I loved the plot idea. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a man carrying a badge and gun, or wearing dog tags. When you find an alpha male who's done both... Hot.
Alex is an FBI agent with the Chicago Violent Crimes Task Force. Bette is a mob princess avoiding her family ties like the plague. Before our story opens Alex met Bette and helped get her away from a stalker. He helped her relocate and got her a job with his sister, a veterinarian in upstate New York. Before she hops on the plane, he kisses her and in the heat of the moment promises to call her. And never does.
Fast forward six months - where our story begins - and Alex's sister, Bette's boss, has been kidnapped. When the local LEO give her the brush off she calls Alex, who's on the first plane home. Alex has already lost one sibling - his twin Andrew- when he was a teenager. Andrew had also disappeared. The local LEO are less than cooperative and the Detective handling the investigation makes you wonder if he pulled his badge out of a Cracker Jacks box.
Here's where it gets tricky. I have a background in law enforcement and to me it felt like the author didn't really know Alex, and we as a reader suffer for it. The first half of the book we see Alex spinning his wheels, essentially standing around doing nothing. He's on a Violent Crimes Task Force for crying out loud, he's been an agent for a good while which means he has contacts, he knows the right people. While those people can't work in an official capacity, there isn't an LEO out there that wouldn't tap every resource he had, call in every favor ever owed, and owe a few in return, if one of his own were missing.
There were a few other minor plot holes that didn't get tied up as neatly as I would have liked, but all in all it was a good read. Alex was still warm and personable, Bette was feisty and sassy. Adult language was minimal; sex wasn't overly explicit, but occurred several times throughout the book.
