Court reporter Renee Rose found out the hard way that hooking up with a cop is like a bikini wax–it starts off hot, turns painful, and ends in tears.
But when her best friend receives an e-mail, supposedly from her long-dead fiancé, demanding money, Renee knows they need help. Too bad help comes in the form of Detective Anthony Graciano, an annoying, bossy cop who somehow manages to haul Renee’s libido out of dry dock.
Police work is more than a career to Anthony, it’s an obsession. He specializes in cases involving female victims, which leaves him no time for anything else. Until he meets Renee, a delicious mystery he yearns to explore.
As danger closes in, Anthony fights to keep Renee safe despite her tendency to plunge headlong into danger–and her doubts about him. Can she learn to trust his love before it’s too late?
One of the MANY five star reviews!
Every reader rates books differently. I rate mine on enjoyment factor and Playing Dead is a factor of 5!
The story was entertaining and fun, but it was the author’s incredible talent in drawing her characters that kept me turning pages. Good guys or bad, each one had a distinctive voice that always delighted me. However, the author’s talent was even more evident in that she didn’t let any one character dominate. I was introduced to a complete – and completely delightful – universe that kept spinning smoothly until the very last page. Clearly Ms. Lebel loved every single one of her characters and so did I. Watch out, Jody E. Lebel has words and she knows how to use them! – Rebecca Forster
