The moment I saw her, I wanted her.
I tried to resist her, but Race had other plans.
One night, in a moment of weakness, I gave in to my desires.
I still had a job to do before her world collapsed.
If I failed at finding the person behind the threats, I could lose her forever.
Temptation can be dangerous.

I must start of by saying this was the very first book I have read of Chelle Bliss…and I want to know WHY HAVE I WAITED SO LONG???
So for those of you who are familiar with her MEN OF INKED series…you are familiar with how the author writes. Well, it is all new to me… and it is HOT AS HECK!
You have Morgan DeLuca, who is recently out of the army and living in Chicago and attending a wedding with his mom in Florida. His cousin Izzy is getting married and he hasn’t seen this side of the family for several years. While he was at the wedding, his cousin Thomas has a PI business in Florida and he makes Morgan an offer to move to sunny Florida and work for him.
Morgan moves to Florida and his first PI client is Ms. Race True. Someone has been sending her threatening emails and she needs to find out who, and Morgan is the man for the job.
Even though when he first laid eyes on her, he was attracted to her, but he wanted to try to keep things “professional”, but that lasted a split second. The chemistry between the two of them are undeniable, but she is a “corporate woman” and he is “rough around the edges”.
Race tries to be the strong woman that she has felt that she was supposed to be. Things in her past has made her focus on work and only work, and not think of anything else. But one look at Morgan and her thoughts are different and he makes her feel like there is something else other than work. (well hello…having a HOT MAN around you, what else is there?)
What I loved about the story, is the guys are all, rough and tough, but they all still respect their ma’s.
You just know with all the hot men at ALFA PI, there are going to be some additional stories to come in the future, and I will be the first to say… I can’t wait for more. I just hope that the guys have learned their lessons, and put locks on those doors in the office. 😉
“You’re really purdy,” she slurred with a lopsided grin, running her finger down my cheek.
“That’s it. No more drinks for you,” I said, dragging the glass away from her.
“No! I’ve only had three,” she said as she lurched forward, pulling the drink out of my hands.
“I’m enjoying myself. I’ve had a bitch of a week and I deserve to let loose a little.”
I held my hands up. “You’ve actually had four martinis, but anything you want, princess.”
Her eyes grew into little slits. “I’m not your princess,” she slurred, sounding completely adorable.
My cheeks hurt as I smiled. “I’m going to take you home now. I think you need to sleep it off.”
“Last time I checked,” she said before hiccupping, “you’re not my daddy.” A slow smile crept across her face. She scooted closer and whispered, “Unless that’s your thing.” She tried to wink, but both eyes closed, one after the other.
I leaned into her space, a breath away from her lips. “It’s not my thing, but I’m happy to act out your fantasies. But I don’t think you want to cross that line. Once you go there, there’s no going back.” I stared into her eyes.
“Oooh.” Her eyes grew wide. “Is that supposed to scare me, Mr. DeLuca?”
I didn’t move. “I’m just giving you fair warning. You’ve had a few drinks, and I won’t take advantage of that. I’m just telling you how it is.”
“You’re full of yourself.” Her warm, sweet breath caressed my lips as she spoke.
All I wanted to do was reach out, pull her face to mine, and kiss her full, beautiful lips. “I’m sure of myself and confident in my abilities, yes. That’s entirely different than being full of myself.” I licked my lips, testing her.
Her eyes dropped to my mouth as her lips parted.
“Another?” Lisa interrupted.
“We’re good,” I replied, keeping my eyes pinned to Race and waving Lisa off.
“Pfft,” Lisa scoffed, stomping away.
Race glared in Lisa’s direction. “She wants you,” she whispered.
Was she jealous?
“I don’t want her.”
“She’s a sure thing though.”
I leaned closer, leaving very little space between us. “I never liked easy.”
“All men like easy.” Her body swayed, moving so close our lips almost brushed.
