All the Way

Kimberley White, Author . Dafina $6.99 (279p) ISBN 978-0-7582-2209-1

This action-packed contemporary romance suffers from a heroine imperiled by bad judgment and an otherwise terrific hero who can't seem to figure out the happily-ever-after that's staring him in the face. A shoot-out at the hotel where police have stashed murder witness Payton Vaughn leaves her protectors dead. She escapes into the night, and in desperation carjacks journalist Adriano Norwood. Payton tries to shield Adriano, but soon admits to managing a nightclub for notorious drug dealer Sherman Grazicky until she saw a hit he ordered. As Adriano's partner works to translate evidence Payton didn't even know she had, Grazicky's jealous wife plots Payton's death. White (Forever After ) throws in some hot scenes, but strong chemistry can't mitigate Payton's willingness to advance her career by working for a mobster or Adriano's inability to see beyond the next five minutes. (Dec.)
