Josh has always been impressed with Cody and her ability to take care of herself. He has seen her bruised and bloodied after bringing in a skip and he still thinks that she is the hottest, most beautiful woman, he has ever seen. Josh begins a determined seduction of Cody and finds himself more than a little pleased when she agrees to partner with him in the pursuit of an accused murderer. When unexpected danger arises, Josh begins to wonder if they'll live to see another day and he realizes that he just might want more from Cody than a quick fling.
Karen Kelley gives readers an exciting romance that lacks nothing as it delivers humor, action, suspense and an abundance of sensuality. Cody's character is written with incredible realism-complete with insecurities and flaws that make her human. Cody's facade of being a cold, calculating bounty hunter is transparent to Josh. He sees that she has suffered emotionally and is willing to take some of the burden off her shoulders. While Josh is shamelessly attracted to Cody and may have initially wanted a simple sexual relationship, he soon wants more, much more, with her. Convincing her that they belong together may be difficult.
HELL ON WHEELS showcases Karen Kelley's superb writing skills which grow stronger with each new release. This review comes with a high recommendation; it definitely belongs, and will remain, on my keeper shelf.
