Collision Force by C.A. Szarek

The last thing Andi needs is a cocky FBI agent…
Badboy FBI agent Cole Lucas always gets his man. So when the unthinkable happens and one gets away, Cole grits his teeth and hunts the human trafficker all the way to Antioch, Texas, where he collides with Detective Andi MacLaren.

Cole doesn’t do small towns and he doesn’t get involved with women he works with, but Andi tempts him in ways he doesn’t want to acknowledge.

Two murders, her partner shot and leading the investigation on her own, the last thing Andi needs is a cocky FBI agent that sees her as no more than a tagalong.
As a widow and single mother, she’s used to being on her own. When Cole gets stuck without a place to stay, crashing on her couch puts them in dangerous territory.

Attraction and passion bring Andi to a place she left behind when her husband died.
Her three-year-old son quickly wiggles his way into Cole’s heart, and he starts contemplating things—family, love—that he’d never planned for himself.

Can being forced to work together make them stronger or will their differences jeopardize their case and their hearts?

Review: An action packed goodie with likable characters and an adorable kid and a great story. It had wit charm and a whole lot of adorability in the form of the kid. And even though, Cole was a mouthy somewhat cocky FBI agent with a lone Wolf bad boy image, he really did belong with Detective Andi MacLaren, even if they had a rocky beginning. They complimented one another quite nicely and even if they didn't quite know it at the time. And Andi's son Ethan from her first marriage was really adorable managed to get along with Cole quite nicely. So if you want an action packed really good read, pick up a copy and enjoy. -Cassandra G.
