Kyle “Kick” Jackson wants nothing to do with his old life. He actually shot the last guy they sent after him. He’s been hiding since he was nearly blown up on his last mission. But the CIA has other ideas. They want him to finish that mission.

Rainie Martin lets her friend Gina talk her into attending speed dating for medical professionals. For a woman whose fear of life keeps her within a ten block radius of her apartment, this is pushing her limits. Then she spots a man that just screams danger and she’s toast. The added bonus—the man is Doctor Nathan Daneby of Doctors for Peace. A man she has never met but has greatly admired for many years.

It soon becomes excruciatingly clear that, though this man is walking sex, he is NOT Nathan Daneby. The gun he pulls is a dead give away. And though she knows it is a huge mistake, Rainie wants him and has him. She is confused by her feelings for him; they can’t possibly be real.

Kick was just looking for someone to help him through his problem, not someone to fall in love with. And certainly not someone who ends up being dragged into a dangerous situation that he has no control over. But Rainie seems to be both of those things, whether Kick likes it or not. And damn—a desert in Africa is a hell of a place to fall in love.

Shoot to Thrill is beyond engrossing. I seriously could not put this book down. Around every bend in the storyline is another adventure. With their fears and trust issues in tow, Kick and Rainie burn up the pages with all the heat of the Sudan.

The secondary characters – Alex, Gina, Marc, and Nathan – are just as intriguing as the primary ones. With a secondary story that goes along with the back story and one that primes you for what is to come, Shoot to Thrill is one of the best books I have read this year. I can’t wait to read the second book in the series. I Joyfully Recommend Shoot to Thrill.
