Friends with benefits just got hotter.
Former homicide detective Camden Wilde has been in love with his ex-partner, Eva Cardoso, for longer than he cares to admit. Not that it matters. She’s shoved him into the friend zone, and after living through the hell of his parents’ violent deaths, Cam’s unable to give her the idyllic life she secretly desires.
Eva’s never met a person who hasn’t let her down. Cam may be sex personified, but he’s the only man she can trust, and there’s no way she’ll risk their friendship on the off-chance they could be more. Especially not after the one scintillating night she’s trying—and failing—to forget.
When a murder-for-hire contract on his head lands Eva on his doorstep, Cam knows it’s time to put up or shut up. He’s done biding his time, and he’ll be damned if he lets the delectable detective ignore what’s between them, no matter the cost.
Camden Wilde has loved his former partner, Homicide Detective Eva Cardoso, for five years but has been content to be her “best friend.” Now that he’s working with his brothers as an investigator, it might be time to make his move. But, she’s got idealized visions of marriage and he’s lived it and lost.
I really, really liked Cam…everything about him except for his reluctance to tell Eva the truth. While he had good reason to be fearful, he’s a tough guy and could handle it. I liked Eva, too, but her indecision about him and her former beau drove me nuts. When they were together, they WORKED! When they didn’t, it was awful.
I liked the whiff of suspense in the story, even though it was fairly obvious to me as to who was behind the threat. It didn’t matter as the element just ramped up the tension.
The Wilde brothers are all very interesting men and Cam seems to be the one who’s got the most going for him. He and Eva make a pretty formidable couple and they just sizzled. I’m enjoying this series and it’s ideal for those who prefer the romance aspect to tip the scales higher than the suspense.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
