Enjoyed reading Lars & Tamara's story. I declare Lars kept me all tensed up with his risky antics, lol....he's determined to defy but so glad he found/recognizes his mate. Tamara is in way over her head in her act of vengeance when she bumps into Lars. With drug goons chasing their every move they test their fight/flight options as they try to escape to safety. Action-packed with lots of hot love scenes too!! ;)

Tamara & Lars's story is full of excitement, danger & loving. Tamara is a brave cat Shifter who sets out to avenge her sister's murder. Lars is there to take care of the same person. Has Lars found the one to fill his lonely life? I loved listening to Gregory Salinas narrating. He had a very sexy accent for Lars.

This was great to find out about Lars side of the story. What a great job of bringing these places to life. It brought another level to the story to be able to "see" where they were. I love how the tension builds and keeps you on the edge of your seat and then brings it all to fruition. Have truly enjoyed reading this.
Lars has a job to do and he is waiting for the perfect time. Then he receives a call from his partner telling him to get out now. Something is wrong. Now he has to get back home an

This book is the second book in the Rubicon International series. I have read multiple books from this author, including the first book in this series, and I was not disappointed in this book. This is a standalone. And no cliffhanger at the end though it is open-ended for future books. There is violence and hot steamy shifter sex. Definitely 18+.

The author packed a lot of emotion and action into this read and this story moves fast. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not goi

What a great follow-up on Garen, book 1 of Rubicon International!! I thought I was in love with Garen but Lars is even better. A lonely shifter who has given up on love, he spends his time doing dangerous missions for his company. Little did he know what fate had in store. As in Garen, Ann makes these characters come to life and feel like old friends. Each character is put together painstakingly carefully and the result is seamless. The story is full of danger, love and mystery. The beautiful Ta ...more

I enjoyed the second book in the Rubicon International series. It mixes hot, paranormal men and women with the intriguing career of spies. They risk their lives to terminate those who cause harm to others. The series started with Garen who is Lars' partner in the business. They have worked together for centuries with Lars taking Europe and Garen in America.

Lars is a sexy cat shifter and does remind you of James Bond. He is very cool and sophisticated. When he meets Tamara, he is determined to he

This was a sit on the edge of your seat type of read. It starts out pretty fast paced and keeps it going to the end. Well written and takes you to the places in the story with some great detail. I loved the mix of old and new with this couple. Lars comes from a time where things were different and he has moved to current times but he still has his old world charm. Tamara is younger but comes from an old world family so their values are a lot alike. Now if they can get past the fact that they are ...more

This is the second book in the Rubicon series and I have to say I loved Lars and Tamara's story more than Garen's !! Talk about action packed !! Murder for the Revenge of her sister ? Blown covers, dead cabbies, as well as both of them being big cat shifters who don't know each other at all but have to trust each other to get home safe, and if Lars has his way Tamara's new home will be with him permanently!! So good, each book of Ann Gimpel's I read, no matter which genre, has the best action, h ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lars is book 2 in the Rubicon series. Often times when people are faced with a life or death situation they tend to cling to each and form a bond and it seems a similar scenario is played out in this book even though one is a trained assassin. The author did a wonderful job of providing back stories for both characters and setting up the plot. Tamara has some “weak” moments, but overall is a very strong, well developed heroine with sincere mo

Lars is on a mission when he gets a call to head home. Pleasantly surprised to find out someone has completed his assignment for him, he heads back. But things don't go as planned. He runs into and saves a lovely woman, Tamara. She has several secrets of her own but they are totally drawn to each other.

I love these two, especially the almost fight in the cockpit when they both end up speaking something other than English and can't understand one another. Looking forward to read more from RI if/

Received this book free for an honest review. Lars, Book 2 in the Rubicon International series, is a seamless continuation of action-packed thrills, romance and adventure. I loved this pace of this book and that the author gives you a choice on whether you'd require background information or not to continue reading. It's dangerous, funny and steaming hot! I look forward to future books in this series.

This is the second book in the Rubicon International series. Characters are written that they flow well with each other. Lars has given up on that special someone in his life. He takes on some high risk mission until he meets Tamara. When Tamara goes after the person that killed her sister and destroy Lars cover. The action and suspense with these two will keep you on the edge of your seat. Can Lars finally find some happiness in his dark world? Highly recommend this book
