In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line–between seductive passion and scandalous murder… Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she’s seen it all–and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she’s going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire–and a suspect in Eve’s murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it’s up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about–except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
This futuristic police procedural is in the style of TV Shows like Bones, Castle and Law & Order. Lt. Eve Dallas is a character who is brash and utterly amazing. I love her so much. When she comes across Roarke in the process of an investigation her plain police living is about to take a serious about turn. The futuristic elements of this novel were intriguing. A New York with some serious upgrades. Roarke as a character is charming and is infatuated with Eve. His sweet talk not to mention Irish accent is to die for. Mavis is Eve’s best friend and quite a character in her own right. As an exotic singer with a flamboyant personality Mavis plays off of Eve well. Overall, this police procedural series is just getting started and I am looking forward to not only more interesting deaths for Eve in the Homicide squad, but more intimate moments with Roarke and fun times with Mavis.
Keep Calm and Read On,
