Title: Texas Takedown
Author: Heather Woodhaven
Rating: 3 stars
Presenting her research findings at an oceanology conference should be marine biologist Isabelle Barrows's big break—until she spots two men chasing her. With shadowy assailants on her tail, impressing potential investors becomes the least of her concerns. Especially when the men chase her straight into the arms of her high school crush. Unbeknownst to Isabelle, Matt McGuire still regrets the way they parted. Determined not to repeat past mistakes, Matt vows to keep her safe and make things right. But what good is a second chance when Isabelle's attackers will stop at nothing to destroy everything she holds dear—her life, her promising career and any possibility of a happily-ever-after?

This wasn't bad. The characters had quirks, which they normally don't in LIS, like Isabelle's tendency to sleepwalk and Matt's phobia of heights. I like how both played into the story. The twist at the end was so blatantly obvious to me that it felt like a letdown. Other than the quirks the characters weren't memorable, and I didn't like the fact that at the end the story only progressed because of miscommunication and Isabelle deciding that Matt only liked her as a friend.
