Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from Enticing Journey Book Promotions, the publisher, and the author.

After a shoulder injury ends her respectable career as a police officer, Mak also known as Maddison Abigail Kinloch turns to the seedy world of private investigations by default. Now her job consists of cheating douchebags and baby daddies dodging child support. Things can’t get much worse.
Moon controls Arizona’s largest crime syndicate. His bronze skin and blue eyes leave a girl breathless even when that girl knows he’s bad news. Moon doesn’t give a flying fig what Mac thinks; he wants her—ex-cop, bad attitude, and all.
How does she resist the dark side when her body craves Moon’s searing touch? Things only get hotter in Phoenix when Mak finds herself in a deadly situation and must turn to Moon for help.
He’ll help but there’s a price. Heat turns to sizzle and hearts combust when Mak and Moon find themselves wanting more than a few hot nights beneath cool sheets.
Madison “Mak” Kinlock’s job is catching people. It’s that job that gets her into a real pickle. She may be a strong woman but at least she knows when to ask for help. Catch Xavier Moon is a man who has eyes and ears everywhere. He’s also a man who knows what he wants no matter that it’s good for him or not.
Our author has created a minor character that even though we don’t see him very long he made me smile. As I continued to read, I came upon a name that I wasn’t expecting. There’s a woman that I know and it surprised me when her name popped up. Then it had me wondering if she is actually listed in this author’s story. How cool is it to see someone you know as a possible character. The next minute the author had me laughing as she reveals the woman’s profession.
It’s a story that had me question how many women, given the opportunity, get involved with a man like Moon – especially if you are in the same position that Mak is. Would you look past your beliefs to go out with someone? Or would you give them the benefit of the doubt? Do you think that your love would change them? What would you do if you found that they hadn’t changed at all? And will you allow anything to get in the way of you being together?
I was impressed that the author didn’t let the danger in the storyline overtake the plot. If it did it might change the reading experience. Instead she has just the right combination that will keep your attention. And by the time you finish this story, you may find that some of the questions above get answered. It also left me looking forward to the next book in the series coming out this summer.
