✯✯4 Pretty Crazy Stars!!!✯✯
This is the first book in Tara Oakes new series. I never read any of her other books before. So, she's new for me and I am a fan. The fact that everything was based around something that had happened in her previous series and I wasn't lost. That totally won me over!!
Jessica is working on her father's Senate re-election campaign and working hard. Then, someone tries to blackmail her father. And, they are using Jess as the bait. Literally! So, she calls the one guy who always told her he'd be there for her. Jess doesn't want to see him. It may be months since they've seen each other. But, it won't matter and she knows it.
Chris works as one of the FBI's undercover agents. He has rose to the top and really quick. Unfortunately, while he was working to get to the top he lost Jess in the process. He was shocked to see she called and needed his help. When they see each other the sparks and chemistry are still there. Chris tries pushing Jess buttons and she trying to keep strictly business.
Jess explains that her father is being blackmailed. Chris wasn't too shocked because he knows exactly who and what her father is. But, when she sows him the pictures his heart sinks. It's pictures of Jessica when she went undercover as a stripper and helped him solve his biggest case and got his promotion.
Chris plans on doing whatever he can to find out who's behind this. Jess plans on going with Chris to help figure all this out. There time together was far from easy. Both are realizing just how good they are together. They both know that their main reason to them ending was Chris's job coming first before everything and everyone. Both are trying to fight their feelings but it's proving harder and harder. These 2 should both be in the FBI because man can Jess do some awesome undercover work and investigating. Unfortunately, she's too good!! They realize the blackmailer is coming from a leak in her father's campaign. She also uncovers a bunch about her father and that Chris knew it all along. Can these 2 ever get back to that place where the happiest?
This was an easy and quick read. Tara definitely threw me a bunch of OMG, WTF just happened moments. Which I loved!! Jess I really liked her. She strong, feisty and goes after what she believes. Chris. Man oh man. He can handcuff me ANYTIME!! But, he's good at his job. He has a hard time saying his feelings out loud. But, she can show you how he feels. I am glad I got to read this and am looking forward to the next book.
