***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
After years of tangled sheets with a series of one-night-stands and living under a whiskey-induced haze, Detective Dex Preston is constantly trying to cope with the pain and guilt of his past. His perpetual state of denial is interrupted by a disturbing string of horrific murders, thrusting him into a very bizarre case. Dex struggles to bring justice to the murdered women because every lead uncovered is tied to the women in his life.
As the bodies pile up, Dex realizes his life will never be the same when he has an unexpected run-in with Trina Hayes, a snarky blonde who possesses the potential to break down the walls of his hardened heart. She alone can bring Dex face to face with two things he fears most—love and death. For the first time in years, he finds himself concerned about someone else, but she could be next on his killer’s list.
Dex knows he needs to find the killer even if he isn’t prepared for what unfolds next.
Dex is a detective, a “manwhore” and he likes to drink. He has decided to never give into love and likes his one-night stands. Trina is battling her own demons and isn’t looking for love either until they run into each other at the diner. From that moment on nothing is what they expect and nothing is going as planned. The author makes the reader fall in love with Dex and with the idea of Dex and Trina….but nothing goes as planned.
The plot of this book is so quick moving and so action packed that the reader can’t put it down. There is no stopping point that seems acceptable for the reader to take a break to continue with their day….nope….they must keep reading. The author pulls the reader into the town of Hawk Creek and never lets them out. The reader will run through a ton of emotions when reading this story as well. You will laugh, sigh, swoon, yell and at times just have your mouth wide open in a state of shock. The characters are so well developed that the reader feels like they have made a whole new set of friends….but how well can you really know someone?!?
This is an amazing read and one that you shouldn’t miss out on!!! I am already looking forward to book 2 in the series and I don’t even know what it is about! Make sure you add this to your TBR list and add it quick! I know that anyone that picks this book up will love it!
