I really liked this book, even more than I thought I might. It was well- written and plotted, and the storylines were captivating right up to the end. It definitely got my attention from the intriguing opening and I wanted to know what had happened with Shelley and Joey and her past with Gianni… The story has several interweaving plotlines that bring several characters into the fold – some more interesting (and well-developed) than others. It definitely has its thrilling/dangerous side… But also romantic and sexy and sweet. It is really fast-paced, but it isn’t a ‘quick’ read (if that makes sense) There are too many interesting events and crazy experiences here to gloss over so Ms. Howes takes her time in developing the storylines so that we the readers are thoroughly invested the whole way through as sins of the past and certain characters come to light in very dramatic, unexpected ways. There’s lots of little threads here in this story that keep us hooked, and I found myself completely lost in this dangerous, sexy world she recanted night after night. Was almost disappointed when I was done, but the ending gave the emotional satisfaction I look for in a great book, which is rare for me these days, especially in this genre. Well done. Recommend to fans of sexxy thrillers/suspense or anyone who just enjoys an entertaining, well-written story with lots of drama and you actually feel like you are a part of the thrilling action unfold.
