Almost Too Far (Almost Bad Boys #3) by A. O. Peart – Empress DJ

Title: Almost Too Far (Almost Bad Boys #3)

 Author: A. O. Peart

 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

 A martini glass of sizzling romance, a jigger of suspense and crime, perfectly shaken with a twist of wacky humor.


Where would you draw the line between love and trust?

When Colin’s feisty great grandma Helga mysteriously disappears, Natalie and the gun-toting Svetlana rush to the rescue. With the help of Russian mafia goons and Natalie’s girlfriends, they get more than they bargained for.  Natalie invites trouble into her life all over again. She could find herself questioned by the police, or worse, her relationship with Colin could become rickety once more.

And so the race begins: with grandma Helga on the loose, Colin turns to the police for help, and Natalie is a stiletto heel tip outside of the law. But being in the wrong has never felt so vindicated.

The books in the Almost Bad Boys series should be read in order. They are not stand-alone books:
Almost Matched (book 1)
Almost Broken Up (book 2)
Almost Too Far (book 3)

Disclaimer 
Warning: due to sexual situations, nasty language, and a high dose of sarcasm this book may not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old.  Not intended for prudes who get easily affronted.

4 ½ Panting Stars

My Review:



Ms Peart has done it again!  This is the 3rd installment of the Almost Bad Boys series and the fun and mayhem continues unabated.  Ms. Peart is adept at writing steamy yet sweet love scenes for Natalie and Colin – I find myself nearly panting as I read them.  In addition, the fun and madcap adventures continue for Natalie and her assortment of friends, which this time include a bunch of elderly ladies and Colin’s feisty grandmothers.  I chuckled and smiled many times while reading, my only complaint being that I wanted more, more, more!  Hurry up with #4.
