Jamie Nolan is a young cop on his first undercover assignment, sent to investigate Dmitri Teplov, a suspected major player in the Russian mafia. Jamie knows better than to get involved with the gorgeous nightclub owner. But right from the start, the spark of attraction between the two of them is undeniable.

Everything about Dmitri is just so unexpected. He’s sweet and shy, and has a nerdy side that Jamie finds irresistible. Can this man really be a criminal?

No way should this thing between them be happening. Getting involved with Dmitri Teplov was never part of the plan. But sometimes, the best plan is the one you make up as you go along.


I've had this on my Kindle since 2015; my earliest book I still have to read at present.

So this starts with Jamie meeting his best friend to tell her of his first undercover role, where he needs to do a bit of recon at a club owned by the Russian Mafia. He heads out and catches the eye of the owner Dmitri Keplov and feels an instant connection with him that appears to be mutual. Jamie spends the night with him and feels himself falling for the guy but Dmitri tells him that he's engaged to be married to a woman in ten months. Jamie, despite everything, tells him he'll spend the next few months with him, taking a leave of absence from work and telling his family he's dating the gangster - which goes down like a lead balloon when his family is a cop family.

I don't know about this one. Maybe I put it off for so long because I knew, on some level, that I wouldn't get along with this. It's just so insta-love! Known each other a day or two and declaring their love for each other. The whole mafia thing. It was all just a little unbelievable and I know it's fiction, but really? 

It was just too flowery. I like a bit of angst in my stories and this was just way too happy.

I actually ended up flicking through the last few pages - after the showdown with the bad guy - because I wasn't feeling it anymore.
