Running back to Texas after an emotional disaster in San Francisco, J. L. Mitchell, microbiologist, is throwing herself into the development of a new, drought-resistant grain. Little did she expect to reconnect with Cole Martin, who rings al her bells, or to discover that her formula was at risk of being highjacked. As her work progresses, so does her relationship with Cole. When she is kidnapped, he brings all the recourse of The Phoenix Agency, where he has just become a partner, into play, hoping they will be in time.
This is the sixth in the Phoenix Agency series. Maybe I was getting a little overwhelmed by al the Phoenix hotties, but I felt this story was the least in the serie. J.L. (not really a name, right?) is a microbiologist, who is working on a new grain. And since this discovery can result in great profits for companies, there are a lot of people trying to convince her to work for them.
Meanwhile her relationship with Cole Martin is slowly evolving. While there is a lot of chemistry, J.L. is hesitant to become more involved. Her previous relationship didn’t end well, mostly because of her special ability.
Cole is yet another Phoenix hottie, who sees danger in every phonecall J.L. receives from companies who want to hire her. And surprise, surprise… several companies (or bad guys working at companies) try to force J. L. to work for them. In all I thought it a bit over the top and highly unlikely that there are three different companies willing to kidnap or hurt a certain person to gain access to a discovery. Of grain. Boring grain…
So yeah, I enjoyed the story, I liked to read up on the previous Phoenix couples which star in this book. But in all, I think it was the least attractive story in the series. Still, three out of five stars from me and I will still be looking out for new stories of Desiree Holt. Because they usually rock!
