“Similar to the first two books in the series, the basic premise has potential but the execution is poor with overly descriptive and redundant scenes.
Lark and Dev have tangible chemistry and there are, thankfully, no fade to black scenes as in book #2. That said, neither character is particularly likable. Dev is afraid to commit and constantly muses over the possibility of being with other women while Lark comes across as flirty and also mentions the possibility of having sex with another man. Their relationship is based almost solely on sex and their HEA is not believable.
The plot starts out well with the black market adoption ring. Unfortunately, this storyline is underdeveloped and plays out far too quickly. The book then goes off in a completely different, and unrealistic, direction with megalomaniac drug lords, rival cartels and special forces operatives taking over.
In sum, this series is nothing special and the secondary characters who will be the focus of future books are not that interesting. ”

“It was totally awesome ,i loved every second of it , i was so happy that Dev got his own book and i just could not put it down, Great chatacers ,tons of action and a pretty good plot.
Dev is awesome and i fell in love with him from the moment i met him in the first book, it was awesome to get to see how Dev worked and it was great that he helped Lark find her niece ,it was cool to see them fall in love ,i have no idea why they we're trying to fight what they felt for each , but in the end it turned out great.
Lark is an ok character ,there were times where i just wanted to shake some sense into her ,i didn't care for the fact that she acted liked she & her firends had to have high end outfits for Chrissy after they got back to LA ,i mean she's a little girl what does she need designer outfits for? , it was great that she wanted to help Dvd find her but there were times when she put others in harms way because she wanted to go rescue Chrissy , over all she's an ok characters and i was happy they Dvd finally found someone to make him happy.
Overall this book was really good ,i loved the plot and characters are totally kick ass ,i can't wait to read about Trace Rawlins , Jihnnie Riggs & Jake Cantrell ,they are all very interesting characters and i can't wait to see what Kat Martin has in store for them. ”

“Dev is thirty-two and semi-retired from Raines Investigations, and seemingly content to run his business from the comfort of his Arizona home. When he meets Lark Delaney, he realizes he's never been able to say no to a lady and this one needs his help. The former U.S. Army Ranger from Wind Canyon, Wyoming, comes out of retirement and jumps with both feet into the action for her.
Lark is sexy, successful and determined to track down the daughter her sister gave up for adoption years ago. It should be simple and to the point, but it's not long before Dev uncovers a bogus adoption ring and worse--the child's parents have been murdered and the little girl kidnapped.
Dev is unable to ignore his attraction to Lark as the case grows more dangerous with each passing minute. He also doesn't trust his judgement with women or his emotions since his fiance broke off the engagement just days before the wedding three years ago. But there's a slim chance, if he gets this right and saves Lark's niece that he just might end up saving himself.
A fabulous conclusion to the Raines of Wind Canyon series.”
“By far the best of the "against" series so far. For a light (or not) escapist read it had all the action (saving the four-year-old daughter of Lark Delaney's deceased sister from a particularly vicious Mexican drug cartel) and the romance and sex and hard-bodied hunks one could want in a romantic suspense read.”unfinished woman wrote this review Sunday, April 3, 2011.
