Private Investigator, Gabriel Silver is healing from a deadly loss, burying himself in work and avoiding relationships of any kind. When he agrees to help a friend who's tangled up with drug dealers he has no idea the job will change his life.
Samantha Connor is recovering from a terrible relationship. She's on the prowl for a hot hook-up, with no strings attached. When she meets Gabriel, she thinks she's found the perfect man to fulfill her deepest yearnings. But Gabriel turns out to be more than meets the eye.
Soon, she's knee-deep in his latest case and on the run with Gabriel and her sexy friend Kendra. As they plot to trap the drug dealers, Samantha and Gabriel begin a thrilling game of cat and mouse. With growing feelings, danger at every turn and seduction on the table, anything can happen. When Samantha tries to help her friend and her sexy new guy, she finds herself in too deep.
Can two star-crossed lovers untangle from their shattered pasts long enough to find true love, or is Gabriel Silver about to find out that history repeats itself, and lose everything he ever cared about?
Warnings: This title contains erotic situations, graphic language, a steamy threesome and a hot girl on girl scene, satisfying hidden desires. It is however a MF erotic romance.
Samantha is recently single, after freeing herself from a rubbish and unfulfilling relationship. All she's looking for is some no-strings, sexy fun times! Which is exactly what Gabriel Silver promises to deliver. What Samantha doesn't realise is that Gabriel's no ordinary, delicious barman but is a private investigator. He got involved in, her friend, Kendra's club so that he could keep an eye on Kendra for a friend.
Soon, Gabriel, Samantha and Kendra are all on the run from some mobster-types Kendra's gotten mixed up with. As the three spend more time together, desire and danger are running at super high levels.
You can definitely relate to Samantha, she's been an awful relationship with a jerk for too long. She's craving crazy hot sex with no strings, the last thing she wants is another relationship. Her new single status gives her the freedom to indulge in her attraction to her friend, Kendra and to Gabriel. She's instantly drawn to him, and their relationship develops naturally from pure lust to something much deeper and stronger.
I'd have liked to see a bit more development with Samantha, because whilst I knew how she felt sexually, you don't know much about who she actually is. I just would have liked a bit more background on her, that wasn't related to her ex.
Gabriel is pretty much a perfect package- handsome, rich, protective, fierce, caring and fantabulous in bed! There's more to him though, and he has some definite issues from the death of someone very close to him.
This is a seriously steamy book! I'll admit that F/F and menage situations aren't my usual cup of tea, but it definitely adds another layer of sexual tension to the story.
I'm interested to see how Kendra's story will play out and if she'll be redeemed somewhat. I didn't like her very much, but I think it's because she causes so much trouble for everyone around her and is so manipulative!
Whilst Gabriel and Samantha get their HEA, the end of the book is perfectly set up for the Layers trilogy, and it raises a LOT of questions. I must be reunited with the very intriguing Tristan!
Overall, this is a fairly quick, steamy read, that is filled with sexiness and suspense. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the story unfold.
