Sparks fly when Chance meets tall, sexy Xav at a Wilmington bar and they have the hottest one-nighter of their lives. But Chance doesn't do repeats, Xav seems detached, and they go their separate ways without a word. Later, when closeted assistant district attorney C. Evan "Chance" Fairchild meets Dare's Landing's newest deputy sheriff, Xavier "Xav" Constantine, Evan isn't only wary. He's irritated as hell.
Xavier is a former FBI agent turned deputy sheriff who is hot on the trail of a South American child prostitution ring. Evan is fighting to put an end to rampant cocaine trafficking and chafing under the thumb of an election-hungry boss. When someone tries to kill the 11-year-old witness who holds the key to both their investigations, they're forced to work together as they put their lives on the line to protect him. As Chance and Xav collide in the heat of a sweltering North Carolina summer, dodging bullets and chasing bad guys isn't the only action going on.

Heart-wrenching sexy mystery suspense
Gripping, chilling, sexy
I think it compared some to the Cole McGinnis Mysteries by Rhys Ford
I don't think so.
The book kept me on the edge of my seat. I held my breath a few times and yes I cried some as well.
The forward and Author's note at the beginning of the book sent chills down my spine. This book is a work of fiction but based on some actual events and things officers deal with.
I need to warn you that there are some very graphic descriptions of child sexual abuse and slave trafficking (which take place off-page) that are particularly gut wrenching.
Chance meets Xav at a bar and sparks fly. Little does he know that Xav is the new deputy working on a missing children's case . Xav is just as surprised when Chance walks in introduced as Evan, Assistant DA working on drug trafficking.
I am not going to tell you more since it will be spoilers and I want you to enjoy the mystery as it unravels.
The characters are intense, sexy, some funny and all fit their parts so well. the story is a good mystery suspense with lots of twists and turns. There is a little bit of romance between the two main characters and it is explosive when they do come together.
If you like Mystery/suspense, harsh topics, and some hot man-sex you will love this book.
Fantastic story with an okay narration
