I'm still pretty new to Baxter but I've been loving her US Marshals. Lots of action on all fronts. Oh, yeah. There was some sexy happening. Gah. Yes, please?
He wouldn't be satisfied with simply a taste. Mason's cock throbbed in time with his heart, so damned hard that it hurt. He wanted to bury himself deep inside of her. Relieve himself of the desperate want that pooled in his gut like molten metal. He wanted to fuck her hard and deep, make her scream his name before she came apart. And when they'd both found release, he wanted to start all over again and build them back to this place where nothing mattered but the two of them and what they felt. 
Aaaand a challenge is thrown down.  
"I don't beg."
"You will," he assured her. "Give me a second."
These two were pretty funny. They are both so damn stubborn and control freaky. This one just made me snort.
Sweet fiery hell, the man was stubborn!

Locked and Loaded (U.S. Marshals #5)

Locked and Loaded.... non-stop action with a side of steamy romance. Yes, please!

The quick of it is that Charlie's been named head of a task force set up to shut down an up and coming secret group that's up to no good...and likely packed full of high ranking officials. She's got to track them down, infiltrate and take em down. With the help of an infamous conman's son. 

I enjoyed Charlie and Mason. The two are freaking exactly alike. They're the "good guys" and determined to rise through the ranks--she wants to make a name for herself as a federal attorney and he wants to join the US Marshals which because of his family connections has been a no-go. They're stubborn, control freaks, and all in. And they drove each other crazy. It was pretty damn fun watching them butt heads and battle for power in their relationship. I think with anyone else they'd be really obnoxious but since they were so evenly matched it was just fun watching their power plays, how the relationship panned out, and that little spark they got when the other challenged them in some way.

There's lots of steam and chemistry between them. Holy cow the hotness. I didn't totally feel the falling in love part but that's mainly because the romance side takes a huge backseat to the action side of the storyline. But the attraction and makings of a romance? Oh, yeah.

And action packed it was! Going undercover, diamond smuggling and back alley deals, danger and intrigue and not knowing exactly what they were getting themselves into as they tried to gain the trust of someone they thought was connected to the bad guys. It was exciting and a little nerve wracking now and again.

All in all, Baxter brought an exciting adventure to the table. One where black and white blur just a little and the gray areas take over. Add in some scorching hot attraction and intriguing characters and Locked and Loaded made for an excellent escape.

Charlotte Cahill intends to take down an infamous diamond smuggler on the FBI’s Most Wanted list—and she intends to do it by the book.  That won’t be easy with the cocky new temporary deputy on her task force. Mason Decker feels like trouble, especially when his cool gaze wanders across her hot body . . .

After his time as a Customs officer, Decker has enough experience hanging out with criminals to know that working undercover means following your instincts, not the rules. It doesn’t take long for him to lock horns with Cahill. But when the sexy assistant U.S. attorney is accidentally dragged out of her orderly world and into the turn-on-a-dime tension of Decker’s deceptive games, she’ll find that nothing is as seductive as playing a new role . . .
