Review – Take Me Deeper (Texas Bounty #1) by Jackie Ashenden

Jackie Ashenden’s tantalizing series introduces the men of Lone Star Bounty: three badass bounty-hunter brothers who will have readers begging to be caught.

Even as a Green Beret, Zane Redmond hasn’t faced a tougher mission than going home again. Loyalty to his brothers is the only reason he’s back in Texas, not that he intends to stay for long. Zane sure as hell isn’t going into the family business. One last bounty and he’s done—or so he thinks. Nobody warned him that his fugitive happens to be a red-hot brunette with a smart mouth, a body made for sin, and a brutal cartel on her trail.

Bad circumstances and worse choices have left Iris Callahan in a desperate situation. After getting arrested for a drug drop gone wrong, she skipped bail and hit the road to avoid testifying. Now the cartel wants Iris silenced forever, and she’s just lucky that Zane catches her before they do. Handcuffed to a bed, she surrenders to the cool-as-ice bounty hunter in order to survive. But as the chase heats up, Zane sneaks past her emotional defenses—and Iris is in too deep to let him go.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

First impression? Two of the three brothers are a-holes! And because of that first impression, it was really hard for me to get in to this book. Yes, the lead hero has awesome qualities and the heroine definitely needed to be saved, but once that first impression hits, it’s hard for me to get over it. Sorry….it’s just me.

Zane just finished a mission as Special Forces/Green Beret. After his two brothers quilted him into coming home to help with the family business, he reluctantly agrees to take one job before he re-ups. But this one job turns out to be a little more than he bargained for, and taking a lot longer than he originally thought.

Iris is the job. She skipped bail and is on the run, not only from the law, but from the cartel who wants to make sure she keeps her mouth shut. So when a member of the cartel showed up at her job on the same day and time as Zane, she knew her time was up. Trying to get away from both was going to be impossible, so guess who she ends up with? Yep, you guessed right. Once Zane learns a little more about what Iris’ deal is, the chemistry and everything that goes along with it heats up pretty quick for these two.

I was thinking that this was going to be a little more military, but there was still enough drama to keep me interested in the story line. These two have more than enough baggage to work out and they seem to find a way to get through it with each other. And those moments are pretty steamy. I’m going to assume that the remainder of the series will involve the other brothers. But like I said, first impressions and all. Maybe since I enjoyed the author’s writing, I’d give it a try…
