As a bridal shop owner, Mikayla Martin helps make women’s wedding dreams come true. Her own life, however, has become a nightmare since she witnessed a murder -- and got an up-close-and-personal look at the killer. What’s worse: She knows she knows him. But the police, after doing an alibi check, don’t believe her. It’s up to Mikayla to prove them wrong…and do whatever it takes to solve the murder by herself.
Elite Ops agent Nikolai Steele, code name Renegade, is asked to pay an old comrade a favor. This friend swears he’s no killer -- and Nik believes him -- even though he’s been mistaken as one by Mikayla. So Nik goes to set her straight…but the moment he lays eyes on the fiery and determined beauty, he knows he’s in too deep. A woman this irresistible can only mean trouble and, sure enough, after sticking her nose in one too many places, someone wants Mikayla dead. Now Nik must find a way to keep her safe, clear his friend’s name, and find the real killer, who remains on the loose…
**** (4 stars)
Loved the book, loved the couple. This one was a real "who done it". It had a nice mystery to go along with how the characters met and developed together. And it didn't involve government espionage. Mikayla is a true "good girl" and winds up with the baddest of all bad boys who has a LOT of baggage to overcome. My only complaint about the book was it was about 50 pages to long, and after 375 pages of build-up, the big "reveal" seemed a little short. But the couple got their fairy tale ending, right? And is it only me, or are Leighs sex scenes getting tamer?
