Finley Gallagher has a business to run, a sexy-as-sin neighbor to avoid and no time for everyone’s fascination with the city’s mysterious vigilante who’s putting criminals in their place—until she’s attacked. With no one else to turn to, she’s forced to rely on the two men she’d rather not have anything to do with. One hides who he is, unleashing her deepest fantasies from the shadows, while the other slowly disarms her with one devastating smile after another.
Trace Fairbanks is determined to do whatever it takes to keep the streets safe, even if it means leading a double life. He’s wanted Finley for months, and now that he knows she’s more into his alter ego than he ever realized, he’s willing to blur the line between fantasy and reality to prove he’s the only hero she’ll ever need. But getting the girl might not be as hard as keeping her alive if he can’t trust her with the truth before it’s too late.
I just love Sydney Somers writing. It’s so wonderful. It keeps me engaged and devouring the book. I mean, have you read her Pendragon Gargoyles series?? I blew through them very quickly, they are that good!
Okay. Now that I’ve gone on a little rant, let’s carry on to the review. 🙂
I can say I have never read a book with the trope of the hero being a vigilante or super hero with a super power like in comic books. For this alone, I knew the book was going to be good. Finley was great to read, but she was out-shown by Trace. I mean, who can beat out a FREAKING SUPER HOT VIGILANTE?? Some scenes were lighting up my kindle with the sparks flying between the characters. I enjoyed the depth we were able to see in the two. It added a wonderful nugget to the story.
My only complaint is that I wish it was slightly longer. Of course, I can also see if I beg her enough she’ll cave and write another book, turning this into a series! *wink, wink* *nudge, nudge*
