What an incredible debut novel. Susan Sey delivers a fast-paced tale that kept me turning the pages. When I was done, I greedily read the teaser of her second book Money Shot and can't wait for Goose's story.
I fell in love with Patrick, the gorgeous, flawed thief. He's a fallen angel and you're never exactly sure he's reformed. Liz the hard-working, formidable FBI agent grudgingly agrees to work with him on a counterfeiting case, but she refused to follow his agenda. Patrick wants her in bed.
Until they can show each other their weaknesses, they won't be whole.
She looked up at him, and he realized he'd miscalculated, badly. Because her eyes weren't snapping with temper, as he'd intended. Instead they were a dark, serious blue, and he fell helplessly into them. He didn't move, couldn't move, as she reached with slow, deliberate intent and threaded her fingers through the hair at the nape of his neck. She laid her lips against his with a sweetness that all but shattered his heart. It certainly cracked his control.
When she drew back, he tried to breathe again but found that his lungs had gone temporarily off the job. He stared at her. God how did she do that? Make each kiss an unexpected revelation.
Sey's imagery is elegant and her pacing, faultless. I'll be first in line when the second book hits the bookstore.
