Review for One Touch More by Mandy Baxter - 5 bees knees!



SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -

Strong, relentless, and lethal, he plays every angle to trap the worst criminals. But for the one woman he can't resist, he'll break all the rules…

For hotel manager Tabitha Martin, bad boys usually spell disaster. And her new guest promises just that, with his formidable build, tattooed biceps, and quiet take-no-mess attitude. Tabitha is already putting everything on the line to escape her vicious drug-dealing ex's control for good—but a single sizzling moment in “Damien Evans'” arms has her wanting all the trouble he can give…

He's been undercover too long and likes living dangerously too much. U.S. Marshal Parker Evans figures maybe that's why he doesn't immediately put Tabitha in custody. Sure, she's his one chance to finally take down a major drug ring. But every minute he protects this mostly innocent blonde leaves his heart all too vulnerable. And the cost of desire could be a deadly endgame…

MY REVIEW -

I really enjoyed this! I was going back and forth between a rating of 4 or 5, but ultimately I decided for a 5 because I was invested the whole time, and I didn't want to stop reading, so that's definitely a good sign. I was originally thinking of the 4 rating because I wasn't really connecting with Tabitha because I just didn't think she was making wise choices, so she was coming off as a bit weak to me, but I still liked her, and I get that she's trying to be helpful. I don't really like when people do unlawful things because they are in a tight spot, but I get where they are coming from, and I try to give them the benefit of the doubt. Damien was great! I loved his wounded tough guy character, and I enjoyed the undercover scenario. I like secret good guy storylines. Tabitha and Damien had some spicy chemistry, and the sex scenes were really good. The whole situation of Damien being undercover and trying to catch the bad guy while his feelings grow deeper for Tabitha when he really shouldn't be getting involved with her, was intriguing for me, and I zoomed through this book because I wanted to know how it would end. I look forward to reading more from Mandy Baxter. This is the first book I've read by her, and I will definitely check out some others. Great read!
