L.A. homicide detective Jack Rivera has a killer body, a wicked smile, and a velvet touch. Just ask Christina McMullen. The cocktail-waitress-turned-psychologist has handled obsessed patients, love-struck drunks, and her own guilt-tripping mother with aplomb. But when it comes to the lieutenant, Chrissy has an old-fashioned case of irresistible attraction—until things turn fatal when Rivera is accused of murder!

Not only was Rivera found unconscious next to a dead woman, but the victim was his beautiful ex-girlfriend—who left Rivera for his wealthy dad. Chrissy detects a few father-and-son issues—along with plenty of evidence that her would-be boyfriend is guilty. But when she starts looking into the dead woman’s past, a rich senator’s connections, and Rivera’s relationship with his mother, will she discover there’s hope for her and Rivera after all? Or will her curiosity have deadly consequences?
Read A Review:

L. A. homicide detective Jack Rivera is under suspicion of murder. Cocktail-waitress-turned-psychologist Christina McMullen can't believe he did it. But it might be her libido talking. When it comes to Rivera, she has a bad case of irresistible attraction.

To add insult to injury, the dead woman was his beautiful ex-girlfriend now engaged to his father. And Christina thought she had family problems!

As Christina investigates, she suspects his mother or his father the senator may have killed her. She also knows that she'd better be sure before she tells Rivera of her suspicions.

The dead woman had quite a past. Can Christina uncover the real killer without putting herself in danger? Will Rivera be there to save her once again?

I really enjoy this series. The sexual tension between Rivera and Christina is well written. I thought this book was well crafted and that the various characters interacted well and gave the story a lot of twists and turns in identifying the killer. The writer has done a great job in creating a cast of characters that engage the reader and intensify the mystery.

I highly recommend this book and series.
