Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In more than ten years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and a suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.(

I picked this book up because My boss from Lori’s recommended the series too me MANY years ago – I’m just rereading cause I love to do that.

What I liked the Most? Mavis – She is abso my TTF (Tippy Top Favorite) character EVER!

What I liked the Least? With this 1st installment – there was a lot of world building – it can be a bit slow at times, but no real complaint.

Review:This book is a dark, sexy thriller filled with passion, tension, and an awesome cast of characters - Nora Roberts (JD Robb’s real name) gets right to business with this first installment – murder. It’s NYC in 2058 and Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets called to a grizzly crime scene – a prostitute (known as a “licensed companion” or “LC”) has been gunned down in her own apartment, and she’s not just any LC, but the granddaughter of a U.S. Senator on the fast track to Presidency. The killer has promised 5 more murders.

This story is very character driven, you have:
  • Eve, by-the-book officer with a strong moral compass, and she’s extremely passionate and capable in her duties to protect and serve
  • Roarke, the sexy and mysterious Irish tycoon, wealthier than any one else in the known world
  • Mavis, Eve’s best friend – quirky and extremely entertaining
Eve is tough and independent but she’s under all that flash she’s damaged, and Roarke well he wants to be the man to break down her walls.

OMG, this book was satisfying – from start to finish.

Recommended to: Everyone who likes a good mystery with a developing story

Best Quote: There might be a God. She hadn't completely ruled such things out. And if there were, she thought, It must have enjoyed a good laugh over Its creations' useless rituals and passages.
