"Moving Target"

Synopsis From B&

Ani King left her entire life behind when the Russian mafia brutally murdered her family. The Witness Security Program has kept her safe for two years, but with one simple phone call her cover is destroyed—and there is only one man left who can save her.

Protecting the brave, beautiful Ani became more than just a job a long time ago for Deputy Marshal Daniel Parker. And now, just days before the trial where she’s slated to give a damning testimony, the criminals who want her dead are on her trail. To keep Ani safe, Daniel has to keep her close—and her enemies closer. Because soon there’s nowhere for Ani to hide…but in his arms.
Though I love romance novels in general, I've never really been one for contemporary or romantic suspense novels...Until I picked up Chosen Prey, the book that preceded Moving Target. Now, I still don't usually pick up novels with those themes, but Cheyenne McCray is one that I definitely will in the future! Her books have everything: The perfect amount of sex, love, humor, and action go into every one of her books, including Moving Target.
I thought the story was very intense and interesting. The main character, Ani, is being stalked by the Russian mob after they tried, and failed, to kill all of her family two years ago. Ani escaped with her life, barely, but she had to go into the Witness Protection Program immediately after and she's been in it every since, waiting until she could testify against her family's murder. But even in the program, she's soon finding out that she's not one hundred percent safe...from the mob, or from falling on love with the sexy detective, Daniel, who has been the head guy over her case for the past couple of years.
Just when you think that they've managed to escape safely, the story takes another twist and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of another chase, waiting to see what will happen, hoping that neither Daniel nor Ani will be harmed. McCray tells a gripping story that is countered by it's very steamy love scenes.
4.5/5 STARS! Though I'm use to reading historicals and paranormals, McCray's Moving Target changed my opinion a bit, showing me that, with the right story line and writing, romantic suspense/contemporary romances can be just as good! A definite must read for anyone, McCray fans or new comers, and make sure to check out her other book, Chosen Prey,which was the first book of hers that I read and after reading it, she became a auto-buy for me.
