What a great story this turned out to be – packed with cheating, double dealing, suspense, humour, vengeance and a steamy romance in a very enjoyable, fast paced story!
Cass found her boyfriend cheating on her so is determined to find someone different to sleep with. She wants a ‘bad boy’ to counteract the vanilla, good girl image her ex portrayed her as being. However, she chooses the bar where DEA agent Luke Calder has gone after discovering he’s the target of a drug lord. He wasn’t looking for a damsel in distress but, like a knight, he comes to her rescue, ensuring that, despite her drunken state, she gets to sleep off the alcohol without doing anything she might regret in the morning….
Mind you, when she wakes up in his bed the next day then goes to search for him the innuendos, misunderstandings and dialogue are hilarious! Then she runs off to spy on one of the students from the school where she’s the counsellor – unwittingly interfering in surveillance being carried out by Luke and his team. From there, things just keep on getting more complicated, suspense filled and totally engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into this story. The character development is great, the plot has plenty of twists and turns and the resolution brings it all to a well deserved conclusion but only after high drama and action packed encounters!
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys suspense filled thrillers which are also packed romantic comedy. I’ll certainly be looking out for more by this author in future!
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
With a deadly target on his back, DEA agent Luke Calder’s plan is to drink away his impending demise. Except instead of getting blessedly drunk, in walks a woman with a much deeper story than she’s leading on. And he definitely wants to know more. Especially when he learns she might have intel he needs. He’s not cool with lying to her, but desperate times call for desperate measures. And what starts out as simple surveillance turns into so much more.
Cassandra Stone is having a bad night. Her boyfriend’s been cheating because she’s not “adventurous enough” in bed. So, she does the next logical thing—she goes in search of a dark, dangerous one-night stand. Instead, she finds smoldering eyes, deep dimples, and the killer smile of a guy who won’t leave her alone. Damn him. He says and does all the right things, making Cass believe that good men still exist. Until she learns why he took an interest in her in the first place.
