He's an ex-cop. She's an ex-wife. And they're both out for revenge on the same man....
When pampered former cheerleader Feenie Malone takes a job writing fluff pieces for her South Texas paper, she has no idea she's about to stumble into a juicy news story that could launch her career -- if it doesn't get her killed first. Almost as soon as she breaks out her press pass, she crosses paths with Marco Juarez, the macho PI obsessed with solving his sister's murder. The information he has might be the perfect lead -- but his dangerously sexy looks could be a deadly distraction.
Juarez has zero patience for reporters, especially mouthy blond ones. But with the evidence pointing to Feenie's ex-husband, Marco thinks she could be useful. Confident he can keep her on a tight leash, he lets her in on his investigation. He quickly discovers he's underestimated his new partner, as well as the danger they both face. Now he must protect her -- to the very last breath....

I've recently discovered Laura Griffin and I'm happy I did. I read a couple of her recent books first.
Marco and Feenie are believable, entertaining, and endearing characters. Ms. Griffin did a good job of developing the relationship between the two main characters. No, there's not a lot of sex in this book, but, I found it refreshing for a change. Feenie and Marco actually got to know a lot about each other before jumping into bed. Not to say, there weren't some secrets between the two of them.
Marco is an alpha male, while Feenie is spunky and smart. For a mystery there's great humor in the story, along with danger. I just really enjoy Laura Griffin's characters and writing style. Her books really hold my interest.
I expected to not be that impressed by this book simply because of it's age. I thought it would feel dated, however, I enjoyed it. But it was another case of enjoying the romance aspect way more than the plot. Marco was pretty hot and the chemistry between he and Feenie was steamy, however the sex scenes were pretty tame and could have used some work. But as a couple, they made me laugh which is always a plus. The plot was OK, but it was a bit far-fetched to think she could be married for 5 years and not suspect anything. But that's fiction for you! Not sure how the follow-up book will be featuring McAllister and Celie. He came off rather shallow and jerk-like in this book, so we'll see, but I would recommend this one to fans of romantic-suspense.
