The story is fast paced, hard, ballsy, and frustrating (but in a good way). The voice, the tone, of the story had a no-nonsense, hardened cop feel I just loved. I can't help but like Sydney, who is about the most hardheaded person I've ever met. She is everything that I just described the story as. She is sexy and fun and I find it hilarious that every guy she's encountered so far in the book wants to screw her brains out. And I loved that when the male lead turns her down, she decides to go and boink his friend.
Like a good mystery, the story keeps you guessing. The author keeps the tension ramped the entire time, either with the case or with the ever growing sexual tension between Kade and Sydney.
The only true fault I had with the book was with the first dead body - the floater. The body was too new to be a floater. Why was the skin slack? A body that's a couple of days old is entering the first few days of decomp. Bodies don't float until 8-10, under rare conditions starting at 7. The body's skin doesn't become slack until after gas build up has dissipated, which is long after the floating stage. So why was it called a floater? Why didn't the coroner correct that assumption? Why was she called a coroner when the city of Philadelphia has a Medical Examiner's office on 321 University Ave? Why did she put the coroner's office in the same building as the police station when there is no medical examiner's office in the same building as a police station? The closest I could find was a University Police Department. But those are minor things that would probably only matter to you if you either lived in Philly or had experience in law enforcement.
As a word of warning, the ARC copy I received had head hopping. While this doesn't bother me, I know it bothers some, so I felt it only right I include that in my review.
In closing, this book had me glued to the "pages" the entire way. Even with the initial inconsistency in the crime scene, this is definitely a five star read.
