Under Faith Malone's deceptively soft exterior lies a woman who knows exactly what she wants: a strong man who'll take without asking - because she's willing to give him everything...

Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it.

Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she?

Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance. So she takes matters into her own hands to prove to him it's no game she's playing. She's willing to surrender to the right man. Gray would like to be that man. But catching his partner's killer has to be his first priority - until Faith is threatened and Gray realizes he will do anything to protect her..

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I am a huge fan of Maya Banks’s, KGI series. I love her writing style it keeps the pages turning. I thought I would have a lookie at her erotic romance series.


Grayson Montgomery, Dallas cop, has lost his partner Alex, his best friend. He was shot down, murdered. Alex’s father Mick is more hindrance than help. He is a father who is hurting and wants answers and the killer of his son. He enlists Gray to help him out. He has a lead and he wants Gray to find Alex’s killer.

Gray’s link to the killer is through Faith.

Faith is a young woman very unsettled in her sex life. She has no idea that Gray is tapping her phone at work, listening in on her calls, all in the name of justice.

Micah and Nathan work for Pop’s security company. Connor is Pop’s son and he too works for Malone and Sons Security. Mick wangles Grayson a job with Pop, so he can go undercover and bring his sons’s killer down.

Nathan is a gorgeous character. He grabbed me as more of the fun character who gets some stick from Micah.

“Do you get naked when you go?” Nathan asked, as if the idea had just occurred to him.

She snorted. “As if I’d tell you.”

“C’mon, Faith. Give a guy a bone.”

She grinned. “Want me to call Julie and have her hook you up with a complete package?”

He stared suspiciously at her. “I’m not so sure about this. I might get my penis revoked by the league of manly men if this shit ever gets out.”

Connor can only think of Faith as a sister, even though Pop only adopted her later in life.

Now, Micah....yowzer! I will say no more. Well maybe just this.

Just as she neared bursting , he pulled away, leaving her aching with need. Then he moved his lips to hers and kissed her softly. “If he tosses you out of his apartment, he’s a damn fool.”

He touched her cheek with his finger as she sought to control her erratic breathing.

“I hope you find what it is you want,” he said. “But if you don’t, you know where to find me.”

Enter Damon. Gahhh!! with a side order of yowzer. I am very intrigued by this lad. He has a Christian Grey type personality. I will say no more.

Back to Grayson.

For the first two thirds of the book it is more playful, feeling each other out, Gray doing his snooping about in the name of justice, of course..... but...then...YOWZER!!!

Let’s just say things heat up considerably and you get to meet the real Grayson.

* fans oneself *

I thought the plot surrounding the killer could have been more detailed in this story. I really enjoyed this book and I know Maya can bring the smexi as I have read her KGI series and those lads in that series are all very rawrrrr. As this is a suspense I would have liked more of that side of it in the story line.

I certainly got some surprises with Micah and Gray and I am left super intrigued by Damon.

Bring . On. Sweet Persuasion...that be Damon's book. Sounds like it is a rather YOWZER read!

I may have over used the word Yowzer, lol!



  1. Oh snap! I want to read this! This is my kind of sexy, erotica with a dash of danger!


    P.S. I want to move to Australia, find a house next to you, so I can raid your bookshelf & borrow books every frickin day!

    1. I think this series is so on fire my library doesn't stock #2 and # 3 lol! Dang!!
