Private Investigator, Gabriel Silver is healing from a deadly loss, burying himself in work and avoiding relationships of any kind. When he agrees to help a friend who's tangled up with drug dealers he has no idea the job will change his life.

Samantha Connor is recovering from a terrible relationship. She's on the prowl for a hot hook-up, with no strings attached. When she meets Gabriel, she thinks she's found the perfect man to fulfill her deepest yearnings. But Gabriel turns out to be more than meets the eye.

Soon, she's knee-deep in his latest case and on the run with Gabriel and her sexy friend Kendra. As they plot to trap the drug dealers, Samantha and Gabriel begin a thrilling game of cat and mouse. With growing feelings, danger at every turn and seduction on the table, anything can happen. When Samantha tries to help her friend and her sexy new guy, she finds herself in too deep.

Can two star-crossed lovers untangle from their shattered pasts long enough to find true love, or is Gabriel Silver about to find out that history repeats itself, and lose everything he ever cared about?

A hot bartender/P.I. -  a cute girl looking for a one-night-stand and her sexy friend Kendra!
Let the sexiness begin ☺

Samantha walks into her friend Kendra's bar hoping to finally forget about her idiot ex by having a no-strings one-night-stand with a hot guy. And surfer-dude-look-a-like bartender Gabe might just be what she wants.

Gabe is working 'under-cover' at the bar as a barkeeper and investor, as a favor for his cousin and business partner - aka Kendra's ex - who asked Gabe to watch out for her.

Sparks are flying between Gabe and Sam - but Kendra wants Sam too - she's flirting and seducing all through the book.

I don't want to spoil too much...

 let's just say there's a lot of sex - girl & girl - boy & girl - boy & girl & girl ☺

 - there are lots of Orgasms in the book
(ahem - the Cocktail kind of course!!)

- Gabe has a very sad & dramatic past

- bad guys are chasing Gabe, Sam and Kendra all the way to New Zealand.

- there might be a kidnapping

- Kendra is a very complicated character
(and we'll meet her again in the Layers Trilogy)

I really liked the book - only the girl on girl porn is not my thing. The cover is really pretty - but it doesn't really fit - it would be better to have either a bar with Gabe behind it and Sam sitting on a stool - or an action scene - with a guy and a girl running from something ☺ Of course - what's on the cover - the gift and the sparkle stuff - it's part of the story - but it's a bit misleading in my opinion.
The whole book felt a bit short - I would've liked a 100 more pages that would've given Sam & Gabe more time together.

What I didn't like was the phrase Promises, promises! You can say it once or twice in a book - maybe a third time as a joke - but it was a bit much ☺ 

But - I'm looking forward to the Layers Trilogy now ☺
