My Rating

In the latest eBook original novel in Ruthie Knox’s scorching-hot Camelot series, a no-strings fling looks an awful lot like falling in love—or flirting with disaster.

Fresh out of a fiasco of a marriage, Katie Clark has retreated to her hometown to start over. The new Katie is sophisticated, cavalier, and hell-bent on kicking butt at her job in her brother’s security firm. But on her first assignment—digging up the truth about the stalker threatening a world-famous singer-songwriter—Katie must endure the silent treatment from a stern but sexy partner who doesn’t want her help . . . or her company.

Sean Owens knows that if he opens his mouth around Katie, she’ll instantly remember him as the geeky kid who sat behind her in high school. Silence is golden, but he can’t keep quiet forever, not with Katie stampeding through their investigation. It’s time for Sean to step up and take control of the case, and his decade-old crush. If he can break through Katie’s new found independence, they just might find they make a perfect team—on the road, on the job, and in bed.

"I kicked Jeff Myers in the shins all the time during recess. He never understood." 
"That explains why my scalp hurts." 
"Your scalp?" 
"You pulled my hair. Bit me, too. I think you might love me." 
"Did I? I'm sorry. I didn't even realize. I was too busy getting screwed so hard, I lost all sense of reality."

I had some trouble with this book since the beginning, I really wanted to love it but I couldn't. I don't think there was enough romance in it, Judah was so evasive about why he hired Katie's brother's company. Judah was a famous musician who had a fan that was sending him threatening messages so he hired them for that but he couldn't tell Katie why he wanted her there and he was talking about her hora and how much he needed her but never said why, he was so annoying. Katie and Sean followed Judah to different cities accomplishing nothing, it felt like a wild goose chase. 

I also felt like this book was too long, there was a lot of dialog going on in the character's heads and that made it hard for me to stay interested. 

I did like the fact that Sean and Katie knew each other before in high school. When they finally got together their time in the sheets was super hot.

In the end I feel like I didn't get the connection I was looking for with the characters or the story and that sucks cause I really wanted to like it.
