Sexy, gifted, and loyal, PI Jacob Decker is a tall, cool drink of perfection who had Emmanuelle Holmes at "hello." His relationship with Emme's best friend kept them apart for years, but things have changed. Now that a case has brought him to Gnaw Bone, Colorado, the road is wide open for Emme and Deck to explore something hotter and deeper than Emme dreamed possible. So why is she sabotaging the best thing that's ever happened to her?
It isn't easy to catch Deck off guard, but Emme does just that when she walks back into his life after nine long years. The curvy brunette had her charms back in the day, but now she's a bona fide knockout . . . and she wants to rekindle their friendship. Deck, however, wants more. Emme's always been the one; she excites Deck's body and mind like no other woman can. But a dark chapter from Emme's past overshadows their future together. Now only Deck can help her turn the page-if she'll let him . . .
I've been curious about Jacob Decker since the end of Breathe. My mind kept asking, "Who did he lose and how did he lose her?"
You would think I might have the answers after reading Kaleidoscope, but either I'm really dense and just missed it (which is entirely possible) or it was left vague. It really doesn't matter much in the grand scheme, I suppose.
If you're a Colorado Mountain fan, you're going to enjoy this one. Deck is true to form as far as his uber-alpha-ness (yeah, I made it up, so what?) is concerned. And Emme is the quintessential heroine just with a tad more baggage then the rest. Really, though, I like Emme's baggage, makes me feel like maybe I'm not alone in my craziness.
I can't really say too much because I feel like everything I want to say is a spoiler and I'm trying really, really hard not to do that.
I did enjoy the cameos from from everyone in Gnaw Bone and Carnal, even though Ty's appearance was minimal. (*pouts* I really need more Ty in my life)
Did I like it? Absolutely. Is Deck swoonworthy? Hell Yes! Is Emme worthy of the girl posse? Y to the U to the P.
All in all, totally worth the money that you know you're going to spend on it and the sleep you're going to miss staying up to read it.

About The Author:
Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake. Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
