Resolutions

by Teri Riggs

DEA agent Eve Taylor has had her fill of alpha males. When Resolutions’ operative and former lover, Dillon “Mac” McKenna, threatened her hard-earned independence, she ran. On a mission to gather evidence against a Colombian drug-lord, Eve discovers the drug-lord is helping terrorists plan an attack on American soil. Before she can escape with the vital information, she’s captured and comes face to face with her mortality…

As a teen, Mac watched his family fall apart after his mother died doing dangerous U.N. work. The possibility of losing Eve to a mission ignited an overwhelming need to protect her. When he forced her to choose him or her job, she walked away. Two years later, it seems all his nightmares have come true and he’s tasked with rescuing her from a Colombian prison. Mac has never stopped loving Eve, but does he dare risk his heart when he’s so terrified of losing…

On the run, Mac and Eve must learn to trust each other again in order to stay alive.

Note: Resolutions is a private black ops agency specializing in the near-impossible extractions of kidnap victims, hostages, and all forms of intelligence other agencies have failed to retrieve.

Review:

*thud*  I have found a new author to stalk and one of the freshest voices in Romantic Suspense that I’ve read in a very long time.  As most know, Romantic Suspense is my favorite genre to read.  I cut my teeth on Andrea Kane, Sandra Brown, and Cherry Adair so when I get my hands on a new RS author, I gobble it up.  Some I spit right back out but not with Ms. Riggs.  I savored it, enjoyed it and took great pleasure in reading it in one sitting.  *thud*

Instead of the standard Harlie review, I’m going to list my top five things that make this book AWESOME.  (in no particular order)

1.  Eve is one bad ass DEA Agent.  Sure, I’ve read lots of books where the heroine is an agent but Ms. Eve is like no other character that I’ve read in RS.  She kicks butt, doesn’t take crap from other agents and especially Mac.  Plus, even when torture, she takes it like man.  Its part of her job and who sure is.  No shrinking violet are Eve.  She does have a soft side.

2.  Mac…He realizes that Eve doesn’t “need” him but he “needs” her.  Dealing with issues with his past, some that include Eve, he’s got some things to get over but he can truly have Eve.  Plus, he finally realized that Eve was his equal.  That takes a strong man to figure that out.

3.  Mr. Mendoza – I don’t think I’ve read such a back and I mean bad villain in a long time.  There is nothing redeeming at all about him and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants.  Including torture.

4.  The settings in South America…Good lord, Ms. Riggs did her research.  I felt like I was on the run with Mac and Eve every step of the way.  I will warn you this book has lots of violence.  But hey you are dealing with a drug cartel.  It happens.

5.  The action was no stop in the book.  Some of it was a bit cliched but it worked in the book.  Eve and Mac were just too good together.  Between the smexy times, dialogue and finally figuring out that being apart for two years was one of the DUMBEST things that either one of them did.

What I didn’t like about the book was sometimes the violence was a bit brutal for me and I did NOT like the torture scene.  It was necessary but I still didn’t like it.  Don’t miss this book peeps.  I will be stalking her relentlessly until the next book in the series comes out.  🙂

About the Author:Teri-Riggs

 

Teri Riggs was destined to be a writer. As a small girl she didn’t read bedtime stories, she made up her own. Who needed Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs when there were so many great tales bouncing around in her head? When she grew up and became a mother to three little girls, she continued the tradition of making up bedtime stories. On the occasions she chose to tell conventional fairytales, Teri usually gave them a bit of tweaking here and there or added a new ending. Her girls loved it.
After her daughters had the nerve to actually grow up and leave home, Teri discovered she had a passion for writing and jumped right in. It came as no surprise she chose to write mysteries and happily-ever-after’s since that’s the genres she loves to read.
Teri lives in Marietta, Georgia with her husband, one of her daughters and two dogs that seem to think they rule the world. And some days Teri thinks maybe they do.

Enjoy the following excerpt for RESOLUTIONS:

 

Beefy hands wrenched Eve awake from a fevered sleep, pulled her from the cell, and shoved her into a musty-smelling hallway. I’m being moved? A guard pushed her with one hand, keeping a tight grip on an AK-47 rifle with his other.

Her shoulder throbbed in perfect cadence with the pains shooting through her broken wrist, and she had one badass headache from being punched in the face a few too many times. Using her good hand, she walked fingers across one cheek, then the other. The right side was totally numb. Her eye had swollen shut, and she couldn’t see a damn thing out of it. She ran her tongue across her teeth and tasted the tart, copper flavor of blood. Three teeth loose. Well, at least they’re still in place.

In spite of the relentless pain, she stayed determined to survive whatever Mendoza dished out. She wasn’t a quitter. No, sir. Duncan Falls, Iowa didn’t grow quitters. Eve ignored the constant ache in her ribs, courtesy of a guard’s overzealous kick, and took in a deep breath. She willed herself to stay alert, to keep pushing. Escape. Third times the charm.

Eve slapped the guard’s dirty hand. “Hey, Pedro, stop being so damned pushy. Where we going anyway? We got a hot date I’ve forgotten about?”

He looked puzzled then shoved her again.

“Don’t understand English, do you, Diego? Bet you understand this.” Eve drove her elbow into the guard’s face. Thick rubbery cartilage gave, and she whooped triumphantly.

Blood squirted from his nose and he screamed.

Eve stepped back. “Yep, I’m pretty sure you understand that.”

Unable to grab the guard’s assault rifle, she clutched her injured shoulder, and took off in a slow jog, no longer able to push any harder.

Her escape was short lived.
