The little tomboy who’d followed him and his brothers around is now grown up and drop-dead gorgeous, and he finds himself thinking about her in ways he’d never done before.

Whisper, North Carolina, where she’d spent her childhood summers, is the

The second in the Malone Brothers series is a riveting and action packed tale of the crime variety. In this story not only does Sean find his happily ever after but we learn more about the Malone family. Fighting crime never looked this good.

Arc received in exchange for an honest review.

Holy freakin hell, where do I start? So it may be said that I am biased, but I love Samantha Cole and her talent for writing never ceases to amaze me. I have read all of Ms Cole’s stories from the very 1st Trident Security book, so when she released the sexy Malone brothers series I knew it would be up there just like those Trident men.

Amazing book for the second in the series. I think this is the best one so far. Sean's story has a lot of twist and turns. Some scary parts at the end. Both the main characters are very strong and you just want them to be together. This book you could read as a stand alone, however at the end Samantha kind of beings KC back into the story. In the end she also starts to put more of a story to the uncle as well. I started reading and could not put down. Samantha is a strong author and her writing ...more

Sean and Gracie grew up together but she looks nothing like the teen he remembers. Meanwhile in town...there is a serial killer doing really bad things to women.

I really enjoyed this one. This is a first from this author, and I will look for more. The serial killer part was suspenseful and the romance part was fun. I enjoyed this very much. I especially like that it is located in NC and I felt that the area was familiar to me.

** Advanced copy was kindly provided by the author, but that has not influenced my review**

Book 2 of a series based on the 3 Malone Brothers.... this book is Sean's story with Gracie Whitman. Another, cute story, and once again I was more caught up in the suspense of the story. I feel that the suspense was even more intense with this one, which I really enjoyed. This book is more of a friend to love story, but once again tame in comparison to Samantha's Trident series, which I'm still okay with,

Awesome book!!

This is part two of the Malone brothers but can be read as a stand alone. I loved Sean's story!! He is a tough FBI agent with a heart of gold! Grace is a sweet woman who will make you want to be like her! Great story of their relationship!

This series is definitely on my favourites list. Having met the oldest Malone brother in the first book, we now get to meet Sean the youngest brother. Tall, dark and sexy this FBI agent has come home to be near his family and is reunited with a niece of a friend of his uncle Dan. She's all grown up and Sean is rather taken with her. Despite the happy reunion there's a serial killer in their town. This book is full of drama, intrigue and some very steamy love. Now I can't wait for Brian's book.

I am loving the Malone brothers stories.

We meet Sean who has moved back to North Carolina to be closer to family. He is enjoying some time when his vacation is interrupted by a serial killer. The local police ask him to step in. Grace is the girl who grew up being friends with the Malone brothers. She is not longer a little girl and gets Sean's attention. As they renew their friendship and so much more the days and night get more exciting.

The Devil's Spare Change is the second book in Samantha A. Cole's vanilla series, The Malone Brothers. This is a suspenseful, gripping thriller that skilfully combines a sweet romance with a hunt for a deranged serial killer. The book works well as a standalone, but I'd recommend reading book one first as it is so good! I think this is one of Ms Cole's best books (which is really saying something), it is quite simply outstanding. I really liked how we were given insights into the killers thought ...more

FBI agent Sean Malone transferring to a division back home in North Carolina so he can be closer to his family.

Grace Whitman is just moving into town and starting up her own Physical Therapy Center. Growing up she spent her summers with her Aunt there.

Sean is very pleasantly surprised that little Gracie is all grown up. The two get to know each other again.

While Sean is on vacation between job transfers he is asked by the Sheriff to help in a horrific murder. It quickly turns out to be the mark

I’m not sure what to start with this review. I finished the book last night and my heart is still pounding.

Sean and Grace’s story was such a great one but the content in this book was amazing.

Sean has been asked to help out on a case even though he is on vacation, but it’s not just any case, this one is hard core.

The way in which the story unfolded was excellent. No imagination needed, it was all there for you to read. Each word written, every chapter read, you are in that book with them.

Sean is the youngest Malone brother and is an FBI agent. On a rest break before starting a new position in Greenville... his life is about to change... forever!!!
Grace is Bonnie's neice and is back in town after 14 years. Growing up around the Malone brothers was an experience in itself... but what will

The second book in Samantha A Cole's Malone Brothers Series is outstanding, I loved it. Sean is hot and all man but is also gentle, his family is the most important thing in the world as far as he is concerned. Grace is also gentle and loving, she wants to be back at her roots. This is exciting with lots of suspense, but there is a great group support and friendship in solving the mystery. The mix between crime and romance was just right and not overdone, the violen

Another great story by Samantha Cole. This is Book 2 of the Malone Brothers & can be read as a stand alone. You miss out on some of the history of you don't read Take the Money & Run but you aren't lost.

Samantha creates such terrific main characters & puts them in life or death situations. The men are strong, tough alpha men that can show sensitive sides when they fall & fall hard. The women are strong & sexy. The plot moved at the perfect pace so that we could see Sean & Grace falling in love

This is the 2nd book in the Malone Brothers series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

Grace & Sean have known one another most of their lives. Growing up together still never prepares you for that one meeting. The one where you come back after time apart and get blown away by a sexy hot bod.

Sean's move and vacation plans are blown when he is asked to help with a local case of murder. He is more than attra

I absolutely loved this book. Sean and Gracie have known each other for a long time but lost touch. When he sees her now, he sees what a beautiful woman she has become and Gracie sees Sean though "grown up" eyes. Sean is an FBI agent who is suppose to be on vacation but he becomes involved in a case trying to find a serial killer before he strikes again. Of course, that puts kinks into him trying to romance Gracie. LOL. I loved the way the story flowed. It was very easy to get completely lost in ...more

Just another book that will blow your socks off from this author!! I literally stalk this author just to see when she has a new book coming out. The Trident Security series is amazing so if you haven't read them then you most definitely should. This is a completely separate series with all new characters. Sexy alpha men and kick ass women. While this is technically book 2 you can read them as standalones, however I suggest starting with the first one just because first of all it's amazing and th ...more

I loved the first book in the series and thought there was no way she could improve on that book. How wrong was I!

The Devils Spare Change, follows the youngest Malone brother Sean, who is an FBI Agent. He moves back to Whisper and is staying at his uncles cabin by the sea. Along comes Gracie, they had been friends for years but lost touch when they both moved away. Having family that live in the area brings them together at a evening dinner.

Sean Malone is just taking a short vacation before starting in a new FBI office closer to his family when a blast from his past in the form of Gracie Whitman comes back into his life.

I love romantic suspense, and Samantha Cole more than delivers. The Malone Brothers are handsome alpha males that love and protect their ladies. Sean has moved home to be closer to his growing family. With a little bit of time before starting his job, Sean is staying at his Uncle's beach house when a gorgeous blonde shows up for dinner. She is no other than little Grace that was a teenager the last time he saw her. She is no teenager anymore but a beautiful woman. Will his family understand his ...more

Book 2 in the Malone Brothers series is the latest and greatest read from author Samantha A. Cole. Grace Whitman and Sean Malone knew each other during childhood. Time and a career in Physical Therapy for Grace and a career in the FBI for Brian has them both appreciating maturity.

A serial killer threatens to get in the way of their happiness. Will Sean and the other LEO's solve their case in time? Pick up The Devil's Spare Change today to find out!!
