A BOOK BAR REVIEW: Reunited by the Badge

Series: To Serve and Seduce Publisher: Harlequin Romantic Suspense Publication Date: October 1, 2019 Genre: Romantic Suspense Heat Level: Sensual AMAZON

A megacorporation starts killing patients…

And two exes must reunite to save lives!

When he discovers his patients’ lives are threatened, Dr. Paul Reilly can turn to only one person: Simone Black. She will have his back, even if they don’t agree on much else. But as the former lovers work together to track down the evildoers who are tampering with medications, they rediscover unexpected feelings for one another…even as an enemy wants to silence them permanently.


Reunited by the Badge is the 3rd installment in the To Serve and Seduce series.  When Dr. Paul Reilly discovers a major pharmaceutical company is illegally passing on drugs that has been rejected by the FDA.  It’s when his patients start dying that springs him into action.  Careful not to bring too many people into this theory, due to safety and trust, he enlists his ex, Simone.  He trusts her to keep his confidence and to know which steps to take to expose this company.

Paul and Simone take us through it with their back and forth. The things I enjoyed most in this one was the family characters and their interaction with each other and the subject matter the chose to tackle in this title. You get just the amount of romance, suspense, and twists to keep you turning the pages.

It didn’t go unnoticed that the matriarch and patriarch of the Black family drops a smoke bomb that left us wondering and expecting another book. I am looking forward to more as well as catching up with Oliver and his new love interest.
