You have a former military man who now owns and runs multiple casinos with a tortured past. He has everything that money can buy but happiness. To have happiness you have to trust and Drake Archer trusts a very select few people but never a woman. He learned that lesson the hard way a long time ago.
Jasmine Bennett is a thief, or is she? She’s on the run from a so called bounty hunter while she’s in pursuit of Drake for information about his business dealings. She herself trusts very few people. She’s always had to pretty much rely on herself, even from a young age. Her own past is interwoven with Drake that leaves her vulnerable and in turmoil.
From the moment she crooks her finger at Drake the first time to the second time she does it, it’s non-stop action. I couldn’t hardly put it down. I even stayed up late to read it. Cynthia Eden, I just want to kiss you and hug you so tight. You had my heart racing with the suspense, fanning myself during the love scenes and my eyes misting at the emotional parts. That’s not just good romantic suspense but that’s a good novel.
In closing, a couple of my favorite lines:
The memory of being in Drake’s bed was too strong. I could still feel him on my skin.
She tasted just like he remembered. Like every dream he’d ever had. Like everything he ever wanted but didn’t deserve.
