On The Run by Jo Davis – Review & Giveaway
Detective Tonio Salvatore always puts his job first—until a beautiful piece of trouble has him questioning the rules he’s sworn to live by…
Tonio knows that loneliness is the price he has to pay to avoid being hurt again. But the strictly by-the-book cop never expected to be blindsided by a woman who pulls him right out of his self-imposed isolation.
Angel Silva isn’t just from the wrong side of the tracks—she’s on the wrong side of the law. She’s desperate to break free from her dangerous brother and his gang, but when a sexy new recruit joins them, Angel is more trapped than ever—because the ruthless Tonio Reyes isn’t what he seems. When she discovers the man she’s falling for is one of Sugarland’s finest, she’s forced to go on the run.
Instead of taking Angel into custody, Tonio finds himself risking his career to keep her safe. And as the beautiful woman tears down all his defenses, Tonio realizes he’ll risk his very life to set her free.
On the Run by Jo Davis is the 4th book in her Sugarland Blue series. I have enjoyed every book in this series, as it has everything, such as romance, suspense, great couples, exciting, action packed and hot steamy sex scenes.
Our hero in this book is Tonio, who is Chris’s (the hero in the last book) partner. He is working undercover to bring down a dangerous criminal and his gang. Tonio infilters Rab’s gang, but does not plan on meeting Angel, our heroine, who is the sister of the man he is trying to get. Angel runs the bar, and though she has many issues with her brother, she tries to ignore what he does and stay out of trouble.
When Angel meets Tonio, she finds herself attracted to him, but wants nothing to do with anyone who is part of her brother’s gang. But there is something about Tonio that makes him difficult to avoid. She has this feeling that he is not what he seems to be.
As their relationship heats up, the villain becomes even more vicious., putting both of their lives in danger. What follows is an exciting intense adventure, where Tonio finds himself in a predicament that he cannot get out of, and will do anything to keep Angel safe. Her brother reacts to what he perceives to be a betrayal from both of them, which is not good, as he is a madman.
Despite the help from Chris, and the Sugarland Police, Tonio is in deep trouble, finding himself in a near death situation. Angel, having fallen in love with Tonio, will work with the police to help find Tonio, but the villain is always a step ahead. Will they find Tonio in time? Will Angel be able to stop her crazy brother?
On the Run was so exciting and intense, I could not put this book down until I found out what will happen, as we raced to the thrilling climax. Jo Davis once again gives us a wonderful suspenseful and romantic story. Tonio and Angel made an unlikely, but wonderful couple. Davis continues her trademark of creating exciting stories, super hot couples, sexy romances, intense danger, suspense, and wonderful friendships. If you love romance, mystery, suspense, and great characters, then this series is a must read for you.
