A Shot at Love
Will Cook for Love #2
By Peggy Jaeger
Releasing October 3rd, 2017
Lyrical Shine

In A Shot at Love (Will Cook for Love #2) by Peggy Jaeger, Gemma Laine never imagined her life would be turned upside down as much as it is when she witnesses a triple murder. But when she becomes the target of the mob, she has no choice except to trust FBI agent Kyros Pappandreos to keep her safe. The question is -- will Kyros be able to protect her, so they can have their chance at happy ever after; or will the pair be forever on the run in order to stay ahead of the person determined to kill Gemma?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Jaeger, and what a book it was since it had everything I love in a romantic suspense. Really, there was edge-of-your-seat suspense, a good dose of romance, a fast-paced storyline and compelling dialogue that had my eyes glued to the pages, determined to discover what would happen every time Kyros and Gemma found themselves in trouble. How did the bad guys know where they constantly were? Will Kyros discover where the leak in information is coming from before it's too late? The way this story started drew me in immediately, because the hero has such a commanding presence as an FBI agent that just made me want to learn more about him.

As for the dialogue, it was wonderfully-crafted and completely compelling due to the main characters back stories and everything they go through on their journey to happy ever after including someone determined to take Kyros down as well as seeing that Gemma doesn't make things difficult for the notorious mob boss after her. Furthermore, the main characters were incredible and I loved every moment they conversed, as the heroine has serious trust issues that make her argue and question Kyros every chance she gets because it's not fair that she needs to stay hidden due to what she witnessed. At times, the heroine had me wanting to laugh at how difficult she can be, but at least she provides a challenge for the hero. While the hero, he's confident, a good agent and will do anything to protect the heroine, which is proven by all that he does for her. I also liked that he was willing to help her get her life back, even though things could get very dangerous. 

Overall, Ms. Jaeger has delivered a remarkable read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance wonderful and shows how special Kyros thinks Gemma is; the secondary characters had me totally hooked, especially Rick because of the way he banters with the heroine and teases her with the nickname he has for her; and the ending had me absolutely delighted by the hero's determination to win the heroine's heart because there's no way he can let her get away. Then again, how could Gemma possibly resist Kyros? However, it was the final chapter that wrapped this story up perfectly, because of this couple's conversation when it comes to their families, their future and how good the heroine is at her career. Will Kyros be impressed by her skills behind her camera? I would recommend A Shot at Love by Peggy Jaegar, if you enjoy Romantic Suspense, the opposites attract trope, or books by authors Kari Lemor, Sharon Sala, Brenda Novak and Katie Ruggle. Furthermore, this is a story I highly recommend!

Nothing’s impossible when love is on the menu. In Peggy Jaeger’s luscious series, the only thing more tempting than a delicious meal is a truly delectable romance . . .Look for exclusive recipes in each book!

Photographer Gemma Laine is looking for arresting faces on the streets of Manhattan when her camera captures something shocking—a triple murder. In that moment, she becomes a target for the mob—and a top priority for a very determined, breathtakingly handsome, FBI special agent. With deadlines to meet and photo shoots on her calendar, Gemma chafes at the idea of protection, but every moment she spends under his watchful eye is a temptation to lose herself in his muscular arms . . .

With two of his men and one crucial witness dead, Special Agent Kyros Pappandreos can’t afford to be distracted. But Gemma is dazzling—and her connection to Kandy Laine’s high-profile cooking empire makes her an especially easy mark for some very bad people. Keeping her safe is much more pleasure than business, but as the heat between them starts to sizzle, Ky is set to investigate whether they have a shot at love . . .
