From Goodreads:IN THIS STUNNING FIRST BOOK FROM NANCY GIDEON’S SIZZLING NEW SERIES, A TENACIOUS COP AND HER SHAPE-SHIFTING ENEMY SACRIFICE EVERYTHING FOR FORBIDDEN DESIRE.
ALL SHE WANTS IS REVENGE.
New Orleans homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is dedicated to bringing down the crime boss responsible for her father’s murder. Using Jimmy Legere’s mysterious and irresistible right-hand man is a dangerous gamble, and not only due to his reputation as more monster than man. Because her feelings for Max Savoie are . . . complicated.
THEN HE RISKS HIS LIFE TO SAVE HERS.
Rescued from the swamps as a child, Max exists silently in Legere’s shadow, heeding only his voice—until Charlotte Caissie awakens his emotions and tests his loyalties. Stepping outside his cautious rules threatens more than just his heart. He could expose his darkest secret.
NOW THEY’RE BOTH IN OVER THEIR HEADS.
Testing boundaries they weren’t meant to cross means facing the truth about who and what they are—and what they need from each other. If Max is the murderer she seeks, Charlotte could be his next victim. She can’t afford to trust any man. Good thing Max isn’t one.
Thanks to Sarah at Simon and Schuster for a copy of this book for review purposes.
This is definitely not the type of book I usually read. You know the type with the picture of a well built man standing there with his muscles rippling all over the place. Not that there is anything wrong with those books they just aren't usually my cup of tea. But I have been trying to widen my reading a bit and when I saw this was offered as a review book I thought I would give it a try.
Well this type of book still isn't my cup of tea but I thought that this had a good premise. I liked the whole aspect of trying to figure out what Max was and I liked the whole dynamic between Max and Charlotte. This is defiantly not your typical romance. If you like your romance a little on the darker side you will probably like this.
I would give this a 3 but only because it wasn't my thing but if you like romance you probably would like this.
This is the first in a series.
