Product Description

He would protect her body, but she had to protect her heart.

For Raegan "Rae" Storm, the trouble in her life is as permanent as the tattoo stamped on her shoulder. After witnessing a double murder, she becomes the target of a bloodthirsty mafia and enters the Witness Protection Program in exchange for her testimony. With her life on the line, the last thing she expects is to lose her heart to the mysterious, handsome Quinn Bronson, the U.S. Marshal protecting her.

Driven by honor and his commitment to his job, Bronson rescues Rae from threats time and time again, but fighting off hit men is easier than ignoring his attraction for the one woman he should never desire: the witness. As danger presses in on Bronson and Rae, neither knows whom they can trust, and their forbidden love could be what destroys them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love should always win. 11 February 2016
By Elizabeth E Neal - Published on

As I'm writing this, I'm suffering from a book hangover. I know we've all been there, so you feel my pain. I can't put my finger on any one thing that made me love this story, which means, in my opinion, it was the book as a whole that just did it for me.

The book starts pretty much in the thick of things and gives you a direct look into what Reagan, aka Rae, Storm will deal with for the duration of the book. (Psst...I love the little rebellion that Rae later explains regarding her name change...her given name was Liberty Raegan Storm.) Rae is helping her brother, True, (Are their names giving you the idea of their upbringing?) retrieve a prototype he created from his previous employer, a man that fired him after stealing his work. Grrr. Granted, committing B&E to get your property back isn't the smartest move, but I can understand True's motive, along with Rae's desire to help her brother. True is the only family Rae has left as their parents disowned her and she's essentially become an outcast in their area.

In a nutshell, their parents weren't exactly upstanding citizens and a shootout, for which Rae wasn't even there during, resulted in the death of not only her parents, but a DEA agent also. Since then, Rae has essentially become a pariah once people learn her last name. Yeah, that whole don't blame the child for the sins of the parents mantra hasn't helped her at all. *Later it's explained where True was at that time, and why, therefore he wasn't cast in the same tarnished light.*

So, of course nothing good comes of a B&E, and it goes extremely wrong here...Rae, while True is inside, witnesses a double murder involving a prominent judge and a crime family. *Ruh roh Shaggy.*

Flash forward to Rae in a jail cell, for safety purposes, and the beginning of her new life is starting. The three U.S. Marshalls, being all judgy towards her, two more so than the third, the hero, explain how things will be while awaiting the trial so she can give her testimony. Her brother has already been relocated.

It doesn't take long before the first attempt is made on Rae and things quickly continue to go downhill. It's apparent to one of the Marshalls that things aren't as they should be.

That agent is Quinn Bronson, although he is referred to as Bronson almost throughout the whole book. *I'll touch on that later.* It's obvious that he and Rae are extremely attracted to each other, but Bronson has it in his head that she is exactly like his ex-fiancée, Heidi, a woman with a shady father that swore she wasn't like him, only to be exactly like him. I will say that was twelve years ago and Bronson is still living by that hard earned lesson about trusting the wrong person. One difference between the two women is that Bronson thought he was rescuing Heidi from her past, as she seemed to want that, but Rae isn't asking to be rescued. Yes, she wants to be safe from the men after her, but that pertains to Bronson's job where she's concerned. As for Bronson, the man, she just wants him to see her, Rae, not as an extension of her family. Unfortunately, that past continually impacts how he views Rae, even going so far as to verbally and emotionally hurt her after a few times after he's gotten too close. Yes, he hated himself for doing it, but thought it was the best way to draw the lines. I personally think it was his way of protecting himself. *head smack needed*

Rae testifies and then begins her new life as Raelyn, far away from Bronson and with the knowledge that they were never going to be anything together because of her past.

When circumstances keep bringing Bronson back into her life, of course with both still craving the other, things take a turn as Bronson can't fight what he feels anymore and they spend a hot night together. Rae is sure this is a turning point for them and she's right...but not the way she hopes. Bronson again sees her as being the same as his ex when he reads way too much into something she innocently says and bluntly tells Rae it should've never happened, don't contact him again, etc. *Oh man, the pain.*

As Bronson is now helping to reassign True, who has again made a bad choice, the identity of the traitor is revealed. Bronson and True make a getaway and head towards Rae to protect her, but it isn't long before the truth is twisted to paint Bronson as the bad guy. (How's that feel Bronson? The tables are turned and you're innocent, yet no one will believe you.)

Will Bronson and True arrive in time? Will they be able to save Rae from the determined killers? Will Bronson realize the truth about Rae and embrace how much she means to him? What happens when Rae is forced to start over again, although this time with True? Will Bronson let her go or will he fight for her? If he fights for her, will Rae give him yet another chance?

One-click now and read this book. I absolutely loved it. I will say it's book three in the series, yet I didn't feel at all lost without having read them. I do plan to go back and read them though.

Now as I mentioned above and said I'd get back to, in regards to the hero being known as Bronson almost the whole time. Rae didn't learn his first name until almost the end of the book. While I instantly thought that was very weird and didn't care for it, the more I thought about it, I realized it made perfect sense. It was another way for Bronson to hold himself back from Rae and hide from his feelings from her. When she did learn his first name, it was a huge stepping stone for them as a couple and for him as a man, because he was fully letting go of his past, his misconceptions about Rae, and embracing his future. He truly let Rae in and he wasn't ever letting her go. *redemption accomplished*

Liked the first two books so much more than this one! Had a serious urge to kick both characters in the pants to get them moving!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Great Book that is Fantastiv! 12 February 2016
By TJOly - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
**I received a copy of this book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review**

I really liked this book and how it gave you insight on what occurs when a witness agrees to go under protection of the US Marshall's service.

Rae agrees to help her brother, True, retrieve his prototype from his former employers warehouse one night but little does she know that she will see a mob style murder occur while waiting for her brother. Their last name of Storm is well known in Chicago as being cop killers, her parents who had a anti-government commune where they grew up killed an undercover DEA agent who was raiding their farm.

Both siblings agree to enter Witness Protection in exchange for their testimony against a judge whom they witnessed killing one of the Serbian mobsters. After having their locations compromised again and again, Marshall Bronson starts to wonder if their could be a leak somewhere. But Bronson starts to have feelings for Rae that he doesn't want because he doesn't have a great track record because of his lying ex-fiance.

Can Rae stay safe after giving her testimony? Will Bronson and Rae give into their feelings? Once she is relocated to Vegas, Rae ends up making friends with her neighbors (Welcome to Trailer hood!) and when trouble happens to Lily, she tries hard not to get involved. (I loved Lily's broom wielding grandma!) But in the end her testimony comes back to bite her in the worst way, when she discovers she has a bounty on her head.

I haven't read the previous two books but after reading this one as a stand alone, it doesn't have to be read in order. However, now my curiosity is peaked and I'll have to read the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really liked this read 9 February 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
I really liked this read!! It had romance and suspense all woven together to make a great story!! Although I have not read the first two in this series, I was able to pick this one up and not be lost at all. I was not able to predict what was going to happen in this story and that is part of what I loved about it. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, J.L. Hammer went another way and threw me all off.

Raegan "Rae" has witnessed a horrific double murder and has been entered into the witness protection program. Rae knows that she will never see her brother again because of his involvement in the events that took place. We learn that Rae had a hard life growing up as well, so when she is entered into the program, she is scared to death. There are times when Rae has flashbacks that cause her to have even more hesitation about trusting the guys that are supposed to be protecting her. When Rae has some down time while the trial is going on, she gets to know Agent Bronson a little better.

Quinn Bronson is Marshall that is supposed to protect the "packages" that he is put in charge of. Between he and his partners, they all spend a lot of time with Rae and Bronson gets to know Rae a little bit at a time. Bronson knows that he should not be doing this and he tries to keep himself in check, but when sparks fly between he and Rae, he is not able to control himself. Bronson knows that he can not let himself get close to Rae. He tells himself this over and over. The only way that Bronson knows how to keep Rae from getting close to him is to be blunt with her and try to keep her away with his harsh words. This confuses Rae at times because she thinks they are making progress and then all the sudden Bronson is being gruff with her. I kept thinking to myself that this would be the one time he gave into her and I was always wrong. I kept on reading because I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with these two. Will Bronson give into his passion for Rae and risk his job or will they go their separate ways and not even look back? You have to read this one to find out. Such a great romantic suspenseful read. I loved that this story gave us insight into what the witness protection program was all about as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series! 9 February 2016
By Laura Collins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great book; this is the third book in the Vegas Vixens series by J.L. Hammer. This book can be read as a standalone, but once you read this one you will want to go back and read the others in this series. Reagan “Rae” Storm can’t catch a break, after witnessing a double murder she becomes a target of the mafia and is thrown in the Witness Protection Program in exchange for her testimony. The more time she spends with the handsome U.S. Marshal Quinn Bronson, who is one of the agents protecting her. Quinn is driven by honor and commitment to his job as a marshal and is determined to ignore his growing attraction from Rae. If you are looking for a great romance with some mystery, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this great series!
