Shiver [Hardcover]

I've finished "Shiver" by Karen Robards.

Product Description

When she swore off love, he was the last man she imagined would steal her heart.

If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

Daniel Panterro was certain he was going to die. Instead, by a stroke of luck, he was beaten to within an inch of his life and left for dead. But if he’s having a bad day, Sam’s day is about to get way worse. Danny knows he hasn’t seen the last of the vicious drug runners who kidnapped him from protective custody. His only recourse is to take his pretty savior hostage and force her to help him. There’s no going back for Sam and her four-yearold son, Tyler. They’re in way too deep.

With ruthless killers stalking their trail, Sam’s only choice is to trust this handsome, menacing stranger. But as she relinquishes control, Sam feels an unmistakable desire. Could she be tempted by Danny, who seems intent on protecting her and Tyler from even his own darkest secrets? And what is the price of falling in love with a man who operates on the edge of danger — her heart, her life . . . or both?

My Review:

Samantha Jones is a single young mother who repos cars to provide a roof for her and her 4 year old son Tyler.  She never expected to find a beaten and cuffed man in the trunk of a BMW she is suppose to repo.  She is knocked unconscious and thrown in to the trunk with the FBI man Danny Panterro/Trey posing as Marco.

Danny/Trey/Marco believes this is the end when he is kidnapped from protective custody and viciously beaten almost till the inch of his life when he spots a beautiful and young women looking down at him. 

When they escape Danny convinces Samantha to help him to safety with her Smith and Wesson.  Sam is very furious to be brought into this mess and just wants to get her son to safely.  When she arrives home she finds out her house been breached and her neighbor who is babysitting Tyler is brutally killed.  All of them are taken in protective custody and on the run from the viscous gangsters.

The relationship is slow building with a lot of sexual attention which concludes to a steamy love scene.
