My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So glad i started mid series because if Started with book one I’d never have read another. I like Roarke and Eve but hate them in this. I hated her unprofessionalism in sleeping with a suspect, don’t see why she wasn’t fired since everyone knew including the senator, and I hated Roarke’s Alpha male bullshit. Shutting her up with kisses, slamming her back into walls to take those kisses, telling her if he wanted her to sleep with him, she would be, those things aren’t romantic to me. It’s misogynistic and creepy. This is why I don’t read romances much. Thank god he isn’t like that in latter book or I’d never read this series.
The mystery was interesting however and the reason for the third star. A high class prostitute, grand daughter of the aforementioned senator is killed by a gun. Guns are long illegal but whores are legal. Roarke was out with her so he’s an instant suspect and almost the only one for most of the book even as more prostitutes are killed.
Sadly this is more romance than mystery. I do like the later books and I’m glad I read book one even if didn’t like it.
