Eden Campbell thought she led the perfect life, but after stumbling upon her fiancée shaking his rump for a pink-haired man wearing her favorite lingerie, getting fired from the job she loved, and becoming the prime suspect in a vicious murder, her so-called perfect life crumbles around her. Now, as her lifelong friends fight to prove her innocence, she’s forced to hide in the middle of nowhere with a perfect stranger… a perfectly charming, sexy, irresistible stranger.

When Jasper Carrington became a private detective he never imagined he’d be hiding suspected criminals on the side. But that’s exactly what happened. Now, as a favor to a friend he’s stuck watching over a petite beauty who set his blood on fire and threatens to turn his simple desire for her into something much more.

***Shelly – #NerdGirlXrayer  Review***
Eden is having one he!! of a week.  She catches her fiancée cross dressing and dancing for a pink haired man named Bubbles, she loses her job, and her beloved cat passes away.  To top it off she is the sole suspect in her bosses wife’s murder and has to go into hiding.  Well I guess at least the hunky man that is hiding you is easy on the eyes.

This is a short novella but don’t let that fool you.  Ms. Bush packs a lot of action and some steamy sex scenes in this story.  The story line flows well and the action is never ending.  Eden is a confident, successful women who is determined to fight to clear her name of murder charges.  Her friends Tillie, Joe, and Jasper are right along side her to help.

There are some twists that you won’t see coming.  It is a great read with the funny moment from the pink haired man named Bubbles to the hair raising scene of pursuit of the real killer.  It you want a great short read that contains Romance and Mystery then this is the story for you.
