Genre: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2016
After a shoulder injury ends her respectable career as a police officer, Mak also known as Maddison Abigail Kinloch turns to the seedy world of private investigations by default. Now her job consists of cheating douchebags and baby daddies dodging child support. Things can’t get much worse.
Moon controls Arizona’s largest crime syndicate. His bronze skin and blue eyes leave a girl breathless even when that girl knows he’s bad news. Moon doesn’t give a flying fig what Mac thinks; he wants her—ex-cop, bad attitude, and all.
How does she resist the dark side when her body craves Moon’s searing touch? Things only get hotter in Phoenix when Mak finds herself in a deadly situation and must turn to Moon for help.
He’ll help but there’s a price. Heat turns to sizzle and hearts combust when Mak and Moon find themselves wanting more than a few hot nights beneath cool sheets.
This book definitely lives up to its name earning it 5 sizzling stars. Holly S. Roberts did a fantastic job of writing all characters in this book. I will admit that I had some moments where I really felt that things couldn’t possibly work between Mak and Moon, but I was happy when they came together. My only complaint was that I felt that Mak’s position at the end didn’t really make much sense to me, but that was only a very minor complaint in an overall well-written book.
Mak was forced to give up her dream job as a police officer due to a shoulder injury, and the only way to make ends meet was to become a private investigator. This leaves her taking jobs she’s not thrilled with, and being looked down on by the officers she used to work with. When Moon enters her life, he is the last man she wants to get involved with. Not only is he a criminal, but he’s the local crime boss. I loved Mak’s character. She was feisty and funny. I really enjoyed her interactions with the other characters in the book.
What’s not to love about Moon? Okay, there are a few things, which is only to be expected since he’s a crime boss. He also had a few moments where his actions were much more stalker than suitor, but I can’t lie, he was panty-melting hot even then. Moon is complex, and that only adds to his appeal, while still keeping the reader wondering if Mak should run far and fast. He makes no excuses about who he is and doesn’t try to sugarcoat things. I really liked that perspective. From his first introduction in the book to the last page, Moon remains hot book boyfriend material.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
