Liberal talk show host Valentine Cross and police detective Jake Sutton have a history. they enjoyed great sex but their different views on certain issues drove them apart. Now six months later they're back in each other's lives when Jack thinks Val is hiding his suspect.
Sometimes finding an erotic romance with anything besides lots of sex scenes strung together is tough, so I'm glad I got to read this story. It actually has a plot and a suspenseful one at that.
Jack is sexy and you hope that he and Val can put aside their differences so they can enjoy what you know will be a great future for them.
The sex scenes are hot and placed in just the right spots in this story. Secondary characters add their own color too. Dialogue is snappy and the pacing fast. The author did a great job with creating three dimensional characters which you know are right for one another from the first time you meet them in this story.
The story is a quick read for the upcoming summer reading season.

Oh, what a great read. The voice in Cross My Heart is very real, as though it's someone talking to you-at least that's how it came across to me. The language is up-to-date and I settled into the tale right from the get-go.
I loved the tension between Valentine and Jack-they split up a while back, for deeper reasons than we're is aware of at first, and the "Ah" moment is revealed, giving Jack an insight into Valentine's thoughts and emotions. If only they had been aired earlier, these two wouldn't have had a horrible few months apart. But, I liked that aspect. It's real life-people don't always say what they mean, how they really feel, for fear of being seen as weak. Valentine is a tough cookie on the outside, so I understood her reasoning completely.
Jack. Now he's a sexy one. He adores Valentine, simple as that-wish he adored me, the sexy-azzed, want-him-for-myself beast-and once he asks her to help him on a case, the sparks start flying once more. They've always had chemistry, and absence made their hearts grow fonder and their lust for one another stronger.
As well as the fabulous dynamics going on between the hero and heroine, there's a great storyline involving Valentine's job as a radio talk show host, which has led her to knowing information Jack needs. It's tense, it's fast-paced, and it's a book you don't want to miss if you enjoy biting your nails while reading. I nearly bit mine off completely. My manicurist is going to have a hard time sorting these babies out and will kick my azz!
Advice-wear rubber gloves when reading.
If you want an alpha hero with a tender heart-and my god he's tender. And sexy, sweet, yummy, want him, want him, want him-and a heroine who is strong yet vulnerable, a kick-azz plot and a superb writing voice, Cross My Heart is definitely for you.
