My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Rinda Elliott’s first venture into solo publishing in three years is a superbly paced romp through the suspense romance genre with two utterly compelling main characters who I fell in love with completely.
Lane is all fierce independence, determined to get out of the life he’s been blackmailed into now that he has nothing holding him back from getting revenge of the man who has made his life a living Hell for a decade.
Quincy is everything I’d want in a cop – honest and true and hating the fact he lost his badge when he was forced to play dirty to try and out a corrupt senior officer.
Together they are dynamite and the chemistry is off the charts hot. I loved the whole opposites attract premise, the thief and the cop, both forced into close proximity because of their shared goal – to bring down an evil man.
It’s not an overly long read and takes place over a relatively short space of time, but I absolutely believed that these two fell hard for each other within that timeframe and I loved the slow and steady burn through attraction into lust into genuine affection and the fall into love.
There’s a great bunch of secondary characters and good set up for the rest of this series which now feels a lot like a modern-day Adventures of Robin Hood as the so-called bad guys start to right wrongs.
Loved this, can’t wait for more!
