The premise of this book intrigued me. The forbidden love between an FBI agent and a woman who is a possible suspect, missing girls and a white slavery ring, yeah, it sounded good. Haas is a new author for me so I was taking a bit a leap here. Didn't really pan out like I thought. It was entertaining but the biggest problem was Mickey, at times, was very idiotic. She bordered on TSTL, and I don't use that term lightly, she's a possible suspect so what does she do she interferes in the investigation, withholds evidence, contaminates a crime scene, and interferes with a witness it's a good thing Graham liked her I would have locked her up. Granted there wouldn't be much of a story without all her screw ups.
Mickey week just keeps getting worse and worse, first her plane gets hijacked only to be thwarted by a gorgeous FBI agent then she finds out her god daughter was kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend, Pete, who is a known white slaver, and now the FBI, in particular the hot FBI agent who saved the day, thinks she played a part in her god daughter's disappearance. Little Becca was kidnapped, she was the third girl to go missing what stood out in her case is that she was the only one who knew the abductor. What made her so special that Pete was willing to risk his whole operation by giving Mickey his real name? Because once the FBI had his real name they were able to piece together everything else.
Overall, it was an okay read. I didn't feel the chemistry between the two characters. The whole forbidden relationship seemed a little forced and Graham showed almost no self control when it came to her. The attraction was visceral but lacked substance. And the ending was a little predictable it still wrapped up nicely though. It wasn't bad the writing well paced, the suspense was satisfactory, and the overall plot was good I just really didn't like Mickey. I would be willing to read more of Haas' books.
