Deputy DA Margo Keyes is looking forward to this trip with as much enthusiasm as she’d have for a root canal. There’s the Philly summer heat, the high school reunion she’d rather avoid, and the speech she’d be giving as a last-minute stand-in for her boss. Mostly there’s facing high school crush Tony Alessandro. When she’d last seen the Philly cop, he’d danced her out of his sister’s wedding reception to a dark room where he’d kissed her senseless. If his nephew hadn’t interrupted they’d have . . . well, who knows?
Tony had disappeared on some family errand. She went home to Portland, Oregon the next day. She hadn’t heard from him since.
However, her homecoming turns out better than expected. The reunion and the speech work out. Even better, when she and Tony pick up where they left off in that dark room, the only heat that’s unbearable is what they generate in bed.
Margo returns to Portland wondering if she and Tony have started something she might not be ready for, relieved she’s put a whole continent between them to give her breathing room to sort it. Then his work with a federal task force investigating industrial espionage brings him to Portland. And an accidental swap of messenger bags on her flight home puts her in the middle of the investigation.
Tony wants her out of the way of the bad guys and focused on him. She wants to use a secret from her past to wrap up the case. And maybe avoid having to think about what’s happening between them.
They can’t both win. Or can they?
I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for my honest review. I love sexy, hot Italian men and this author nailed it with Tony! Falling for the girl he grew up was easy but getting her to realize that what they have is special and forever, is not all it is cracked up to be!
Margo feels the attraction between her and Tony but as great as the passion is, she has trouble getting out of her own insecure head. When they realize that a series of chance meetings have put her right in the crosshairs of the Russians, they both realize the power of love. Margo turns into a rock star when she convinces the man behind the threats that she is more like her felon father by trying to up the selling price of piece of industrial intel. I was surprised at who else was behind this little conspiracy.
Check out this great read and join me tomorrow when I sit down and interview Margo and Tony!
