great. Love the hero too. Protective yet strong and just a good man!

I have a confession to make, before I review Takedown. I don't read the back covers of my favorite authors, and I don't read the cast of characters listed in the front of the book. With one eye open I will glance at the book list to make an attempt at reading the books in order. That being said I have read Julie Miller's Precinct books completely out of order, which in most cases doesn't matter but with Takedown at the very least try to read Kansas City Christmas first, or better yet all of The ...more

Another Hit

Once again Ms. Miller books have the right combination of action and romance. I love it. This and all of her books are a must read get it today!
Noelle Walsh
This book was good. It had a good dose of mystery, romance and intrigue to keep me interested. I myself enjoy a good SWAT story every once in a while and this was good.
Honestly, I didn't expect to like Jillian's story because I haven't cared for her up till this point, but I was won over. Great story and great romance.
Not a bad book. A little cheesy in my opinion, but all in all it was a good read.
