This new life depended upon one thing: your job. And so you agreed. You thought it would be simple. You thought it would be cut and dry.

This is a great and creative tale!!! I love Cambria Hebert's writing; she is especially gifted with writing the falling in love experience. She puts those deep, can't -begin-to-explain-it feelings down on paper like no one else can and develops realtionships slowly, at a natural and believable pace. And now we can add Queen of Suspense to her titles. I held my breath practically the entire novel (thank goodness I'm a fast reader -- tee hee hee)!!! The whole novel has you clenching your Kindle, asking yourself "how can this work out?!?!" And the characters......oh the characters!!! Both Dex and Piper are great characters. Dex is a good guy consumed with guilt, leading him to believe he is, at his core, bad. Piper is beautifully sweet and loving; the perfect woman to bring light back into Dex's world. I was all tied up in knots over how this bittersweet story would end. It was a really good ending, but truthfully I didn't like how it ended (but that's totally a personal thing, not a "bad book" thing). Other than not loving the ending (although it was a really well done ending), my only other point of concern was about Dex's boss. Yeah, he was a great bad guy. Totally perfect. But I would've liked to understand why he had such power over Dex's and Piper's destinies. How much was a bluff? Maybe we'll learn more in future installments, but for right now, I wish I'd been given just a touch more, maybe near the end. Overall, a FANTASTIC start to a new series that I highly recommend!
Oh my goodness gracious!!! I'm a huge fan of Regina at Mae I Design. Yes, I have favorite cover designers just like I have favorite authors. And I just LOVE Regina's work!!! This cover is gorgeous, fits the book perfectly and is purple!!! Okay, maybe I'm a pick peculiar when it comes to the color purple ... perhaps obsessed is better verbiage?
