“You wonder how well you really know someone.”

First and foremost this is a mystery with suspense, but then it is a romance. This is a Second Chance Romance that makes you swoon root for them both and earnestly wait for her to accept him.

Lindsey, second in command in a prominent and illustrious marketing agency, and John, a famous forensic accountant have a past. A very hot and sensual one at that. It was the silence after the fact and that spanned years made Lindsey distrustful not just in him but herself as well.

What brought them together was her the death of her boss. That one strange phone call spiraled Elite and everyone down a road that they may not get out of in one piece.

The story was really well-written, especially the mystery aspect, and that helped when the mystery got dark. It was a twisting and suspenseful road.  I do wish there was more information or backstory with Lindsey and John. Their love story plot, though great, was not the main plot, and it felt a bit drawn out for how long the full story is. The Romantic plot and the Mystery plot helped me want to reach the climax, which might not have been possible with just one genre here.

I have not read book one but it does feel as if some of the characters appear in book one. If you are going to read the series it may be best read it in order. That being said this book is great for readers who want both Mystery and Romance.
