Brooklyn Montgomery, daughter of a well-known criminal, just moved into a new apartment. She needed to be closer to downtown because she landed her dream job of becoming an assistant District attorney. Little does she know that the reason for her new job is because a killer is raining down on New York City. The killer is taking out anyone who looks like her, including the last A.D.A., and covering their bodies with thousands of forget-me-nots. Is this a clue to catching the killer or does the killer want to lead Brooklyn to her demise?
Mark Stone, Brooklyn’s childhood friend, is the lead detective in the city. He has been handed the case, but has a limited window until the FBI takes over. While he hunts to find the killer he guards Brooklyn with his life. He knows she has feelings for him, but can the past be overlooked so they can be together after they catch the killer? What happens if they can’t stop the killer in time? Will he catch the killer and capture her heart, or will the final victim be the one he wanted all along, Brooklyn?
This book captured my attention and wouldn’t let me go! I started it and not even an hour later I was finished with it and had a HUGE book hangover! This book is has romance but also the right amount of action to keep your attention. The amount of twists and turns this book gives you, some of them you definitely don’t see coming. I really love how determined and strong Brooklyn is. She knows she is in love with Mark and even though he’s had girlfriends in the past, she has never acted on it or shared her feelings until now. Her heart is broken when she hears what her dad and Mark did but she moves on and stays strong. I mean, she has a murderer chasing her and killing girls who look like her yet she doesn’t falter. This book even has some sexy times that I thought would never happen, totally took me by surprise. This book is definitely worth reading! You will fall in love with the characters and feel yourself being sucked into the story. It also makes you think about all the kids, you weren’t exactly friends yet but still played with. Never know how they feel about you or if they have a mental illness
I opened to him, and he pressed his body against mine, inhaling the moan that left my lips. All five of my senses were being overloaded by him. I could no longer hear anything but the rapid beating of my heart. I tasted coffee and whipped cream on his tongue as I inhaled his manly sandalwood scent. I looked into his eyes when he pulled away. My body burned with the need to touch him everywhere.
“Tell me no,” Mark whispered as he dropped to his knees. I watched in fascination while he untied the bow on my drawstring shorts. I shivered as I watched him pull down my shorts, exposing a pair of black lace underwear.
