When Tristan Riley drags Lillian Maddox onto the dance floor at Teplo, he intends only to protect his cover… at least that's what he tells himself. But the lovely Lillian would tempt a saint, and Tristan is far from a gentleman. Beneath the bright lights of the Vetrov family's dangerous club, the weary DEA agent finds himself captivated by the ballerina, coaxing them both into a reckless, erotic encounter.
But Tristan isn't prepared for the intense connection between him and Lillian, or for the fallout of their tryst. In a matter of days, their lives careen wildly off course, catapulting them both into a deadly game of hide and seek with the Vetrov family and one of Mexico's deadliest drug cartels.
Trying to keep his hands to himself while working alongside Lillian to stop Anton Vetrov's deadly new drug proves almost impossible for Tristan, but what choice does he have when being with her might get her killed? He should know: his entire family was murdered by people just like Anton.
When the stakes are raised and innocent lives are lost, will Tristan be able to let go of the guilt, or will he destroy his chance at happiness with Lillian before it ever truly begins?
My Thoughts - Story
I wouldn’t have had the pleasure of reading Ms. Morgen’s work if not for the Blog Tour…and DAMN…I’m so happy I had the opportunity because now I have a new series I can’t wait to read!
I enjoyed the storyline of this book and was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The connection between Tristan and Lillian was mesmerizing and the back story of Lillian was fantastic.
Ms. Morgen did a spectacular job developing these characters and don’t even get me started with the steamy sex scenes…especially the dancing these two did! WOW!
Lillian was a famous ballerina who lost everything from an accident – just getting her independence back, she visits the Teplo Club to watch the dancers until a stranger grabs her to dance with him. With the way he supports her on the dance floor, she once again can let her body go to feel the music. Tristan is attracted to her and can’t help himself from wanting more.
But there are so many obstacles in the way to have anything else from her. He isn’t really who he poses to be and with all the skeletons in each of their closets, the future looks bleak.
