Jay Reynolds had her life all planned out until an accident changed everything. When she ends up working in the Medical Examiner’s office under the tutelage of Olivia Price, things become complicated for both of them. Olivia is not happy at being forced to take on Jay under unusual circumstances and Jay is moving further away from her dream of being a top trauma surgeon. I really liked both main characters and seeing how they dealt with each other and how their simmering attraction played out. Jay was strong, capable and determined and not about to give up in any sphere of her life. Olivia was brilliant and stunning and Jay could not resist. But she had demons from her past and the question was whether she could ever get past them. The backstory of gang warfare and the minor characters really made this an interesting story and had me hooked. Radclyffe is a favourite author of mine and I can always rely on her to keep me enthralled. As always the sex scenes are extremely hot and will not fail to please. I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
