When a high-profile investigation goes wrong, FBI Agent Kyle Dawson is transferred back home where he is forced to confront his demons…and the only woman he ever loved. Three years ago, Kyle and Abby Morrow shared a wild, passionate summer—then Abby broke his heart.


Kyle never stopped loving Abby. So when Abby uncovers evidence of a human-trafficking ring, leading to her sister’s kidnapping, he swears he’ll stop at nothing to bring her sister home and keep Abby safe. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse and blindsided by their own explosive desires, they must set aside the past before it’s too late.

This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

Stop at Nothing by Kate SeRine

Kyle Dawson stopped nursing his broken heart long ago, but that doesn’t mean he’s over her.  And when a mistake at work lands him right back in his hometown with Abby, the woman he can’t forget, he soon finds himself helping her uncover a human trafficking ring, trying to save her sister, and trying to keep Abby and her nephew safe.

But…  There was a lot going on in this story, and it came together well in the end, but it was hard to pick up on and keep up with it all for much of the book.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing, just something to bear in mind if you’re thinking of reading it.  There’s plenty of danger, sexual tension, and mystery to solve, and it’ll keep your head spinning.

Judging Covers:  Yes, I picked this one up because of the cover.  Having just come down from reading two black ops romances, I wasn’t quite ready to dive into something sweet and fluffy.  One look at this cover, and I figured I’d found my next dangerous romance.

The Verdict:   As I said, there was a lot going on in this story, so it certainly made for an entertaining read.  Kyle was a lot more flawed than I expected, which made him much easier to relate to and understand.  At the same time, though, he was definitely the alpha male romance hero that amps up the sexual tension.  However, I began to be a bit put off when the reason for their previous break-up came to light.  It was another of those, “I love you, but I’ll destroy your heart by pretending I don’t for some really stupid reason,” stories.  And while I realize that people are shaped by the relationships around them, this one was just too insignificant of a reason to actually be a good excuse.  With so much imagination poured into the other details of their story, it seemed like such a cop-out, so I was glad this was a library find and not something I paid for.  That said, if you like the action/danger/adventure romance genre, Stop at Nothing by Kate SeRine is worth a shot.  And while I won’t be paying to read the next book in the series, if it pops up on the library’s list, I’ll be grabbing it.
