Eve Webber, the gorgeous and savvy owner of Eve Candy, may beling to the wrong side of the tracks. But she is determined to run a clean business and fix up the East Side. But her new hire seems to have a knack of making her temperature rise higher than ever before. The potential of mixing business with pleasure has never been more tempting.

Detective Matt Dorchester has one job in this new undercover assignment: Keep Eve Webber safe. At any cost. He just never expected to fall for the sexiest bar owner. And he never expected his love can be the price that has to be paid to keep her safe.


I think once I kept the book down, I am finally able to pace myself and take a breath. What a book!! Absolutely brilliant style of narration; the easy blended perfectly with the slow build-up of the plot that synchronised with the raw passion and chemistry of the lead characters. The little of hint of danger definitely spiced the whole story for me.

The lead characters and strong and extremely appealing and will make you want to dip into the whole alpha male charisma. The setting and plot complemented wach other, and the same can be said about the cover image and the title.

My opinion: What an absolute page turner!! Quick read, yes, but definitely worth it.

My rating: 4 out of 5
