Overview

Part 1 in the Devereaux Chapter - Standalone Contemporary Romance

Billionaire heiress Emma Devereaux has been living a safe-yet-mundane existence in Georgia for too long, but when she learns her sister, Joslyn, has been arrested, she heads to New York City to find out what really happened. Unfortunately, as an unemployed debutante, she’s not exactly qualified to be leading an investigation. But help is at hand in the form of the handsome, former military man Jace Lance who happens to be the one who got her sister arrested in the first place. 

Jace thinks Emma is crazy for even considering working with him since he’s the one who stopped Joslyn from killing his former client. However, he can’t deny that the sexy southerner is in over her head when her tycoon cousins try to hire him to make sure Emma doesn’t find out the truth about what really caused her sister’s murderous actions. 

As they begin to uncover the truth together –and get to know each other intimately – it becomes clear that the more answers they get, the more danger Emma is in. Jace is determined to protect her, but how can he keep her safe when her whole family is in on the conspiracy?

Author's Note: This was previously book 4 in the Billionaires in the City Series (Trusting The Boss). Since the last four books all focused on one family, I wanted to break up the series and make sure the Devereauxs really had their chance to shine.

Lots of plot twists, enough danger and sexual tension to keep u turning the pages. Not to hot or sleezy. Would reccomend.

Good story! Some sex but not crazy amounts. Wish there was a little for follow up. No cliffhanger but still have questions.

Good read but I felt like it left out key points in the story. Like more details about the car and who did it type of thing.

Emma visited her cousins in New York and while there planed on finding out what made her sister, Joslyn, attempt to murder Victoria Green, a wealthy businesswoman. Even though Emma has several bachelor's degrees, she's not very smart about how she's going to do this. She thinks she can just walk into Victoria's office and ask to speak to her. That didn't work. She met Jace outside Victoria's office and upon learning he's a security consultant tries to hire him to help with her investigation. Jace tried to get Emma to stop looking into this but wasn't successful. Things get tricky for him when her cousins hire him to cover up some information Emma could find while investigating. Then they find out that Joslyn had been blackmailing someone and that someone is not taking it well. Go figure. I liked Emma because she tried to be sexy and flirty around Jake but didn't think she could pull it off. Apparently she did. She really thought she had everything under control but she had no idea she was walking into situations she couldn't handle. Lucky for her Jace could handle them. Jace was a very competent security consultant but I didn't like how he took money from Emma and her cousins for the same job. He also hid a lot of details from Emma. I understand why he felt he had to but it was hard to like him. This was an enjoyable romance but the ending was a bit rushed.

But where is the next book? Don't see Michael's story on B&N. Just Luke's. Hate when they do that.

The book was good but they left out so many pieces of the car and what the cousins had done to figure out the "who done it" was disappointing! Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Hopefully this one is better and not so vague! And would have been nice to know what happened with the psycho sister
