Jessica Florence is a new author for me but between the cover and the blurb I was very excited to read this.
Andi Slaton is on a bachelorette night when she first sets eyes on sexy Ryder, and it seems it is lust at first sight for the FBI agent who is determined to use his skills to find out who she is and where he can find her.
When Ryder surprises cake shop owner Andi with a visit, she decides that she wont be playing hard to get and they embark on a passionate and steamy affair.
It becomes apparent early on that Andi is the link that Ryder needs in order to take down the very man he has been working to take down for a long time, and although Andi will do anything to help catch the bad guy, Ryder is finding it hard to watch his new girlfriend get involved with his world that is often dark.
“I’m gonna fuck you in your kitchen.
I’m gonna make you come so much that you will feel me touching you even when I’m not there.
And when you are out with that asshat, you’re gonna know you’re mine.”
I don’t like to compare authors, but this was very reminiscent of an Aurora Rose Reynolds novel.
Alpha male, check
Sweet but feisty heroine, check
Extremely hot sex, check
Quick to fall in love, check
Just the right amount of drama, check
If it were not for the instalove I probably would have loved it more, I personally prefer a bit of a slow burner but the chemistry and sex scenes were very well written and probably my favourite parts of the book. I am clueless to how FBI operations run, but I think you may need to suspend a bit of belief here and take this book for what it is, a fun and steamy read.
I look forward to seeing how the author progresses in future books.
This is a standalone, written in dual POV.
