eARC provided by publisher through Netgalley
Welcome to Eye Candy, the East Side’s hottest nightclub where the bartenders are hot, the cocktails are fancy, and danger lurks just under the surface…
Eve Webber, the gorgeous and savvy owner of Eye Candy, knows better than anyone that growing up on the wrong side of the tracks comes with certain complications. Determined to run a clean business and fix up the East Side, Eve’s plans get temporarily stalled when a potential new hire walks into her bar. The sexual chemistry crackling between them is a potent distraction…even if she refuses to mix business with the promise of pleasure.
Detective Matt Dorchester lives by strict rules that have kept him alive in impossible situations. When his latest undercover assignment has him playing a bartender, his desire for the passionate owner has him breaking every single one. Eve is in danger and her life depends on his secrecy. But once their attraction reaches a climactic conclusion, Matt must make a desperate choice: Tell her the truth about who he really is―or risk a once-in-a-lifetime love to save her life?
Eve and Matt find themselves both in difficult positions. Eve is trying to protect her business and neighborhood by helping the police catch a childhood friend who is a bad guy now. Matt is the cop assigned to protect her, undercover and without her knowledge. Then when they meet there is a smack in the face instant attraction. Problem number one for Matt. Problems seem to multiply for both as the days go by. Loved Matt and Eve. Both characters are fleshed out so well and detailed. Both have such different family lives and pasts. As the books moves along things get more and more serious. Secrets come out and things get intense. There is some definite suspense and plenty of action toward the end as things come to a head. A page turner at times and a enjoyable read.
