THE ROOKIE by Kimberly Kincaid
Kimberly Kincaid once again burns up the pages with The Rookie, book one in a new series, The Intelligence Unit series.
The last time we saw Xander Matthews he was assisting the Remington police and Station Seventeen to end an arson and killing spree and stay out of trouble after snitching on an acquaintance. Forward a couple of years and police recruit Xander wants two things: to help people and keep his dark, dangerous past in the past. Working on a case he unexpectedly runs into the beautiful, arrogant, ADA Tara Kingston.
Tara tried to prosecute him in the arson case, but higher powers prevailed. Xander is temporarily moved in the Intelligence Unit to assist on Tara’s latest case and while working together to protect a CI they find an attraction that is off the charts. Their chemistry sizzles and Ms. Kincaid is incredible in her descriptions of the sexy time shared between these two. As the passion flares hotter and hotter, from attraction to all out sizzle, they need to be careful as they work together to outwit and catch this dangerous killer before it’s too late.
I totally loved reading The Rookie. Ms. Kincaid did a fantastic job creating her characters, making them realistic, keeping the story interesting, making me forget the world around me and not letting me go until I turned the last page, wanting more. Ms. Kincaid kept this reader mesmerized with the need to see how Xander and Tara would find and capture this guy before he hurt anyone else. I highly recommend The Rookie to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
