Book Description: She’s the one woman he can’t have.
Past experience has taught FBI Special Agent Clay Bauer not to trust his judgment when it comes to the opposite sex, yet despite his jaded outlook there’s one woman he can’t get out of his head—and she’s off limits. They’re opposites in every way but Zoe’s gotten deep under his skin and when she’s drawn into a dangerous situation against a faceless enemy he steps in to help protect her. Then she disappears without a trace and the loss leaves him reeling. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back alive.
By the time he realizes what she means to him it could be too late.
Former family lawyer Zoe Renard has been through her own heartbreak but she can’t ignore the magnetic pull between her and Clay. When he comes to New Orleans for a conference, it’s the perfect opportunity for her to see if there might be something real between them. Just as desire ignites into something more powerful than either of them imagined, she’s targeted by a madman bent on revenge. With her life on the line, it’s a race for Clay and his teammates to find her and save her from certain death.
Captivation: I wasn’t sure if I’d like this book as much, given the personality indicators from the prior books, but quickly found that I simply could not put it down!
Sizzle: This book contains really well written foreplay and intimacy scenes!
Romance: Pretty neat story in this book! Though it did feel a little rushed and lacked some development with the main relationship.
Enjoyment: Cross writes some interesting characters, but this book’s Zoe and Bauer are wonderfully unique! This book
Literacy: I did find several editing errors, but not enough for me to become distracted from the story itself.
Overall, This is my favorite book in the series so far. The characters are refreshingly unique, something like this isn’t seen in thrilling romances.
