Somebody is killing young boys in the neighborhood and its homicide Detective Mellina August’s responsibility to figure out who. She’s the new kid in the precinct and not everybody’s happy about her landing this case, but that won’t stop her from solving it. All she needs is a good partner and she’s golden.
Detective Jayson Rivers is an asset to the gang unit, but when the murders start encroaching on his territory, he agrees to partner up with Mellina to help get this case solved. Although his hands are full with his daughter at home, it doesn’t mean he can keep them off of Mellina. Long days and late nights keep these too in close proximity, fanning flames of lust that just won’t die down. Can they catch the murderer in time, and keep their hearts in tact?
This was one of the best books I’ve read by this author. Ashley Nicole did a heck of a job with this story. I loved the hero, the heroine, and baby Laiyah. The people who were hating on the little kids in one of this authors previous stories needed to get a real life. Baby Laiyah stole my heart with her sweet little face and antics.
The premise for the story was a suspense and romantic comedy. Detective’s Jayson and Mellina were paired on a case to stop a serial killer preying on young men in the city. The backstory with Junie and other character’s added to the drama, and the romantic part dealt with Jayson and Mellina feeling one another while also trying to keep their attraction off the front pages. Mellina’s friend Junie was about as crazy as they come. I could never guess what she was going to say. I laughed so hard at nearly everything she said.
The build up in the story with the murder spree was taxing, and the discover of who done it… The writing here was nicely done. The author paid close attention to details and plot twists to give readers just enough drama to whet ones appetites. Jayson was the father of the year in my book with the love and sweetness he bestowed on his only little baby girl. The story emitted a myriad of feelings and excitement a good suspense story should convey. Junie added so much fun to the story… I could hardly keep from laughing out loud with every chapter she appeared. And happily once Mellina and Jayson consummated their relationship, the sex was off the chain hotness. The chemistry between them was sizzling hot. This story read like a dramatic movie I would love to see on the big screens..
Overall, this story was funny, fun, sexy, sweet and filled with goodness.. Get your book now. I rarely reread a book so quickly after the first read. But…. This book had me doing a double take within three days of the first read. Don’t take my word for it, try it and see for yourselves. I’m sure you’ll love it.. I’m Out Guys!
