I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice.  Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.

5 moons - "Breaking Bad by Karin Tabke

Breaking Bad (Bad Boys of the Bay Book 1) - Karin Tabke

Since the moment Karin Tabke announced that there would be more HOT cops to read after I read The Chronicles of Katrina with Simon…I was patiently waiting to read Breaking Bad. Breaking Bad is the spin-off to Karin Tabke's The Chronicles of Katrina, and in this book she introduces us to the sexy alpha male character, Jack Thornton. I thought Simon was hot, but Karin definitely top it off with Bad Boy, Jack. Geez!!! 

Special Agent Jack Thornton is assigned to help his former flame, Detective Stevie Cavanaugh with her Cain killer case. Stevie doesn't want anything to do with Jack though because he hurt her several years ago. I don't blame her for not wanting his help, but Jack still has the sexy dominant appeal that she loves that makes him irresistible to say no to. Oh…he had me hooked the minute he was introduced, so I definitely don't blame Stevie would not being able to say no every once in a while. The man knew how to sweet talk a woman and do all kinds of things in the bedroom, pool, etc. 

Stevie is focused on finding the Cain killer and so is Jack, but their past is going to creep up and get in the way. Jack Thornton is not the relationship kind of guy, and Stevie doesn't want to end up getting hurt again. In the mean time, the killer is stalking his next victim and it's up to Jack and Stevie to figure out who he's targeting and stop him. 

If you're looking for a book that is sizzling and sexy with lots of romance and suspense elements in it, Breaking Bad is for you. It's summer time still, so fore warned don't read this book when it's over 80+ degrees outside. It will make you hotter, especially with certain scenes with Jack. Stevie is one lucy gal for giving him a second/third chance. =) (Jack may have stole my heart over Simon and believe me I LOVED Simon in The Chronicles of Katrina) 
Let's not forget how much I adored Stevie in this book. She's one tough Detective and she handled Jack very well in certain parts of the book. I loved when Jack and Stevie were constantly going at it with each other. Jack definitely needed a woman to put him in his place and Stevie was that woman. 
There is also Simon and Kat that make an appearance in Breaking Bad, so for readers that loved The Chronicles of Katrina…you will love this book too. My favorite scene is when Stevie met Simon, and the other guys on Jack's team. I know I would've had the same reaction as Stevie. =) 

I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend it to romantic suspense readers out there. 

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
