The job should have been easy—patrol a swank beach that serves as a backyard for Maui’s rich, kick out the riffraff, and get a tan in the process. But rent-a-cop Samantha Winters didn’t anticipate a deliciously grumpy cop, Sergeant Grady Roark, who comes down to the beach to bust her chops and instead leaves her breathless…and wondering why the one man who could help her seems determined to thwart her at every turn.

Grady is keeping secrets from Sam that have him walking the line between attraction and duty. But when Sam becomes the target of a shadowy organization, Grady will have to choose between the law and the temptation of a woman who has him breaking every rule he’s ever known.

The job should have been easy, but when the bullets start flying, Sam learns nothing is as easy as it seems when you’re a Gun for Hire.


Sam was just trying to do her job, security for a Maui beach that should have been easy.  The neighbors antics made her job more difficult not only because she had to deal with them, but she had to deal with the police.  Any officer could have showed up but it had to be Sgt. Grady Roark.  Grady drove her crazy and she did the same, that’s why that couldn’t stand each other, or could they.

Sam found herself in the middle of something because of her job that she would soon regret.  Grady was the only one she could count on, but could they trust each other in order to stay alive and find out the mystery in Maui.

This was a very enjoyable book.  Sam is not a regular damsel in distress, she can fight her own battles and help solve the masteries that surround her.  I love the dynamic between her and Grady, he appreciates she is a strong woman and he encourages her to continue being strong in her personal and professional life. I am really starting to enjoy the romantic suspense genre.  If your a fan of either I would recommend this book.
