Debuting 2018 - the new Steele Ridge: The Kingstons series.
Maggie Kingston is a woman working in a man’s world…and doing a damn good job. Being Steele Ridge’s first female sheriff isn’t easy. Especially when your cousins are magnets for trouble. The Steeles do everything the hard way, but Maggie’s tougher than she looks. Nothing shakes this sheriff until her cousin brings one of his superstar players—and the accompanying media circus—to town. The press can’t get enough of the sexy quarterback. And neither can Maggie…
Jayson Tucker devoted his whole career to the New York Knights. So when the team takes a rookie’s side over his after a locker room brawl, he takes refuge from the spotlight. Except reporters aren’t the only ones after him. Someone wants Jayson benched. Permanently. When the threat becomes deadly, hiding won’t be enough. And in Steele Ridge, security comes in the luscious form of its gorgeous, no-nonsense sheriff.
Jayson’s always fought his own battles. The closer he gets to Maggie, the less he’s willing to risk her being caught in the crossfire. Yet Maggie is no damsel in distress. She’s more than capable of keeping her town—and her man—safe. But can she say the same about her heart?
Fast paced and addictive
No matter the genre that this author writes in, she excels in writing stories that have you engrossed and engaged from the opening paragraph, and then rapidly turning pages. Around every corner is the unexpected, she is definitely the type of storyteller who has a surprise or two waiting in the wings. This first book in the new series, an extension to the Steele Ridge series, involving the Kingston cousins, is no exception. It is a delight that the Steele and Kingston families are weaved together throughout the story.
With her telltale gift of mixing drama and suspense with the perfect amount of playful humor and banter, Ms Giordano has given Maggie her own much deserved story. Pairing her with a professional athlete in the form of Jayson Tucker was the perfect compliment to Maggie’s strong female presence. Their story will take you through twists and turns involving different factors and characters all playing strong roles in tying all the aspects together in such a fashion to bringing about the perfect conclusion, to the drama and for the couple themselves.
This ARC book was complimentary, provided by the Publisher and NetGalley. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.
Maggie and Jay have a chemistry that draws them to each other. Their baggage can get in the way, but Maggie is determined to protect Jay from who is after him.
Once again Adrienne draws you in until you can’t put it down until the very end.
Another suspense filled book in Steele Ridge doesn’t disappoint in the suspense or romance departments.
