If that’s what you’re looking for, I suggest you move on. I curse a lot, work too fucking much, and keep to myself. My edges are hard, rough, and even dark at times.
I never thought I would wind up in the business I’m in. I may not always play by the rules, but I go where the money is, keep my nose clean, and my affairs organized.
Who knew one fucking e-mail would change everything in my controlled life. I swore I’d never touch a case like hers again, but there was something intriguing behind every word I read.
She had my attention, she would have my services, but I never thought she’d steal my heart.
My name is Chase Black, owner of Dark Edges PI.
I’m your good girl and I once had everything.
A big beautiful house with a view of gorgeous mountains, an expensive car, stress-free job, a wardrobe any woman would die for, but one thing was missing… the ever-absent husband.
I never expected to be in the position I’m in, but I needed answers.
I sent one e-mail thinking I would figure it all out. It wasn’t the route I intended to take. The life I’d been living was a lie and he gave me the answers I needed. What happened next I wasn’t prepared for.
He had my information, he took the case, but I never thought he’d capture my heart.
My name is Naomi McAllister, owner of a broken heart.
This is our story…
Basically, I knew what I was expecting when the book was described as erotica. I also knew, based on the synopsis that I was most likely either going to love or hate Chase. I was expecting rough around the edges…I only kind of liked Chase, if I am being honest. Myself, I don’t like my guys to sleep around before the get with the girl. It stresses me out, plain and simple. And Chase, well, that’s what he did. Ya ya, I get it, I know, they were not in a relationship, etc…but still, I don’t like it. So, strike one against Chase. And really, that…well, and the dirty talk. Again….I love it, I do…however, I think that one can use the word “cunt” too much. And Chase Black loved that word…..a lot.
Then we have Naomi, or “No” (not a fan of the nickname because I kept reading it like NO)….I ride the fence with her too…She’s not my favorite heroine but she’s also not my least favorite I have ever read. She was just okay for me….I can’t really pinpoint what it was, but at times I felt she might be a tad crazy? or she was just sheltered? emotionally beat down? I am not sure…
Overall, I liked the premise of this story. Aside from what I have previously mentioned, I liked the character’s okay. I did not, however, like the ending….but I am assuming we will be getting a book 2?
Over all, 3.75 stars for this debut novel by Kane Caldwell 🙂
