<–*click on cover for amazon link*
Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren’t going quite as well as she’d hoped. She’s a runner for a high-powered law firm in town, not the most prestigious of positions, but it and her part-time bartender gig at least pays the bills. And one of the senior partners is a dreamboat in that obscenely rich, disturbingly good looking, slightly snobbish sort of way.
She was quite happy ogling him from afar, before she did a mortifying face plant in his lap during a meeting. After that…well…she was more about the avoiding. Mature, no. More likely to assure she keeps her job, yes.
She’s made some friends in the few months she’s been in Indy. One of those friends is her neighbor Sheila, though Kathleen can’t say she’s completely comfortable with Sheila’s job choice as a high-dollar escort.
It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood.
Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend. It’s the opening gambit in a web of murder, deceit, conspiracy, and fraud that stretches to the law firm for which Kathleen works. Maybe to the very office that Blane Kirk commands.
And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.
Okay so I honestly wasn’t in a hurry to read this one because even though they say to not judge a book by its cover I did with this one. I had hear that it was a good read but I didn’t read the blurb and just thought because of the numbers on the cover that it was going to be syfi-ish so I was not in a hurry to get to it. I then got an email to participate in a blog tour for the 3rd book coming out and decided to participate in it and so I figured if I was going to read the 3rd book I should probably read the first two. I am happy to say that I am glad that I did. It was such a good book full of suspense and two hot men! I mean how can you really go wrong with that? I love the damsel in distress aspect of it also.
And well what can I say yes Blane is HOT and well who wouldn’t think so? But when she first actually meets the guy well how much more of a HELLO can ya get then the one she gave him?
“The papers I had in my hand went flying and I landed face first in Blane’s lap, like an overeager dog sniffing hello.”
It didn’t take long before we got to meet Kade though either.. and let me say he puts a little spin on things. There is something about him that Kathleen is drawn to and well I wonder what it is? Girls always like the bad boys!
There is so much happening in this book, her friend and neighbor gets murdered and who else helps her but Blane. He is so sweet and caring, you see where things are going and you hope that they get there soon because there is a bit of a build up, but it is good!
Action, murder, suspense, secrets… it all makes for a good book! There is some fun banter that will make you giggle also.
“I was annoyed to realize he was barely breathing hard. I was huffing and wheezing like a water buffalo scaling Mount Everst.”
Yes so for anyone who has tried to run with someone who does it that is EXACTLY what it is like so this made me laugh. The banter between Kade and Kathleen cracks me up… the sexual tension well that is THE BEST! so for those who are wondering what team I am on well don’t need much to figure that one out do you??
Team Kade all the way! 🙂
It has been a while since I have read one like this and usually I am not for suspense but I got into it with this book! I got lost in everything that was going on it was so good that when I was done I told my husband this one would SO be a good movie!
After reading I did a search for the books and came across an interview that a blog did with Blane. The blog Cocktails and Books…you can go and read that interview posted on Tiffany’s website —> HERE
