Available and a reissue April 5th 2016
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Marty Mathews had always known about the secret, forbidden pleasures that the women she had grown up with enjoyed. Women whose husbands or lovers were members of the exclusive "Club," where they took a selected "third" into their beds. And there is one man—a dangerous, forbidden man—who is part of this world and who has haunted Marty's dreams for years. But she had been the FBI agent assigned to shadow him, making him completely off limits. . .That is until Khalid is cleared and Marty is released from her assignment. Now, all bets are off. . .
The beautiful, fierce Marty Mathews is the one woman Khalid hungers for like no other and is the one woman he dare not let himself have. His past dogs his every step and danger lurks around every corner. If he wants to keep her safe, he must stay away from her. But the power of their desire is something they cannot deny—and once Marty is his, Khalid will do whatever it takes to keep her in his bed and in his arms.
Khalid and Marty have been secondary characters in other books in this series. Lora Leigh finally gives them their time in this book. Khalid has been under surveillance by Marty a FBI agent for two years. Now that time has come to a end and Marty has had enough. Khalid needs to claim her or she is moving on. Problem is Khalid has some pretty big secrets and he shares those with very few people. Danger follows him so if he claims her danger will follow her too. The best description for this book is erotic suspense. Marty and Khalid dance around their relationship with each other. Will they or won't they have a relationship for real. In between all this a terrorist is after Khalid. I loved Shayne. I kind of liked him better than Khalid for Marty and i LOVED Khalid in previous books. I enjoyed Marty's fathers and mom. The fathers were kind of funny together. I don't think the relationship between Marty and Khalid had enough time to develop in this book. They met when Marty was 15 i believe but he's spent years ignoring and dodging her so when he finally gives in to his feeling it's kind of fast and rough and then the book is over. The ending felt rushed. There was serious danger out of no where and then bamm it's over. I think the story needed more. I read this back in 2010 and i remember liking it more then.
