Every night Detective Devan Burke drives through the Naughty Latte espresso bar. Bikini barista Luci Lombart gives him what he wants, coffee poured into a rich fantasy life. Her innocent smile reminds him of a time before he used a cane to walk. When her latte stand is robbed, the suspect escapes but takes her purse with her personal info with him. Devan fears he may come after Luci and complete the interrupted attack.
Luci is careful not to let anyone get too close, especially not the handsome detective in a violent profession. But Luci's drawn to Devan, a wounded soul with a big heart. Committed to always be self-reliant, to never be under anyone's control, Luci is determined to finish her medical degree with or without her barista job. With her holistic training, is she the one who can heal Devan inside and out?

nothing, I enjoyed the story
I found the story very interesting
I enjoyed the book and actually listened to another book of Jennifer Conner on my trip
I especially enjoyed how the relationship between the hero and heroine grew, and how their relationship changed them on a personal level.
Luci, the barista. I like the way she strived to overcome past troubles. I like her determination in changing her future in a positive way. Her optimism was exactly what the hero, Devlin, needed.
She's how I imagined Luci sounded.
It held my interest and I liked the feel of "being there" at the end when Luci was in danger and Devlin had to overcome any personal hesitation if he hoped to help.
I found the information on Russian tattoos quite interesting. The story is well paced with lots of action. Shot in the Dark has something for everyone: romance, suspense, humor and likeable characters.
