B.B. Cruz gives readers a unique romantic suspense with this debut title. Carino Montgomery is an extremely complex heroine and I enjoyed watching someone with such a strong work ethic struggle with her emotions and how they would impact her career. Ramon Terrones was equally complex and speaking for myself I have always had a soft spot for bad guys. I often wonder what their story is and just what has led them down the path they have taken. Ramon is such an endearing man that I couldn't help but fall under his spell and hold my breath to see just how Carino was going to react to him. Honestly I would have expected his criminal activities would turn me off but because it was never really a secret I instead found myself understanding him. The intrigue just adds to the fantastic connection between these two and the story and all the characters work seamlessly to give the reader a fabulous story. As this is the author's debut title I am excited to see just what comes next, because this will be a difficult book to follow. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a suspense with a successfully sensual twist.
