WOW! I'm still trying to catch my breath. AWESOME read! Maureen Smith has yet to disappoint me, but this was far better than I could have ever imagined. Talk about catching you from the first page and keeping you turning the pages 'til the very end. The storyline was very well developed and kept you guessing until the very end. All the characters played a memorable roles within the novel, keeping you wondering who could have done it. The romance and heated attraction between Garrison and Imani was simply breathtaking. Could not put the book down, read all 426 pages in 1 1/2 days. You will not be disappointed if you pick this novel up!

Loved the book. And the dangerous lover. I cheated and read the end first -- no help. Then read the first chapter, still no help. The back of the book, a clue, but not what I expected. Noticed the great writing style. Very experienced writer, including the need for a dictionary every now and then. Listened to it discussed at a book club meeting, but couldn't remember the outcome when I started reading. Totally surprised about who was the bad guy. The clues kept me accusing different characters -- not letting on to the truth. This book kept me reading with vigor. Could not put it down until I reached EACH of the climaxes -- that were MULTIPLE!!! (;>) She is that lady in the streets, but a freak in the bed! Romance, suspense, necessary dialogue, fun interactions, and attractive characters. Redefines the overachieving women, her wit, and her choice of relationships, or lack there of. Some parts about the bad guy are a little 'text-bookey.' Typically I prefer a demon or witch in a love story.

This book was really a romatic suspense. My sister kept bugging me to read it. She says 'If you don't you're missing out,' and she was right. You felt all these emotions, you want to laugh cry, and sometimes it made you scared off your pants. This book really shows the power of love, and I loved the bond between Imani and Garrison.

This book had the right amount of intrigue and romance. The characters sizzled off the page. I did not want to put it down. A definite must read.
