Author: Marissa Garner
Stars 3 out of 5
This is the first time I have read anything by Marissa Garner and I wish I could say that I found this book exciting but I found it middle of the line for Romantic Suspense novels. I personally found the male lead to be slightly condescending to Amber the female lead though out the book. Beginning to end you knew what would happen next without needing to read. There was zero surprises and the book would drag on to the point I started to speed read so I go get to something interesting.
Marrissa used the word dick one to many times for my taste and apparently Ben's penis agrees with his thoughts all the time.
What I love about a suspense novels is the fear something might happen to the character you fall in love with put personally this read like a life time movie. You knew everything that would happen before it happened.

For San Diego's elite FBI agents, risking their lives is standard procedure when it comes to capturing the city's most dangerous criminals-but falling in love is the greatest risk of all.
Catching bad guys in San Diego's underworld isn't just FBI Special Agent Ben Alfren's job, it's his life. He doesn't have time for a serious relationship, doesn't want one either. So when he meets his sexy new neighbor, Amber Jollett, he has nothing more in mind than unwinding with a glass of wine, a romantic walk on the beach...and maybe a hot fling.
But Amber is more than he bargained for. Her job as a nurse has brought her face-to-face with women caught in a human trafficking ring, women she's determined to help. As Ben and Amber plot to rescue the women, the attraction between them flares into passion. But they'll learn that in this dangerous game of cat and mouse, real love can save - or doom - them . . .

I’m Marissa Garner. I’m a wife, writer, chocoholic, and animal lover, not necessarily in that order. As a little girl, I cut pictures of people out of my mother’s magazines and turned them into characters in my simple stories.

I live in sunny Southern California with my husband, but enjoy traveling from Athens to Anchorage to Acapulco and to many locations in between.
I write romance to titillate your mind as well as your libido. My stories appeal to romance readers who:
