Haunted by the death of her childhood friend, journalist Eden St. Claire has dedicated her life to catching serial killers—and she’s always done so alone. But when the lethal murderer Eden is tracking puts her in danger’s crosshairs, she agrees to accept protection from longtime friend Detective Cole Delaney.

Cole has secretly carried a torch for Eden for years. She might not want to let anybody in, but the thought of losing her is unbearable. Passions flare as the threats intensify. Can Cole convince Eden to break her own rule to never fall in love…before the killer snuffs out their happily-ever-after?

I am very thankful that I got to review this book. Let’s just say, “Wow!” If you at all like the T.V. show, Criminal Minds, then this book is for you.  Hopefully the very first page will grip you like it did me and keep you on the edge of your seat as it did me until I finished the book. The plot keeps twisting with unexpected surprises.

The main characters, Eden and Cole, are meant for each other. I personally was a bit annoyed for Cole regarding Eden’s lack of listening skills but obviously he loved her unconditionally. By the end of the book I couldn’t help but love not only the hero and heroine but all the other well established characters as well.

I most definitely recommend this book but I must warn you that it ends with a hook. While one case is solved there is another that is left unresolved. For that reason I’m left feeling frustrated because I want to read the next book right now. I can’t wait to read the next book and meet my new favorite characters again and solve the remaining case.
