ACE OF SPADES – A Sandra Owens Review


The third book to Owens’ Aces & Eights series is here! Nate has watched over his brothers for as long as he can remember. Now it’s time to confront their past and a secret that’s haunted them for years. By Nate’s side is his partner and the woman of his dreams, Taylor. As FBI agents, they both know how to kick ass and take names. But when Taylor’s own past comes after her, Nate has to decide if he’ll let his own demons haunt him or will he risk it all to save her.

I loved the easy going nature between Taylor and Nate. As partners there is the unspoken trust between the two of them. They know how the other works inside and out when it comes to the job but have no idea how the other truly feels for their partner. Wanting more than a partner in her job, Taylor decides to put all her cards on the table and ask Nate for a chance. There’s a chance they could be great and Taylor accepts that Nate may not be able to give her everything. But as the two grow closer, Nate begins to realize how he truly feels for her.

Heart stopping action and a serial killer case on their hands (that is seriously soooo interesting throughout the whole book, I could easily see it being a movie!), this action romance is definitely killer. I highly recommend you read books 1 & 2 first so as you’re not lost at the Gentry brother’s past, but it can be read as a standalone if you’re your own detective and are good at figuring out puzzles. Oh and the secret the Gentry brothers have had haunting them? Well….just stick around for this shocking ending!

Two FBI agents struggle with desire in the shadow of a killer, in the third installment of Aces & Eights.

Nate Gentry has been a rock for his two younger brothers since the day their mom walked out and left them with their abusive father. Now that they’ve grown up, he’s watched Alex and Court fall in love and settle down. But Nate isn’t made for romance. He keeps his relationships casual. And getting casual with his partner is a fantasy he can’t shake…

Taylor Collins has feelings for Nate, too—and though they run hot, her best friend on the team is strictly off limits. Until a spark in his eyes says, Go for it. But reaching out could prove to be a bad move now that they’re working closer together than ever, and on the most dangerous case of their careers.

An investigation into a brutal series of murders is stirring up bad memories for Taylor, and neither she nor Nate can imagine how close to home it’s going to hit. When it does, Nate will risk everything—including his heart—to keep Taylor safe.
