I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
It’s a while since I’ve read a romance in this category, and now I’m wondering why, as it’s the perfect blend of friendship, intrigue, passion and romance. It starts with a dramatic altercation, and the chemistry intensifies from then on. With passionate interludes and moments of regret, this story takes the reader on an emotional rollercoaster.
Dominic’s outward playboy persona masks his role in helping victims of domestic abuse and violence. Meredith, a successful investigative journalist, thinks Dominic’s nightclub is a front for trafficking. She doesn’t want to believe her best friend’s brother is involved, so she confronts him. His denials lack explanations, but she can’t resist the intense attraction between them. Her desire is evident, but she needs the truth, if she is to follow, her heart.
Set against a background of danger, intrigue and secrets, is an intense relationship. Their emotional commitment follows as Dominic’s secret life unfolds.
