When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious—and in far more danger—than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her .
Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires—or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer's crosshairs?
In My Own Words:
After years on the run and in hiding, when a handsome new neighbor shows interest in Plain Ole Sue, Pepper can't help but take what she has so long denied herself, companionship and kindness. Keeping herself on guard, she is slow to trust and even slower to open up. When Logan finally gets in, she realizes he isn't what he appears to be and her trust was ill given. Logan must convince Pepper to not only forgive him but to trust him again as the killer is now after her. Can she trust again, not only with her life but with her heart?
What a way to start a series. A little lust, intrigue and camouflage. I loved everything about this book. Suspense in that you didn't know what was going to happen next and a love connection that is severed with lies, but then mended with love. Then you have the brother and sister element, and hide and seek. I was SURE I knew who the dirty cops were, and I was soooo very wrong. I couldn't put this one down. Can't wait for the next in line.
