When art imitates death . . . As part of the FBI's elite Apostles team, bomb and weapons specialist Evie Jimenez knows playing it safe is not an option. Especially when tracking a serial killer like the Angel Bomber. He calls himself an artist-using women as his canvas and state-of-the-art explosives as his brush. His art lives and breathes, and with the flick of a switch . . . dies. Now as the clock ticks down to his next strike, Evie faces an altogether different challenge: billionaire philanthropist and art expert Jack Elliott, who's made it clear he doesn't care for Evie's wild-card tactics. Jack never imagined the instant heat for the fiery Evie would explode his cool and cautious world-and make him long to protect her. But as Evie and Jack get closer to the killer's endgame, they will learn that safety and control are all illusions. For their quarry has set his sight on Evie for his final masterpiece . . .

## Good suspense but lacking in the romance department. First of all, what I really liked was that the heroine was a badass. She was highly trained and knew how to do her job well. In addition to that she was caring and playful. Another thing I liked was following along with the clues like Criminal Minds. The crime drama aspect was stellar and kept me turning the pages as quickly as possible. What I didn't like: the hero and heroine knew each other for a week, slept together twice (implied not played out) and all of a sudden the heroine is professing her love and that she wants to have kids with him. Say what? That did not mesh with her personality at all. I don't believe for one second that she would've acted that way. Not to mention there seemed to be a big hole in their relationship. Another thing that really pissed me off was the instant forgiveness which I detest. After the hero's "betrayal", the heroine was mad for like 2 minutes but then "it's ok" and kisses him. Once again that went completely against character. All in all, if you are looking for a crime drama ALONE then this fits the bill. If you are like me and want romance with characters who have amazing chemistry ALONG with suspense, then you are out of luck.
I want to be Evie when i grow up!!! Wonderful unique characters, i loved meeting both Evie and Jack.
