Blurb from the cover:

Rye Mallett, a fearless “freight dog” pilot charged with flying cargo to far-flung locations, is often rough-spoken and all business, but soft on regulations when they get in the way of meeting a deadline. But he does have a rock-solid reputation: he will fly in the foulest weather, day or night, and deliver the goods safely to their destination. So when Rye is asked to fly into a completely fogbound northern Georgia town and deliver a mysterious black box to a Dr. Lambert, he doesn’t ask questions.
As Rye’s plane nears the isolated landing strip, more trouble than inclement weather awaits him. He is greeted first by a sabotage attempt on his plane that causes him to crash land, and then by Dr. Brynn O’Neal, who claims she was sent for the box in Dr. Lambert’s stead. Despite Rye’s “no-involvement” policy when it comes to other people’s problems, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to the intrigue surrounding his cargo . . . and to the mysterious and alluring Brynn.
Soon Rye and Brynn are in a treacherous forty-eight-hour race to deliver the box before time runs out. With everyone from law enforcement officials to hired thugs hot on their heels, they must learn to trust each other so they can protect their valuable cargo from those who would kill for it.

My rating:  3.25 stars out of a scale of 5

My review:

I have read a lot of books by this author in the past and I just love her books. I usually try to get approved for an e-galley for her releases since I love her books so much. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to this time but fortunately  it is almost my birthday and I decided to spend this time reading things that I wanted to read! This was my first pick for Rebecca’s Reading Birthday Bash!

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. And funny enough, it ended up being the only book I had time to read for my Birthday Bash! It ended up taking me two weeks to read it because between work and all the various birthday celebrations, I had almost no free time for reading.

I’m not sure if its just because it took me so long to read and it was hard to focus on but this book ended up falling a little flat for me. I love Sandra Brown books but this one in particular seemed a little far fetched to me. The plot just kept getting more and more convuluted and hard to believe. And I didn’t love Rye’s character for a hero, he was pretty cowardly when it came to relationships and spent a lot of the books pushing Brynn away. The book was ok overall just not my favorite of hers (which as everyone knows is Deadline).
