Publisher's Summary

Remy Devereux is an ace homicide detective with the SFPD. At work, she's embroiled in a months-long murder investigation that has yet to show any signs of breaking. At home, she's on the skids with her soon-to-be ex-girlfriend, while nightmares of the gruesome murder scene keep her up at night.

On the other side of the country, Giana Falco has just made the biggest change in her life. She's ended her engagement and now she's moving to the west coast to take a job as a forensic scientist in a town where she knows practically no one.

Sparks fly the moment Remy and Giana meet. Remy has never seen a woman more intelligent or more beautiful than her new colleague, but she knows that allowing herself to fall for a straight woman would be a uniquely masochistic kind of folly. For her part, Giana is intrigued by the tall and reticent detective. She sees no reason why the two of them shouldn't become the best of friends.

The stakes couldn't be higher as the two women put their heads together to work the case, drawing ever closer to finding the killer-and ever closer to finding each other. Try as they might to ignore it, the attraction they feel becomes something neither one of them can deny.

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

Y’all. You don’t even understand how much I love this book. I wrote a raving, glowing review about it on Goodreads when I first read it earlier this year. When I saw that it had been turned into an audiobook I darn near lost my ever loving mind.

It is astonishing that this is Miss Arden‘s DEBUT novel because it because it is Just. So. Good. The highlights:

1 - The story is well structured, perfectly paced, and keeps you reading.
2 - The writing is excellent and pretty much flawlessly edited.
3 - The characters nearly jump off the page they are so well fleshed out.
4 - Oh my lord, the romance. It is almost too easy to tumble into and obsess over. Seriously. I may honestly be obsessed with Giana and Remy. Their connection is both explosively sexual and yet deeply emotional. This author could write an entire series around them and I would weep with joy. They are honestly one of the most dynamic couples I have had the privilege to journey with. This is coming from someone who reads almost one lesfic book A DAY.

Those are the general highlights. I would throw in the huge BONUS that neither of the MC’s are a white Anglo-Saxon, blonde haired, blue-eyed girl. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being any of those things. I only mean to say that as a woman of color, it is rare that I pick up a romance and have the privilege of reading about a phenomenal MAIN CHARACTER who looks and speaks like me, as well as comes from a culture I can identify with. I am so grateful to have this book/audiobook in my library to vibe with!

To conclude, this novel is outstanding and the audiobook is splendid (excellent work, Melissa Moran). That is my final judgment and I will die on that hill. Stop reading my review and just buy it already.

Lovely Romance with a Murder Mystery

This book was definitely a good listen! The lesbian detective/cop is working on a murder case and the new, sexy, straight, forensic scientist in town is there to help... in more ways than one. Their relationship starts off as friends and sort of work colleagues, but they eventually become more. The forensic scientist was such a good character. When they finally really have sex together there were moments I laughed at how in control the straight lady was and she told the cop exactly what to do... there were some semi stressful moments but all ended perfectly. loved the audiobook. the narration was good. Audible needs more from this author! :)

Not here for it.

I was kind of disturbed by the author using an attempted rape scene to create more misunderstanding drama between the two main characters, who clearly have communication issues and past traumas that impede having, or even working toward, a healthy relationship. Should have focused more on creating an engaging murder mystery and less on the drama.

Fairly solid characters, predictable

I love a good mystery and a well developed romance.

This was an okay mystery and a not too bad romance. Some scenes were memorable, and well described.

I recommend as a light summer read that you won’t have to think about too much. Be aware that one scene includes an attempted assault.
