Anneliese Nottingham is a young bridal wear consultant who works hard to stay at the top of her game… until a friendly word to a VIP client lands her in hot water and out of her dream job. Accused of ruining the society wedding of the year, every bridal store door is slammed in her face and she’s desperate to find work or she’ll be out on the street—literally.
Leo McKenzie runs an exclusive detective agency for the rich and famous. His services are in high demand and they don’t come cheap. Ex-Special Forces, muscle-bound and incredibly wealthy, he’s the pillar of tact and discretion. When a case connected to the ‘wedding that never was’ crosses his desk, Leo takes a chance on hiring Anneliese to get the inside scoop.
Leo rejects a bizarre case that comes to the agency’s door, but Anneliese is intrigued and keen to show initiative to her new boss—albeit on her own time—however, working so closely together, the undeniable chemistry between them begins to show. Can the sexy PI and the accidental detective remain professional and focus on their work, or will they throw caution to the wind and succumb to their wanton desires?

At 84 pages long (according to Amazon), this is not a book which you need to set aside a massive amount of time to read. You’ll probably get through it in an hour or so.
But there is quite a lot packed into those 84 pages, and on the whole, I think that it hits just the right note.
The author has created a novella with a reasonable plot, but she has also conjured characters who have some depth to them. Their slightly awkward interactions, the subtle humour, the hints about their backgrounds, all combined to capture my attention and left me wanting more.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Hey, I’m Kate and I’ve always loved reading about strong sassy women like Stephanie Plum, backed up by strong sexy men, of course! I never dreamed one day I’d be writing this stuff, but here I am!
I moved from sunny Florida with my husband and son to the beautiful, green countryside surrounding our home in a tiny village in Northamptonshire, England and I love it!
I like walking… and especially to the village pub, lol! The characters around here give me a lot of ideas for my books and stories I’ve yet to write! It’s going to be fun!
