Take The Money and Run by Samantha A Cole
Malone Brothers series - Book 1
With a gun and a duffel bag full of cash, Moriah Jensen is on the run from the police and ruthless drug dealers. She’d fled Chicago after her family was murdered and has spent the past four months trying to stay alive. Using an alias, she has bounced around from town to town, state to state, trying to stay at least a few steps ahead of the people chasing her.
KC Malone is on a two-week leave from his Navy SEAL team when he arrives at his uncle’s beach house to find a beautiful woman pointing a gun at his chest. What the hell had he just walked in on?
When the two become reluctant, temporary housemates, KC offers to train Moriah to defend herself against an alleged abusive ex-boyfriend. But then her past catches up with her and Moriah has to decide between her love for KC and running for safety. To stay would risk both their lives. To run would mean leaving her heart behind.
Take the Money and Run is the first book in Samantha A Cole's exciting Malone Brothers series, and this book gets it off to a great start. Romance and suspense combines to create a book that you won't be able to put down, this is a real page turner. Unlike the author's BDSM themed Trident Security series, this series is pure vanilla - but it is still pretty darn steamy. Both the main characters and the supporting characters are really well written and are easy to connect with. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series as all of the Malone brothers are strong, heroic and super sexy - I can wait to meet the women who tame them.
Moriah is on the run from drug dealers who murdered her family, and from crooked police officers who would betray her in an instant. KC is on two week leave from his Navy SEAL team and the last thing he wants when he enters his uncle's beach house is to find a sexy but obviously scared woman pointing a gun at him. When she tells him she's in hiding from an abusive boyfriend KC offers to help her learn how to protect herself. But when danger finds Moriah will KC be able to keep her safe? And will he forgive her lies?
This is another fantastic book from this talented author. I get so excited whenever Samantha A Cole releases another book as I know it's going to be another brilliant story that I won't want to put down. Take the Money and Run receives five big stars.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
