As one of the top Assistant US Attorneys in the country, Savannah Walker is smart, ambitious, and she doesn’t back down from a challenge, unless it comes in the form of Noah Johnson. Savannah’s been in love with her best friend’s brother longer than she cares to admit, but risking their friendship isn’t on her to-do list. When building a case against a drug trafficker, she’s assigned to a DEA task force led by the one man she can’t shake. She has no idea if this case will bring them together or tear them apart.
DEA, Noah Johnson, risks his life every day. With a world filled with blood and bullets, he’s unwilling to chance Savannah’s life. Keeping her at bay for years, Noah has forced himself to never cross that line, but lately, he can’t get her out of his head. When an investigation into a drug trafficker reveals a mole in Savannah’s office, Noah will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
When danger lurks around every corner and passions are riding high, not even Savannah or Noah know if they’re ready for admission.

First off, thanks to Hot Tree Promotions and author, Kaithlin Shepherd for allowing me a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Secondly, I'm just.... (Is still in a place of awe and emotions I can't name) My emotions for this book, the feels man. I feel like I've been on a three day binge with Jose and the Captain. (Laughs) it's a good thing my kindle has a good case on it.... because it did go sailing at one point. Not far and not hard but it went.
Savannah, Kennedy, Zoe and Annabelle are all best friends. Noah, Conner, Blake and Logan are all best friends. Add them all together and you have the makings for a new season of Beverly Hill 90210 minus some of the drama. But... when you take a look at the who and what you see it's really like the adult version of Dawson's Creek, minus the cheese (you know the whole Joey and Dawson struggle) meets Law and Order.
Beautiful, smart women in high powered jobs and tattoo covered men with badges and guns.... I mean seriously what is not to freaking love!?!? Lawyers, NYPD and DEA, oh my!
Okay, I'll be honest there were a parts where I wanted to slap or strangle them all. Trust me those moments were there.
Many may go, if you loved it why a 4.75 rating and not a 5? Well there were a few parts that I thought needed a little more. It's not that it wasn't finished it just seemed rushed to me. It that's easily overlooked all in all. It's a great story.
So.. here we go...
Savannah is a US Attorney with the mind of a scholar, the temper of a pit ill and a stubborn side that would rival many male around. She's working on a case that's now put her in danger. As with many of the cases she works she doesn't back down. She like a dog with a bone. Give her an inch and she takes the whole thing. Nothing if not all. Team her with Annabelle and they're an unstoppable train.
Noah, dark, tattooed DEA man is hot on the case with Savannah and he's hot for her. Trick is, they're both too stubborn or blind to see that the connection they've had for the last eighteen years is mutual. It's not until the threat level against Savannah is heightened that Noah takes control of the situation. Putting Savannah under protective custody along side Annabelle. Which means more time with Conner and she won't complain about that.
As things progress in the case so does the tension between Noah and Savannah. She's not one to be caged and he is not one to open up. But the bond that's always been there grows and grows. It's like watching a balloon fill with water. Sooner or later it has to overflow or burst. And when the thing burst.... years of hope, list and an unbridled passion spills all over them. Then... the sh*t storm call Vasquez happens and all hell breaks loose. Noah and Conner are sent to South America, captured and well let's just say things get dire. Savannah does the only thing she can and sends them help. The kind that needs a secret meeting and a lot of money.
But when she gets Noah and Conner's back, she knows it was more than worth it. Round two of the good guys vs the arsehole doesn't fair much better but this time instead of the boys in trouble... it's Savannah. She's willing to do anything she can to save her friends. The seven people that mean the most to her in her life. And that puts her face to face with Vasquez.
What happens from there is a twisted sort of fate that one can only dream up. Revenge has never been a sweeter candy than it is to Noah and their friends now. They'd all die to protect one of their own.... but in the end it's one on one and may the best man win.
