I loved this book, the suspense and the chemistry between Jo and Nate was so sexy and so humorous!
Jo, seems like the average woman. A woman with dreams of opening up her own bakery and inventing many new and different things to bake, such as a coopie, (that's right a cookie in a pie, 🤤🤤🤤). Just a warning to all you sweet tooth readers, this book will make you want all the sweet and chocolates in the World!

All Jolene Carter has ever wanted is to own a bakery of her own. There’s only one problem. Her father, Robert Carter, is a world-renowned art thief and she’s, well, sort of his protégé. But he’s promised her that this next job in New York will be their last, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her dreams... especially not the distractingly delicious FBI agent hot on her tail.
Agent Nate Parker has been on the Robert Carter case for years, and if t ...more

I've never had the pleasure of reading anything by this author but what an epic first experience!
Nate and Jo had a fabulously explosive chemistry with a cat and mouse game between this FBI agent and hacker/Baker. From their first interaction I was hooked! I love a good thriller and a good romance but this was all other elements I love rolled in.
The excitement of the chase, the dangerous threat they faced and heartbreaking drama that brought tears to my eyes all perfectly b ...more
My favorite passage:
“Jo closed here eyes and shook her head, trying to wipe the smile from her face as she imagined the way Agent Parker must have growled when she spent forty-five minute ...more

When first they meet, Nate is such a stickler for the rules and proper procedure and all of that. He doesn't seem as though he'd even be able to contemplate how to break the rules. He even keeps his white shirt buttoned all the way up... while on a boat, supposedly fishing... in the Bahamas. Nate has a trauma ...more
I was worried at first about how a proper federal agent would mesh with a messy daughter of an art thief who had dreams of opening a bakery would play out. Once the story got rolling it was a crazy ride and the story flowed nicely.
Jolene Carter wasn’t as innocent as she may seem. She helped her father out with intel on his heist, but she had bigger dreams of opening a bakery. It was just that though a farfetched dream because she knew living on the run like they did it wouldn’t be ...more

Happy book birthday to Hot Pursuit by Kay Marie! Thank you Kay Marie and Xpresso Book Tours for a free eARC in exchange for an honest review.
Jolene and Nate's story is sassy, sexy, and funny. Jolene has a way of getting under Nate's skin and screwing up his ...more
OMG. I really liked this book. It was the character dynamic and chemistry between the two main characters: Jo Carter and Nate Parker. Talk about opposites attracting.
The story itself, the FBI sting and other stuff, was decent, but it was the chemistry of the two that really got me. I was almost laughing at every moment the two made contact. The romance is slow, but passionate. It is definit ...more
Review – I’m pretty sure this series is going to be on my go-to list for when the next one comes out. I found this book extremely refreshing with a cut and dry plot and distinctive characters. It was an easy read but very robust with intricate details and little accents of humor. I was very impressed and can’t wait for the next book!

Only ONE MONTH until Hot Pursuit goes on sale!! Woohoo! The manuscript is with my editors for a final proofread and then I'll be working on putting the paperbacks and possibly an audiobook together!
I've been sharing a bunch of teasers on my Instagram and Facebook accounts (both are @KaitlynDavisBooks) so I thought I would cross-post a few to Goodreads since the pub day is fast approaching!
PS: The pre-order discount is still going on :)

I read this in one sitting. I haven't left my bedroom all day, and had the kids pick up pizza for dinner. This book grabbed me at the very first, and kept me enthralled all afternoon.
Jo is a fantastic character! She is so rounded, so well thought out, that she is real. She is funny, she is adventurous, and she has deep yearnings and dreams. Nate and Leo are fantastic federal agents. Nate is such a rule follower, except when it comes to Jo. And Leo is his facilitator. I'm ...more
Great spy book, that kept me glued to pages late at night. The writing is amazing, I couldn’t stop reading, the characters, the happenings, it all just jumps from the pages. :) Everything was so vivid in my mind, There is a lot of humour in the story, the pace is fast, there is action non-stop and I just loved it. :)
Master thief's last job and last chance for FBI to catch him in action. Just one problem. Jo.
Jo works with her father and best friend on… jobs. :) She ...more
The heroine is an expert hacker and helps her father and best friend steal priceless artwork. The FBI is hot on their trail with suspected connections to the mafia. Our heroine is anything but typical- she has dreams of owning her own bakery and I instead of hiding from the FBI flaunts herself in their pat ...more
This was the first time I read her book. This book was Great. I really couldn't put this book down. I got to tell you I didn't think I was going to like this book, this much. I thought this book was going to be like the other ones I read. But, it is wasn't. It was Funny in some parts, serious, Love these characters and very Good Book. Love Nate and Jo. Love the parts when Jo ,( wait I can't tell) then that would spoil that part of the book. Or when Nate ( can't say this either). Well o ...more

I liked the way Nate had to bend a few rules to follow his instinct, his heart, and save Jo, but I'm not entirely convinced he could, realistically, break so many rules, especially when he's part of an FBI team. And that made the happy ending a bit too fairy- ...more
Jolene Carter's father is a criminal and she helps him with his heists but dreams of a different life.
Nate Parker is an FBI agent after Jolene's dad.
An unlikely pairing, but their connection is undeniable despite the obvious issues. The author did a great job of building the world and characters. I especially liked that Jolene was intelligent and had her own dreams.
The plot did drag a bit in the middle for me. I liked the concept a lot, ...more
