"Crisp writing, richly drawn characters, strong plotting and fiery interludes show off Jean Brashear's top-notch romantic voice." ~RTBookclub review
From New York Times and USAToday bestselling author Jean Brashear:
Clarice Sutton, daughter of privilege, was raised to lead society, but that life feels empty, and she's taken a job her parents abhor: police department psychologist. Santino "Saint" Valdez—hard-nosed detective who is anything but saintly—is under investigation by Internal Affairs for killing a predator who richly deserved it. Now he's supposed to spill his guts to Miss Prim and Prissy? No way—not ever.
Yet the powerful attraction both feel from their first meeting complicates both their lives, and time spent together only makes their improbable bond grow. Saint's future depends on Clarice's professional opinion, and her feelings toward him are anything but professional. When Clarice learns that her whole life is a lie, the only person she trusts to understand how lost she feels is the very man she must avoid in order to save him.
I'm so very glad Jean Brashear is an author! This is one more terrific book in the Texas Heroes Series, and Lone Star Lovers Book Set. When I read this book, I'm immediately drawn into the story. Great character development and story line. There's a mix of suspense and romance. Clarice and Saint are strong characters who are on an emotional roller coaster. I can't give anything away on events in the story, just suffice it to say, I highly recommend this book! I've read many, many books by this author, and somehow each one seems to be awesome. But this is one of my new favorites! Now, go grab your copy of this book!
I received an ARC and have chosen to provide my honest review.
Jean is a fantastic author. Her books hook me right from the beginning. I loved watching the relationship develop with Clarice and Saint! I laughed ace teared up with these characters. I was even surprised at the end! Great book highly recommend it.
