Summary
Logan "Kash" Ryan has spent the last three and a half years working undercover in Tampa Bay, Florida. When a case sends him and his partner to Austin, Texas to follow the trail of a serial killer, their soul focus needs to be on finding the guy before he can find another victim. The last thing Kash needs is the distraction of his beautiful new neighbor, but there's something about her guarded nature and feisty attitude that makes it impossible to stay away from her. Rachel Masters has shielded herself from getting hurt again. But when her new neighbor almost takes her door off with his motorcycle, everything changes. He's arrogant, gorgeous, tattooed and pierced. Everything she knows she should stay away from. Despite the warnings her initial impression has raised, she quickly falls for him and the way he works at breaking down all her walls. But he's hiding something, and after everything that has happened in Rachel's life lately, a guy is the last thing she needs. From the moment Rachel and Kash meet, they stress the friendship-only rule and continue to push their feelings for each other aside. But as their friendship advances, lines start blurring, and soon their reasons for keeping the other at a distance are forgotten. Will Kash be able to maintain focus on the investigation while keeping Rachel safe from his real life - or will it all fall apart right in front of him, and will she run when she finds out everything he has been hiding? --

Review
  • Rachel Masters, beautiful but broken, is a student at the University of Texas and a pro at shielding herself to hide her true feelings. But Logan Kash Ryan can see right through her armor. An undercover cop on assignment, Kash moves into the apartment next door, and little by little the two develop a deep friendship fueled by sarcasm, goofiness, and honesty. Rachel is haunted by two distinct traumatic events in her recent past, but with Kash she finds clarity. Their friendship slowly grows into something more, but just as their love reaches a turning point, an unwelcome suitor comes back into Rachel’s life, and Kash’s undercover mission to catch a serial killer takes a dangerous turn. This first book in a series by McAdams in the new-adult romance subgenre offers a well-developed relationship and genuine romance with plenty of humor as well as scenes of sexual assault and violence. Quickly read and potent, it will leave readers craving the sequel. -- Smith, Patricia (Reviewed 09-15-2013) (Booklist, vol 110, number 2, p42)
  • This novel from “new adult” author McAdams (Taking Chances), which mixes together a suspenseful thriller and lighthearted romance, should please fans of both genres, but may not leave either completely satisfied. Rachel Masters is wary of intimate relationships after the death of her parents and her narrow escape from an attempted rape by her best friend’s cousin—and she’s especially reluctant to get involved with tattooed motorcycle riders like Logan “Kash” Ryan. An affair between Kash and Rachel’s respective roommates locks Rachel out of her apartment one night, however, and results in her going on an impromptu date with Kash. Despite still being traumatized by her past, Rachel can’t stop thinking about Kash’s sexy lip ring. When Kash, who’s also an undercover cop, discovers Rachel is being stalked, he whisks her away for a weekend in a honeymoon suite. Though the story follows rhythms familiar from romance novels, readers may be disappointed that McAdams opts to finish with a cliffhanger foreshadowing the next book, rather than giving Kash and Rachel a conclusive happy ending.
