Author: Cherry Adair
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Synopsis: In the same pulse-pounding style as Maya Banks and Kresley Cole, New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair delivers a sizzling erotic romance about a sexy billionaire who’s on the run—and the hit-man-turned-handyman who’s supposed to kill her.
Sex with a stranger. Learn to drive. Learn to cook. Learn to pole dance. Sex under the stars. Buy a truck. These are just a few of the things on Amelia Wentworth’s bucket list, but as the CEO and face of a multi-billion-dollar cosmetic empire, she’s never quite found the time to do them.
Until, after a series of accidents, Amelia discovers that someone wants her dead. But who? And why? She has no time for questions as she changes her name to Mia, buys a secluded fixer-upper near the Louisiana bayou where no one will recognize her, and starts checking things off her bucket list like there’s no tomorrow—which there might not be.
Meanwhile, Cruz Barcelona is a hit man who’s promised himself this will be his last job. Then he’ll take the money and move to a warm, sunny place where he doesn’t have to hide anymore. But when Cruz goes undercover to Mia’s ramshackle house, he starts to realize there’s far more to this poor-little-rich-girl than he thought—and he starts to fall for her. Which is going to make his job a whole lot harder…
This was a very good book! It was entertaining from the start, and had smart, colorful characters that drew me in very quickly. I loved Mia/Amelia's sarcastic humor, and Cruz was one of those hot, overbearing, bossy men that make you hate him in all the right ways. And on top of all of that there was also a very interesting mystery scenario going on. Someone is trying to kill Mia/Amelia and for most of the book we don't know who or why. I loved the fact that Cruz was actually a hit man that was supposed to kill her, but after a hilarious "introduction" between the two, he just can't bring himself to hurt Mia. From start to finish this book was great. I definitely recommend it!
