Review:  Take a little paranormal activity and mix it with some military action and you have the recipe for the Toxic Tango Troop series.

In Minx Juliette, the second book in the series, author Fanny Armstrong introduces Julie and Lope in the middle of the Mexican jungle. Embroiled in a search for missing family members, the two join forces. there’s plenty of chemistry to go around and it’s clear that Julie is no wimpy heroine.

Although I would have liked to have seen more development placed on building an actual relationship between the two main characters, the author packs a lot of action within the pages. If I had to guess, I would say that the first book in the series probably focused on Julie’s twin sister and Tango because their relationship is pretty well developed in this installment.

It’s a quick read with plenty of hot scenes packed in between the fighting action. If anything, I would have liked more detail given to the plot. The foundation is strong, but the potential exists for it to be even better.
