Blurb: Sometimes the only way to do your job—and discover love—is to trust your instincts.
D’Marcus ‘Snap’ Jefferson is a DEA agent who has worked hard to keep drugs from hitting the streets of Houston. So when Kenneth Santos walks in, claiming to have information about an upcoming drug shipment, Snap must make the choice whether to trust the stranger or not.
Kenneth Santos is a recovering addict and ex-con trying to clean up his act. Some mysterious informant has chosen him to act as the go-between with Agent Jefferson. It’s a precarious line Ken must walk because his life could be in danger if the cartels discover he’s working with Snap and the DEA.
Neither man expects to fall in love while playing such a dangerous game. Yet Snap always trusts his gut and it’s telling him that loving Ken could be the best decision he’s ever made.
Review: D’Marcus “Snap” Jefferson works for the DEA in Houston. His main goals are to get the drugs off the streets and to get rid of Victor Delarosa, head of the Delarosa cartel.
Agent Amirez, Border Patrol, has shown up at the DEA and has brought something of interest for Snap. As Snap views the guy through the one-way glass, he sees something very familiar about him. Amirez explains to Snap that the guy wouldn’t give any information to the Border Patrol, and asked specifically to talk with Snap. Snap decides he needs to call in the Texas Rangers, one in particular, his friend Mac. When Mac enters the interrogation room, he can’t believe how much the guy resembles Tanner Wallace, his lover and Delarosa’s brother.
Kenneth Santos has no family, he’s an ex-con and has been clean of drugs for six months, but every day is a struggle for him to stay clean. Now, he’s just trying to get clean of one particular cartel. Ken explains to Snap that he used to transport small shipments of drugs, and now someone has tracked him down and wants him to start again. He has permission from a “mysterious source” to tell Snap when drug movements will be made. When Ken gives Snap and Mac the information on one drug delivery, and it holds true, Snap starts making plans to put Ken in a safe house.
Snap and Ken start to get close, and Snap really wants to build a relationship with Ken. Ken becomes a confidential informant for the DEA, and Snap worries about Ken being in danger. With so much danger, will they ever get to really know each other? Is there a connection between Tanner Wallace and Kenneth Santos? Just who is this mysterious person, now dealing directly with Snap? And just what is Victor Delarosa up to?
I am just totally hooked on T.A Chase’s crazy-exciting Delarosa series, and it ranks high on my list of favorites. There are still a lot of questions to be answered, which only keeps you wanting more. I highly suggest reading the first book, Borderline before Snap Decision, though, as it gives much more insight into Tanner, Mac, and the Delarosa connection.
