As many of you know I have become a fan of Jerrie Alexander. So, I am very privileged to bring to you her next book in her Lost and Found Inc Series, Cold Day in Hell. In this one we follow the very sexy Tyrell to Columbia where he rescues the very feisty Ana. Like most of Jerrie Alexander’s books we get lots of action and romance. For my full review be sure to keep reading after the book blurb.
Ex-Army Ranger Tyrell Castillo’s first mission for Lost and Found, Inc. goes awry when his contact is kidnapped, and he’s left scrambling for weapons and explosives. He’ll have to blow up a drug cartel’s compound, rescue the woman, and keep her safe while they cross the sweltering hot Colombian jungle.
Driven by the need for revenge, Ana Maria Vega Cisneros doesn’t want to be rescued. She wants revenge. She’ll risk her life to ensure the drug lord who killed her family suffers the same fate.
The cartel leaves a trail of blood on their hunt for Ty and Ana. When Ty receives the order to kill the drug lord with extreme prejudice, he and Ana will face the enemy head on. Can Ty protect the woman who’s hell bent on vengeance? The woman he’s grown to love?
Tyrell Castillo finds himself on his first mission for Lost and Found Inc in Columbia to rescue the girl who was supposed to be his contact. When he rescues her and blows up the cartels compound he realizes that Ana is not going to be very cooperative and gives him a struggle. Along the way through the jungle and dodging bullets Ty and Ana develop an attraction that Ty knows is off-limits. After being rescued and forced out of her country Ana finds herself in Texas and thinking constantly of Ty. When Ty finally comes to see her she is soon attacked by one of the cartel’s lieutenants. She realizes that even leaving her country can’t keep her safe. She must go back to Columbia and kill the head of the cartel. But, first she must convince Ty to go with her. When Ty realizes he cannot protect her and questions the loyalty of those around him, he realizes he must go to Columbia with Ana. When Ana and Ty finally express their feelings they acknowledge that nothing can really happen and just as their love broadens it must be squelched with the knowledge that they will go their separate ways. Can the two really say goodbye after their mission or with they choose to find love after all this violence has brought them together?
Jerrie Alexander has his yet another home run. I loved this book. I love Ty and Ana. Ana was so fun to read. She really was the best foil for Ty. She was no-nonsense and when push came to shove she pushed back. This made for a great love story. The fight they both put up just made is all that more satisfying when they were finally together. I also loved the Cartel portion of the story. This was something a bit different for Jerrie. Usually she writes a lot about serial killers or just crazy stalker killers. This was definitely a new line in the crime family that Jerrie Alexander has written about. I really enjoyed it and I think she really hit the nail on the head with the cartels. With everything we know about them it felt true and definitely possible. Overall, this is a wonderful addition to Jerrie Alexander’s stories. I look forward to Marcus’ story next. If you like a good suspense and a fantastic story you need to start reading this series now.
