Elite investigator Zoe Harrington isn't about to be fooled twice. She knows all the tempting by-any-means-necessary games FBI agent Carver Banks will use to close a case. So when he needs her help with a missing persons case, she's happy to charge him double the fee—and keep his sizzling moves at arm’s length. But when the search strikes too close to home, Zoe finds the passion between them reigniting past the danger point . . .
Carver doesn't want to deceive Zoe again. He's never stopped wanting the sexy private detective who can match him play for passionate play. But she's at the top of a hit list. And he'll do whatever it takes to keep her out of harm’s way—until Zoe uncovers his true agenda. Now, how can he prove his love for her is real? And with time running out, will their one chance to survive mean losing each other forever?
When investigator Zoe Harrington is asked by FBI Agent Carver Banks to assist him with a missing person case, her radar goes up because she and Banks have a past, a past better left behind at least that is what she keeps telling herself.
FBI Agent Carver Banks wants nothing more from Zoe but to keep her safe after receiving some information there is a hit out on her. At least that is what he keeps telling himself. Will the feelings that keep erupting between them, keep them safe not only from whoever has a hit out on Zoe but from each other?
This was an action-packed suspense-filled romance story that I really enjoyed. From the first page, I was hooked and it held my attention until the last page. I really enjoy the way Cheris Hodges tells a story. She has you rooting for both characters throughout and was I very satisfied with the outcome. The writing is tight and fans of her work will not be disappointed.
Don’t miss out on the Rumor series and if you are starting with this one, Deadly Rumors, make sure to go and read all the rest! I look forward to other books by this author.
