He's everything she didn't know she wanted. She's everything he thought he could never have.
The last thing I expect when I walk into The Hawkeye Club is to fall head over heels in lust. It's supposed to be a rescue mission. I have to get my baby sister off the pole, into some clothes, and out of the grasp of the pussy peddler who somehow manipulated her into stripping. But the moment I see Savage Hawke and verbally spar with him, my ability to remain rational flies out the window and my libido takes center stage. I've never wanted a relationship—my time is better spent focusing on taking down the scum running this city—but what I want and what I need are apparently two different things.
Danika Eriksson storms into my office in her high heels and on her high horse. Her holier-than-thou attitude and accusations should offend me, but instead, I can't get her out of my head or my heart. Her incomparable drive, take-no-prisoners attitude, and blatant honesty captivate me and hold me prisoner. I should steer clear, but my self-preservation instinct is apparently dead—which is exactly what our relationship will be once she knows everything. It's only a matter of time.
The truth doesn't always set you free. Sometimes, it just royally screws you.
The Hawke Family Reading Order:
A wonderful novella but just a little bit drawn out to me, but I loved the last four chapters and epilogue.
This is my first book by this author and I was not disappointed. I love books that offer a good dose of suspense along with romance and heat and this book had all of that!
Danika meets Savage when she goes to his club to give him a piece of her mind and tell him exactly what she thinks of him and his profession.
There is instant mutual attraction but, of course, they avoid it, at first.
Danika is working on a story about some unsavory characters and her informant keeps getting cold feet, pulling her further and further into dangerous territory.
I can’t say anything more without giving too much away. However, I will say that if you like spice and suspense in your books, you should enjoy this one.
I gave only four stars because I felt some of the secondary characters could have been developed more to provide more depth and to get you invested enough to find out more about them in their spin off stories.
Overall, very entertaining and intriguing story.
