AT ANY COST (U.S. Marshals #4)

AT ANY COST                          MANDY BAXTER

Fast, cunning, and driven, he'll do whatever it takes to nail the most violent federal perps. But she is the one danger he'll never see coming… 

She can't remember when she wasn't afraid. She can't go to the police. And "Olivia Gallagher" is only a day away from fleeing her Idaho wilderness life before biker gang leader Joel Meecum finally catches up with her. So keeping her rugged new neighbor at arm's length is the only safe play. Until Livy can't resist one last hungry chance to feel alive…

For U.S. Marshal Nick Brady, taking his vacation next door to Meecum's ex-girlfriend seemed the smartest way to find him. But suddenly, nothing is making sense. How could this feisty, straight-talking brunette ever get mixed up with Meecum's brutal crew? And why is he breaking his oath and getting so close that all he wants is to keep her safe? Now as the clock ticks, Nick and Livy's only chance at escape may be the one they can't survive…

This story opens with U.S. Marshall, Nick Brady being called into his bosses’ office and being dressed down for working cases that he is not assigned, but also he does not work for that unit. Being new to the Marshalls he is expected to do 6 months of court duty. This for him is boring, so on his off hours he takes a fugitive file off someone’s desk and tracks that person down making an arrest. Which is probably why he is not fired but told to take a month off. Before leaving the office he grabs a file he was working on and decides to follow up. He is looking for Olivia Gallagher who has been on the run for four years. Going through the file he notices some similarities with a person in a small town in Idaho. She goes by Livy and he decides to go there and check her out since he has a month off. After being there for a couple of days she gets stuck in snow and he feels that this is his chance to get close to her. After helping her and then later with groceries he is fairly certain that she is the person he is looking for. But there is someone else looking for as well. The person that made her run in the first place. His name is Joel Meecum he runs a biker club, gang and has a 5,000 dollar reward out for her. Nick thinks that she is Joel’s ex-girlfriend, but could not be farther from the truth. Nick and Livy start to spend more time together and they both like one another, but they each need to tell the other one what is going on. They are getting ready to do this, and tell each other their love for one another when Joel and 4 of his crew show up to now take them both out. This was a good book full of sex, and mystery when you find out why she was running, and if they are going to make it out alive, and if they are going to make it period. A good book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave 4 stars. Follow us at
