Laila and Zeke were a super sleuthed couple working a special ops case for McAllister Security. By the way, don’t let me forget to mention the connection between Zeke and Laila? Laila and Zeke were part of the bridal party of Vicki and Dex. Reader’s may recall the first story’s introduction of these two hotties in Reckless Love The daring conclusion in book one, lead to this fabulous story. Yes, I was ready for Swagalicious #1 Dex, and Swagalicious #2 Zeke, to grace the story with fineness…
The cover for this book amped my excitement twofold. I was prepared for a sexy hot and sassy story, just based on the cover. This author has a way of bringing the drama and excitement rolled into one package. This was a nicely wrapped package. The story focused on the case Zeke and Laila completed, and the fallout from that assignment. Laila became the target of an unknown assailant in a plot to ruin her reputation. Zeke and Dex had to work as a team to solve the mystery surrounding her bosses death and discover reasons why Laila was singled out as the only suspect. The actual killer made it appear as though Laila had acted alone in eliminating her boss. The drama and mystery in this offering were well above normal prowess and premise for a regular love story. There isn’t anything regular or normal about a Te` Russ story. Readers now expect a higher level of quality storytelling. It’s her fault… Maybe she should have dropped a few crappy stories, and then we might be more forgiving. Our expectations were exceeded yet again with this marvelous mystery.
Laila and Zeke took us on a nice adventure, and along the way, they each decided it was okay to be in a relationship together. It was evident from the previous book, Zeke had a strong attraction to Laila, and his feelings were requited by Laila. It took a short while for them to arrive at the place they landed, but the journey was worth the trip. I would have liked a little more snuggling and lip-locking, but I’m really not complaining.
Vicki and Dex were mentioned and came along for the ride in this installment. It was nice to see they were getting along well, after a rocky start in their relationship. The thing I’ve noticed with this author is the way women are portrayed in her books. The best adjective to describe a Te` woman would be eloquent, accomplished and resourceful. The men in a Te` story are best described as Alpha, hot, uber-intelligent, and without question- dedicated to the woman, they’ve chosen as their One. This was another great read by this author. Happy reading. My rating 4.5 Stars.
