In this electrifying novel from New York Times bestselling author Elisabeth Naughton, love can be a risk when it's explored in such dark places...
All his siblings have moved on from their troubling pasts, but Rusty McClane can't leave his behind. Not even when his freedom is in jeopardy.
Legal investigator Harper Blake can sense a bad boy. She's drawn to them--like she is to her mysterious and brooding new client. The police believe that Rusty is involved with the case of a missing underage girl. Harper's job is to find evidence to defend him. But is her sexy suspect a predator...or something else?
If Rusty is guilty of anything, it's of stirring something primitive in Harper. The closer they get, the harder it is to believe the worst of him.
But in an underworld filled with sex trafficking, kidnapping, and murder, Harper will need to be cautious about whom she trusts. Because Rusty isn't the only one with secrets.
The book is filled with interesting characters, misdirections, and red herrings, which leads to a suspense filled ride. It is the story of the oldest of the McClane siblings Rusty, and centers around his after dark activities into the underbelly of Portland Oregon. As always Naughton writes one hell off a thrill ride, but for me the romance was lacking. It’s still a good suspense, but it truly didn’t hit all cylinders in the character development of the romantic relationship aspect of the story.
Another problem with the book is that it has both plot and continuity errors which regretfully made me deduct stars from this taunt thriller.
