★★★★★ "A first rate romantic suspense debut that combines pulse pounding action with...pulse pounding romance!" - Manda Collins, author of the Studies in Scandal series.
"Full of secrets, deadly intrigue and steamy romance. A MUST read." - Elisabeth Naughton, New York Times Bestselling Author
Great action thriller
Lies within lies, half truths and omissions. This story has it all. It is a fast paced mystery thriller where both main characters are not exactly what they seem. Erica and Lee are hiding some of their backgrounds in order to uncover and expose corruption and theft. Erica is also trying to recover her personal and professional reputation.
The layers of intrigue are peeled back as each, seemingly disconnected, incident occurs. The story comes full circle from the prologue with a satisfying conclusion. I found myself trying to connect the dots as I read, but there were events that were unveiled that made me rethink frequently. Great action sequences.
Brilliant read, could not put it down. Highly recommended.
I enjoyed this from start to finish. Interesting plot, good character development and the author really seemed to know about the topic at hand.
