Years ago, Naval officer Dax Spencer and NCIS agent Holland Kirk indulged in a steamy affair—until she betrayed him in the wake of his father’s death. Dax tried to put her behind him with a payback of his own. But he never forgot Holland…
Now, as Dax and his fellow Perfect Gentlemen unravel a web of lies, he discovers his family’s tragedy is part of a much larger conspiracy. Soon, all clues point him back to New Orleans…where Holland waits, protecting her deadly secret and holding a torch for the only man she’s ever loved.
Once reunited, they can’t fight the passion flaring hot and wild. But something sinister lurks around every corner, from the elegance of the Garden district to the beauty of the bayou. Dax and Holland may find their way back to each other—if they survive.
I had some problems with this book. Well one major one. We spent so much time exploring the past that we lost focus on what the series is supposed to be about. Over half the book was spent in the past while the last half was trying to catch you up to the present and by the time it ended it felt as if we hadn't achieved much of anything.
You get a lot of information. Major information download, which okay great however I felt the book could have been split into novellas in between the actual books surrounding the questions we are still waiting to have answered about the first one instead of stalling between installments and holding back the major reveal stuff. There are a few important details but none that were so important that I felt these characters needed their own book.
I can't deny how hot and sexy it was between Dax and Holl because it was steam worthy but I was hoping for more focus on the journey we've been on since I started reading this series. That could be my own impatience but I'm hoping the next book gets us back on track again.
