Bad boy Mick Donovan has dedicated his life to avenging his brother’s death, even aligning himself with an FBI Task Force to achieve his ends. Which leads him to the mess he’s in now–undercover as the husband of the woman he’s been fantasizing about, despite knowing how off-limits she is, to protect an innocent child.
After an ambush, Destiny Harper is on the run and out of places to hide from a ruthless drug lord hellbent on claiming his son. Charged with protecting the boy, Dez lands in the mountains on a collision course with Mick, a blizzard, and a past she’d rather forget. But even as the close quarters ignites the passion between her and the sexy biker, she knows there’s no future with him. Mick will sacrifice everything for revenge—even her.
If you are looking for a fast-paced romantic thriller, then look no further than Unstoppable by Cindy Skaggs. The action literally begins from the very first few pages and never lets up until the adrenaline induced ending! WOW!
Dez is a cop who finds herself on the run with a sexy biker, Mick, and a young boy, Nate. She’s promised to protect Nate no matter what the costs when his ruthless drug lord father tries to kidnap him. Not only is she running from a psycho, she’s running from a past and from the feelings she has for Mick. She doesn’t know it, but Mick has been fantasizing about her too. These two are extremely complicated characters, so I knew this wouldn’t be a normal romance, and I was so glad it wasn’t!
Mick is a bad boy, and Dez is also a tough cookie! They are perfect for one another. The book is told from their two different POVs, so readers get an in-depth look at what makes these characters tick. They are complex characters with many different levels that are revealed with each chapter. Mick is a bad boy, but he does love those he cares about with his whole heart. That’s the reason he is going after Sully, the drug lord. Dez is tough, and she does have a past that completely dictates how she lives her life. In fact she says,”She did better on the run, shooting at people rather than taking care of them. She was an un-nurturer, born to disconnect and disassemble.” However, Mick has started to make her feel again. But, it’s sweet Nate who really gets past those defensive walls. He makes her start questioning her current philosophy on love and life. Isn’t it amazing what kids can do?
I had not realized this was a part of a series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I do wish I had begun at the beginning. In fact, her first books are now on my list to read, and I will probably re-read this one as well. It’s the perfect combination of spice, sweetness, and action! I’m glad I discovered a new writer as talented as Cindy Skaggs.
ABOUT CINDY SKAGGS
Most of those stories were even true. She has ten siblings, some of whom are older than her mother, has nieces and nephews older than her, and once went to a horse auction with John Wayne. Well, with him in the sense that he was there, and she was also… there. She was the munchkin in line for his autograph with tangled hair and bruised knees that liked to dance on her daddy’s dusty cowboy boots and listen to his tall tales.
With her love of storytelling and heroes, it’s no wonder she turned to books and stories after her father died. She skipped most of the eighth grade to bury herself in books while hidden in her closet, because she was still looking for the perfect story and the last honest man. Her search took her around the world with the Air Force as well as around the world with her education. She’s visited more countries than she can remember, nearly every state in the U.S., and has more degrees than the Tin Man.
As a single mom, she’s still gambling, betting on herself for the first time in her life, turning her lifelong love of storytelling into the one thing she can’t live without: writing. She writes 10,000 words a week in cafes and coffee shops, and some of those 10,000 words are even worth reading. She has an MA in Creative Writing, is working towards her Master of Fine Arts, and has three jobs, two kids, a Pushcart Nomination, more pets than she can possibly handle, and more works in progress than the crew filling potholes after a long Colorado winter.
