To have and to hold—
until the case is solved?
When an undercover assignment pairs laid-back Florida detective Dante Matthews with by-the-book cop Eloise Archer, he knows it won’t be easy. And not just because they’re competing for the same promotion. Now they’re living together under the same roof, and it’s getting harder to ignore his deepening feelings for his “wife.” Can he convince Eloise to partner up—for life?
In My Opinion…
Organized, straight-laced, follow every rule Eloise Archers is up for a promotion. Her competition is reckless, throws the rulebook out the window, and a lone wolf.
When Eloise is partnered with Dante Matthews to pose undercover as newlyweds, their respect and attraction for each other grow.
Tara Randel gives readers a peek into the challenges and strains of working an undercover operation. Between the façade the detectives put on for the neighbors, the balance of not getting too close to the people they are surrounded by (or each other for that matter), and uncovering the big players in a criminal network, and life gets very interesting.
The chemistry and growing friendship between Eloise and Dante are organic and developed nicely through the story. When opposites attract, there is sure to be some head-butting between two headstrong characters.
Randel does a superb job in highlighting the opposites in Dante and Eloise even down to their families and upbringing. And I loved Dante and his brothers (and can’t wait to hang out with a couple of the others in future books).
