I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
A group of women walk into a bar…
Sounds like the start of a crude joke, right? Yeah, well, the joke's on me because I'm investigating the gorgeous one in the heels with the great ass. Jensen Montgomery.
Now I'm treading that area between right and wrong, good and bad, where sin and honor meld to become gray. Not that I haven't been here before. Hell, I’ve made my career in the gray. I never hesitate going to battle when my gut tells me I'm right. And right now, my gut—among other things—is speaking loud and clear about Jen Montgomery.
She’s in a bad situation. Not just bad—deep and black and ugly.
And I’m about to make it worse. She just doesn’t know it yet.
A soon-to-be CEO and an FBI agent caught up in a bad situation. How can this possibly lead to a Happily Ever After? Bad Situation tells the story of Jen and Eli, who come from different worlds and all. Jen and Eli seem like an odd couple at first, but not surprisingly they can’t resist each other. I’ve enjoyed reading their story!
“He’ll do anything for me—I know it.”
Jen is a hardworking woman. From a young age it was clear that she would take over her father’s company, something she doesn’t mind at all. She takes pride in her work, although she acknowledges the long hours don’t do her social life any good. Eli is an FBI agent who just has started working a ‘normal’ FBI job. He’s done with undercover work and pretending to be one of the bad guys, so white-collar crime is his new thing. When Jen and Eli meet, both are intrigued. But unknowingly to Jen, she’s a person of interest for the FBI… And Eli is one of the investigators…
“He says nothing, but he tips his head and cocks a brow. An invitation. A silent one … but still, an invitation all the same.”
Bad Situation is the first book in the new ‘Montgomery Series’ by Brynne Asher. Like her other books there’s a sweet yet strong leading lady, an Alpha hero, a few bad guys and a whole bunch of friendly, supportive side characters. And if you wonder about a number of these people, yes you have met them in previous books. Always good to see beloved characters again! Since this is book 1 in the series, a few hints are dropped for the next books to come, I can’t wait to read them.
“Her hair brushes my skin, reminding me what it was like when she was in my arms and how much I want her there again.”
Jen and Eli are an awesome couple together. Yes, their start is a bit rough (who wouldn’t be upset when finding out hunky guy is investigating you for bad stuff), but when Eli starts to listen to his gut feelings all changes fast. Together Eli and Jen are going after the truth, while getting to know each other very well (wink wink, not just their personal favorite foods and movies). I love Jen and Eli, they bring out the best in each other and are very supportive. I love their Happily Ever After, one big swoon!
“There’ll never be a day that I don’t track you.” Tears escape her eyes even as a smile breaks across her beautiful face. “I’ll be happy for you to creep on me. Forever.”
