Desiree Holt



Hunting a murderer is hot work, in more ways than one.

Lindsey Califaro, second-in-command at Elite Marketing, is suspicious when her boss, Craig Wainwright, is killed in a car accident. She’s had a funny feeling about things around the agency for a while and now her spidey senses are going haywire. Something is wrong and she’s determined to find out what.

John Martino, highly sought-after forensic accountant, is sent by Arroyo to dig into Elite’s books and see if there is an answer there. He expects problems, but what he doesn’t expect is to find a super-smart, hot female who pushes all his buttons and sends his sex drive into overload.

Investigating Elite’s finances and Craig’s private life, the two uncover a sordid trail of sex trafficking and drugs so extensive it shocks them. As they draw closer to the real head of the operation, the heat between them rises and their feelings for each other explode.

As they work to blow open the criminal enterprise, John must do everything he can to protect Lindsey from a master criminal. But will his best be enough?

Desiree Holt has done it again. Although I have yet to read the other books in this series, I had no trouble following the story.

Lindsey Califaro is tasked with taking charge of Elite Marketing when her boss Craig Wainwright dies in a car accident. While she was second in command at Elite, she is actually an employee of Arroyo Enterprises, the parent company.

Craig had handled many of high profile companies and with the unexpectedness of his death, Noah and Taylor Cantrell, owners of Arroyo, travel down with a forensic accountant to be sure nothing is shady, and to ensure the clients are taken care of as they take full control.

It’s the forensic accountant, John Martino that has Lindsey a bit anxious. They have a history of four pretty amazing days together, followed by nothing, not even a phone call.

John wasn’t going to take the job, but thought better of it. He really wants to make up with Lindsey and this may be the way to get in the door. I really did love the way he groveled in the elevator after their first business dinner with the Cantrells.

As they investigate Lindsey’s hunches in the finances, they stumble on something more far reaching than they could have imagined. A client spa, a modeling agency,  private island photo shoots, all figure into things. As John follows the money, his relationship with Lindsay goes from sizzle to flame.

Investigations outside of Elite’s purview will have you holding your breath in suspense as this tale twists and turns.

Suspenseful, with plenty of surprises and the sensual and erotic relationship will practically melt your kindle.
