it was amazing

**I received a copy of this book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review**

B.J. Carelton is an ATF agent who wants to stop the flow of guns and drugs over the border from Mexico but a sassy librarian may be his toughest lady he'll ever have to deal with. Through the support of the Rowdy's town council, Cassie Snowden, she reluctantly allows the ATF agents access to the libraries computer to track down a local resident who is selling weapons to the cartel. Unfortunately, Karl Abbott is using the computers to selling the newest version of the AR 15 rifle that the cartel wants desperately. He's also become a bit of a stalker towards Cassie since she moved back to Rowdy after her husband's death.

Cassie's husband was a Texas State officer, who was killed under somewhat suspicious cloud and she wants to know why after his death there was a notebook and an account with money that she didn't know about. B.J knows about this and has a theory that perhaps a local resident was involved. He is still reeling from the death of his wife, who was a social worker trying to help a child and their mother escape from an abusive relationship.

What follows is a kidnapping into Mexico by the cartel, a daring escape (Who knew a golf ball would come in handy as a weapon?), a race across the desert to make it back to the U.S.A before they are found, an overnight stay at a Mexican asylum and a fantastic finish to the story. I really enjoyed the non-stop action and of course trying to figure out if there was a HEA within the story.

I will definitely read another book by this author.
