Special Agent Gabriel Ferreira is beyond alpha male hot, strong and sexy. He is undercover as a male escort to try and catch a killer. Enter his high school sweetheart Scarlett Bishop as his date for the evening and the world suddenly tilts on its axes. How can he resist her, how can he keep her safe and how will he ever catch the killer with her as such a delectable distraction? .. Loved every heart pounding moment.
I enjoyed the premise of this book. I was intrigued with the male hero being a gigolo and his date being his ex-girlfriend. I was looking forward to this being a fun and interesting read.
Suzanne Rock did a nice job of setting up the story, giving the back-story and getting the two of them back together again. Unfortunately, she did confuse me a few times throughout the story and I had some small problems with the flow of the book.
Scarlett was a bit of a mess. She was feisty and determined then insecure and mousey; sexy and hot then insecure and mousey. She couldn’t make up her mind about her feelings, herself or her business. She gave me whiplash at times and I wasn’t sure what to expect from her next. And, to top it all off, she felt like she was lied to … she was not understanding at all and, I felt, that her feelings were her number one priority and nothing that Gabe could do or say was right. So what if he was undercover, protecting her, trying to catch a killer that had her in his sights … he didn’t tell her that he was a cop and that was the end all and be all in her eyes.
And, Gabe … well, I gave him a lot of credit with putting up with Scarlett’s mood swings. He was just as conflicted about things as she was. He knew that he had no business wanting her, knew that he made a mistake in his past with her but also knew that there was no way to turn off his libido or his heart. He gave her all that he could, knew that he laid his life and his heart on the line for her and all he could do was hope for the best.
Compromise and forgiveness are words that exist in all relationships and I was waiting for that throughout the whole story. Unfortunately, I didn’t get it. Yes, Gabe made a mistake when they were teen-agers. Yes, he didn’t tell her he was undercover. But Scarlett’s spoiled-rotten attitude just turned me off and I felt that there were better ways to handle the situations that did arise.
Review copy provided for a voluntary and honest review.
Scarlett has become an art gallery owner specializing in contemporary art. She is in Miami to attend a huge art showing but has forgotten one thing. Due to catching her boyfriend cheating on her & breaking up, she doesn't have a date for the events & her rival is sure to make a point of rubbing her nose in it. Her assistant, Violet convinces her to hire an escort. Scarlett can't believe it's her high school love. He was planning on becoming a cop so why is he working as a cop?
The main premise is male escorts being killed which is a refreshing change. It seems like everyone is writing about females as the victims so I was pulled into the story right away. I love that the writer took the time to set up the history & back story but didn't have it drag on for too long. The attraction between Scarlett & Gabe was still there & the sexual tension was hot & intense. Scarlett's character was that of a strong woman just beginning to regain her confidence after being put down by her mentor. Her growth made a good side point to the story. The plot twist was not apparent from the beginning but rather came on slowly after the book was over halfway. If you enjoy sexy, romantic suspense with some hot sexy scenes, you'll love this one.
Recently a few male escorts have shown up dead so Gabe is working undercover as an escort. He is shocked to find out his next client is none other than his high school girlfriend Scarlett. The family business is law enforcement so he ended things before he joined the academy as he had seen first hand the toll being a cop takes on a marriage.
As they spend time together their old feelings resurface but as they get closer to the killer will they be able to escape with their lives?
This is a story about a second chance with your first love and had a good combination of romance, suspense and twists. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
I enjoyed this overall. There were places I thought the pacing was a little unsteady and there were parts where I felt that it skipped a bit, but I enjoyed it overall. And, in the areas where I thought it seemed a little fast, I can tell what the author was doing, and I think it was intentional.
I enjoyed this title overall, and I do recommend it.
