Better with You by Lexxie Couper

There’s nothing hotter than a killer love story.

Charlie Baynard is an average Outback cop. Protecting the people in his small town and flying through the Outback skies in his police chopper suits him just fine. But there’s a side to him that no one knows about. Like the fact he used to be one of the Australian government’s best assets, and his name isn’t really Charlie.

A dangerous past conditioned Charlie to be afraid of nothing and no one. Except for the woman who knows exactly who he really is. His wife. And if the reports that she’s headed for Wallaby Ridge are true, he’s got two choices—arrest her or kill her. Before she kills him.

Dani De Vries never questioned orders and was paid to do things that put her on a lot of most-wanted lists. Then Charlie entered her life and things…shifted. Now Dani is on the run, hunted by dangerous people. But not as dangerous as the man she never meant to fall in love with—her husband.

If only she can find him in time. And convince him not to put a bullet between her eyes.

Warning: The hero and heroine in this romance are dangerous. And violent. And don’t pull any punches, in or out of bed. And they spend a lot of time in bed having a lot of sex. A lot of sex.

Charlie is an outback cop and a former spy for ASIO. After four years with no contact, his wife Dani turns up on his door step bringing danger with her. This couple is hot. One minute they are getting hot and heavy, and the next try to kill each other. Their lives are at risk and they don't trust each other.

As an Aussie, I loved the authenticity of the characters and setting of this book and this series. Aussie sayings and language are used throughout the story. There are no Americanisms anywhere, which is rare these days. That alone is a huge draw card for me, but that combined with steamy romance and action will have me reading more of Lexxie Couper's work in the future. Better with You pushed my buttons. It was great.

If you are after a quick, hot read with an Aussie flavor, you'll love Better with You.

I have read a couple in this series already, and knew that I was in for a treat! Ms. Couper has combined the wild and simple life of the outback with deep, dark and dirty assassinations in this one...

We meet some familiar friends and catch up a little on how their lives are progressing. However, the main feature is the cop, Charlie, this time around. Turns out that he really isn't just a cop, but that is the order of the day as new people come out of the woodwork to unravel this story of espionage and deception. There are some lovely twists in the relationships, and no one could deny (any longer) the chemistry between Dani and Charlie. The tension is maintained right to the end – really good read!

Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn't stopped since. She's not a deviant, but she does have a deviant's imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.

When she's not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie's life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she's insane, an indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.
