Rating: 5 Stars
Nikki Holden is an investigative reporter on the trail of a major story. Smart, sexy, and a survivor, Nikki is in deep trying to get an interview with a superstar jai alai player by using his mistress, Marcy. But Nikki is after much more than a simple interview. Then Roman Cantrell appears on the scene. Tall, dark and handsome, Roman is a private investigator looking for Marcy, who Nikki is painstaking keeping under wraps until she gets the information she needs for her story.
From the moment Nikki and Roman meet, the game is on with one surprising twist after another. I fell in love with Nikki from the beginning. Quick-witted and intelligent, she is no meek damsel in distress. Roman is her perfect match. Immediately, you can feel the attraction between the two.
The action-filled mystery with witty dialogue makes for a wonderful read. Miss Chase has done an excellent job of building up the suspense as the mystery deepens. I found myself reading late into the night until I finished it. I highly recommend the book for any romantic suspense reader. This is the first book in the Roman Cantrell-Nikki Holden Mystery series. I am anxiously anticipating the next book in the series.
One other thing I would like to mention. At the end of the book, Miss Chase included a small piece on the story behind the story. I have always been a fan of Elaine Raco Chase’s books. So, I found this information extremely interesting. I am happy that she was able to overcome her own obstacles and introduce Nikki and Roman into my world.
