Hidden Prey

Being with Landon made her feel safe and alive and ready to face anything that might come their way.

I also own the box set of the series in ebook.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Tori Cox, a talented and sought-after musician, heads back to her roots to a small southwest town in Arizona as she flees an abusive relationship. When she arrives she witnesses the execution of a federal agent by the head of the Jimenez Cartel. The drug cartel kingpin orders his men to kill Tori before she can testify.

Landon Walker, a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security, rescues Tori from members of one of the most ruthless cartels in the world. He sets out to protect her, but soon protecting her isn’t enough. The fire between them makes him want her in a way that he’s never wanted another woman, despite his wounded heart.

Diego Montego Jimenez will do everything in his power to kill Tori, the young American woman, who threatens his business and family. No one lives to testify against the Jimenez Cartel.

Point of view:
3rd person. Mostly from Tori & Landon’s perspectives, but there are chapters from others.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This the first book in the Deadly Intent series. After Tori Cox witnesses the murder of an undercover DHS agent, she becomes the focus of a manhunt by the Jimenez cartel. Running into another agent, Landon Walker, saves her life. Landon stays by her side in trying to outrun the cartel who seems to have insider information on her whereabouts.

I loved all the action in this one: running, explosions, gun battles, and not-so-safe houses. The forced proximity and high stress situations bring Landon & Tori together quickly and I enjoyed the way that played out.

I truly enjoyed the ending and the HEA McCray gave these two. They deserved it. I’m looking forward to Dylan’s book, No Mercy.

Paul Woodson did a good job here. Voices, accents, and all the emotions. It was an enjoyable listen.

Content Warnings (possible spoilers):
rape (not MC), abduction, death of multiple agents
