It separated AIR Agent, football star and multi-millionaire playboy Corbin Blue from his team. Waking while the culprits are hovering over their handiwork, Blue rouses enough to kill one and hear that his teammates are alive before he can be burned alive.
Not knowing who to trust, Blue heads to Evangeline Black a doctor and ex-AIR agent. She thinks he’s a he-slut and he thinks she’s a judgmental bitch. Ordinarily, Evie is a female Blue avoids but he needs a doctor and a place to heal so he can find his team and find out what happened. Blue knows he can trust Evie, whether they like each other or not.
Meanwhile having heard about the explosion on the news, Evie speeds to the hospital to intercept her father, Michael, but is unable to gain access. Finding a nearly unrecognizable Blue in her house when she returns, Evie nurses him back to health hoping to get answers about the bombing. Though Blue has no information to share the two agree to work together to find the answers they both need.
Blue shows Evie skills AIR doesn’t know he has and having been an agent for a short time, Evie showed off plenty of her own skills to her temporary partner. Gratitude for the harbor of each other kicks their mutual appreciation into the realm of mutual attraction. They each had a fun inner dialogue going to berate and praise progress/lack of progress and why/why about their budding relationship.
While it rivals [book:Last Kiss Goodnight|13310549] beautiful cover it does not follow the minimal sex but not a YA read rule. The books should be read in order as this outing answers questions raised earlier. The action, suspense and romance here were all great and coupled with the snarky banter between these likable characters makes this fast and evenly-paced read lighter than its predecessor.
