Description (GoodReads): Staying overnight in a luxury hotel, Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde overhears a high-profile murder involving a U.S. Senator. Special Agent Jack Pallas is assigned to the investigation-the same Jack Pallas who still blames her for nearly ruining his career three years ago. Now the pair will have to put their rocky past behind them, focus on the case at hand-and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension.
This is the first novel I’ve read by this author and I loved it. The characters, Cameron and Jack have a history, and now must work together or someone’s going to get hurt.
Oh, Ms. James what you do to your readers…
I particularly love that the dress on the cover actually correlates with the dress Cameron wears in the novel and I tweeted this to the author. She said she rewrote the dress after she saw the cover. HOT. o.o
Cameron and Jack and strong people who know what they want. But, with Cameron’s life possibly in danger and a scandal in the midst Jack doesn’t have much choice. He has to stay close to Cameron even if the two might end up killing each other.
Jack’s partner is hilarious. He says the most random things, but manages to relate it to work. He’s eager to push Jack’s buttons, but also sees the raw sexual tension (OMG, I felt the tension) between Jack and Cameron and will stop at nothing to tease Jack.
All good fun. It’s a fun, light read with a potentially dark mystery plot. Julie James is a former lawyer so she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to the legal terms and situations in this novel and her others. I liked this bit of authenticity having been previously corrupted by Law & Order and NCIS.
Can’t wait for the next book. I’m all anxious now.
