    Awesome

    Loved this book! I think Luke is my favorite Archer. He works for Homeland Security but still feels the pressure of following in the shadow of his older brothers. With a Texas Ranger and a DEA agent to follow, those are pretty big shadows. Luke is hot on the heels of terrorists getting across our borders through Mexico and he is part of the task force working to shut them down. When he returns to Austin he is reunited with his high school girlfriend, Bella Shaw, since it is her land that is being used for the crossing. The spark between them is still as bright as ever and when the truth about what happened in the past comes to light they know that they need to explore what is between them once again. But how will this affect the investigation and how far will Luke have to go to keep Bella safe?? Definitely a book for the must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Some issues I struggled with...

    Luke Archer is the youngest of the brothers, and I have highly anticipated reading his story in this exciting series. And the heat was high between Luke and Bella. The high school lovers reunited were on fire, their chemistry was great, and the connection immediate even after all the years they had been apart. There was a third party, Ed, that was in the picture at the beginning, but then suddenly he wasn't an issue. I would have liked to see that resolved before Luke and Bella moved forward. I loved how Granny got some screen time as well and we got to know more about her past and the wild days of her youth. The suspense was intense, the topic popular and very much part of today's politics. And that's where the story fell for me, the political opinions that were repeated several times. They had a debate on the matter and constantly brought the immigration issues up and it felt unnecessary. It didn't add to the plot, yet took away much from the enjoyment of the story. Everyone reading the book knows that a homeland security officer will enforce the law, his personal opinions and mostly how he came forward with his opinion was unattractive. How he talked about the people crossing the border not being humans would have made me walk away from him and fast. Also, there were some statements of green card holders that I would like to fact check. Immigration is a sensitive subject matter in today's world and in my opinion the author took a risk to bring it up as it was. But when it was assumed that "the whole world was watching" when Texas college American football was on national television in the USA, I realized that 'the world' where the characters were operating in was rather limited and small. The romance between Bella and Luke was enticing and sexy. I liked how the past didn't bring too much angst into their relationship. I also appreciated that Judge humbled himself and apologized for his actions in the past. It was a great, happy ending for the family and the series. Towards the end of the book, it was more about action instead of building up the case, and that made the pages fly and bring intensity and interest into the tale. I really wish the author didn't have the need to bring their political opinions into their work so dominantly, taking away so much of the enjoyment of the tale. ~ Two Spoons

    Love the Archers

    Kathy Clark has done it again with her Austin Heroes! This is the third in this series but they can be read as stand alone leisure time enjoyment. Luke Archer works for Homeland Security behind a desk in Washington DC. He has emerged and traveled to Austin in hopes of stopping terrorists. This temporary assignment has led to a chance meeting with a love he lost fourteen years ago. Bella Shaw and Luke are made an interesting pair by Clark. Lots of Love, Betrayal, and action follow these two. Also a hoot in this installment we again meet the Archer granny, what a character!! Author and publisher via Netgalley have allowed me to read this for an honest review.
