DEA Agent Dale Nelson paid the ultimate price for her service when her wife was killed by drug dealers. Now she’s assigned to a task force investigating the suspects and she doesn’t need the distraction of the beautiful but infuriating reporter, Lindsey Ryan. Despite her initial resistance, Dale discovers that Lindsey is as talented and capable as she is attractive. Will she get a second shot at love, or will the peril of her job rob her of the chance at happiness again?

Investigative reporter Lindsey Ryan will do whatever it takes to get the truth. As a favor,she agrees to anchor what is supposed to be a puff piece on the DEA. However, despite the reluctance of the striking Agent Nelson to share any information, Lindsey learns power and politics are at play, and exposing the truth could not only be dangerous, but could jeopardize her chance at love.

My View:

Its Here!!
This is a much awaited follow up to Lay Down the Law . For reasons unknown the task force has been dismantled. However,some of the members are not willing to let go of the mission. This book focuses on Dale as she tries to work the case with out star reporter Lindsey finding out and blowing the whole operation. Can Dale keep the secret while fighting her attraction to the lively journalist or will Lindsey get herself into something too intense to get out of with or with out Dales help?

I totally adored Lay Down the Law and was thrilled when Above The Law hit the shelves(so to speak) and a more than a little relieved that some of the questions we were left in the dark about might be answered. Ms Taite delivered and then some….all the while adding more questions, Tease!! I like the mystery and intrigue in this story. It has many “sit on the edge of your seat” scenes of excitement and dread (like watch out kind of thing) and drama. Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen, SURPRISE! Here is a twist to make you crazy. The farther in to the book the more questions arise while the mystery deepens and you are more and more hooked, what a wonderful experience! I can’t wait until the next book in the series is released, I know I will be giddy with relief. In the meantime I will continue to savour the anticipation. Well done Ms Taite,well done indeed!
