BOOK REVIEW- BEACHCOMBER BABY-Dark and dangerous Dane and shamelessly sexy Shana team up like oil & water on a mission to save a baby while they wage a personal war of love & hate between them. Ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise doesn't like cases involving babies. In his experience, they always end bad. Really bad.
When Father Donahue hands Shana a baby and the mission is to find the baby's mother, the ex-Scotland Yard detective can't resist taking the case. Shana convinces Dane to help her, but he'll only go so far.
Once they discover the priest dragged them into the tip of an iceberg full of trouble with an ex-Russian KGB operative turned-criminal and his comrades involved in a baby farm, things look bad. Really bad.
To keep Dane on the mission, Shana will need to uncover the secret of his terrible past baby case. Can she convince him to put aside his fears to save this baby--and save their partnership too? AMAZON
Interesting start to the story. Interesting chemistry and relationship between the two main characters too. A good way to put it "a war of love and hate". Just like the book blurb implies in the early few sentences, a found baby...easy peasy. Shana was eager to get back in the game with an easy case, anything to get working again.. Dane knows better than that. He knows that cases with babies so often turn out bad, gut wrenching bad. Then they find out that Father Donahue has been holding out on them when it comes to all the facts of the case. Even when the begin to uncover what he held back, they find that case is so much deeper than anyone had thought in the beginning. Its a good thing that both Shana and Dane believe in watching each other's back. Dane also seems to know just about everyone and has a large amount of influential people also willing to have his back. Influential and well armed friends. I really liked this book, found it enjoyable with plenty of twists and turns; usually when you don't see them coming. I thought I already had the facts and then *bam* another surprise. That secret that Dane had about a past baby case? Ohh, that one hurt.
I would definitely read another book by this author especially with Shana and Dane in it.
By the way..don't be put off by the racy looking cover. There is a good story but its a clean read. Well, unless you count blood, there will be some of that spilled.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
