An explosive tale of intense investigation and sizzling romance between two conflicted FBI agents who pretend to be married for the sake of the investigation.
Jace Cantrell and Laura Smith and their conflicted relationship were mentioned in the previous book of the series, and finally, we found out what was aching between them. While Jace and Laura seem like the opposites in their approach to their careers and in their background, they have more in common than they expected. They both are dedicated, hard-working, smart, and capable in their jobs, and as they get to know each other, they have that in tune and harmonious soulmate type vibe that is so attractive in a couple.
I loved the play between them, the attraction that was obvious, I kinda wish there would have been more flirt between them before the building-up-attraction turned into a scorching fire.
The investigation of the mounting crimes in the small town is not easy. The suspicion and distrust and uncertainty is palpable, there's a strain in the air in the small community, as the blasts keep detonating.
I truly enjoyed the story, the interaction of different characters, and the escalation of the situation, the developing of the flirty romance was engaging and enticing, so much so that I ended up inhaling the tale at once. A marvelous ending for the multi-author mini-series!
