April Masters is a tough, devious detective. She needs to be. Her brief is to trap an art dealer who is suspected of being behind the theft and eventual sale of a very valuable painting. To build her cover, she spends three months in prison for fraud. She successfully fools everyone around her. Only those closest to the case have any idea of what she is up to.
Her motivation is to fund clinical healthcare for her sister’s child, who is the greatest love of her life.
As April builds trust from her target, Dylan Rider, she also builds unexpected deep sexual feelings for him. She assures her masters that she will not sleep with him, but she can’t help herself. However, being the devious woman that she is, she maintains total control over how and, more importantly, when. Dylan is a man who is used to being in charge of every situation. Even when April has him dangling on a string, he still thinks that he is the one who is calling the shots.
The sex scenes are very well described and highly arousing. They are certainly not candidates for the annual bad sex awards.
Dylan’s autistic son adds further complications. He has no relationship with his father, but April somehow manages to gain his trust. Well, almost.
I love the way that the characters are developed through the book. And, just when you think you know what is going to happen next, something completely different happens.
There is a Grisham-esque ending, so watch out for that.
This is a super story with lots of twists and turns. I highly recommend it.
