Capture, bondage and fantasies fulfilled. It’s all fun and games until someone gets killed.
Bestselling crime novelist Jett Lewis is stumbling over a wicked case of writer’s block, his fast-flowing words having run dry. His publisher’s screaming “deadline”, the fans are ready to riot, and Jett just wants to disappear. His friend Carissa suggests he get away, clear his head…get laid. And she has just the ticket. Literally. Two passes to Eden, an exclusive island paradise.
Recently sans girlfriend, Jett convinces Carissa to go with him, and the resort is more than either of them bargained for—especially when the simple beach trip turns to murder. Thrust into a plot sinister enough to rival Jett’s books, the couple embarks on a search for the killer. The most shocking revelation of all might be their mutual attraction…and how much Jett and Carissa love working undercover.
I love me some Mari Carr. While this is the 4th book in her Big Easy series it is not necessary to read the others to enjoy this one. It’s a nice fast read with enough steam and action to keep you wanting more. It’s a little hard to believe that Clarissa is clueless as to who is going all Dom on her in the club, but I suppose that adds a bit of fun to the mix as well. I haven’t read all of the books released in the Eden series but the ones I have read make the island sound like an awesome place to be! Some amazingly sexy stuff goes on there and I’d like to know how to get my tickets!
