*** A new series of standalone novels by the author of the bestselling Mob Boss series ***
FBI agent Braden Kane has been gong it alone ever since a family scandal sent him running straight from the Ivy League into Special Forces. That’s where he learned the hardest lesson of all — we’re all alone in the end. And nobody can save us.
When a raid goes terribly wrong, walking out is almost instinctual. Following the rules is for suckers. There’s only one way to get things done, and that’s to do it off the books. By the time he walks out, he knows there’s only one thing he’ll miss.
Nora Murphy never really had a choice. Law enforcement was in her blood.
Raised by an old-school Irishmen in a houseful of brothers, she learned early there was only one way to survive.
Be stronger. Be smarter. Be better.
There was no time for romance. And certainly no time for love. Which made tabling her attraction to friend and fellow agent Braden Kane a no-brainer.
But Braden’s defection from the FBI opens the door to their relationship in a new and surprising way. Nora’s still getting her head around the possibilities when she’s assigned an explosive case involving a string of high-profile crimes with a shocking purpose. She can’t wait to bring down the ring of brash vigilantes — until a connection to Braden reveals itself in the investigation.
Now they’re on opposite sides of the law and order coin. Will their love be enough to bridge the gap? Will they survive long enough to find out?
Secrets and Lies
Working for the FBI can be one very dangerous job, but when you decide to resign because you feel like someone in the Bureau isn't following the rules, well things just got a lot more interesting. Braden has been a loyal agent through the tough and ugly, even when he became friends with members of the Syndicate. He never thought about being on the other side of the law, bringing down criminals in unlawful ways. However when it becomes clear that someone inside the Bureau is dirty, Braden makes it his job to bring them down. Meanwhile he can't deny his feelings for the one woman that has captured his heart and soul, Nora. They have been friends since their training in Quantico. Now that he is no longer in the FBI, he is ready to set her heart and soul on fire.
Nora has also been secretly crushing on Braden. So when Brendan finally makes his move, she is more than willing to go along for the ride. As their relationship grows, Brendan knows that the secrets he keeps from Nora about his new job may be what ends their newly established relationship. When threats come knocking on Brendan and Nora's door, Brandan knows that his time for secrets have come to an end. How will Nora react to Brendan's new job? Can they survive being on different sides of the law?
Rogue Love is a great introduction story to the Kings of Corruption series. Nora is a string, sexy and independent woman that can take on any man. Brandan is a sweet, loyal, and protective sex god that doesn't stop until he brings justice to the world. I loved the chemistry between Nora and Brendan. It was scorching hot! Can't wait for Logan's story!
I voluntarily accepted an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
Rouge Love is a great book. Braden and Nora have been friends for years secretly crushing on the other until one day things change. Work always got in the way before but that changes. I really enjoyed reading this book, I couldn't put it down. The characters had great chemistry and I can't wait for the second book in the series. You always write great books Michelle St James!!
