He's got a killer to catch and no time for love. Fate has other plans.


Former Army Special Forces Officer Martin "Del" Delano has enough on his hands chasing a serial killer and heading up TASK FORCE HAWAII. He definitely doesn't need the distraction of Emma Mitchell. From the moment they meet, she knocks him off his feet, literally. Unfortunately, she's the best person to have on the team to make the connections to help them catch their killer.

For Emma, it's hard to ignore the lure of a man like him. Tats, muscles and his Harley cause her to have more than a few fantasies about Del. He'd never be interested in a geek like her, but she can't resist toying with him. When she pushes the teasing too far, she ends up in his bed. She convinces herself she can handle it until the moment he steals her heart.

Del can't help falling for the quirky genius. She's smart, funny and there's a sweet vulnerable side to her that only he can see. As Emma gets more involved with the investigation, she becomes the target of the psychopath. When the danger escalates, Del promises to do anything to save the woman who not only captured his heart but also his soul.

I loved this book. I have been waiting on Emma and Del's story since "A Little Harmless Rumor" and I was not disappointed. I loved how Del just gets Emma. He understands her quirks and takes things at her pace. There is romance and intrigue that kept me reading til I had finished it. Melissa Schroeder has been an autobuy for me since her Santini series, but this book has become my new favorite. If you like a hot, sexy read plus a good mystery then this is the book for you. Now I'm ready for the next book, hopefully it'll be Ella and Graeme's story.

An exciting, high energy romantic suspense from the fantastic Melissa Schroeder. Get to know the guys and gals of Task Force Hawaii (a mix between 50 and Major Crimes). I love that there are so many strong women in TFH. TFH is headed by former Army Special Forces Officer Martin “Del” Delano. There are those who are just waiting for him to fail. Failing to solve this murder may just be the ammunition they need. Luckily Del has a secret weapon in quirky genius Emma Mitchell who is under contract to assist in cases like this. The chemistry between them is fantastic and if they don’t kill each other they may just be perfect for each other. The supporting cast is fantastic and I look forward to their stories as well.

Task Force Hawaii is a hit and it is not on TV on Friday night! This has shades and a taste of Hawaii Five O but this has a romance along with it to keep us all happy. Martin "Del" Delano is the head of TFH and they are hunting a serial killer. Emma Mitchell works with the team on contract and she is a genius, literally, but she can see and find patterns that will help narrow down the search for the killer. These two are explosive together and even though Del tries really hard to keep things platonic he gives in. Watching these two fall for each other in the midst of all the pain around them was great. The characters on this team are outstanding and I cannot wait to dig into the rest of the series!

Del and Emma seem to be an unlikely pair, but you can't help what the heart wants. While this is the beginning of a spin off series, you don't need to read the others in order to enjoy this book. Del leads a special task force in Hawaii for higher profile crimes that occur locally. Emma has a special personality and tends to look at things differently than most others. Emma occasionally works under contract when her unique brand of research and investigating are needed. Del has no choice to bring Emma into their current investigation when a beloved missing person turns up murdered after being tortured for quite some time. While it takes the entire team to catch the perpetrator, Del and Emma must navigate their mutual attraction all the while believing the other would rather not have the other around. I really enjoyed the balance of mystery/suspense and romance. The secondary characters were just as intriguing as the H and h. I'm looking forward to reading their stories in the future. I recommend this read. It took me away and I didn't want to put it down. I received a NetGalley copy for review.
