Eden Smith runs quite a lucrative business called Dirty Deeds. What’s her specialty, you might ask. Revenge. And boy is she great at it until a dead body floats onto the beach, that is. Eden’s business relies on secrecy. So when a dead body floats onto the beach clutching her business card, she is in serious trouble. Detective Kelly Riordan lands the case, and it has been fireworks ever since. Eden has evaded Detective Riordan at every turn until they meet face to face. When it becomes apparent that her life is in danger, Kelly will do everything he can to ensure she’s there to get her revenge.
There were non-stop action and attraction! It was awesome to read both Eden’s and Kelly’s thought process. Even better, watching the two of them figure out how each other’s mind worked. She grew up on the streets while he did everything to earn his father’s love. To be able to read each other was truly fascinating. While there was a lot of romance, there was also a good deal of respect between the characters. These characters were well written and fleshed out. AJ weaves a dramatic tale of the cost of revenge, trust, and love. I can’t wait to see what happens next and rumor has it, whispers: this is a series!
