Review – Lucky Like Us by Jennifer Ryan

Lucky Like UsGenre: Contemporary Romance
Series: The Hunted Series, Book 2
Bought my copy from Amazon on April 30th, 2013

The Hunted series continues as Special Agent Sam Turner discovers that protecting the FBI’s star witness is more difficult than he thought!

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.

You find love when and where you least expect it. Sam had basically given up on finding a love like his twin brother Jack had found. No woman that was worth anything would put up with his job as a FBI agent. They always got sick of waiting around for him to find time for them.

Elizabeth just wanted a man to love her for her and not her family name or money. When she puts herself in danger for Sam without knowing who he is, their paths cross and their lives change irrevocably.

The way Elizabeth is drawn to Sam and automatically feels safe in his arms and calms when she hears his voice, even while under speaks of a connection soul deep. I love how Sam feels so possessive and protective of Elizabeth. It’s amazing to see how much chemistry these two have.

Once all the action happens in the story, Sam believes he’s lost Elizabeth for good. Once again, she has to set him straight. Elizabeth is my kind of heroine. She needs no man. She’s her own woman and she’s sassy! I love the sassy!
