Editorial Reviews

Review

There is an abundance of books that contain the fictional elements of love, delicious passion, devoted lovers, and plots with a twist. It's A Crime has all those elements and it's executed brilliantly.

The book begins as a crime novel, immediately luring you into a frightening ordeal with bodily damage, dismemberment, and light torture. It is not for the faint of heart. Grace and Cole, each face internal and external trials. She's a stunning beauty with uncontrolled chaos in her life. Cole is a powerful man with insatiable sexual need and undeniable love for his Grace. There is an unrelenting fire between these two. - CC

Move over, there's a new book boyfriend in town! Tall, dark, and handsome, Cole Grayson, the sexy billionaire real estate tycoon in C E Hansen's erotic thriller, It's a Crime. Cole offers everything to the reader, good looks, sexual prowess, intelligence, gentlemanly skills, a flawed, troubled character, and a whole lot of love and affection for the protagonist, Grace Preston. Grace is a sophisticated beautiful woman who is immediately drawn to Cole after a chance encounter.

This book gave me everything I could ask for in a novel. Cole and Grace's chemistry was off the charts. I admire an author that captures the chemistry and sexual tension between people with just the written word. This author delivered on that promise.

The plot was a wickedly delicious combination of romance & love between the two principle characters, tempered with a diabolical, crazy, twisted story of murder, intrigue, family secrets and shame, betrayal, and general mayhem.

There were so many twists and turns in this novel but trust me when I say it's an intriguing story and it leaves you guessing until the end of the book.- SB

It's a Crime is a debut novel written by C.E Hansen. It is listed as a romance.
The prologue immediately grasped my attention and had my heart pumping faster. Throughout the book, Hansen weaved a web of mysteries and I caught myself griping a little too hard at my e-reader. Which was refreshing for this genre. But it was not only the thrilling aspect that had my heart going berserk. The steam factor of this book is HIGH. Cole and Grace have perfect chemistry and it shows in every single touch.
The author clearly has an aptitude to write thrillers. A chill traveled up my spine and I shivered each time the killer raised his razor, (I shivered now, just thinking of it.)
The insight from the dying victims was realistic and convincing. I felt as if I stood next to the victims as they heart ceased to beat.
This book presented with many layers. Oh, I love a layered plot. It contains lust, a great and unexpected backstory for Grace's mother, a marvelous depiction of New York and of course great a great deal of romance. Did I mention the steamy love scenes? Whew!
The point of view of this book shifted from Grace's first person point of view to a third point of view of other characters. The style suited the book to expand the story from beyond Graces limited view and present the crime scenes as well as the twisted mind of the killer.
The ending is beautiful; it ties all loose ends and gives closure. Yes, it is a HEA. And after going to hell and back, these characters deserve.
This was an awesome read. I look forward for the next book from this author. Definitely a recommend read.
Five thrilling stars!

I really enjoyed this one! It's a Crime by C.E. Hansen reminded me why I've always liked the Romantic Suspense genre.. and although this one was not real suspenseful, it had just enough to add a bit of nail biting.

First we've got Grace Preston.. she's gorgeous, has money, owns her own boutique, and has a great bff. She lost her fiancé 5 years ago and even though she's pretty much got past the loss.. she still feels like no one else could take his place. She's not looking for a relationship...

Then we've got Cole Grayson.. extremely sexy commercial real estate mogul. He also happens to be a billionaire. He's suffered loss also... losing his family as a young teen he closed himself to the outside world. The only thing he wanted to do was make a name for himself..but even more so, he wanted to find the person responsible for killing his mother, father, and little brother. He'll never be able to let his demons go until he gets revenge.

Grace and Cole meet each other for the first time at a local bar called Luke's. It's lust at first sight.... Cole is just in town for business.. he owns one of the hotels and has a permanent penthouse suite..so they go back to his place that night and holy hotness!! OK.. listen up.. we've got some serious sexy times going on here.. Ms. Hansen did not skip on the details at all. I'm a details kinda girl and whoa.. these were just the type of scenes that I LOVE.

So as Grace and Cole are getting to know each other and both are falling quickly.. Cole is still keeping himself at a distance. He wants Grace, but he can't let himself have her. He's not ready and wont be until he gets his revenge on the guy that killed his family. While all this is going on..there is a crazy psycho serial killer out there..

Wealthy New York socialite Grace Preston uses men for amusement, holding her heart inside an ice fortress for protection. Spurned by a sociopathic male model, Grace picks up a new man with all the right moves; smooth as bourbon, Cole slides under her wall and touches her in places she thought were well-guarded. But after a weekend of fiery passion, he leaves, devastating her.

Cole Grayson has spent ten years building his commercial real estate firm and chasing the arsonist who killed his family when he was a boy. Women are a dalliance, and have no place in his personal quest. Then Grace rocks his world—not only sexually, but in her arms, his nightmares cease. To protect her, he pushes her away; he’s close to finding the culprit and Grace must not get tangled in the cross-fire.

When women matching Grace’s description start turning up dead in Central Park, Cole is forced to divide his influence between personal revenge and protection for the woman he has come to love. But throwing money at the problem only goes so far. Grace is in danger—can he get to her in time?

Has it all! I think it's hard to balance the romance/steamy stuff with great suspense and plot. Most books I've read have too much of one and not enough of the other. This book really struck the right balance! I thought the different plot lines were introduced with great timing and with enough twists that the reader wasn't certain how everything would converge. Very unusual for a book to respect the reader enough to peel back the mystery several chapters from the end (because most have guessed anyway by then) and then keep the suspense going all the way to the end. It was so good, I didn't put it down after many many many editing errors. Such a wonderful book to suffer from no beta readers! To instead of too, than instead of then, missing words, switched words, people that ... instead of people who did something. I'm going right into the next book and hope C.E. has some more!! But, please edit!!
