I really wanted to love this book. It had a strong start, but got quickly bogged down to a standstill by the heroine's reluctance to trust the hero. I could not finish it as a result.
Loni Mele is a night school marketing teacher at the local community college—her student’s final exam is how to sell her something she has no intent on buying anymore. Sex. And, she has a dead cat in her trunk. Could her night get any worse? Yes. It can …when she discovers FBI Agent Mitchell Bateman, intent on getting his way.
A man on a mission, Mitch wants only one night with Loni to be able to forget his partner’s suicide. As part of the elite Unit 14, Telepathic Investigation, he can ‘hear’ other’s thoughts. He knows Loni wants him—but he never believed it would end up with Loni filled with regrets and the both of them on the run from a guy desperate enough to end their lives.
As an agent, Mitch should have been protecting Loni, not sleeping with her. Working against those who are one step ahead of him at all times, and who may know of his talent, Mitch isn’t going to hold his breath for another tomorrow… until he can just get through today.
