Cora. . . . I got my driver’s license on my sixteenth birthday so I could visit my brother in prison. Five and a half years later, he’s still locked up for a murder he didn’t commit and I’m still trying to find a way to set him free. Then I hear about Nash Security and Investigation, a private detective agency that helped exonerate a wrongfully convicted man after thirty-nine years in prison. The problem? They’ve already taken on the one pro-bono case they’ll accept this year.
Leo. . . . I’m this close to finishing law school—and never working another day at my dad’s P.I. office—when Cora Hollis walks through the door. She’s got a box of files, a handful of leads, and an independent streak a mile wide. She fascinates me and I can’t say no. Suddenly I’m volunteering to help her find a missing witness who could be the key to her brother’s case. But nothing is what it seems and giving in to the attraction between us could be more dangerous than finding the real murderer.
Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.
Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him . . . because my love could get us both killed.
As always I will first thank Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of these books so that we could bring you these reviews.
I will be doing things a bit different with this review as I feel it can apply to both books just the same. I loved the characters in both sets of books and the struggles that they went through (well most of them) to be where they are at at that point in their lives. Now both sets of books have a lot of romantic as well as familial love which is fantastic cause it shows how close these two siblings are. And how intertwined their lives get when they are both at Nash Security. I also liked how Leo’s father takes both of siblings on and loves them as if they were his own children when their own parents prove to be useless in helping the family heal. Both these books have its fair share of action and adventure as well, which makes them exciting reads.
I give both books 5 investigative kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
