I love how this book shows you that love is beautiful. And it doesn't matter what you look like. Sam and Zack's relationship. Sam doesn't take any crap even when there are bullets flying! The whole time I'm hoping that Zack stops being an dummy and tell her how he feels. This is the first book I read of Roxanne St. Claire's and I will be reading more. It is so hard to find a good romantic/suspense book and I just found a author who has many! I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who like a great suspense with a steamy romance!
