  • Fearless pursuit

    By DLM inWyo
    If this has a five... read it! Logic, detail,and plot... Romance but fits with the story; a bright irreverent woman fights for truth, an old lover and finding peace with her officer dad who deserted her. 5 stars rating is not easy to give- but Freethy transcends just romance with logical and Intelligent suspense. Can’t wait for the next one!
  • Highly Recommend! Loved it!

  • Fearless Pursuit’s Action Started Immediately!

    By LoveDachshunds
    Fearless Pursuit moved quickly from the first page! It’s filled with suspense, action, intrigue and enough plot twists that I wasn’t able to guess what was coming next. I enjoyed how Jax and Maya’s stories intertwined together to create an exciting page turner. The book kept my undivided attention as Maya unraveled the story and secrets of her grandmother’s life. Through Maya’s investigation, Jax was also able to bring some resolution to his parents disappearance. It’s amazing how Barbara skillfully draws you into the story and the characters. One of my favorite parts of a series is catching up with characters from the past. I was glad to see some of my favorites from previous books were involved in this book. I highly recommend Fearless Pursuit and look forward to the next book in the series!

    This book is just another example of why Barbara Freethy is one of my favorite authors! If you enjoy romantic suspense, then you’ll absolutely love this book. The twists and turns that Jax and Maya face as they unravel the mystery of a spy ring and her grandmothers death kept me on the edge of my seat! Jax is an undercover FBI agent working as a bartender in a Russian club called the Firebird and Maya dreams of being a movie producer and thinks the story of her grandmothers death could be her big break. Maya thinks she can get the answers she’s looking for at the Firebird. While they both have different agendas, their paths seem to be connected in more ways than one. This book is the eighth installment in the Off the Grid: FBI Series. This book can be read as a standalone.
