One Touch More by Mandy Baxter

U.S. Marshals, Book 3

Synopsis: Strong, relentless, and lethal, he plays every angle to trap the worst criminals. But for the one woman he can’t resist, he’ll break all the rules…

For hotel manager Tabitha Martin, bad boys usually spell disaster. And her new guest promises just that, with his formidable build, tattooed biceps, and quiet take-no-mess attitude. Tabitha is already putting everything on the line to escape her vicious drug-dealing ex’s control for good—but a single sizzling moment in “Damien Evans’” arms has her wanting all the trouble he can give…

He’s been undercover too long and likes living dangerously too much. U.S. Marshal Parker Evans figures maybe that’s why he doesn’t immediately put Tabitha in custody. Sure, she’s his one chance to finally take down a major drug ring. But every minute he protects this mostly innocent blonde leaves his heart all too vulnerable. And the cost of desire could be a deadly endgame…

Review: Mandy Baxter / Amanda Bonilla is an author that I particularly like and having enjoyed the first volumes, I was curious to get into the rest of this beautiful suspense romance series. And I think I can say that this volume is currently my favorite of the series.

We discover a man bored with his life, who would like to get out, even if ultimately it is all he is. Parker Evans is a US Marshal whose job requires him to infiltrate many different environments including those of drug dealers. If creating a dual identity is very difficult, we can observe the consequences of such an action. After a rather difficult mission, our hero is back in the saddle and he now has to try to bring down a huge drug trafficking boss. For this, he will impersonate a resourceful dealer, while living in a hotel in the region, led by Tabitha, our young heroine. Tabitha, who herself, has to manage a large number of problems, although different ones from Parker. Indeed, she is trying to help her brother, after he had a problem as a dealer and he is doing everything possible to change. Yet already overwhelmed by this, she must also deal with her ex, another trafficker, who threatens to bring down her brother down with him if she does not leave her hotel to manage his business. In short, you’ll understand that it’s a rather complicated situation for both sides of our protagonists.

But when our two heroes meet, an irresistible attraction arises, putting them in front of a fateful choice. Can Tabitha trust a trafficker working with her ex? Can Parker be with a woman who lets a criminal working on her workplace? Is she part of the organization? And is it not contradictory to tie a relationship with a suspect? I was curious to see how the two would solve their problems and move forward together. Their story is rather touching even if it is true that as always we want them to reveal their secrets and to tell the truth early on while their relationship becomes more and more intense, but in any cases, the whole environment with the traffic was really interesting and I was quickly taken by the story.

So as you see, I had a great time with this new novel and I am curious to know what will happen for the next couple and so the next book.

  1. It sounds like there is a lot going on in this book.

    An author that a good friend of mine loves. I hadn’t realised she was known as Amanda Bonilla as well as Mandy Baxter and am wondering if my friend did.
