With a deadly target on his back, DEA agent Luke Calder’s plan is to drink away his impending demise. Except instead of getting blessedly drunk, in walks a woman with a much deeper story than she’s leading on. And he definitely wants to know more. Especially when he learns she might have intel he needs. He’s not cool with lying to her, but desperate times call for desperate measures. And what starts out as simple surveillance turns into so much more. Cassandra Stone is having a bad night. Her boyfriend’s been cheating because she’s not “adventurous enough” in bed. So, she does the next logical thing—she goes in search of a dark, dangerous one-night stand. Instead, she finds smoldering eyes, deep dimples, and the killer smile of a guy who won’t leave her alone. Damn him. He says and does all the right things, making Cass believe that good men still exist. Until she learns why he took an interest in her in the first place.


My thoughts: 

Oh boy - I really liked this one more than I was expecting! I do recommend reading the first book in the series prior to this one - I think it provides some pretty relevant background info and gives context on a lot of the characters and the over all plot. That being said, I enjoyed In Walked Trouble even without having read On Her Six. I immediately sympathized with Cassandra and the shenanigans she found herself embroiled in were hilarious, until ish got REAL. And poor Luke, he just wants to do his job and it just keeps getting more and more difficult (especially since a big baddie wants him dead). There was A LOT going on in the book, plot twists, etc. galore and while at times that can turn me off (if it seems too soap opera-y) in this case it just served to propel the story forward and add to the overall suspense of the book. I give In Walked Trouble 4.5 out of 5 wine glasses and fully intend to read the first book and continue on with this EXCELLENT series! 


Christina believes that laughter really is the best medicine, which is why in her stories she blends a healthy dose of hilarious hijinks with gritty suspense. When she’s not writing fun contemporary romance or quirky romantic suspense, Christina can be found devouring books in every genre, watching Chris Hemsworth on TV, playing board games with her family, working out, checking out Chris Hemsworth on Facebook, napping, stalking Chris Hemsworth on Instagram, and shopping…for Chris Hemsworth’s latest DVD. Christina lives near Baltimore with her husband and two sons, who give her an endless supply of humorous material to write about. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and Maryland Romance Writers.
