Trust is a dangerous game…
When her Uncle Jack is arrested on drug charges, Sammie Murphy hops the first plane to Key West. Being rescued isn’t on her uncle’s to-do list, though. When he admits guilt and instructs her to go home, Sammie knows with 100% certainty something is seriously wrong.
Veteran DEA agent Enrique Santos knows when a bust is solid. So why is he allowing Jack Murphy’s niece to mess with his head? He’s been set-up and nearly killed by a woman like her before, and he’s not about to make that mistake again.
But then things at Murphy’s bar take a turn for the dangerous, leaving Sammie entangled in Enrique’s dark past. Forced to second-guess his convictions, Enrique has no choice but to kidnap the one woman who could destroy everything…including his heart.

Okay, so I finished this book is less than 24 hours, so I'd say that I liked this story. I'm honestly not that big in the romance department, but Bad to the Bone was so much more than that.
Wendy Byrne did an amazing job to keep the book interesting, with both love and mystery in each page.
This book had some dangerous elements to it and at the end took a little bit to understand why all that happened did. To me the way that went down and the using of Uncle Jack and Sammie was all sorts of wrong. So many people got hurt for ones blind desire for revenge and to get what he wanted.
Plenty of intrigue to keep your attention until the last word.
