About The Book:
The romance between LA psychologist Christina McMullen and Lieutenant Jack Rivera is finally sizzling...until Chrissy catches the lieutenant in a compromising position. Still, when a vicious criminal from their past is released from prison, Rivera is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Chrissy safe--but does that include murder?
Despite sound advice from her best friend, Brainy Laney Butterfield, Chrissy is determined to clear Rivera's name. But first she'll have to tango with a quintet of sexy suitors and her own current beau, Doctor...what was his name again? And when Chrissy is attacked, the stakes become more dangerous than ever, for she's about to pop the lid on the most lucrative criminal enterprise in LA--and to the surprise of this shrink, more than one deep, dark secret is about to become uncorked.
I have a lot of respect for Author Lois Greiman's ability to write a tension filled story that has a big sprinkling of humor, some of it a little on the crude side, but most of it hit's right-on and is amusing. Keeping up with all the characters that pop in and out of this series keeps the reader on his/her toes. Chrissy and Jack are two life-crossed lovers that can't seem to get it right, but then, that's what keeps the story going. To be honest, most of their problems are not of there making, but the choices they make along the way keeps the reader guessing what the next screw-up will be. The cover is eye-catching and sets the stage for this story.
One disappointing aspect of this book was the excessive use of the Four-Letter-Vocabulary. Vulgar language, in my opinion, never facilitates characterization.
