He steps into the shadows to pursue a killer…

F.B.I. Special Agent Beckett O’Halleran values Family, Honor, and Loyalty. A botched undercover assignment results in the brutal murder of his partner. When the killer is set free by a Deputy Director on the take, Beck walks away from the Bureau. He vows to stop at nothing to avenge his partner’s death, including using an innocent woman. 

She is dragged into the shadows by her mother’s past …

A deadly secret from the past threatens Gwendolyn Tamberley’s life. Thrust into the crosshairs of a merciless psychopath who will destroy anyone who threatens his empire, she becomes the center of a firestorm between the Russian mafia, the F.B.I. and a former agent hell-bent on retribution. 

Will deadly secrets destroy them?

Gwen’s only hope is the man who’s been deceiving her. And Beck must choose between his obsession with vengeance and the woman who’s come to mean everything to him.

My thoughts:

Make room on my auto-buy list for another author because I am all in for TJ Logan's super-sexy, family-loving, crime-fighting O'Hallerans! Logan gave me everything I enjoy in this fast-paced debut: action, danger, suspense, passion, fully-developed characters, a hard-won HEA, and enough intriguing family members for future stories to eagerly anticipate. 

Beck and Gwen are both characters who engaged my interest and my emotions. Logan does a good job of bringing them to life as well as balancing the evolution of their personal relationship with the intrigue and danger surrounding them. The danger is hard-hitting and readers should be prepared for some gritty, on-the-page violence during this battle to bring a cold-blooded psychopath to justice. I was on the edge of my seat much of the time, flipping pages as fast as I could to find out what would happen next. 

If you enjoy page-turners that keep you riveted to the action - and the romance - give Deadly Secret a try. I'm looking forward to more from this newly published author and have already pre-ordered the next two books in the series: Deadly Disciple (19 Sept.) and Deadly Deception (16 Oct.).
