review 1: I liked the general plot of this book- going undercover to catch the bad guys, while dealing with the day to day of the usual casework, throw in a hot partner and there ya go. I didn’t know this was a 3rd or 4th book of a series, or I would have been aware of the fact the main character is in the IRS, and talks way too much about taxes and people getting over on the government. I, myself, am not a fan of taxes, so that was a bit distracting to me and decreased my level of enjoyment a bit. Most readers would know about that ahead of time though, and wouldn’t have issues with it.Nick, Tara, and the others are engaging, believable, have a great chemistry, and work well together throughout the book. I did find it a little hard to believe that although Tara is working under... morecover on one case, she was allowed to testify for a second one and be recorded for news bits in the same town. I get Dallas is big, but strippers and drug runners watch TV too right? Wouldn’t you try to avoid the risk of getting caught and avoid the trial altogether, let your partner handle the face to face? On a side note, I enjoyed the visual of Nick with his 80s mustache, and Tara in her 80s leg warmers.As for heat rating, the buildup of heat and tension between the two leading up to their “special night” was a nice change from the usual romance and made me think how fun it would be to plan a “no nooky” month in my house for a little while, just to see what kind of alternatives we could come up with…Rating: 4HEAT Rating: HotReviewed By: Daysie W.Courtesy of: My Book Addictions and More
review 2: This book was so not as good as the last 4 were. I've come to really enjoy this series and was kind of disappointed with the events in this one. Like for example the major killer cliffhanger. Why oh why did she do that to me! Then there was the fact that I hated most of the secondary characters in the book mainly the strip club workers. Also the overly happy ending to the romances in the book were annoying. Oh and the build up towards Nick and Tara's special night really lead to disappointment for me. I think though that maybe there should have been some mandatory therapy for Tara after the last book. Then she wouldn't had the problems with work that she had going on in this one. The best thing about this book was Lu the Lobo and those dang hot pink leg warmers. I absolutely loved the discription of her exercise clothes. I will be continuing this series, and I hope for more next time. less
