From the Publisher:

She’s on the run . . .

Jane Beaumont currently has in her possession: a cat, a hundred grand in cash, and a pistol. She’s on her way home to Bay City, Oregon-and away from the nightmare of her violent ex-boyfriend. She’ll lay low at Beaumont Body Shop, a car detailer that runs a private investigation agency in the back. The only wrench in her plan is Kage Archer: sexy, strong, and intent on protecting Jane at all costs. She’s wanted Kage forever, but putting him in harm’s way is not a risk she’s willing to take.

He’s not going anywhere

Kage is no stranger to the dark side of life, but he’s always walked on the right side of the law. Yet when Jane expressed her interest in him years ago, he pushed her away for her own good. Now, after learning of all she’s endured, Kage can’t leave her side-or hide his need for her. When a frightening situation turns dire, can Kage convince Jane that the safest place to be is in his arms?

Hot cover? Check. Intriguing synopsis? Check.

I devoured this book. This book had a great balance between the back story and the sex. The sex was hot but not overly in your face or on every single page. Sometimes I like that but most of the time I need it to balance within the story. So, about that story….

Jane is running away from her abusive ex boyfriend who may or may not have some ties with some dark people. She also stole his money. Not so smart. Good thing she has her bother and Kage to protect her. The both run the private investigation service that is fronted by the body shop. They know that he is going to come after her but they don’t know all the details of their dysfunctional relationship. Jane and Scott had a semi D/S relationship that started out concentual and turned into something that Jane could not control. Feeling helpless and guilty over her father’s death she knows that she has to get out of the relationship.

Jane returns home, see’s Kage and all of her feelings for him reignite. Jane tries to ignore her feelings for Kage as a precaution since she knows that Scott is coming after her and is dangerous. They cannot contain their feelings for one another and things heat up between the two of them. Jane isn’t completley honest about her past relationship and Kage is afraid of getting too close. Jane is a shell of her former self and Kage see right through that. I love that he had this alpha personality but he was always building up Jane. He wasn’t alpha to the point of overwhelming her but used it to encourage her.

I really liked the book and I think it is a great start to a new series about some sexy PI’s. Book 2, Weston, will be released January 7, 2014
