Stacey Espino and Sam Crescent outdid themselves with the latest in their fabulous series with this adventurous romance. I loved watching Shadow trying to keep his aloofness when his nosy neighbor lures him in to her life. He quickly falls without seeming to notice it before it’s too late and I couldn’t wait to see his next reaction. Riley won me over for life the moment she mentioned Nancy Drew. She was so used to taking care of herself that it was interesting to see her handling some support. Shadow and Riley are absolutely perfect for one another. They have similar pasts and it makes for a deep understanding of their personalities. This story was an explosive combination of action and emotion and I was sad to see it come to an end as I just couldn’t get enough of this couple or the other Kings of Killers. I’m actually holding my breath waiting for the next in this series as I am continually impressed with where these authors take me with every story. Trust me, you need to read this book.
