My Review 

This is a friend’s to lovers romance with an added helping of investigative suspense making it an intriguing read. Ebon Brody and Sophie Caplan were in school and university together. They are best friends despite both being rival investigative journalists but both are also attracted to the other and wary of letting that attraction spoil their friendship. However, everything is put to the test when they discover they are both hoping to uncover a scandalous human trafficking scheme involving top politicians. Can they put their rivalry aside and work together to reveal the perpetrators? As their attraction blossoms, will they find the truth and love?

This is a serious story but one that is also packed with laugh out loud incidents, especially those involving her matchmaking Gran and his brothers. There are edge of your seat moments and some very hot, steamy encounters, too. It is the third book in the series but it also works well as a standalone. I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

When these friends become lovers, they might just turn into bitter enemies

Ebon Brody and Sophie Caplan have been close friends – and closer rivals – for as long as they can remember. One night they become even more, and shake hands on a no-strings agreement. They’ve always been able to keep their hands off each other’s stories – surely, they can keep their hands on each other at the same time.

But when they both begin to circle the same scoop – a human trafficking scandal that could bring enormous accolades for either of their competing papers – they discover it’s harder to avoid those strings than they thought.

Sophie was secretly furious when Ebon didn’t attempt to poach her to his newspaper, the Phoenix, and she resolved to win at all costs. Now she has to choose between the man she’s always wanted and the career she loves more than anything. Ebon wants to prove himself to his older brothers and to the woman he’s always admired, even if it means snatching a story out from under her feet.
