With a gun and a duffel bag full of cash, Moriah Jensen is on the run from the police and ruthless drug dealers. She’d fled Chicago after her family was murdered and has spent the past four months trying to stay alive. Using an alias, she has bounced around from town to town, state to state, trying to stay at least a few steps ahead of the people chasing her.
KC Malone is on a two-week leave from his Navy SEAL team when he arrives at his uncle’s beach house to find a beautiful woman pointing a gun at his chest. What the hell had he just walked in on?
When the two become reluctant, temporary housemates, KC offers to train Moriah to defend herself against an alleged abusive ex-boyfriend. But then her past catches up with her and Moriah has to decide between her love for KC and running for safety. To stay would risk both their lives. To run would mean leaving her heart behind.
Somebody pass me a towel, or a fan, because this is some hot stuff. Nuclear even! Samantha A. Cole writes some steamy, sexy, action filled suspenseful romance filled with those hot alphas we love so much. This book is a bit more tame and vanilla than the Trident Security books, but the sex scenes are still just as panty-wetting.
The action starts from the beginning as Moriah Jensen is on the run from mob members for stealing a duffel full of cash and a gun. She’s managed to find a beach side house to rent for a while and lay low.
KC is a Navy SEAL just off a long assignment. He has a nice, long, R&R coming up and he wants to spend it at his Uncle Dan’s beach house. He isn’t prepared for the surprise waiting for him in the house.
KC and Moriah come together, and he offers to train her in self-defense and how to shoot. Moriah has told KC that she’s fleeing from an abusive boyfriend, but he soon suspects there’s something more. As roommates become lovers, Moriah has to decide whether to come clean or keep him safe by fleeing again. You’ll want to grab a copy of Take the Money and Run to see what happens!
I loved this book! Definitely another for my keeper pile, and this author is on my automatic buy list for sure. She writes stories that keep you riveted from word one with yummy alpha heroes, sassy heroines, and exciting, sexy storylines that keep you from ever putting your e-reader down.
