Editorial Reviews

Review

"Detective Aurora Morelli is my kind of gal. No one pushes her around and no one gets in her way. Particularly when she is out to get the vicious rapist who hurt her partner. Enter the hunky Kai who is as cocky as Aurora is sassy and just as determined to get the bad guy. Great chemistry in a fast paced Las Vegas style mystery thriller with two hot protagonists make this a book you'll gobble up and hurry to buy the sequel. A don't miss!" ~ reviewed by windigo


"Aurora Morelli is as tough as they come. Ultra feminine yet wielding a big stick and a bigger attitude. When her partner is brutally hurt, she is determined to crack the creep who did it. Her interrogation tactics squeeze the truth out of a wuss of an informant, but she meets her match in her new partner, a sexy, arrogant purse-carrying cowboy, Kai Larson. When he covers her during a gunfight, sparks fly in more ways than one and chemistry simmers. This is a short story to introduction to the series." ~ reviewed by Clare Chu


"Not disappointed at all! On my way to book number 2. I have to know about the slime ball Rhondo! I'm not going to spoil anything, your just going to have to read for yourself and Yes! It is worth the ride of not being able to put your book down until it's done! Worthy! So get it and start reading. You won't regret it!"
~ reviewed by A. Drahos - addicted reader

From the Author

Suspenseful and fast-paced, this short story will introduce you to Aurora Morelli and Kai Lawson; the characters who star in the full-length sequel "Roll the Dice" (to be released September 15, 2012). Forced to take on a new partner, after a serial rapist attacks her former one, annoys Aurora big time. Especially when he's the kind of hotshot she normally stays as far away from as possible. But, because they both want this man more than anything else, they ignore the irritating explosions they set off from one another. And finding this slimeball becomes their ultimate goal.

I thought this was a complete book not just a few pages. Very disappointing. Even though it was just a prequel it was very misleading.

Partners is a fast paced start to a great series about Aurora Morelli, a tough cop who sets out to find a serial rapist.
Cannot wait to read the next book in the Vegas Series, where she gets a hot sexy new partner who also has his own agenda for finding the rapist.

This is a short story to introduction to the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh November 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book didn't capture my attention early enough so I ended up skipping around a lot. The heroine was a bit to prickly for me and the hero came across as being too impersonal. He's handsome and somewhat flirty/boyish so I couldn't wrap my brain around why the heroine, who is smart and dedicated to her job, would have any interest in him. Ayway,since I finished the book but wouldn't recommend it, I give it two stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Romance or an Action Packed Police Drama September 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I couldn't decide from the prequel story, whether it was a romance or action packed police drama. Either one would've been great to read, but, once I had read the Ch. 1 of the book, Roll the Dice, it became clearer that it was all that, rolled into one. I liked the action, the sassy Aurora, the later introduced Kai, even Ham, Debbie, and Cory had interesting personalities. Partners is a separate story, yet also a great introduction to Roll the Dice.

Interesting comebacks, such as "little lietenant" in reference to her old partner's still-in-the-womb baby, made Auroras' character more rounded and interesting.

I even learned a new word, druthers, from Partners.

Loved the short intro, looking forward to reading the follow-up book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vegas series May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An introduction that catches you up to speed of who the characters and what their story is in the Vegas series. As interesting as any T.V. crime series out there, it is intricate in plot and in it's characters. You are thrown into the crime world of Las Vegas with tough cop Aurora. She is strong and as a woman in a difficult line of work demands respect and earns it. Her softer side is lurking beneath that hard exterior. Unhappy with a new partner and the hunt still on for the bad guy, the next book sounds very intriguing! 3.5 stars
