Gabe won’t let Scarlett Bishop come between him and his goal of taking down Miami’s newest serial k...more
I enjoyed the premise of this book. I was intrigued with the male hero being a gigolo and his date being his ex-girlfriend. I was looking forward to this being a fun and interesting read.
Suzanne Rock did a nice job of setting up the story, giving the back-story and getting the two of them back together again. Unfortunately, she did confuse me a few times throughout the story and I had some small problems with the flow of the book.
Scarlett was a bit of a mess. She was feisty and determin ...more
This was a little different than I was expecting from the blurb. I enjoyed it, but I am not sure if I was totally on board with the idea that someone would order an escort, who happened to be an ex, to accompany her to a major event. I think, for me, I would like to believe that a woman can be successful even if she doesn't have a date. That said, it did work for the plot of the book and it was only their initial meeting that was a result of ...more
Nice romantic suspense read. It's steamy, s ...more
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley and chose to review it
Scarlett Bishop needs a date, so she decides to hire a high-end escort. She knows she should keep their date strictly professional, but when Gabriel Ferreira is the man escorting her, how can she possibly not think about giving in and accepting the pleasure he could give her? Because it's not as if they don't already know each other since they used to be High School sweethearts until Gabriel broke things off between them. However, when Scarlett discovers Gabriel is more than he seems, will they ...more

I really enjoy a romance but love when the book includes a bit of mystery, intrigue, and drama! There were so many connections that Gabe did not see while he was investigating his case. I loved at the end you could see the whole picture and how the “dots” connected.
Second chance romances are fun to read and this one kept me reading it straight through until I finished. The action flowed well, and it was hard to put the book down! Gabe and Scarlett w ...more

We meet Scarlett as she's in a lurch looking for a date to an important event. Insert Gabe, the escort whom happens to be undercover cop trying to solve a murder case. What could possibly go wrong?
The story has some pacing issues early on, but seemed to get on track. Scarlett was a little too "I'm not going to take it" whiny for me. Gabe came across as the guy trying to do the right thing. And the steamy scenes Is rate as a 4 out of 5, they escalated ...more
Very unique plot. I have never read a who-dun-it quite like this. And I read ALOT, so new and unique are something special.
This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
Male escorts and serial killers.
This book was a romantic story of an undercover cop playing the role if a male escort to catch a serial killer targeting male escort. While the storyline was interesting, I wasn't really too pleased with this story. Based on the cover I was expecting Special Agent Gabriel Ferreira to be ALL alpha male but sadly he wasn't. The conversation between Gabriel and his old high school sweeth ...more
Very catchy and intriguing beginning. Then I felt like I was in the middle of a game of clue wondering who done it while I was hiding out in the library. A good twist keeps the book interesting while there are intermissions for lots of "catching up" between Gabe and Scarlett.
Interesting mystery taking a big turn on the murder plot and enjoyed the ending.
