A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a private investigator, no one can handle the heat like the men of BOSS, Inc.
Megan O’Brien is at her wit’s end. Her three-year-old son has been kidnapped. No police, says the ransom demand. Fearing for her son’s life, Meg has no choice but to turn to her former bodyguard, Dirk Reynolds.
Dirk’s never forgiven Meg for the way she left him after their brief affair. But with bounty hunter Luke Brodie on his side, Dirk knows he’s got to help Meg rescue her son.
The few clues they’ve gathered send them spiraling into a murky world of big banking and international crime. Meg may be way out of her depths, but she’s seeing a side of Dirk she never suspected—one no woman could possibly resist.
I was quite looking forward to reading INTO THE WHIRLWIND, but I have to admit that it left me a little disappointed. At one point I considered not finishing it because I just wasn’t feeling it; the story was sounding old and I wondered if it was a reboot of an older book. But I persisted and I felt the story improved as it went along.
So why only 2 hearts? I know it shouldn’t bother me, but it’s hard to fall in love with a guy named Dirk because that is not a name I would consider sexy. I think the author was trying to make Meg seem strong by insisting she could play with the big boys when they went out on their recon missions, but all she did was sit in the car and wait for them to come back. She could have done that at home. After she’s reunited with her kidnapped three year old son, twice in the next two days she leaves him at home alone with the nanny. As a mother, if my son had been kidnapped, I wouldn’t leave his side ever again until he went to college. Maybe not even then. It would ruin his social life, but hey, at least I’d know he was safe. I also couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that without any evidence whatsoever, they were certain they knew who one of the kidnappers were. It turns out they were right, but nothing pointed to that person other than a hunch.
INTO THE WHIRLWIND is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. That being said, I get the impression you’d learn more about the start of Dirk and Meg’s relationship if you’d read INTO THE FURY first. If you like books with a lot of action involving kidnappings, boat chases, drownings and international criminals, this book just might be for you.
