Someone is feeding the Feds information on alleged illegal activities at the Franklin Everly law firm, and Carino Montgomery is targeted as a prime suspect. There’s enough evidence to put her in the hot seat when hired gun, Ramon Terrones, arrives to uncover the mole.
But from the moment they meet, Ramon relentlessly pursues Carino, triggering a whirlwind romance packed with fierce emotions … and secrets that won’t remain buried. Both Ramon and Carino have worked hard to put their pasts behind them, but the truth could bring their whole lives crumbling down.
Will their unlikely relationship be worth sacrificing everything they’ve worked for? Or will their secrets prove to be bigger than their love?
Dynamic, powerful, and complex characters, mixed in a web of lies and secrets, and illegal activities.
The plot and setting for the story is original, and entangled. No one is what they seem to be, and who they claim to be, no one is to be trusted. But against all the odds, Carino and Ramon find a connection with each other, that is real, and sensual. The romance and heat between them is actual, and the attraction palpable, but the story is 'clean'.
With all the lies coming down at once, after years of undercover work, the tension rises. There's a lot of inner thoughts, and reflection, and a bit of repetition in them, that takes away from the possible intensity of the situation, and makes the story move slower than necessary.
Still with all the plot twists and turns, and even surprises, the tale keep its interest and intrigue, with an ending that is unusual. A bold choice for a hero from the author, with a heroine who knows what she wants, and is not afraid to make the decisions.
