Model Olivia Winters comes home to escape her job in New York City, and finds herself compelled to investigate the suspicious suicide of a former high school classmate. She enlists the help of private investigator Max Lyon, an ex-detective from a troubled family. Posing as husband and wife, the pair uncovers a grisly trail of murder, and the danger propels them into each other’s arms.
With a murderer on the loose, Max and Olivia realize they’re in too deep, too late. They’re getting close to the truth—and to each other’s secrets.
This was a murder mystery that kept you flipping the pages. I immediately liked Olivia and Max which made the intense story all the better. Of course the Rockfort Security group was already a series I liked, this book was the best. I had to finish it all in one sitting. My only complaints would be that it is hard to believe a group of people could keep their mouths shut that long and I would have liked more heat in the romance part. But those two things didn’t keep me from turning those pages.

Olivia reached for Max, pulling him to her, feeling his resistance and knowing when he finally gave up fighting what he wanted. What they both wanted.
She cupped the back of his head and brought his mouth to hers in a kiss she didn’t even pretend was part of reassurance. It was all heat and fury and relief that both of them had come through the incident all right.
He made a sound deep in his throat. A sound of surrender, she decided, as the kiss changed its focus. She had been the aggressor to start with. Now he took that role, and if she had been surer of him, she would have thought that he was staking his claim on her.
He gathered her close, his hands fumbling for the belt of the robe, opening the tie and letting the belt ends drop to the side before he swept the edges of the garment out of the way.
