Wow! Talk about a nail biting/sitting on the edge of your seat read! This book has so much more than a hot romance…it’s a thriller that will keep you guessing to the very end. I was surprised! After reading the blurb, I thought this story would be a quick and enjoyable ready (and it was!), I didn’t realize how thrilling, suspenseful and detailed this story was going to be. I really enjoyed it!
Trigger and Emma have an interesting past. They once knew each other and I would have really loved to have “seen” more of that before they parted ways. I think that would have helped build up the story and their relationship even more. Besides that, I really enjoyed the moment that they “meet” each other again. They had amazing chemistry and some really great banter!
