"I love her books!" --Linda Lael Miller
"Martin is superb." --RT Book Reviews
A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a private investigator, no one can handle the heat like the men of BOSS, Inc.
Megan O'Brien is at her wit's end. Her three-year-old son has been kidnapped. No police, says the ransom demand. Fearing for her son's life, Meg has no choice but to turn to her former bodyguard, Dirk Reynolds.
Dirk's never forgiven Meg for the way she left him after their brief affair. But with bounty hunter Luke Brodie on his side, Dirk knows he's got to help Meg rescue her son.
The few clues they’ve gathered send them spiraling into a murky world of big banking and international crime. Meg may be way out of her depths, but she’s seeing a side of Dirk she never suspected—one no woman could possibly resist.

What a great story! It's been awhile since I read a book by Kat Martin, it began to seem like all of her books were the same. I decided to take a chance on this book and it turned out to be the best book I've read by this author. If you are looking for a book with romance, action, and nail biting (I think I chewed mine to the quick) this is the story for you. There is always something happening, its non-stop action. While I was reading this story, I was so engrossed while on a plane, when my kindle died I was so frustrated because it died right in the middle of a good part I did what was necessary, (buy wifi) in order to download the book on my phone and continue the story.
Meg kicked Dirk out of her life 5 months previously because she wanted to protect her son, and herself, from heartbreak. She felt Dirk didn't want to be a father yet, so she felt walking away was the best thing to do. Until her son, Charlie, is kidnapped and held for ransom. Meg's first thought is to go to Dirk for help.
Dirk is a bodyguard, bounty hunter, and PI that helped to protect Meg while she was a lingerie model. He hasn't forgiven Meg for essentially shoving him out of her life with no explanation, but once she shows up asking for help, he knows he's going to help her. With the help of Luke Brodie, they begin the investigation into who could have taken Charlie, starting first with her father. Meg's father is a wealthy man, and would do anything to protect his grandson. Once they discover where Charlie is being held, Meg goes with them on the rescue and ends up showing Luke what Dirk sees in her, but also puts Meg in danger.
The eventually discover that Charlie's father is behind the kidnapping and ransom demand after he got involved with unsavory people in South America. Since Meg's ex isn't able to repay his debt he trades Meg to an evil character who has her kidnapped and taken to his home. By this time Dirk and Meg have reconnected and he realizes he can't lose her, so going against demands put in place by the FBI the BOSS, Inc team heads to Argentina to conduct a rescue mission. Dirk arrives just in time to prevent harm coming to Meg. It sweet watching Charlie and Dirk get to know each other, he quickly becomes the father to Charlie that he never had. He's also amazing at it. I'm glad these two were able to make things work this time around.
