Tara Wyatt practically set fire to my eReader with this sizzling suspense. Sawyer Matthews and Brooke Simmons have combustible chemistry and I couldn’t put this book down until I found out just where their attraction would take them. I loved the maturity of this story. The characters themselves might not have been old but their experiences gave them each a depth beyond their years. I loved how the author presented all them at face value and how there were no excuses made for their behaviour, not softening of hard edges or hardening of soft edges either. I loved how emotional and gritty the story was. How all the players in the story fit together to create an ensemble and scenario that kept me eagerly flipping pages. The action, adventure and the relationships all wove together to bring about a fascinating story that has hooked me on the series. I cannot wait to see what happens next, in the professional and personal lives of this elite police team. If your looking for sizzling, sentimental and suspenseful this one is a must read.
The Story: Brooke Summers has horrible luck when it comes to her relationships but her career is taking off. She has just joined the elite squad only to find out her new partner is the one night stand she just had. Can things get any worse? Determined to take down the gang responsible for the death of his partner Sawyer Matthews only lives for his job and when his new partner shows up he can’t believe it. Can these two work together, ignore their connection and catch the bad guys?
The first in a sexy new series from Tara Wyatt!
Detective Sawyer Matthews isn’t just having a bad day—he’s having the worst day. His hunt for the criminal who killed his team member has stalled and now… he’s got to play nice with his new, totally unwanted partner. It’s not that she isn’t qualified, or that he doesn’t like her—it’s because he knows what she looks like naked. So very, very naked.
Brooke Simmons finally landed her dream job working for H.E.A.T, an elite undercover detective squad, and she’s not giving up simply because she had a one-night-stand with her sullen—but undeniably sexy—new partner. They’ll just have to keep it professional. Easier said than done, considering their first case requires Sawyer to infiltrate a drug cartel operating out of a male strip show. Watching him do his best Magic Mike impression every night isn’t just hot—it’s torture.
Sawyer doesn’t need any distractions, yet his attraction to Brooke is explosive and he can’t resist going for round two. Or three. Or four. But as their investigation progresses and danger mounts, they’ll have to put their jobs, hearts, and lives on the line to fight… for each other, for survival, and for justice.
