Friction by Melanie Shawn
Raiza Diaz likes control in all aspects of her life from the office to the bedroom. She takes charge of her relationships, both professional and personal. Her unparalleled combination of beauty and sex appeal renders most men speechless.
Mateo Kostas isn’t most men. He has the commanding presence of a Greek god with devastatingly good looks and a 6’4” chiseled frame. He doesn’t take orders, he gives them. He isn’t easily controlled and definitely isn’t intimidated by women, even when they’re as beautiful as Raiza.
When a high-pressure stakeout turns into a battle of wills the heat generated leads to a fire that neither of them can control.
Number 2 novella with the Red Hot Private Eye folks is just as H.O.T. as the first one.
The dialog and electricity is intense between Raiza and Mateo, but at the same time the interaction is rather sweet.
Even though the novella mostly concentrates into the developing relationship between Raiza and Mateo, there is also potent action, cartel bosses, and a dead body. And few moments that made me actually laugh out loud.
I've heard rumors that there is #3 coming out of this series this fall, I sure hope it is true, because I truly enjoyed these two novellas.
