She’s a woman worth fighting for.
Abby McKinley misses her sexy former neighbor from across the hall more than she expected—because he means more to her than she was ready to admit. When she learns the feeling is mutual, she balks at the idea of getting involved with a man who is sure to break her heart. But the pull between them is too strong to deny. Putting caution aside, she agrees to meet up with him in Maui and see where things go. Then, just as she begins to lose her heart to him, her trip to paradise turns into a waking nightmare.
He’ll do whatever it takes to make her his.
With a series of bad relationships under his belt, FAST Bravo member Kai Maka is ready for something real, and he wants it with Abby. Spending time with her on his home island of Maui gives him the perfect chance to show her how good they could be together. But a shadow has followed him home. A deadly drug cartel has set its sights on him, putting him and those close to him in the crosshairs. When unimaginable tragedy strikes, Kai is powerless to stop it. In the wake of that loss, he’s more determined than ever to keep Abby safe. But he can’t protect her from a threat he can’t see coming. If he can’t stop it in time, Kai will be forced to watch the woman he loves die.
Fast Fury is a friends to lovers story set in Hawaii! What a gorgeous setting! Kai works for the DEA and Abby is a pharmaceutical sales rep. Abby has a work trip to Maui and Kai plans to show her his island (pun intended!). Kai realizes he wants Abby to be more than his friend and is determined to convince her they would be great together.
However, Kai’s cousin is a drug dealer. There is a bounty on Kai’s head. Abby ends up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and finds herself the target of a crazed woman out for revenge. All this while Kai and Abby are trying to see if their relationship is meant for more. Cross really knows how to write great romantic suspense. The plots are always detailed and in depth, the characters, even secondary and tertiary, are robust.
Fast Fury gives you all the steamy romance you want with the action to keep the book’s plot plowing forward! Cross’s books always leave me satisfied and I love that consistency!

I love this author. I wanted to do this ARC but I had too much committed already. I still have parts of her other series to finish too. I’m glad you thought it was good. Anne – Books of My Heart
Fantastic Review 🙂 The cover is cool, but made me think it was a military focused romance at first. The book sounds really interesting, I might have to give it a go. 🙂
