From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a romance about taking chances, double lives, and falling madly in love with the one person you’re supposed to want dead.
Never steal from a king.
Down on her luck in Las Vegas, Isabel “Izzy” Lake turns to the regulated prostitution industry. But her first day on the job ends abruptly when her client dies, and his suitcase contains over a million dollars.
Izzy takes the money and sets off to a small town on the other side of the country, where she attempts to live a low-profile life. A few weeks into her new country girl lifestyle, she finds owning an old fixer-upper isn’t so fun when you’re a city girl with zero DIY skills.
Izzy’s handsome new neighbor, Kingston Jameson, is all too eager to fix her leaky faucet and warm the cold side of her bed. It’s not long before she finds herself falling for King. But is he really the sweet-talking country boy he claims to be, or has he come to collect more than her heart?
Kingston “King” Jameson knew he shouldn’t have let Garrett pick up the suitcase full of cash. And he sure as hell never expected Garrett to die at a brothel and get robbed by a prostitute.
King needs to get the suitcase – and the secret item hidden in the lining – before his boss kills him.
He has one problem: The girl who stole the suitcase has hidden it very well. She left her entire life behind in Las Vegas. She’s got nothing left to lose. If King wants that suitcase, he needs to get close to her. Close enough to watch her every move. To know her deepest secrets.
Okay, he has two problems: He’s also fallen in love with the girl he’s supposed to kill.

Izzy is a firecracker, that is for sure! She is independent, stubborn, super smart and full of one liners. Izzy is also on the run. She took something that didn’t belong to her and now after clues were left behind as to who she was, she has the wrong people after her.
Enter King AKA Colton. Super hot, ex-military turned hit man. King works for the wrong people…not by choice but out of obligation and you wonder how and why he came to be a hitman. Colton tracks Izzy down and pretends to be her “neighbor” who is just super helpful, and super hot and Izzy’s judgement gets clouded by that hotness!! LOL
The story was fast paced and kept me turning page after page. The climax was building and building as things heat up. I was literally on the edge of my seat in suspense waiting to see what finally happens to these star crossed lovers and that’s where I felt let down. All of this build up, all of this intrigue, all of the cloak and dagger and the ending was not leaving me feeling like I needed a cigarette. It left me saying, no, no, no…it did not just end like that!!! I wanted more!! I wanted more of what I had just read!! Unfortunately the end did not match the story I had been so enraptured in. The ending wasn’t horrible but I wish it had more meat, more gore…just more something!! I still enjoyed the characters, the fast pace and watching these two navigate dark waters!
