When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven't spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what's more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.
Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she's drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she's forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?
This book is kinda iffy for me. I do love a dark romance story. It’s pure book crack for me. This one however is more of a romantic suspense for me. I can tell Laurelin is a good writer. Great even. But this one is to much sex, graphic sex that is. For me it sometimes over shadowed the story for me to enjoy it. The beginning of this book felt a bit rushed for me too. I would of liked a little more build up before he met her. Emily was way to distracted for someone who was suppose to be saving her friend. While this book may not have been for me, I do think you would enjoy it if you can separate reality from just a story, and can see the gray area the lies between black and white.
