Passion Punch by Tricia Leedom
April is a very hard working your woman. She works two jobs, goes to school & takes care of her little boy. After getting away from her father, she is happy on her own. But after her friends get into money trouble and are on a deadline from a loan shark, she has no choice if she wants to help, but to swallow her pride and ask her father for the money. It comes with strings attached. She has to move into his mansion for a few months. Right after the meeting with her father, she bumps into Jonas.
They had spent a steamy night together five years ago, and she hasn't heard from him since. Now he is back working for her father.
Jonas is getting one last chance, to prove himself before losing the job. He is a Black Ops operative. Five years ago he was pulled from the job, now he has a second chance. But it's not easy to do his job when there is April in the same house.
The story is very intense. High stakes spy work, dangerous missions and lots of emotions. The pace is fast, with lots of twists and turn, it kept me reading all through the night. :)
my favorite part about it was the characters, especially April and Jonas. I love the contrast between them. She is kindhearted and warm, where he is thought and cold, but they somehow work together.
And the writing is so good, no unnecessary fluff, just non stop action. :)

Key West Escape, #3
October 22nd, 2019 by Firefly Hill Press
adult, adventure, romance
When April Linus’ best friends find themselves in trouble with the Miami Mafia, the former heiress turns to an even more dangerous criminal for help… her father.
Not an easy decision for the young, single mother who found herself pregnant at nineteen and forced to choose between her trust fund and having a baby. April’s father agrees to loan her the money if she moves home for a few months so he can get to know his grandchild. Before she can decide what to do, she comes face to face with the last man she ever expected to see again… her father’s former bodyguard who disappeared five years ago after she slept with him.
Black Ops operative Jonas Ostergaard made a nearly fatal mistake the last time he was in Key West. After working his way into Philip Linus’ circle of trust, Jonas let the Arms Dealer’s beautiful, kindhearted daughter distract him from his mission. He was yanked off the job by his superiors, but now he’s back to stop Linus from selling a dangerous new technology on the black market.
Needing to prove himself to save his job, Jonas is determined to keep his distance from April this time. But when he suspects she knows more about her father’s illegal business dealings than she admits, he’s torn between protecting her and uncovering the truth.
Passion ignites when April and Jonas end up on the run dodging arms dealers in the steamy Amazon rainforest, but April wonders what kind of relationship she could have with a man who has more secrets than she does. A man who could disappear at any moment and leave her heart in tatters.
Trapped between loyalty to her father and a new allegiance with the man she’s falling in love with, April realizes none of it will matter if they don’t escape the jungle alive.
