A one-night stand turns serious…

Nina’s neighbor sets her up on a blind date with a handsome insurance salesman. After a candlelit dinner, Nina hooks up with him in a posh New York hotel room, but she writes off the date as a one-night stand. Returning home, she discovers her neighbor’s death, her dog’s abduction and the salesman’s possible involvement.

Traipsing across the city with her date in tow, she realizes he’s a quarrelsome billionaire and that her dog may never return. Grieving her losses, she accompanies her date to a ‘billionaire summer camp’ in Sun Valley, Idaho, but the idyllic setting revolves around his whims—and the person who took her dog follows them.

Suspenseful and intense.

It seems I’ve found the motherlode of suspense and intense stories of late. This one is no different. It’s steamy, but there’s a good mystery and fascinating characters. The writing plugs along well and kept me interested throughout. I needed to know what would happen next.

Nina goes on a blind date and ends up with Alessio. It’s not what either expects and that’s what I liked about it. It was not the normal blind date trope. The mystery is compelling. I wanted to know more. This is a fast paced story, too. I didn’t mind the pacing, but it did cause me to go back and reread a few times to be sure I caught everything.

It’s a hot story and I would’ve liked to have known what happened after the story, but that’s a testament to the author’s ability to make me care about the characters. I wanted more and it’s a good thing.

If you’re looking for a story with heat, heart and a mystery, then this might be the book for you.
