Just like its stunningly gorgeous cover this story will stop you in its tracks. And run over you with the powerful storytelling and passionate characters. From the first page I was sucked in with the vivid imagery of a life on the edge. The edge of danger and destruction and love. Olivia as the smart, sexy psych professor is a spectacular character. Strong, beautiful and brilliant. She shines in this story that has her in the grips of the deadly cartel boss Nico. What a panty melting stud! He can run his hands over me any day! And chemistry? Olivia and Nico’s is off the charts right from the first eye popping smolder. I’ll tell, I have a bad habit of sometimes flipping to the end and reading the last paragraph. BIG mistake in this case. I didn’t read the paragraph because landed on the author’s note. Huge surprise that sorta ruin part of the story for me even if I had an inkling that something was up. DON’T READ REVIEWS WITH SPOILERS! This story has tons of twists and turns and surprises that need to remain hidden until they are revealed at the right time. Moving on…this story is so good. One of the best and most intricate romance suspenses I’ve read. If you’re familiar with this author superb craftsmanship then you know that you’ll get a gem of a story with outstanding characters. Just a few things I could have done without but so minor it didn’t affect the story and to someone else they were probably some of the best parts. Real emotional heart squeezers. There were a few in the story right along with the scorching romance. Yes, Olivia and Nico set the sheets on fire a few times. One hot couple! This story has it all with the deadly suspense, complex plot, emotional family issues and a slow burn romance. A must read!
