Scandal could not touch the Kendall family--not with the unsolved Christmas Eve murders looming over their heads. So when eldest son Devin was caught in a compromising situation with his executive assistant, he decided to turn tabloid news in his favor. If Jolie Carson posed as his fiancee, the press would leave him alone and he could conduct his own investigation.

I almost hate to admit that I usually enjoy these Harlequin Intrigue romances. That said, this one hits most of my pet peeves.
The first peeve: I am very, very tired of heroines who toil away in silence for years working for the boss they secretly love.
In this one, Jolie has worked for Devin as his executive assistant for six years. There is never a hint of impropriety between them until the evening Jolie takes a report and dinner to Devin's condo WITH HER HAIR DOWN (peeve number two - previous

This is a follow up book, from Detective Daddy by Mallory Kane. Both books were really good.
The Kendall family is a close bunch. Their parents were murdered when they were little. In the book Detective daddy we found out Ash grew up to be a cop. Their parent’s murder was never solved. With every case that Ash solves, he knows he is helping other families. Natalie is the youngest. Devin, and Ash are both very protective big brothers.
Detective Daddy ended with the parent’s murder case being re-o

I read this book last night, and even after having a whole night to process it I still don't know how I feel. And I say "to process it" as in to think how I would rate it, not because it was hard to take in, whatsoever.

I find myself in a bad book-situation this year and I can't seem to help it, so among all the bad books I've been reading this year it gets a pass. But just barely.

It was mostly a meh book for me. The suspense was there but I just couldn't quite get into it. The characters didn't

I think I got this book for free or on sale quite a while ago. It sat on my Kindle forever and i finally decided to read it since it was relatively short. Well, let me tell you, since the writing was so laughable I did quite a lot of skimming it was even shorter than I had figured. The characters were just awful--they were not developed well and came across very flat. Outside of Devin being a CEO with siblings he's weirdly overbearing with and Jolie being his executive assistant, I know nothing ...more

Although it was a fast paced book, I found myself annoyed at times. It held the premise of romance, suspense and mystery, but it wasn't enough. It was about an overbearing CEO of a company and his mousy executive assistant, which to put it straight, he did treat her as a secretary. Jolie who, by her words, loved him from the first time she met him, but yet still pined away for him even when he didn't notice her in a sexual way. She wears the suits that cover her body and her hair tight in buns, ...more

I didn't really care for the male lead and thought the mystery was far-fetched.
