Emily Chambray married in haste to a man she thought she knew despite warnings from her friends. WhenNnicky shows his true colors after the wedding Emily knows she’s needs out. But Nicky has no intention of letting her go. Her last attempt at escape didn’t end well and she knows if she doesn’t succeed this time, she’ll end up dead. When she runs into Xavier Caine she thinks she may have found a knight in shining armor. However, she knows nothing about him. Is she jumping from the frying pan into the fire or is this something else?

Well-written, suspenseful and hot this story kept me on the edge of my seat. I hated Nicky. Icky Nicky I called him in my head. Slimy bastard. I wanted to rip his balls off just for fun. Emily isn’t a bad character. Who hasn’t done something stupid in haste only to repent at leisure? Emily’s is a doozy though. Caine is a hottie, but I’m afraid I didn’t like him much for awhile there. Using people and assumptions are two things I hate and he did both. Plus, there’s a reason you have a gut instinct. Ignoring it is a huge black mark in my book. However, I loved the names of Caine's dogs. lol All-in-all this is a great fast read and the ending? Holy shit! What the hell?!

Lucy Matthews ignores her instincts and goes out on a date with Zack. She should really know by now that Zack’s type is all wrong for her not to mention he can’t get her name right, but she’s determined to have an adventure. Until he tries to sneak her into a club and they come across a diamond heist in progress. Max Callaghan pushes all of Lucy’s buttons and all she can think about is his hot bod taking down the bad guys. When she’s caught red-handed with the sack (of diamonds) Max brings her along against the better judgment of his crew. Lucy is in for an adventure alright. One that may end badly, as in dead.

Suspension of belief is key to enjoying this hot tidbit. A crew of guys taking down another crew during a diamond robbery with no police in sight and then all that hot sex. *fans self* Seriously. Who does it that much in a few short hours and in public, too? Woo doggie! And cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, missionary and everything in-between. *winks* The plot is thin, but the sex is hot. I really like the characters, too. All-in-all a yummy quick read that will make you want a Max for yourself.

  2. Erotica Suspense--that is an interesting subgenre.

    1. Suspense that's really steamy is probably more accurate, but I like the erotica label. :D I also like books that can't be pigeonholed. Not that I don't also like straight up Suspense or Sci-Fi (etc), but you get the idea. lol

    1. They're both good. Craving Caine has a more serious slant and Diamond Duplicity is a fun romp. :)

  4. Oh Craving Caine does look good. I've read a few erotica suspense ones and enjoyed them.

    1. I'll read just about anything, but I do like a book with a genre like suspense that adds extra spice. ;)
