Passion and danger collide in the latest contemporary romance featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.

When Drew Lawless discovers a fatal flaw in his plan to avenge his parents’ deaths, he turns to the one woman he promised he wouldn't touch. He offers her a deal, one that will bring her into his investigation, his life, and his bed.

Investigative reporter Shelby Gates never dreamed how twisted the case would become—or how fascinated she would be with Drew. Every day they spend together binds them. And every night brings her closer to realizing he might be the man for her.

As Drew's feelings for Shelby grow, so does the danger. From the streets of Dallas to Austin’s high-tech business world, Drew and Shelby play a game begun twenty years before—a game they will win, or die trying.

WOW! Just WOW! This is one of the very few books that left me speechless when I finished it. Suspense! OMG this book had me on the edge of my seat and I did not want to adult. Note to self, next time call in or take the day off. I was trying to work and all I could think of was what was going on where I had left off, what happens next, how is this going to end, it was CRAZY. So by all of that I guess you can tell that I loved this book.

This book cannot be read as a standalone, it MUST be read as part of the series. Drew is the oldest of the Lawless siblings and during the first book I thought, what an ass. But, he grew on me. He needed just the right woman to ground him, in comes Shelby. Shelby is an investigative reporter that knows there is more going on to this story than meets the eye. Drew starts off with a contract to keep her near him. Mistake! But, not going there because hey no spoilers.  Now let’s talk about twist, oh holy HELL! I thought there couldn’t be any bigger bomb dropped than finding out in the last book that Iris is still alive, I was wrong. Never saw the twist coming and oh it is a biggie…. wait for it.

As the final book of the series there is a HEA.  The good thing is everything is resolved. The bad thing is everything is resolved.
