Homicide Detective Vance Summers has seen his fair share of bloody crime scenes, but nothing could have prepared him for the gore he is about to endure, not even his nine years of experience on the job. A serial killer is on the loose in Los Angeles attacking whole families, and Vance is the only one who can catch him. But that’s not what the killer seems to think. What becomes a fun game of cat and mouse to the killer, turns Vance’s life into a living hell for him, his family, and his friends.
Sweet, demure Melina Higgins is minding her business when – BAM! – she literally crashes into the most gorgeous man she has ever seen. Although hesitant to date a man whose dangerous job consumes his life, she is unable to control her attraction to this sexy, sensitive, family man. When a serial killer sets his sights on her new detective boyfriend, Melina has no choice but to help fight for her man…and her life.
If you want your mind blown this is the book for you! It has one heck of a cliffhanger, that being said I can’t wait for the next book to come out!
Vance is a police detective, who is really good at his job, but it is slowly killing him. He does not have the emotional stability to look at murder scene after scene without it doing irreparable damage to him. He was happiest as a beat cop. Anyway he is called out to a nasty crime scene that involves families. Brutally dismembered even the children. No clues, no witnesses nothing to go on. They have to just wait for more bodies and hope for the killer to make a mistake.
Meanwhile Vance meets Melina, a dance instructor, during a car accident. He feels an instant and strong connection with Melina and follows up with her at the hospital. The attraction jumps off the pages. They are perfect for each other. She fits with his chosen family, the guys he lives with that have been friends since kindergarten, and his real family.
He is happy in life, and gets pulled off the case at work, so he is feeling more in control of his life. Until the threat to his family and Melina comes in. His brother is hurt, his friends are all beaten badly, and an innocent has been killed in his home.
There is so much going on yet it is clear and decisive, you are never confused as to who or what is going on. There are parts which deal with each character all of them not just the MC’s. Kept me turning pages until the last page then I just sat there ….
