Then her savior, who had been in the bar at the country club and saw it all, pulls his shiny black Mustang to the side of the road to give her a lift home. Jason McIntyre, her step-brother who she hadn’t seen in ten years, isn’t home for a family reunion. He’s on a covert mission investigating her, her husband, and her father’s involvement in a colossal Ponzi scheme. He is going to find it difficult not to blow his cover, especially after he drops Tammy-Jo off at her gated home and she trips over her husband’s dead body.
The plot moves fast and the suspense is high as the case now involves murder. The characters are all well developed and realistic. The dialogue fits the situations that arise as the plot twists. It’s hard for TJ and Jason to deny their attraction is as strong now as it was in high school. And it’s heartbreaking watching Jason come to terms with his mother’s increasing dementia.
I only have one complaint. Jason leaves his Mustang for TJ to drive when he takes his mother to dinner, with a note for her to join them when she awakens from her nap. Men don’t just leave their babies for any woman to drive, it was a sweet gesture. However, when Jason and his mother leave the restaurant they end up in a car chase and Jason and his mom are suddenly in his souped-up Mustang. I understand he needed it at that moment and his mother is adorably priceless during the chase. It is one of my favorite scenes in the story. Since this situation doesn’t affect the plot, I am hesitant to take any marks away. It is also the ONLY editing or proofing issue I came across, so I’m willing to let it slide.
If you are in the mood for a sexy romantic suspense, I would recommend Tempted by Mr. Wrong.
FYI: Sexual situations and content. One F-bomb dropped. **Originally written for "BigAl’s Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. ** October 25, 2017
Format/Typo Issues: Only the issue I mentioned above.
Jason’s back in town on a covert operation to bring down two men closest to Tammy Jo. Revenge is sweet, or so thinks Jason. But Jason didn’t expect murder to enter the picture and the one woman who’s stolen his heart may just be the murderer. Can Jason keep his salacious feelings for Tammy Jo at bay while he’s investigating or will he be tempted to dip into Tammy Jo’s honey pot once more?
This is the first step-brother romance I’ve read and leave it to Jacquie Biggar to make it more than just sex. There’s so many layers to this story and I loved it! First, there’s the takedown of a ponzi scheme that Jason’s investigating. Then, there’s the steamy romance between Jason and Tammy Jo. There’s the revenge Jason is seeking with his step-father (Tammy Jo’s father). Oh, plus a murder to solve and Tammy Jo to be cleared. Did I mention the touching sub-plot of how Jason’s mother is suffering from Alzheimer’s?
The suspense was spot-on and something I come to expect now from Biggar’s bestselling books. Sizzling romance with steamy love scenes, also a must in her novels, but it’s the characters that make this a five star and a must-read. I laughed, I swooned, I gasped (totally didn’t figure out the murderer until Biggar revealed it), I cried. Highly recommend!
Favorite Character/Quote: Jason. I loved everything about him from his magnetic sapphire eyes to his fierce love for his mother, from his vow for revenge to his passionate forbidden love for his step-sister. He’s a broken alpha hero but Tammy Jo just might be able to put him back together again.
My Rating: 5 stars
The heroine is as down-on-her-luck as she could be. She’s in a pickle from the opening page, and things only get worse from there. But despite all the distress, I wouldn’t say she’s a damsel waiting to be saved. She has attitude, fortitude, spirit.
Doesn’t mean the hero isn’t an alpha male determined to save her, though. He very much is, even though he resists at first given their history.
I love it when chemistry overrides practicality, and that’s exactly what happens here. They both fight the attraction, and they both fail miserably. Those hot-and-heavy scenes more than satisfy any romance lover’s expectations.
The situation is unlikely to be one you’ll ever experience in real life (thank goodness for that!) but it’s not unbelievable. The story was a lovely blend of high-stakes, low points, and all the good stuff in between. The plot moved along at a brisk pace, the good characters are ones you’d like to have a drink with and the bad ones will make your hate-list.
I’ve had this author on my radar for some time now, but I never got around to reading her work before. I’m really glad I made the time to read this story. I highly recommend it. And now Jacquie Biggar’s other titles are moving up in my TBR pile.
