Florida private investigator and ex-cop Ric Alvarado's life is spiraling out of control. His beautiful new girl Friday, Annie Dugan, is far more interested in fieldwork than filing, and despite Ric's best efforts to ignore the attraction, sparks are flying between them. Then one of Ric's clients turns femme fatale and tries to gun down an innocent man. Thanks to quick thinking and even quicker reflexes, Ric comes to the rescue, only to learn he's done a very good deed for some very bad people. Suddenly Ric finds himself deep undercover with Annie, working for notorious crime boss Gordon Burns. One mistake from Ric's painfully inexperienced partner and they're both dead. FBI agent Jules Cassidy's life isn't in much better shape. For years the FBI has been trying to prove Gordon Burns's ties to terrorist activity. Now, thanks to Ric and Annie, Jules has found a way into the lion's den. But in the course of his investigation he comes face-to-face with Robin Chadwick, the charismatic but self-destructive and closeted movie star for whom Jules feels a powerful attraction. Robin's in town promoting his latest film--and Gordon Burns is a star-struck movie buff. With Robin and Jules's help, Ric and Annie are soon entrenched in Burns's organization, surrounded by killers who may already have executed an FBI infiltrator. Before long the couple realizes that many more lives besides their own will be at stake if they make a false move. As the heat between them reaches dangerous levels, so do the risks they're willing to take--in the line of duty, for the sake of loyalty, and in the name of something that runs even deeper.

This was a great book but I can't give it the 5 stars because she made this book more about Ric and Annie. It should have been Jules and Robin in the lead. I also didn't like that there love scenes kept getting cut out. I absolutly love Jules and Robin. The chemistry between them is off the charts magical. I want more of them!!!

(5 stars) When I read the initial blurb on this book, I wasn't sure whether I would like it, but it was excellent! All of the main characters are the smart, strong, yet flawed men and women that I love from Brockmann's books. I'm happy for Ric and Annie, but I'm ecstatic for Jules and Robin! I'm excited for the next Troubleshooters book (as usual) and especially interested to see how Jules' career progresses from here. I'm also curious about Martell and enjoyed his perspective on things. The plot had so many twists and turns, I can't imagine how she comes up with the ideas. There were one or two moments that had me in tears, but mostly the out-loud-laughter sticks with me.
