From USA Today Bestselling author J.L. Berg comes a sexy standalone about love, lies and every dirty little thing in between.
It wasn’t just a job.
It was my way back to the top.
After losing my position as a journalist for one of the biggest news publications in the world,
I knew I’d do anything to get it back.
Even if it meant breaking a few hearts to get there.
She was the hottest author in the country. Known only by a pen name, there wasn’t a person alive who wasn’t dying to discover her true identity.
And I’d figured it out.
Her real name was Kate O’Malley and not only did I plan on finding her, but I fully intended on learning every dirty secret she had and exploiting it for my own gain.
But I underestimated my prey.
I didn’t anticipate how her words would intoxicate me, or how the curves of her body would consume me.
I never meant to fall in love.
And now I had a choice to make.
Do I give up everything for the woman I set out to destroy, or walk away, making me the biggest fraud of all?

I immediately felt a connection with Kate–I loved her inner voice especially, and wanted to be her new BFF and head Kate/Laura cheerleader–but Killian took a little more work. The first few chapters he narrated? I was not a fan. At all. But he slowly grew on me, and I have to admit the first-person POV probably helped out her a whole lot, and by the end even though I knew he’d made some huge, huge mistakes I really, really wanted him to be forgiven for them.
Ms. Berg has her work cut out wit Killian’s brother Liam, though, the upcoming hero of the next book–he’s a great guy personally–I loved him and Killian together, and he provides a much-needed butt kicking when necessary–but he’s got seriously loose morals and needs find something more–what’s the word I’m looking for here? Oh, yes, legal to do with his impressive skill set. She does an excellent job here, because yeah, I need to know what he’s been up to, but jeez, he’s gonna take some work.
He’s definitely no Killian. Or Kate, for that matter.
Of course, I may never look at cannoli the same again. Or chocolate chip ice cream. Or chocolate sauce…
Yikes. Must distract self by thinking about Liam’s book a bit more… 😉
Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A-
