Publisher's summary

From New York Times bestselling author Tijan comes a raw, tempestuous romance between the criminal underworld and a parole officer that paints a thin line between right and wrong.

When Jess Montell meets Trace West at a hockey game, she doesn’t know his name or occupation. What she does know is there’s an instant attraction that’s impossible to ignore—or forget. And forgetting is exactly what she wants to do when she learns he’s not just a successful Wall Street suit but the heir to one of New York’s biggest Mafia families.

The last thing Trace needs is a romantic anything with law enforcement, and parole officer Jess has trouble written all over her. Too bad he likes trouble. Especially when it’s a brunette bombshell with attitude and legs for days.

She’s an absolute spitfire, and he wants to stoke that flame.

Trace didn’t ask for the Mafia life. Jess doesn’t want any part of it. They both know it’s safer to stay away, but the temptation is too hard to resist—no matter how great the danger.

Good story but…

This is a good story but there’s a cliffhanger. I’m invested in this and can’t wait for book 2.

3.5 ⭐️ MIXED FEELINGS & CLIFFHANGER BAD NEWS

Wall Street Tycoon Tristan (Trace to his friends) West had one foot firmly rooted in the underworld’s dark and deadly with his Uncle being the Head of the Family.. and the rest of his body was being pulled and yanked in that direction too being the reigning heir to the father-figure he respected and loved. Parole Officer Jess had a drunk abusive Mother who wished she’d never been born.. but she had her empowering day job that strengthened her, gave her purpose and enabled her to share an apartment with her best friend. However, from the moment they meet, Tijan has their worlds clashing, colliding and changing as they go through a life-altering, opposites attract, angsty, slow-burn that melts with attraction but hardens again with Jess’ resolve not to ’go there’ with the possessive man with ‘bad news’ written all over him. Push feelings slowly change to pull.. characters develop too, but the drama, angst and web of a plot continues as their lives are thrown together time and time again.. and the fallout is bad.

I loved the moody cover, Joe and CJ’s narration was great too and the plot should’ve pulled me in.. but for me, the relationship build was well-developed but it also seemed so very drawn out and long with unnecessary fillers. And I just didn’t feel the all-consuming passion and chemistry.. or the hunger or heat that should follow.. it just flashed then was gone. Off-page scenes were annoying too and they didn’t give the relationship depth. However, just when I was sighing and wondering if they would ever.. ever.. ever be together, the rug was yanked away from beneath Jess’ feet and the storyline injected some much-needed action that flipped her world.. and woke me right up. Yes, it woke me up with suspense and drama and just in time for the nasty shocking CLIFFHANGER that binds me to book 2.

Worth a credit? Yes probably it could build to something better in Book 2.

You can't go wrong with CJ Bloom and Joe Arden!!

This book was on listen and read for on kindle unlimited with audible and I have seen it around so I thought I would give it a go. I love the dual narration of this book because this audio narrators are some of my favs. I thought the middle was a little long but the beginning and end were both really enjoyable. Will be reading the second one at some point.

4 1/2 Stars

As always, C.J. and Joe's performances were spot on.
Story drug a bit but there was enough suspense for a romance story to hold your attention.

Best on Audio!

Carly & Joe are by far my favorite voice actors and when you get the two together there is a lot of anticipation and pressure for greatness on the storyline. For the title being a dirty business, it was not that dirty, well the topics are but the detail of the writing is lacking making you feel it’s more of a wrong than a dirty. Plus, I was left wondering if these two were sleeping together or sleeping over, but maybe that was the point? However, it will be following this story when book two it’s available. Oh, cliff hanger!!

My first by this author

Overall a great read. Wasn't a fan of Jess always showing her badge, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Seeing a man as powerful as Trace want something like Love was a turn on all around.
