From the Author
Here's a sneak peek:
I once asked my mother whatfirst attracted her to my father. She said it was his eyes--the kindness in hiseyes. To understand Moon's eyes you need to see the complete package.
His mind is sharp; he easily reads people. He reads me like he sees inside mymind and plucks out my thoughts.
His skin is smoke; it's the only way to describe it now that I've had some timeto look at him. If I knew nothing about him and saw him on the street, I wouldthink Hawaiian or Samoan.
He's exotic and his eyes grab you. Blue eyes have never been my thing. And theword "kind" can't be used in conjunction with Moon's eyes. They'reintense--treacherous--deadly. Then sometimes, when he looks at me, they gosteamy hot. The kind of hot that says I want to lick you from the bottom to thetop and then eat you slowly. So slowly, you won't stop screaming until you'recompletely undone.
I'm an ex-cop and will always have a cop's heart.
Moon's a criminal and controls a criminal empire. I want him and it's playinghavoc with my soul.

Madison Abigail Kinlock (MAK) has been a PI for two years following an off duty injury that ended her Phoenix PD career. She is working a cheating spouse case when she's knocked unconscious and awakens in a bedroom of Phoenix's most notorious crime lord. There's an instant attraction to the dangerous alpha male, but Mak knows that's a line she can never cross. That's until her car is forced off a mountain road and Moon is the only one she can call-the only one she can trust. Because if what she suspects is true, it was a cop that ran her car over the edge and down the cliff, a cop who isn't afraid to kill. And in her world of black and white, blue is turning black, and black is turning grey.
Madison Abigail Kinlock, known to most as Mak, is a former police officer turned private investigator. She had dreamed of being a cop her whole life, so her career ending shoulder injury 3 years into her dream was a rude awakening. She's not really qualified for much else, and she can't afford to only work part time to finish school. But, a girl's got to eat, so she swallows her pride, and her disdain, and becomes a PI. Due to this decision, she's no longer welcome in her old cop circles. The blue line isn't fond of PIs, as it turns out. She lives in Phoenix, but her parents have retired to Florida, so she really doesn't have anyone anymore. But, she still isn't prepared for the trouble she's about to get into.
Moon controls Arizona's biggest crime organization. He's ruthless, scary, and not in any way "respectable". He's also sexy as hell. They even have classes on him and his organization in the police academy. That's how Mak knows who he is as soon as she sees him in person for the first time. Moon has no living immediate family, and so he treats his people as family. He's good to them, and they're loyal to him. Everyone has their own reasons for becoming who they are, and Moon is no different. But he doesn't use anything about his past to justify his actions. He knows he's a bad guy, and he's made peace with that fact. But, he wants Madison. Badly. And he works to convince her to give him a chance, though they come at the law from opposite ends.
Moon and Mak's chemistry was off the charts hot, and I loved their push-and-pull dynamic. She doesn't understand her reaction to him, as she's always believed him to be a killer and all around bad guy. This book is only told in Mak's point of view, so we don't know much about Moon's inner thoughts unless he decides to share them with her. So there's a lot of frustration on her end about her inability to stop thinking about him, and what that could end up meaning for her, and her life. There was also some brutal violence in the story, and that was often hard to read, even when it was only someone's history being discussed, much less when it was actually happening on the page.
The world created here, while dangerous and violent, is enthralling, and I found myself constantly wanting to know more. Things move quickly, but I was so there for the ride. One of my favorite side characters, Alex Gomez, Moon's right hand man, is the hero of book 2, which is definitely going on my list. It appears the first 5 books of this series are already currently available.
One of the things I loved about Moon and Mak, is that they're always honest with each other. Even when it hurts. Especially then. Moon never hides who he is, he basically just dares her to accept him. She never hides her dislike of many aspects of his life, and has him rethinking some things, and compromising on others. He'll never be a "good guy", but he lives by his own code of ethics, and he sleeps well at night. Mak has to figure out if she's willing to accept that or not. I, as the reader, had to do the same.
I really loved this book, and how it made me think, feel, and question things. It was so much more than I was expecting. Also, discovering the author's own history as a police officer made things even more believable. I definitely recommend this book to romantic suspense lovers, especially those that love a good criminal anti-hero!
