A woman who values her independence above all else, Rachael Gooding excels at keeping men at a distance. Wielding her exotic good looks and razor sharp wit to intimidate rather than attract, she’s managed to avoid the pain and complications she knows would come with a serious relationship.
At the top of her game, Rachael believes all’s right with her world, but when a dangerous, unknown stalker begins to threaten her, she’s forced to turn to Detective Eugene Simms, a man she’s wildly attracted to but has never been able to intimidate—one she fears could break her carefully guarded heart if she gave him the chance.
When a man from her past is murdered in the park across the street from her apartment, Rachael must decide whether to tell Simms about her past and risk exposing everything she’s spent the last ten years guarding so carefully. But telling all she knows may mean giving up something she’s always wanted but never thought she could have.
The chemistry between the lead characters was simply crackling. The flawless characterization aided the plot very much in being cohesive. The romance and the suspense angle both blended seamlessly, making the book a pleasurable read. The plot line had its fair share of twists, thereby keeping the suspense element alive.
The writing was simply gripping. I couldn't put the book down. Patricia Paris has a wicked sense of humor. Both the leading characters were simply great and the tirade between them was highly entertaining. Nothing beats steamy romance with the right mix of humor. The book has all the ingredients in correct proportion, thereby making it perfect entertainment.
This is not my first Patricia Paris book, and it surely won't be my last! I love how Paris wove the mystery through the plot, I'd start to think I knew who the stalker was, then she'd throw a twist that would have me second and third guessing myself. A fast read and fab read! Can't wait for the next.
