About the book:

Bakery owner Elizabeth Hamilton’s quiet life is filled with sweet treats, good friends, and a loving family. But all of that is about to turn sour when an odd sound draws her outside. There’s a man lying unconscious in the street, a car speeding toward him. Without hesitation, she gets the man out of harm’s way before they’re run down.

Unwittingly, Elizabeth has put herself in the path of a serial murderer, and as the only one who can identify the FBI’s Silver Fox Killer, she’s ended up in the hospital with a target on her back.

All that stands between her and death is Special Agent Sam Turner. Against his better judgment, Sam gets emotionally involved, determined to take down the double threat against Elizabeth—an ex desperate to get her back, despite a restraining order, and a psychopath bent on silencing her before she can identify him.

They set a trap to catch the killer—putting Elizabeth in his hands, with Sam desperate to save her. If he’s lucky, he’ll get his man . . . and the girl.

These Hunted books are like reading crack to me, lol. I don’t know exactly what it is about them, but I start reading and I absolutely can’t stop. LUCKY LIKE US starts with the hero and heroine getting hurt and ending up in the ICU. Elizabeth spends most of the first half of the book in the hospital and in and out of consciousness. There is an instant connection between Elizabeth and Sam once she starts to wake up. They connect through their trauma and their attraction to each other. Elizabeth only feels safe when Sam is around and Sam promises to do anything in his power to make sure that she is never hurt again. There is never a calm or dull moment through the book – the action is non-stop. The stakes are high as they search for the Silver Fox Killer and Sam tries to protect the woman he is quickly falling in love with.

Elizabeth is almost too good to be true (and so is Sam). She bakes for the children’s hospital, helps a man she doesn’t know whose hurt in the middle of the street, and puts others before herself over and over. The attraction between the couple starts while she’s recovering from life threatening injuries and he’s recovering from being shot in the back (with his vest on). It’s all way beyond what I think would happen in real life, but I DIDN’T CARE! I loved every moment with Elizabeth and Sam. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series (although I’m a little sad that it isn’t about Sam’s partner, Tyler).

*The eBook version is only $1.99! The first book in the series SAVED BY THE RANCHER features Sam’s identical twin brother, Jack. It isn’t necessary to read it first, but it was just as addictive in my opinion and is also $1.99 for the eBook.*
