He needs to keep the gorgeous competition out of his head…and his bed.
Former FBI agent Abe Royal believes in hard work, justice, and a suit for every occasion. He’s hot on the trail of an elusive book thief when he realizes he’s being followed…by a sultry, cunning stranger.
Ambitious, young detective Sloane Argento has just been handed the case of a lifetime. It’s a challenge she’s prepared to meet head-on. Until she finds herself in a sexy game of cat-and-mouse with the devastatingly handsome competition. Tempting the sinful devil hidden beneath his cool façade might just become as much a priority as capturing the criminal.
Abe’s stoic restraint shows cracks every time Sloane gets too close. He needs distance, rules to protect himself. But when teaming up is the only way to race the ticking clock, he’s left wondering just how long he can deny his attraction to this risky, red-hot distraction.
Author’s Note: Insta-lust meets suspense in this action-packed, flaming-hot romance about a stoic hero with a guarded heart and a kick-ass heroine with a few secrets.
I AM NOT OKAY!!!
Abe and Sloane own me heart and soul, and I will lay down my life for him.
The instant lust that sparked between these two almost took me out. Like I didn’t know what to do with myself while reading. I thought I should give up on life and start a cult to praise our Lords and saviors Abe and Sloane. But I talked myself down from that.
The feral attraction between these two was only one aspect of how freaking beautiful their love is. The emotional connection they shared, the way they grew to trust each other with their deepest secrets, it just made my heart hurt with happiness.
I have so much to say about these two. There so many ways that I love them dearly, but I think this story is the kind that needs to be experienced, to be felt and admired. I really cannot stop thinking about it and I know anyone who reads it will feel the same as I do.
I cried when I read the last line of the book. Then I cried again because I knew I’ll miss these headstrong agents and their burning love. This was such a beautiful, unique series and I just know they’ll stay in my heart forever.
