Series: Elite Ops #6
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Author's Website: http://www.loraleigh.com
As a bridal shop owner, Mikayla Martin helps make women’s wedding dreams come true. Her own life, however, has become a nightmare since she witnessed a murder—and got an up-close-and-personal look at the killer. What’s worse: She knows she knows him. But the police, after doing an alibi check, don’t believe her. It’s up to Mikayla to prove them wrong…and do whatever it takes to solve the murder by herself.
Elite Ops agent Nikolai Steele, code name Renegade, is asked to pay an old comrade a favor. This friend swears he’s no killer—and Nik believes him—even though he’s been mistaken as one by Mikayla. So Nik goes to set her straight…but the moment he lays eyes on the fiery and determined beauty, he knows he’s in too deep. A woman this irresistible can only mean trouble and, sure enough, after sticking her nose in one too many places, someone wants Mikayla dead. Now Nik must find a way to keep her safe, clear his friend’s name, and find the real killer, who remains on the loose…
This book was so much better than the last ones in the series. I really liked Mikayla, she wasn't your typical virginal heroine, she actually had a back bone and wasn't afraid to use it when she needed to. Which would then drive Nik nuts as right from the start he was fighting his attraction to her.
Watching these 2 dance around each other and their feelings for each other was the fun of the story. Nik had been very hurt in his past, seems to be a running theme from this author, and Mikayla was set up to be the person everyone aspires to be, such a good girl never does anything wrong, and has the trust of her whole community. This description of Mikayla has the possibility to grate on your nerves, but she is really likable. I loved how everyone from Mikayla's family to friends to community members and Nik's team kept warning him not to hurt her.
The crime that Mikayla saw was only mildly interesting. I had figured out how it was done fairly early, just not the specific person. It looks like things will be interesting in future books with Mikayla having contacts the team can use.
