Two headstrong, single-minded agents, one incredibly fiery passion, can they stay alive long enough to see where it leads?

Special Agent Taber Kysenzki is the DEA’s bad boy, he has no qualms of straddling the line of right and wrong, doing whatever necessary to get the job done. But when he botches up an undercover operation, he’s faced with a woman unlike any he’s met before. She saves his life but doesn’t deign to give him the time of day. He’d heard rumours of an agent with his reputation in the ATF but hadn’t met her until today.

Special Agent Serefina LeBenoit is the ATF’s equivalent to Kysenzki. She knows all about him, how he goes through women and she doesn’t have any desire to be another notch on his belt. She has a rule of not sleeping with certain men, he fit that criteria. All that changes one night a few months after their first volatile meeting, when he tracks her down in a bar in New Mexico.

Circumstances bring them together again when a killer from her past resurfaces. Together they work, skirting the line of the law, to get the murderer off the street. Sparks fly hot between them as they close in on the target. When the bullets stop flying and the smoke clears, will they ignore the chance of a lifetime?

It nagged at him she could take no notice of him so easily after the passion intense night they’d shared. He wasn't used to places being reversed. Him the cool one, the woman craving more attention. Had he not been watching so intently he would have missed the flash of pain in her otherwise serene expression.

Reclining back on his elbows he stared at her face. She wasn’t what the world would consider gorgeous but to him, she surpassed it.

“What’s wrong?” he asked in a controlled tone.

“Not a thing,” she commented without sparing him a glance.

“You’re in pain, angel. I can see it. Tell me from what.” He frowned as something occurred to him. “Did I hurt you last night?”

She froze and met his gaze. In hers he could read shock at his question. “No, you did not hurt me.”

A wave of relief swarmed him. “Then what is causing you pain?”

Cool composure filled her face and she lifted one shoulder. “My business, Taber Kysenzki, is my own.”

He shook his head. “I’m making it mine.”

Serefina yawned and zipped her bags shut. “Make it yours with someone else. I’m tending to mine.”

“After what we shared—”

“We shared a night of fucking,” she interrupted sharply. “That’s all.”

He could hear it in her voice; she didn’t believe the crap she spouted. Neither did he. True, last night was rough and intense, no gentle words of love were shared, but there had been something happen between them on a deeper level. And it scared her.

Not just her.

Tongue skimming his teeth he sat straight up and sought her gaze. “Why do you think you hate me, Serefina?”

Her eyes narrowed a minuscule amount. “I never said I hated you. And even if I had, why do you say ‘think’ when it comes to me hating you?”

“You wouldn’t have given me the time of day, no matter what the attraction if you hated—truly hated—me.”

For a split second he saw past her guise. Saw the vulnerable woman beneath. Then in a flash it was gone.

“Thank you for today’s pysch lesson. Nice to know I can only sleep with someone I don’t hate.”

“You’re not making this easy,” he said.

She hefted her bags and walked to the door. “I’m not interested in a relationship. I was looking for a night of mindless sex.”

Reviews of  A Man Like No Other

 

Blackraven at Blackraven Reviews gives 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read and says: “A Man Like No Other by Aliyah Buke is fast-paced, action-packed and full of exquisite passion.


Ms. Burke has created three-dimensional characters and a vivid setting that will keep you panting as this edgy, suspensful romance unfolds. It’s obvious that Ms. Burke has done her homework in regards to the cop lingo and procedures that are used in the book.
 

A Man Like No Other is a well-written story, where the action is non-stop, the sex is explosive, the danger is energizing, and the love is everlasting. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Code of Honour Series.”

 
Rose at TwoLips Reviews gives 5 Lips and says: “A Man Like No Other by Aliyah Burke is a guns blazing interracial romance between two government agents used to being in charge. Taber and Serefina are both driven to be the best at what they do – taking down the bad guys any way they can. They have similar reasons for having joined law enforcement, a personal tragedy tied to the agency they chose. Ms. Burke did a great job of developing the characters and balancing their romance with all the action taking place around them.”
 
Susan Plummer at All Romance Ebooks Newsletter gives Top Pick and says in part "A Man Like No Other by Aliyah Burke is one of those stories that even after you've completed reading you wished there was more. The first line of the story is like a light bulb coming on illuminating a room and what follows is enough to keep you riveted to this "room," or the book all the way to the beautiful ending."
 
Tigger9 at Night Owl Reviews gives 4.75 Stars and Top Pick and says: “A Man Like No Other is a great read with plenty of action and lots of loving. I really enjoyed this story and did not stop once I started reading it. ”
 
Miranda at Joyfully Reviewed says: “A Man Like No Other is a fast edgy romance. Taber and Serefina have exceptional chemistry. They spark when together whether they are fighting or making up. I rather enjoyed A Man Like No Other, it featured a great romance as well as plenty of suspenseful action. A Man Like No Other starts off with a bang and keeps you rapt throughout.”
