Against the Dark

(The Associates)

Written by Carolyn Crane

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Synopsis


Angel Ramirez left the safecracking game five years ago, and she’s worked hard to make amends and build an honest life. But when a beloved aunt is kidnapped, she must reunite with her girl gang to acquire the unique ransom: Walter Borgola’s prized diamonds. It’s a simple job that turns into a nightmare, thanks to a surprisingly clever—and searingly sexy—security guard named Cole Hawkins.


Cole is one of the Association’s most brilliant agents, under deep cover investigating a ruthless killer. He’s also running out of time: hundreds will die if he doesn’t stop the plan Borgola’s set into motion. Catching Angel is the break he needed--he promises not to turn her in if she poses as his lover and uses her unique talents to unlock the sociopath’s dungeon vaults.

But as pretend passions turn real, Cole regrets drawing Angel into his deadly game…and danger is closer than either of them could ever imagine.

Crystal N.'s Review

Angel used to break into safes but now she is an interior decorator. She only comes back to do one job to save her Aunt Abby. Only if she knew what she was getting herself into. Cole is an associate and they do the hard jobs that can really get you killed. He is undercover trying to find a safe to save people that are on a ship.

You wonder if these two would have still done what they did if they knew the consequences. I believe they still would have and maybe done a little more. This was an exciting and suspenseful read and I couldn't seem to get enough. The storyline was great and the author sure knew how to keep your attention and keep you into the story until the very end.

I have never read a book by this author before and I can say that I loved this one. It was easy to follow and the characters seem to get an extra boost with the action in this book. The more dangerous the better they love it. I just couldn't put this book down and the way these two came together was explosive. So I couldn't tell you which one was hotter. So I will warn you that this is an action packed romantic suspense.
