From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated…
Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story. But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus—and maybe risking more…
With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.
He's ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out….
Tanner Thomas was known for always chasing a story – and the more dangerous, the better. But after a bullet steals away his long-time photographer and partner, he begins to reevaluate his life.
The news never stops for tragedy and he finds himself right back in the war torn Middle East. Only this time, they’ve set him up with some hotshot rookie that seems to dazzle everyone with their unique ability to capture just the right moment on film. So when he mistakenly thinks that this newbie named “BJ” is a rough and tumble guy – it sets in motion a night that will change everything he’s ever thought about love.
“Even though I’m restless for action beyond the hotel’s walls and the city’s limits, I’m also antsy because something has me feeling like this is the eye of the storm.
Beaux Croslyn knows exactly who Tanner is when she meets him. His reputation for hard-hitting reporting is known and respected worldwide. What she didn’t know was just how devastating he is in person.
She has to keep her head in the game or people get killed and the secret that she’s hiding has the power to stop everything in its tracks. But there’s just something about Tanner Thomas that makes her want to throw caution to the wind and take a chance with both her body and her heart.
“With enough distance between us, I can see the surprise I feel mirrored in her eyes. Right then there are so many things I want to tell her, and yet I have no clue where to start. It’s like we’ve both been stripped of that false bravado we had last week when she said she refused to touch me again and I told her I’d control the reins. It’s almost as if the moment were too raw, too real, and holding too much certainty that once we step over that edge, we won’t be coming back.”
Hard Beat is the latest and most unique installment in the Driven series. Yes, there’s still that wild tension and searing heat that we’ve come to expect – but this time there’s an added dimension of edge-of-your-seat suspense.
The story itself develops at an unhurried pace and I found myself randomly flipping through pages to try to uncover what was really going on. The ending eased my inner restlessness and over all, I enjoyed Tanner and Beaux’s journey. Just expect the unexpected…
Exclusive Excerpt -
She pulls me from my lewd but damn fine thoughts when she tries to jerk her arm from my hold. My spine stiffens some because hell if I’m up for resistance right now. I’m emotionally drained, exhausted, and as much as I don’t want to feel that grenade of desire sitting low in my belly, I still want to pull its pin so I can lose myself for a bit in the soft curves and sweet taste of a gorgeous woman no matter how fucking insolent she is.
