When a drug overdose hits too close to home in the Kansas City police department, Detective Gene Page and a female officer go underground to flush out the local dealers.  Making a solid bust Gene is put in an awkward position when it’s revealed that one of the arrested dealers is actually a fed.

 

FBI Special Agent Rafael ‘Rafi’ Vega has been undercover for more than two years, working his way to the top of the Montoya cartel as Rastafarian drug dealer Suede Santana.  The FBI task force is after the big boss and his family using Rafi to gather incriminating information.

 

Told of the sting operation Gene throws caution to the wind and joins Rafi as his new accomplice.  Catching the Montoya family may prove easier than keeping their hands off each other.  Problem is, one wrong move and they’re both dead.

 

Testosterone fueled danger and drama.  The main characters face one challenge after another in Page’s Price, the tenth book in the popular Kansas City Heat series. Lovers with the same honorable goals, Gene and Rafi wade through the muck to foil the bad guys.  Hot, hot passion and secretive encounters spice the action packed story.  Page’s Price is a welcome addition to the long running series.

Real estate agent Michaela Donovan is looking for some fun in the sun on her week-long trip to Oahu.  However, it’s not her fellow sales contest winners who’re catching Michaela’s eye, but a handsome surfer named Kale Mahai.  Kale is as laid-back and sexy as they come and it’s not long before he and Michaela start up something hot.  But what’s meant to be a simple fling turns into something much more for both of them, proving that sometimes you can find love when and where you least expect it.

Jenna Byrnes turns up the heat in Aloha Kaua.  I loved being swept away to the island of Oahu and Ms. Byrnes does a fantastic job of bringing Hawaii to life in this story.  The romance, however, left me wanting a bit more.  There’s undeniable chemistry between Michaela and Kale, but I quickly grew frustrated with Kale’s insistence on not revealing much of anything personal.  I felt like I never got to really know him, which made Michaela falling for him a bit hard to believe.  Kale’s reasoning for keeping anything but the most superficial of details hidden didn’t really ring true to me either.  Because of this, Aloha Kaua was a miss for me.  That being said, I’ve read other books by Ms. Byrnes that I have enjoyed and I continue to look forward to reading (and listening to) her work.
