***Review*** Dead Heat (Bluegrass Series #3) by Kathleen Brooks
In the third book of the Bluegrass Series, Paige Davies finds her world turned upside down as she becomes involved in her best friends’ nightmare. The strong-willed Paige doesn’t know which is worse: someone trying to kill her, or losing her dog to the man she loves to hate.
FBI Agent Cole Parker can’t decide whether he should strangle or kiss this infuriating woman of his dreams. As he works the case of his career, he finds that love can be tougher than bringing down some of the most powerful men in America
Nicole’s Review ~
I think this is probably my favorite of the series, I love when a story is finally complete and you get to see how everything played out. Plus hello, Cole *sigh*, I have absolutely loved watching Cole and Paige relationship blossom. Never mind the fact that we get to met all of Paige’s brothers, this time Cy is brought into the picture.
The bantering between Cole and Paige is so refreshing, add in a little bit of the Rose Sisters and you are in heaven giggling your booty off. Cole as the FBI Agent in charge of seeing the criminal ring brought to justice and Paige the best friend who has now been placed in danger must work together. Cole comes up with what he thinks is a perfect plan of living with and acting as Paige’s boyfriend is the best way to protect her. When Cole has to come face to face with all the brothers it is hilarious and endearing how he does not back down from them.
There is a whole lot of suspense from the start to the end. We pick up right where Risky Shot ends, Kenna and Danni have been shot. Paige then starts hearing and seeing things that are starting to scare her, thankfully Cole is always there protecting her. Paige is so confused throughout most of the book because her pretend boyfriend seems like her real boyfriend and men being dense Cole doesn’t realize that she thinks this is all an act. Boy oh Boy when he realizes his mistake it might cost him the woman he has grown to love.
So if you are looking for a sweet, funny, suspense filled romance this is the book for you. Just a reminder you do need to read the first two books in this series.
