Blurb:  With a man like him, every mission becomes personal. . .

Ever since FBI agent Keira O’Shay started tracking a young boy named Mateo, she’s felt a connection even her empathic abilities can’t explain. She needs to save Mateo from the cult leader holding him hostage. Nothing can interfere with that–not even the reappearance of Luke Ransom, the hot-as-hell fire captain she’s regretted walking out on for three long years.

Losing Keira left Luke vulnerable–in every way. When they were together, the powers each possesses were mysteriously enhanced. But it’s the sexy, surprising woman beneath the tough exterior that Luke’s really missed. Even if she betrayed him utterly. And even if agreeing to help her uncover a government conspiracy means watching his life and his heart go up in flames again. . .

Review:  This is a great follow up from the fist story.  I’m still loving the intrigue and world that is going on here like I did in the first book.

The only reason that I dropped the rating for this after such a high rating on the first book is the fact that the back and forth attitude from Keira kinda drove me nuts.  I really didn’t like her all that much.  We even got a little bit of that out of Luke with his jump to conclusions attitude.  I’m beginning to wonder if the waffling character trait is becoming a peeve of mine.  It negates the strong, badass personality that a character is supposed to have.

While this did bug me, I like enough of everything else that is going on in this series to overlook that part enough to still enjoy this book.  I do hope that the characters in the rest of the books don’t come across in the same way.
