Chicago cop Brendan Donovan loves the adrenaline rush of his role on a tactical team. So when he's assigned to an undercover job to ferret out the supplier of a new and deadly sex drug, he's thrilled. His partner is Cilla Marini, a detective he'd met recently during a traffic stop. He's intrigued by Cilla, but his sister told him that Cilla doesn't date cops. Which is exactly what they have to pretend to do. Brendan loves a challenge.
Cilla is shocked to find out that Brendan is her mystery partner. After an incident that forced her to transfer from her district and isolated her from her fellow cops, Cilla knows relationships with cops are off the table. But she's spent far too much time thinking about Brendan since he pulled her over for speeding. Now, not only are they working together, they have to pose as a couple to find the source of the sex drug that's already killed several men.
As the action heats up, Cilla and Brendan don't have to pretend they want each other. But when secrets put them both in danger, will they have each other's back? Or will their quarry divide and conquer them before they can find their way to happily ever after?

Brendan is the last single Donovan brother (the others found love in books two, three, and four) and love is the last thing he is looking for when he stops a speeding car driven by detective Cilla Marini. These two end up working undercover together, searching for the person behind a deadly drug responsible for the deaths of five men. I love this series about the Donovan family and book five, Cover Me, is another excellent read. This book, like the others, draws you in and doesn't let go. The writing is so, so good, with great characters and a well-thought-out storyline. The chemistry between Brendan and Cilla is off the charts and the romance is smoking hot. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I was provided with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Excellently written continuation of the Donovan Family series! Brendan’s story is just as wonderful as the others in this series. The characters are well developed, the action intense, the chemistry between Brendan and Priscilla combustible and the story line of two cops going undercover (in more ways than one) a treat to read. Thank you to the author for sending me this book to read and review. I look forward to finding out what will happen to the NEXT member of the Donovan family when his or her story is told!
