Lieutenant Sarah Carmichael, NYPD, has a new case on her hands. With the help of her partner, Detective Amy Jones, Sarah must locate and apprehend the "Sex Slayer": a new serial killer who has emerged in the back streets of New York - a suspected sex worker who takes her own unsuspecting clients as victims. As the string of murders become more and more difficult to solve, Sarah must navigate her way through crime scenes wiped clean of evidence as well as the unwelcome involvement of the devilishly handsome Special Agent Travis Stone; who seems more than eager to forget that Sarah is happy with another man.
Sharyn Jaeger pulls together murder, mystery, romance, and erotica in Deadly Climax; where there's a killer on the loose and common views of morality are twisted and challenged.

I was provided a copy of Deadly Climax in exchange for an honest review. The book was interesting and I enjoyed the concept. I think for the first novel writing by the duo that makes up Sharyn Jaeger it was a great first attempt. I do have some suggestions that I think would help improve the next book. First was the formatting, I received a paperback version and I have no idea if this was rectified in the digital version. However, this was making me wonky. In the chapters, it was common that the scene would stop and then the next paragraph would pick up hours later. This was confusing and disrupted the flow of the read. If a new chapter isn’t started, then I would suggest some type of break between those paragraphs, may I suggest. *************** I found that the story could be a tad wordy and repetitive, but that is common with new authors. Example, we were told that Travis’s feet on Sarah’s desk annoyed her the first time he did it. It doesn’t need to be explained again. I enjoyed all the details given on the clothes and it helped paint a great overall picture in my head of what everyone wore. At the same time the characters were two dimensional and Sarah was the worst, her personality never developed fully. I would have also liked to get more motivation behind Lucy Lust, other than she needs money. Money for what? While the details on the clothes were terrific, the love scenes were lackluster. For this to be considered an erotica, in my mind, detailed pages need to be spent on love scenes not a couple of chapters. I would like to say then ending was a surprise but it wasn’t. There were too many clues dropped for it to be a surprise. I don’t like that in a story. I would have much rather it been a huge whammy at the end of the book that knocked my socks off. Overall, the concept was good but the delivery could have been better...Sara
Sharyn Jaeger is the pen name for the collaboration of 2 sisters, Shanna Daley Nelson and Taryn Daley. This is their debut novel with another in the works soon. Lieutenant Sarah Carmichael is charged with investigating a possible serial killer so-called Sex Slayer. This killer is a suspected sex worker who is killing her own clients. As more murders occur, each is more frustrating than the last. There are no clues, no DNA, no witnesses. On top of being involved in an almost impossible crime to solve, is the arrival of FBI Special Agent Travis Stone. Even though she's involved with a man she loves, Stone doesn't seem ready to let that stop him from his attraction to Sarah. There's mystery, romance, and erotica all rolled into a twisted story. WARNING: EXTREME GRAPHIC SEXUAL SITUATIONS I was not impressed at the very beginning of this one. I thought it was going to be 99% sex and very little story ... and even though I don't mind some spice in my stories, this one did not seem to be my cup of tea. BUT ... the farther I got into the book, the better the story became. If the sexual scenes didn't do anything to enhance the story, I skipped over them. Sarah is one touch cop .. well able to take care of herself in any situation. Her boyfriend, Wes, is rich, handsome and the son of the NYC Mayor. The biggest problem in their relationship is that Sarah will never measure up to Wes' mother's expectations. Wes is a sweetheart ... he will do anything to please Sarah ..anything at all. Detective Amy Jones is Sarah's partner and good friend. even though Amy is an exceptional cop in her own right, Sarah treats her more as an assistant and not a partner. Amy .. grab me a cup of coffee and meet me in the conference room. Amy ... go fetch those files so I can go over them. Agent Stone is a handsome man with a grin and a sense of humor that just won't quit. He's also dedicated to his job and usually always gets his man ..or woman, as the case may be. The ending is a shocker! Never even occurred to me! That alone was well worth reading the entire book. Many thanks to the author(s) and Word Slinger Publicity, who provided an ARC in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Great Read!! Bought the book for my mom who then gave it to my sister who then told me I had to read it. I'm glad I did. What a page turner and thrilling read. Highly recommend it if you like twists and turns.
