The Price of Cash by Ashley Bartlett

Blown away once again by Bartlett…

Author Synopsis

Cash Braddock’s summer started bad and it’s getting worse. Her suppliers keep getting arrested. Her competition is poaching all her customers. Laurel isn’t who Cash thought she was. And her farm is under a microscope, which makes money laundering difficult.

There’s a new dealer on Cash’s turf. When kids start dying from the dealer’s pills, Detective Kallen turns to Cash for answers. Turns out her reputation for selling pills doesn’t make her an expert. It makes her a suspect. Cash preferred it when she knew which cops were bad and good.

Last time, her business and reputation were on the line. Now, she’s got to worry about staying out of jail. And stay alive.

Second in the Cash Braddock series.

My Review

Firstly before you read this review please check out my review of the first book in the series, Cash Braddock. Personally, I think you shouldn’t start this book without reading the first in the series or it won’t flow correctly.

Cash Braddock is back and her life is as crazy as ever. Her drug dealing business isn’t what it was, with a multitude of problems – one of which is that her ex girlfriend, Laurel, is still her police handler. Laurel and Cash still have such amazing chemistry its almost palpable but can Cash ever really forgive Laurel for her betrayal and even if she did, could Laurel really break the rules to be with Cash?

This series is like nothing else I have ever read in this genre and it just keeps getting better. It’s a solid storyline that keeps me guessing as to what will happen next. Cash and Laurels emotions are highly charged and you can feel the chemistry brewing between them. I was hooked and kept praying they would just launch themselves at each other.

The book is written solely from Cash’s POV and what a point of view she has. She’s sarcastic, funny but also harbours deep feelings and is incredibly sweet.

I’m so excited about this series that I keep checking Bold Strokes Books upcoming releases to see when I can get the next fix of Cash but no date as yet for the third book.
