I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Special Agent Annika Trace is the hottest thing in law enforcement—at least on TV. Her long legs, designer suits, and hunky sidekick have garnered millions of fans, one of whom—a four-year-old kidnap victim named Linzie—is refusing to talk to the real FBI. In desperation, Special Agent Trace—a.k.a. actress Nikki Gower—is called in to help.
Special Agent Josh Saxon became a hero when he brought Linzie back safely. Now he’s out to catch the kidnappers and doesn’t need some Hollywood caricature of a federal agent interfering in his case. But when Nikki establishes a rapport with the child, Josh admits she might just get him enough information to track down the culprits. And even as Josh and Nikki spar over the best way to get the job done, another rapport is being established—on a much more physical and decidedly more adult level—as Josh discovers firsthand how Nikki makes the airwaves sizzle.
I liked this. I liked the idea behind it; a real FBI agent having to work with a TV FBI agent. It was different and I did enjoy it.
The relationship did appear to just sort of happen. Sure there was sexual tension between them but nothing verbal for a long time and then they were suddenly in bed with each other. It just happened a little too fast for me.
Other than the relationship, I enjoyed the rest of the book, the case, the characters, the sub-plot.
