Unsettled Scores by Kel O’ Connor is book 2 in the DAG Team Series. Amy Stuart has been estranged from her family for three years since the death of her sister Audrey, something that she blames herself for. After her sister’s abduction and death, Amy sets her sights on the drug lord responsible and swears to get revenge on him. When she is hired by lawyer Hugh Bainbridge IV to investigate who is smuggling drugs into his mother’s charity Amy is brought face-to-face with her arch nemesis. Amy now has the chance to fulfill the revenge she has been carefully planning for the past three years.
What Amy never expected was to fall for Hugh, a good-looking lawyer who dresses in sweatpants and is like nobody that she has ever met before. Hugh also finds himself falling for the feisty, strong-willed, and intelligent Amy. As Amy closes in on the drug lord who killed her sister, she finds herself forced to choose between love for Hugh, and revenge for her sister Audrey’s death. Which will she choose?
Unsettled Scores is a real page turner. It is very well written, and the characters are ones you find yourself drawn to. I found myself intrigued by Amy and I admired her strength, resilience, and courage in the face of danger. Although Amy was strong, she also had moments of weakness which made her more likable because the reader could see that Amy was human and that not everyone can be strong all the time. This book is a must read.
