Terri Mitchell is an undercover agent for B.A.D. working as a consultant for the New Orleans Police Department. The Bureau suspect there is a terrorist group being fronted and funded by a notorious drug lord, operating within New Orleans. Terri’s mission is to find out who they are and what they are planning.
Nathan Drake is a phantom. An ex-covert operative for the US army and now ex-con, he’s lost everyone he ever loved to the organised crime ring and he wants revenge.
When Terri’s path keeps being crossed by the mysterious phantom that has the criminal underworld in a panic, she realises they might just be working towards the same goal. Both trained by life and profession to not trust anyone, they must attempt to work together or die trying. If they don’t, an entire city could perish.
I was a little sceptical about the second book in the B.A.D. series being co-written by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love as not all pairings work, especially when Bad Attitude was such a great solo effort by Kenyon. Having been unable to put the book down until I’d finished, I’m happy to say it seems like a match made in heaven. I’m unfamiliar with Dianna Love’s work but while Kenyon’s trademarks are clearly present, the superb characterisations and hot scenes definately had an extra level to them. The plot is more intricate and in depth than I would say are Kenyon’s usual style and I think the collaboration has created something special there, definately an interesting setup for further books to be based around. The love scenes while extremely erotic, are well written and the mystery and tension building up between the two main characters throughout the book left me quite breathless. The action is fast paced and quite brutal at times but never overdone or just for the sake of it. Everything just fits in together so well to create an exciting and outstanding book.
