Ranger Proud, Ranger Strong...
Texas Rangers swear to uphold the law to the letter. But Captain Ross Sinclair isn't about to play by the rules to destroy a major human trafficking cartel—especially now that the only chance to break this case just strode into his life with attitude as long as her gorgeous legs. Heiress Emm Rothschild is taking names and raising hell as she searches for her abducted sister and niece. And the evidence this wild-child turns up sets off a lethal chain of events—challenging Ross to keep her reckless determination and seductive daring up close and dangerously personal.
Now a blindsiding betrayal has Emm heading straight into harm's way. And Ross will have to put his badge and career on the line to get justice—and prove to the woman he loves that a Ranger's word is a forever bond.

I was initially attracted to this book by the cover because it’s yummy. Hot and svelte guy…yes please! The blurb sealed the deal for me. I love romantic suspense. It’s easily one of my favourite sub genres. This is where my love for this book ended. I don’t take this lightly and I absolutely hate doing it, but this was a DNF (did not finish). I even hate typing that. When I start a book, I need to see it through to the end. I need to know where the characters end up and how they got there. So when a DNF happens, it kinda makes me sad.
I couldn’t connect with either of the characters in this book. Emm and Ross had zero connection. I managed to make it 30% into the book and they were still completely irritated with each other, with a glimmer of physical attraction. Ross didn’t have the time of day for Emm, and she was polite to him in a condescending way. Now, of course this could have changed, but since I couldn’t finish the book, I’ll never know.
Emm is looking for her kidnapped sister and niece…at least I think she was. I don’t know about anyone else, but if I was searching for my beloved family members that have been taken by a human trafficking cartel, I’d probably be pretty focused on that. Emm seemed more passionate about the historical buildings that she was trying to preserve. So not only did I not sense any connection between the hero and heroine, but I couldn’t sense Emm’s connection to her family or her worry for them.
I swear my eyes were glazing over at times. This book is very wordy. I like detail, I need detail, but there was so much going on in every sentence. And it wasn’t interesting stuff. I found myself playing around with the sentences after I read them to see if I could shorten them. Most of the time I could!
This review is short because I didn’t finish the book. I figure reading 30% of a book is enough to decide if I want to devote my precious reading time to it. This one didn’t make the cut. And I feel horrible about that.
