My emotions- I enjoyed the suspense and was intrigued to figure out how Riley would solve her problem.
Finn is a fine hottie agent and a great book boyfriend. Ladies, beware.
Even though the main character was a strong, independent woman, sometimes I felt the author had her make unrealistic choices in order to further the plot/excitement.
When Riley Cowan finds her estranged husband dead in his home, she’s sure it’s no coincidence. The police rule it a suicide, but Riley thinks someone’s out for blood—specifically someone her father-in-law ripped off in one of the biggest financial fraud cases of all time. She suspects that someone is trying to send a message: Tell me where the money is, or everyone you care about will die.
Riley’s in-laws might be billionaires, but she’s afraid that not even their dirty money can protect her from an irate investor who will stop at nothing to get his hands on his misappropriated cash. Enter Finn Bradley, Philly-based FBI agent and Riley’s love interest from way back when. Finn agrees to help Riley, and the two reignite sparks they both thought were extinguished long ago. But can they discover the killer’s identity in time, before he resurfaces—and strikes again?
Edge-of-my-seat excitement and suspense with danger around the corner.
What I’d change-
The heroine was referred to as a “thing” a few times which bugged me. I also wanted the climatic action scene to be more powerful. It flew by too quickly.
The word “grim” was used a million times.
The sensual scenes were great, but the erotic feelings during danger sometimes just didn’t seem like the best timing
