The Cold Case Detectives series heats up with a sexy new hero in this story of revenge and desire.
A tough ex-SEAL turned private investigator, Lucas Curran vows that solving his sister's murder must come first. Even before his raging attraction to Rachel Delany, who might be a fresh lead in the four-year-old case. It's just that he can't trust the down-on-her-luck beauty. He's already been devastated once by a deceitful ex. Then there's Rachel's rap sheet…and her infuriating tendency to withhold the truth.
But when Rachel's life goes up in flames, they're forced to rely on each other. Because Rachel is more than just Lucas's ticket to outsmarting a killer and serving up justice—she's his second chance at a burning love he never thought possible.
I really liked this suspense filled story.
There's so much happening in the story, so many different angles. Everytime I thought I had it all figured out, and knew what was what, a plot twist, and I was guessing again. That kept me glued to the story.
The characters are edgy, they have secrets, and are skating on the line of good and bad. I really wasn't sure with Rachel, what her secrets were, and was she really that innocent at all. Luke is very oriented to find the truth behind his sister's murder, and not shy to use anything to find the answers and clues he needs.
I wasn't sure at first, if they, Luke and Rachel, have a connection, or if he was just using her to the greater good. But the feelings grow, and the connection between them comes clear.
Also, who is really behind everything that was happening, that was the other question in my mind, that wasn't' solved until the end. But the end is satisfying, and giving answers to my questions.
Great suspense, a murder mystery that keeps you guessing and wondering all the way to the end
