Keaton Bridge is one hundred percent bad boy.
Cassie doesn't need a boy and certainly not a bad one. Nope. She fights crime for a living, and everything about this guy screams trouble, from his charming British accent to his mysterious past.
And Cassie doesn't do trouble.
Keaton's got his own trouble. He's trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility.
All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can't imagine living happily ever after without her.
All they have to do is walk away.
But neither of them ever walks away from a challenge.
There is so much about this book that I want to put in this review. So many great moments, so many perfectly crafted and precisely written scenes that jump off the page. So many lines of dialog and compelling writing.
But, all of that would be spoiling it for the next person who reads this book, so I am not going to say anything specific. But know, there will be scenes that you read again, as they jump off the page. There will be moments with the characters that have you relating to them, and feeling for them, and wanting things for them. You will be drawn in to the story, you won't want it to end...and yet you will be utterly charmed and totally satisfied when the book is over.
Keaton and Cassie are the perfect couple. There's just one tiny problem-he's a criminal and she is an FBI agent. But, really, just a tiny issue to solve. Or not. But, solve it they do. First by telling themselves to ignore the attraction, and then by telling themselves it is fleeting, that it will be temporary.
But, as in all good books with a happy ending, they work it out. There are twists and turns in their story. A couple of them I saw coming, as the book is written so strongly it leads the reader to the right conclusions. And there was the twist that I absolutely didn't see coming. The twist that made me think of Sandra Brown and the moment in her books where you find yourself staring at the book, rereading a sentence and thinking "well, that all makes sense now".
I recommend this title.

About the AuthorCD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
