He might be innocent.
Or he might be very, very guilty...
Olympic skier Lock Roane was on top of the world: smashing world records, collecting medals, and basking in the love of a nation and his beautiful heiress girlfriend. It all comes crashing down after Lock discovers his girlfriend had an affair - then wakes from a drunken bender to find himself covered in her blood. Disgraced and dethroned, Lock awaits his murder trial with dread, not knowing if his girlfriend died at his own hands.
Journalist Jordan Sinclair is out of options. To satisfy her blackmailer, she must get the inside scoop (and its cash reward) on Lock Roane. An attraction to the arrogant athlete was not part of the plan. Neither is trying to find out what really happened that night. Now Jordan risks everything - including her life - to help the man she's falling for. A man who just might be a cold-blooded killer...
I was completely drawn into this story very quickly. I couldn't put it down and spent every opportunity I could get dipping into it- before work, at the breakfast table etc.
The great chemistry and banter between the characters was quite amusing.
The mystery of who committed the murder kept me guessing right up to the very end. I liked that there were so many plausible suspects to choose from! Even Lock himself wasn't above suspicion.
I enjoyed the process of elimination as Jordan and Lock investigated the different theories and suspects. Equally enjoyable was their burgeoning romance and the interactions between them as they spent more time together.
A great read, Highly recommended.
