Braden Kane is former Ivy League, former military, current FBI who frequently works undercover and secret ops and he has met some very unscrupulous characters in his career. He knows that there is a fine line between vigilantism, crime and justice. Sometimes all is not as it seems on the surface.
Nora Murphy is his FBI partner. She is a strong, independent agent who can hold her own at a crime scene. She is badass and kickass and isn’t afraid to show off her confidence. Regardless of her abilitie

Rogue Love is book one in Michelle St James' new series Kings of Corruption. It seems to be a spin-off of another series, but you can follow the story just fine without having read any of her other work.

Everything you need to know is right in front of you.

I did enjoy the relationship between Braden and Nora. I loved how protective he was of her. I also admired how he stuck to his guns about his beliefs, even knowing what it could cost him. He had enough of regret. And enough of playing by the ru

I voluntarily accepted an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

I really loved this book! But I wanted more! Nora and Braden are so hot for each other but they can't act on those feelings because of work. Then, Braden quits...and you know what happens next. And it's good...so good!
But besides the coupling, there actually is more to the story. I love the intrigue of the bureau mystery and how both lead characters have such love and respect for each other even though they may have to sacrifi

Can they survive it?

Simply Rogue Delicious 😋

I always knew there was this conflict within Braden Kane and whether he was serving the right side of the law/justice. I didn't expect him to be oh so delicious though. His strength, resolve and dedication to justice rather than being on the right side of the law is what ultimately brought him peace of mind and his girl. Loved and I now have a new book boyfriend to love. Watch out Nico 😉

Enjoyable but not nearly as good as Mob Bosses (Nico, Pharrell, Christophe). Kinda dragged out then, boom, the end. Felt unfinished and left a lot of questions. Hoping to get some answers in Rebel Love but since this is Locke's book not sure...

Loved this story! Braden was introduced throughout the Syndicate stories and I always wondered about him.... and now we know. Nora has known Braden since their training at Quantico and as coworkers they both, unknowingly, hid their attraction. He is super hot, she is a woman who can hold her own and they both have badges.

What do you do when you find out one of your FBI coworkers may be dirty.... what lengths would you go to...

What will happen when Braden and Nora are no longer on the same side?

Suspense and steamy - love it!!

Had an ARC review. What a scorcher of a story to start another great series by Michelle. I loved reading and discovering the person behind Brandon Kane. The intertwined stories between this and "The Boss" series is brilliant but I also like the fact you could read it as a standalone. No spoilers from me but I can say for sure you won't be disappointed.
Bring on Logan!! Can't wait to read next book.

FBI agent Braden Kane has always given his all to bring down the bad guys, to right wrongs, and ensure that justice is served. But if time and experience has taught him anything, it's that the line between right and wrong, between black and white, is sometimes very blurry.

Agent Nora Murphy lives by the letter of the law. Fueled by the losses in her past and a code of ethics that she's inherited, she operates in a world where the right way is the only way.

Romantic suspense is one of my favorite

Working for the FBI can be one very dangerous job, but when you decide to resign because you feel like someone in the Bureau isn't following the rules, well things just got a lot more interesting. Braden has been a loyal agent through the tough and ugly, even when he became friends with members of the Syndicate. He never thought about being on the other side of the law, bringing down criminals in unlawful ways. However when it becomes clear that someone inside the Bureau is dirty, Braden makes i ...more
