An enjoyable, dynamic, and intense tale of riveting suspense and secret, ardent, sweep-you-off-your-feet-kind of romance.
The friction, chemistry, connection, attraction - whatever you want to call the sizzling - between Detective Emmanuel Iglesias and Pippa Colton is so well done; the secrecy, the escalation of emotions, the development of the suspense and how it mirrored into their relationship, I treasured every moment as I devoured the book.
I have not read the other books in the Colton 911 series yet that didn't hinder the pleasure of my reading experience. The suspense is intriguing, bringing constant accelerating tension and potentially deadly moments to the pages. I liked how it was nearly the backdrop of the platform for Pippa and Emmanuel's destinies to entwine, as in the middle of all the danger and mayhem their relationship was still the main focus. Thus the fact that the conclusion to the attacks towards Pippa was - what felt like - a bit an easy solution wasn't a big deal to me.
A potent, compelling tale of love and family, law and order, justice and objectivity, that I read at one sitting cause I couldn't put it down.
