About COLD BLOODED
Searching for the truth…
Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body face-down in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine that her friend overdosed then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.
Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her meddling could reveal why the FBI is interested in her friend’s last days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and might have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the black market.
…just turned deadly.
Pip is thrown off her game by grief and her unexpected attraction to the handsome federal agent. Hunt battles the same unwelcome pull, determined to resist the heat that threatens to consume them both. But the more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent, and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.

Cold Blooded is part of the Cold Justice series, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone without any issue - I know this because I haven't read all of the series.
This story is full of mystery, danger, suspense and just the right amount of romance to make it a perfect read. You'll find yourself questioning everything, feeling everything and most of all, you'll want the good guys to not only win - but to find something together.
When Pip decides to uproot her life after an argument with her best friend, she never expects the wild ride it will lead her on, but discovering her friend's dead body is just the start. I really loved the loyalty Pip immediately has to her friend, the depth of her belief that her friend didn't and wouldn't OD and her desire to prove it that countered with that tiny part questioning what if? It was clear that Pip didn't know what to believe and she was struggling to line up the facts of the case with the person she knew and loved.
Agent Hunt Kincaid is on the case for someone threatening the country, someone who would use Antrhax against innocents. So when he finds himself tangled up in a mystery involving the death of one person who is on his list of people to watch - he's not sure what to think. He does know he doesn't want her journalist friend involved at all and he'll do whatever it takes to get her off the case as it were.
But there's a connection between Hunt and Pip, a chemistry that's hard to deny and they both have reasons for wanting to solve this case - for wanting the answers they seek. But they'll have to learn to trust each other if they are going to be working together in any sort. I really loved the way they grew together, and slowly became closer - they both had their reasons for distrust and a past that colored their views, but it was important to see how they moved past that. I wavered between wanting to discover the secrets of the case and rooting for these two to finally admit to their feelings - to own up to how good they would be together.
Cold Blooded will suck you in with the suspense angle from page one, filling you with questions and theories and a curiosity to know everything. On top of that you'll find yourself feeling all the emotions involved, Pip's sadness at the loss of her friend, her confusion at trying to piece together the friend she knew and what others are claiming happened and so much more. I was hooked on the suspense angle and couldn't put the book down, because of my absolute NEED to know how it all ended. Toni Anderson did an amazing job weaving all the puzzle pieces together in this story.
