Escaping from her abusive fiancé, Alexa O’Brien pulls into a gas station only to walk in on an execution. She’s in protective custody until she can identify Nicoli Zabat, Montreal’s mob boss, at his trial. But her safe house has been compromised, setting in motion a dangerous cat-and-mouse game.
Lieutenant Mike Delorme on the Sûreté Du Québec has spent the last eighteen months undercover in narcotics to take down Zabat, the man he blames for the death of his wife and unborn child. He doesn’t have the interest or patience to babysit a woman whose memory isn’t clear—but he’ll carry out his assignment to show the brass he’s a team player.
As Mike and Alexa dodge danger, it appears she’s in deeper than merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When the mafia hit she witnessed is revealed to be just the tip of an international terrorist’s plot, they must rely on each other to survive—but only if they can learn to trust their instincts and let love map out their next move.
In No Good Deed, Alexa needs to escape her fiancé! She has everything planned out and her fiancé has left the country. So now is the time to go. Unfortunately a snow storm started and then she was a witness to a brutal crime that left her injured and having to relearn how to do basic things. If she had left well enough alone when she realized things weren’t right then she would have never found herself in this situation.
Alexa goes into witness protection, where she finds herself isolated and alone. But free from her fiancé. When her handler is found dead, Mike steps in for babysitting duty. He is instantly put on alert because he knows something is wrong.
I really like Alexa. She has a very endearing quality to her. She feels compelled to do the right thing. After she meets Mike and it looks like something is definitely not right, Alexa realizes that she can’t control every situation but she wants to be a part of the equation.
Mike is really thrown off by Alexa. He really wants to protect her. But memories of his past keep coming up and he wonders if there is more to this mystery.
This is a good mystery/thriller, but I wouldn’t say that there was enough chemistry between the main characters to call it a romance. Alexa was a likable character but I wondered how she didn’t know something was not right about her situation. I didn’t care much for Mike in the beginning but he grew on me. The story lost some energy in the middle of the book and didn’t pick back up till the end. I did find myself caring about these characters though and wanted to find out how the story played out.
