Outlawed Love by J.M. Krumbine

Kate Sharpe, US Marshal, is a woman on a mission with no time for love or romance. Her prisoner, the handcuffed hottie, Kyle Archer, just turned State’s evidence on notorious mobster Jonathon Bragan. Kate’s responsible for getting him from the courthouse to the jailhouse, but can she do it without losing her heart?

I wanted to like this book. I thought the idea behind it was a good one and even the plot was okay, it just fell short for way too many reasons. Maybe it's because I didn't like the main character Kate and her judgmental assuming ways. Or maybe it's because the story was way too predictable. I figured out the main twist in the book within the first couple of chapters and was never surprised again. And my biggest pet peeve was that somehow Kate and Archer think they're in love within the space of what three days where neither of them are truly honest with each other. Lust maybe, but love, I wasn't buying it. And I have to say it, I found the cover of the book to be pretty cheesy.

The book did have one bright spot for me - I really liked Archer. Even though he was a little tough, he still had a tender heart and I liked his muscled vulnerability. If you're looking for a quick read that doesn't keep you guessing, this book might be for you. But unfortunately it wasn't for me. 2 stars.

**I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
