Political intrigue, an undercover investigation and a very mutual attraction
As the Kansas City Police Department's archenemy, reporter Gabriel Knight never expected to need its help. But the sexy journalist suspects the death of a politician's aide will shed light on the long-unsolved murder of his fiancée. He demands to team up with tough, beautiful detective Olivia Watson. Sharing a mutual distrust—and a disturbingly mutual attraction—Gabe and Olivia discover that someone's working hard to keep old secrets buried and stop their investigation dead. But as they come closer to the truth they edge closer to each other. Until now, neither has had room in their lives—or hearts—for a relationship. Yet all that could change…if Gabe can prevent them from becoming tomorrow's headline.
Amazing chemistry between the characters, thrilling mystery to be solved, and detective in need to get her trust to fellow teammates, as well as men in general, back in place.
Gabe and Olivia had a believable connection, attraction that grew fast, but was deep and true. The understanding and respect they had for each other, the smooth team work they did together, moving and thinking as a solid unit was a joy to read, and experience. They are hot together, they heat up the sheets, and hospital offices, conference rooms or a car... Yes, the heat level was steaming, but authentic and credible, as well as swoon worthy beautiful.
The mystery kept me guessing, and clued into my Kindle. The hunt for a killer in six year old cold case suddenly heats up, the danger is palpable, and lives are in peril. There are intense scenes of the hunt for the clues, as well as running for their lives.
The ending is satisfying and complete, yet some of the questions still need answers, and as part of a long running series, even though easily to be read as a stand alone novel, those questions are in my mind, and I can't wait for the next installment in the series, coming out in August.
Very well written murder mystery, with a beautifully flowing story that captivated me and engaged my mind, and made me connect with the characters
