Who doesn't have a secret or two that they don't want to share. Problem is, Reaper's "secret" is what has made him into who he is. He presents as an average guy to the woman he has hired to find him a romantic interest. He's anything but. Annique takes this as a personal affront and goes all out to find a match. So what if she finds him attractive, what's that got to do with anything?
Two very unique personalities clash and mesh, each holding back for their own reasons. As the book begins, Reaper is struggling with what he sees in his future and decides to make some adjustments. I enjoyed the banter while he and Annique addressed his un-matchable status. While Annique set him up with brain surgeons, he found she was who attracted his interest. As he wears her down, an almost deadly lunch date has him thinking protection and possession where Annique is concerned. This was never a problem for him before, so color him intrigued. Annique has her own ghost bouncing around in a closet, but she actually has more secrets than even she knows. It really is a small world.
Not having read the previous books in this series, I did not feel left out. The story flowed nicely and I was entertained as well as intrigued as to the identity of the mysterious shooter(s). It took awhile for Reaper and Annique to get intimate, but once they did it was game on. The usual delightful snark was present, ridiculous situations arose, and belief had to be suspended. All in all a great way to spend an afternoon.
