She’s the one woman he knows he shouldn’t touch. He’s the hero she never knew she needed. The truth will either save them both or burn them to the ground.
Jase - Dirty cop. That’s what everyone thinks. Only I know it’s a lie. They took my gun, my badge, my soul. I have one last shot to earn it all back. My job? Go deep undercover to bring down a ruthless drug lord. It should have been easy. Until I met his niece, Devin. I crave her just like the drug her uncle’s pushing. Pure and simple. She brings out every protective instinct I have. All the wicked ones too. Except acting on them could blow this investigation and ruin my chance to clear my name. It might also get us both killed.
Devin - When Jase walked into my bar, he turned everything upside down. He made me feel things I know I can’t want. I have to walk away. Because, I know he’s a liar just like all the others. He’ll tell me loves me then disappear. Plus, I know he’s hiding something. But, his smoldering touch and perfect kisses are almost enough to drive my doubts away. Almost.

Great story for Jase and Devin.
Such a great story
I received this for a honest review. WOW!!! I just love Jayne Blue’s books. One of the series I loved of hers was the Great Wolves MC series. We got to meet Jace through that series since he was the twine brother of Colt who was Prez of the Great Wolves MC. I always found these two brothers very interesting since they were working toward the same goal just on different sides of the law. Don’t worry this book is a standalone and you will have no issue keeping up.
Jace who was handsome and very sexy was also one when you looked at him you knew he meant business. He was a cop but had his badge and gun taking away from him. Now people looked at him as a dirty cop. Being a cop meant the world to him. It was a part of him, it was imbedded in his soul and to have that taken away was like taking a piece of his heart. He is giving the chance to go deep undercover to stop a drug lord and get his job back. He wants more than anything to be a cop again.
Jace is a type of person that you cannot help but fall in love with. He truly has a good heart. He does not see things black and white but knows there some in-between. I would like to think if given a chance to go back and change things that he would stand by the decision he had made.
When Jace first met Devin Marsh I almost died laughing. Devin Marsh was this strong woman. She was everything you would want to find in a female character. She was a hard but yet fair boss. It was unfortunate she had a slim ball of a uncle. He was her only family. The only other one was her sister and she was missing. Devin has learned that through life you can only rely on one person and that is yourself. Seems like everyone that has been in her life that was supposed to love her had failed her. Which I found pretty sad. She truly has trust issues and a wall built up but you can’t really blame her.
Jace will have to obtain a job for his undercover job at the club that Devin owns. There will be feeling that arise between these two. Jace will have to have some hard decision. He will have to determine if Devin is on the up and up or if she is part of the drug trafficking that is going on in her club.
You will met some interesting characters in this book. You will see Jace scared of losing the one person he has fallen in love with over the lies he has to tell. You will see Devin suffer through more heartache then one person should have to face. Lives will be in danger, important decision will have to be made, and lives will be changed forever.
So enjoyed this book and one well worth reading.
