OrangeReviewStarMasseuse Anna Rossi is just about to meet her newest client, the wealthy, enigmatic Maxim Stein, when she runs into a mysterious man sexy enough to make her come undone with a smirk. It turns out the handsome, brunette stranger with piercing blue eyes and a quick wit is head of security for none other than Mr. Stein. Alec Flynn is gorgeous, confident, commanding, and just the type of man Anna distinctly worries she won't be able to run away from, for once. As the two give in to the undeniable heat between them, Anna knows she's flirting with danger, but she has no idea how much. Though classified as erotica, this novel is chock-full of action and drama as well. Anna has just as many skeletons in her closet as the inscrutable Alec, including deep abandonment issues and a constant fear of settling down. Strong, captivating writing makes for sexy banter between the couple that ignites the text and their bedroom scenes.
VERDICT Kincade skillfully imbues her novel with elements of tension, sexual and otherwise. A taut, erotic thriller.
