Start your review of No Saint (Louisiana Lawmen #2)
‘No Saint’ was a mixed bag for me, though I thought the premise sounded intriguing: sending a rookie officer undercover to investigate another, who might have turned dirty in all his years of experience working in the underbelly of society.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t really buy into the characters at all, even though the beginning started out quite well. I did find Rick easier to sympathise with; his personal vendetta of avenging his brother’s death, his regret about their relationship and his co

I enjoy any book that is based in New Orleans. It is a bonus that this book includes lawmen. There is definitely an undeniable chemistry between the main characters of No Saint. It is fun to read the story as the romance develops between Sin and Rick.

No Saint by Mallory Kane is an action romantic suspense story that looks at the seedier side of New Orleans that tourists hopefully never see. The action is brisk throwing a rookie and a seasoned undercover cop together. They must survive so that they can solve the case bringing down the bad guys. The beginning has a changed up from the usual in bringing the two main characters together; making for an excellent start to the book.

Undercover Detective Rick Easterling has seen plenty of the lowlife

This book is about an undercover cop trying to determine who is responsible for bad dope being distributed on the streets which has resulted in some deaths, including that of his estranged gay brother. His assignment has him working as a bar man. Unbeknownst to him, his seniors are concerned that he might have turned dirty himself so they have placed a female undercover cop in the same bar to monitor his movements.
The storyline itself held a lot of promise and the lead guy - Rick - was a really

This book had me on the edge of my seat and I had trouble putting it down. I really got into the story.

Detective Rick Easterling and rookie police officer Lusinda Johnston are both working undercover at a bar in New Orleans. Rick is investigating what the city is calling the Bad Dope Murders, people dying from contaminated heroin. Sin was recruited by the New Orleans Bureau of Integrity to investigate Rick because he is thought to be a dirty cop and has something to do with the murders. Even tho

**I was kindly provided with an ARC by the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

I requested No Saint from NetGalley as I really liked the premise of this story. But sadly I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected too.

Don't get me wrong though, it was an ok story and the main characters likable. It just never really captured or held my interest and unfortunately there were large parts of this story that didn't really work for me. Including the fact there wasn't much suspense.

This is a gripping and suspenseful story full of twists and surprises. The romance between Rick and Sin adds an exciting element to a brilliant storyline. Rick is a brave, determined and caring man who is emotionally stubborn. Sin is a naive, brave, confused and independent woman who is determined to take down a dirty cop. Only she's not convinced that he's guilty. They have to fight their attraction because it complicates an already complicated situation. But they are perfect for each other, be ...more

I didn't really enjoy this one. The overall premise of the story is solid but I never really connected with the characters nor did feel any connection between Rick and Lucinda. Lucinda just seemed immature and out of her league trying to investigate a "bad cop" and some of the things she does are really quite childish. Rick on the other hand is suppose to be this hard nose out for revenge cop with plenty of experience. I couldn't understand what he could ever find appealing in Lucinda. Perhaps i ...more
I voluntarily read a advanced reader's copy of this book

No Saint by Mallory Kane, book two in the Louisiana Lawmen series, A great addition to the series. I enjoyed the characters especially Lucinda who is a rookie undercover cop who gets sent to investigate another undercover cop Rick who is working on another investigation. The unexpected happens. It had a interesting storyline and great dialogue. Look forward to reading future books in this series.

Shelves: romance
I liked the two lead characters. Their background stories played well into the events of the book, and they were a nice, if sometimes combative, match. Lust probably turned to love a bit too abruptly, but it's good for an escapist read.
A nice read for a lazy day off.
