"When Tristan Riley drags Lillian Maddox onto the dance floor at Teplo, he intends only to protect his cover… at least that's what he tells himself. But the lovely Lillian would tempt a saint, and Tristan is far from a gentleman. Beneath the bright lights of the Vetrov family's dangerous club, the weary DEA agent finds himself captivated by the ballerina, coaxing them both into a reckless, erotic encounter.

But Tristan isn't prepared for the intense connection between him and Lillian, or for the fallout of their tryst. In a matter of days, their lives careen wildly off course, catapulting them both into a deadly game of hide and seek with the Vetrov family and one of Mexico's deadliest drug cartels.

Trying to keep his hands to himself while working alongside Lillian to stop Anton Vetrov's deadly new drug proves almost impossible for Tristan, but what choice does he have when being with her might get her killed? He should know: his entire family was murdered by people just like Anton.

When the stakes are raised and innocent lives are lost, will Tristan be able to let go of the guilt, or will he destroy his chance at happiness with Lillian before it ever truly begins?"

My Review:
First, the book is written in third person POV. It focused on Tristan and Lillian. I thought it was written beautifully, but it could have been better if it was written in 1st person POV. Don't get me wrong, I thought the story was detailed and strong. In my opinion though, it was written in such a way that a lot of times, you'd read a certain line where it would've been better off read from a character's mind [him/herself thinking out loud to read] than off of a 3rd person as the narrator.

Second, the characters were well written. I thought each character had a solid background that is consistent with all their actions throughout the story. I thought that they were likable and contained a certain personality that compliments one another. I thought Tristan's personality complimented Lillian's because of their similarities when it comes to determination, courage, as well as fear. They somehow also compliment each other because of the differences in background. One was a DEA agent, while one was a disabled ballerina. I thought one had this outward strength while one was strong inside.

Third, I thought the story was quite interesting. I've enjoyed the pace from the start till the middle of the story. I thought around 3/4 of the way it was a little stretched. The events in the story were almost halted because it focused on the two main characters. I keep waiting for the day something happens because they were so caught up in this certain problem in the story, but I keep getting disappointed after having to read another sexual scene after the other. I thought maybe the author wanted to focus on the relationship of the two main characters. It was fine to do so, but the story dragged on without much progress.

Overall, I think the book deserves more credit, because the story really did entertain me. I thought it was a good read, but I would have to wait for the next part of the story in the next book. The main problems in the story were left hanging for the next book to answer it. The author was able to capture my attention because of the story. I was excited for a lot of action to happen, which did not happen yet, though I have much hope for the next book. I am very excited to read about how they'll solve their current problem and how much trouble and worry they'll place in my heart because of Tristan and Lillian.

I would have to give the book 3.5 Stars!

Thanks for reading <3 nbsp="" p="">-J
