Review: No Limits by Alison Kent

no-limitsFrom the back of the book:

The Heat is On . . .

Simon Baptiste’s latest SG-5 mission just went south in a major way. It seems like a good time to take care of some business back home in Louisiana. Simon knows it ain’t going to be pretty. He’s got old enemies in Bayou Allain who won’t exactly roll out the red carpet. But Simon’s first night back is more than he bargained for. Not only has the homestead gone to hell in a hand basket, but there’s a half-naked woman hiding inside it—a woman whose face Simon knows all too well. It’s Michelina Ferrer, the sultry spokesmodel for her family’s Ferrer fragrance empire—and Simon’s been staring at her picture on a billboard outside his Manhattan apartment for weeks…

And It’s Only Getting Hotter . . .

Micky Ferrer came down to Bayou Allain looking for her old college friend, only to discover that Lisa Landry has been missing for days. As soon as Micky starts asking questions, someone runs her car off the road. She’s hiding out in the old Baptiste place when Simon shows up—and he’s the hottest thing she’s laid eyes on since she got to town. Simon agrees that something strange is going on and that Lisa’s disappearance may be tied to it. As he and Micky search for answers, the sweltering heat makes it hard to keep their heads straight or their hands off each other…even as they unravel the small-town secrets that some people are willing to kill for…

I started reading this during the 24-hour read-a-thon and couldn’t stop. My kids ate dinner a little later than they are used to because I continued to read while I cooked. Micky has led a charmed life, but it hasn’t made her happy. She rebels against everything that her father wants her to be. Simon has a past he would rather forget and a life that is suited to his loner persona. These two couldn’t be any more different in some ways and any more the same in others. There being paired together was perfect. From the first moment you can “feel” the chemistry between them. There is also a lot to be said for the suspense in this book. I’m not normally a romantic suspense reader (I think a lot of times either the romance or the suspense suffers), but this was an amazing combination of the two. I don’t think that either the romance or the suspense suffered or took a backseat to the other. I can’t wait to read more by Alison Kent. (In fact right after I finished  No Limits, I ordered more books.)

the book girl gives NO LIMITS a 5/5
