No Limit (Armed and Dangerous #1)
by L.P. Dover
Murder. Lies. Betrayal.
I deal with those things every day. My name is Jason Avery, one of the best undercover agents in the country. I have yet to fail on a mission, which is why I’ve been sent to Vegas. Countless women have been abducted, tortured, only to show up dead in the middle of the night. It’s my job to find out which sick fuck is responsible. Unfortunately, every lead sends me to a dead end; at least, until Aylee McFadden shows up at my door.
Aylee is a stubborn, headstrong FBI agent and also one of the sexiest women I’ve ever seen with a gun. In joining me, it gives us the leverage we need to get on the inside. She fights me at every turn, but soon realizes there’s more to me than tattoos and a dirty mouth. I can’t get enough of her. Now that we’re in the game, we’re one step closer to solving the crime. However, gambling with money isn’t what the big boys want. They want the one thing I’m not willing to give.
It’s a no limit game, and if I back down I lose everything. I will lose her.
First of all, how hot is that guy on the cover?! I had no problem picturing him as Jason throughout the whole book and it made it that much more enjoyable. I mean, he just has the cocky, arrogant look down pat, doesn't he?!
Okay, now that I'm done mooning over the cover model let's get to the story. This was my first L.P. Dover read so I wasn't really sure what to expect but where could she possibly go wrong with an undercover cop and an FBI agent? And character wise, she did an awesome job. I fell in love with Jason's cockiness and Aylee's stubborness from the get-go and couldn't wait to see how everything worked out for them.
Jason has been working undercover in Vegas for the past month when the FBI sends Aylee in. To say that Jason is a total ass towards Aylee in the beginning in a major understatement. You see, Jason works alone and doesn't want the FBI coming in and taking over... But once Jason and Aylee decide it's better to work together than against each other? That's where things really pick up.
To find out who has been killing prostitutes around Vegas, Jason and Aylee have to get up close and personal with each other by posing as a prostitute and a john... And of course spending all that time together ends with them getting up close and personal in the bedroom. I wish I could say that the sex scenes were smoking hot, especially when picturing that cover model, but unfortunately they left a lot to be desired in my opinion.
Luckily, the action and suspense makes up for the lack of heat during the sexy times. Watching Aylee and Jason kick ass totally made this book for me. And the twists and turns definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. Not once did I have a clue who the villain was and that's not something that usually happens to me, so kudos to L.P. Dover for stumping me!
Overall, No Limit was a great read and while I was hoping for a little more at the end, it was definitely enjoyable. I can't wait to see where she takes this series and I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for the next book.
