 When photojournalist, Liliana Richardson, agrees to go on assignment in Arizona, she has no idea it could cost her everything. But one wrong picture at the right moment puts her on a lethal drug cartel’s hit list. Kidnapped and held poisoner in a border town, she is certain her life is over, until the bad boy from her past shows up. Now she’s on the run with the only man who ever made her want more. Problem is: She knows she can trust him with her life, but not her heart.

Security specialist and former Marine, Jesse James Calhoun, follows a strict code. Work hard, play hard, and never get too involved. When he gets information that the wild girl from his past needs help and fast, he’s ready, willing, and able to neutralize the threat. But the spoiled girl he knew is all grown up and has a secret that someone is willing to kill for. Can he keep them alive long enough to uncover her secret? Or will she leave before he can stop a killer, taking his heart with her.

Lily’s Outlaw by Kori David is the second book in the Once a Marine Always a Marine series. I will admit this is the first time I have read this series and I was just a tad not a lot but a tad lost at first.  I think reading the series in order is better bet. However once I figured out what was going on this book is really good. I loved the strong character of Lily.  She was raised with money; she was a budding juvenile delinquent as a kid.  She always had her partner in crime Jesse at her side.  That is till they grew up. Jesse went into the marines and Lily had to figure out life without her side kick.
Lily deals with a lot in this book. The twist at the end I did not see coming at all.  Made me know that Lily really is strong because of Jesse though. It was his goodness and little devious too that made Lily the woman she is today.
I like that Lily herself does not just give in. Jesse may have rescued her but she still is pretty kick butt herself. She won’t just roll over and give Jesse what he wants. Jesse has to work for it. But Jesse does not mind a little hard work. Especially if it will get him the woman he has always loved.
When you want action, adventure, and romance combined this is a great little book to pick up.
