Charlotte Caissie is a homicide detective with the New Orleans Police Department. She has been trying to bring down the biggest crime boss in New Orleans, Jimmy Legere, for a very long time. She knows Jimmy was behind the murder of her father. What she never counted on was how she is coming to feel for Max.

Max Savoie is the right hand man of Jimmy. Max is completely loyal to Jimmy since Jimmy rescued him from the swamps as a child. Max has also always been unemotional and completely focused on whatever he does. When Max first sets eyes on Charlotte his loyalties are tested. She has awakened his emotions and things are going be getting very complicated very quickly.

Now with their attraction to each other testing their loyalties Max and Charlotte are going to have to find a way to work through everything or else it just might mean a death sentence for them both. They are going to have to tread carefully if they are going to survive what is coming their way and if they are going to have a chance at what they both want. Both their worlds are about to be turned upside down and only time will tell if they will make it through all that is headed their way.

This is a story that will keep you enthralled in the storyline until the very end. It is also the first book in a continuing trilogy involving the main characters in all three books. So the reader will have to keep in mind that some of the story lines will not be completely finished in the first book. This is one book that will have the reader eagerly awaiting the next book in the trilogy. The characters are well developed and complicated and very believable. It is interesting to see how they overcome the obstacles in their paths to get to what they truly want in their lives. The secondary characters also help move the story line along quickly and make the story much more engrossing.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
