“Adult romance interlaced with criminal suspense”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Trypsin
This is an adult story of romance interlaced with a strong layer of thrilling criminal suspense. Athletic All American Jack, and smart cookie Catlyn were high school friends until an incident breaks trust and sends them their separate ways. Shoot forward 25 years and Jack is Chief of Detectives working on a serial killer case. When the FBI become involved, he is reunited with Catlyn. Can they forget their past and solve the crime before them? The story is well conceived with good twists and turns. The author’s writing style is easy to follow. There are a number of sex scenes and although they are well written, a few less would have allowed the story to move on more quickly. After the first one or two you get a picture of Jack and Catlyn as lovers. The plot kept me turning the pages and I’m happy to recommend.
