Review: Caught in the Current (Cape Cod Shores Book 2) by Charlee James

Retired Marine Jason Hall is a force to be reckoned with. When his nephew Luke is kidnapped by his fresh-out-of-jail father, he knows there’s one woman he can count on to help in the search. The last time he saw private investigator Alexandra Macintyre, they were steaming up the windows of her black SUV. Forgetting the scorch of her lips against his hasn’t been easy, but Jay knows the crippling pain of betrayal far too well.

Alexandra Macintyre is no stranger to tragedy. Haunted by her past, she seeks redemption by helping families find their loved ones, hoping their outcome is different from her family’s misfortune. Alex and Jay make a formidable team as they band together to rescue Luke, but the road trip south tests their emotional stamina. Alex is used to being alone, but Jay gives her a taste of the love and belonging she’s never dared to hope for.

Will Alex be able to make peace with her tragic past for a future with Jay?

My Review: 
I couldn’t put this book down.

Retired Marine, Jason Hall, just found out his nephew, Luke, has been kidnapped by his unstable father who was recently released from prison.  Jay needs to find Luke as quickly as possible before he ends up in danger.  Alexandra “Alex” Macintyre, Jay’s friend who is a private investigator, immediately jumps into action to help find Luke.   

Because of a tragedy that happened to Alex when she was younger, she has dedicated her life to helping reunite people with missing loved ones.  When Luke goes missing, Alex doesn’t hesitate for a minute to help. Finding Luke is the number one priority.  But, during the road trip along the eastern US coast, Jay and Alex give into the attraction that has been building between them for a while.

This book moved along at a fast pace and kept my attention throughout the entire thing.  The author did a great job with the characters and their backgrounds.  I also enjoyed learning about Alex and what happened to her when she was a kid.  Although this story wraps up at the end of the book, there is a sneak peek into the next book, a connected story that I can’t wait to read.
