Looks can be deceiving…
Emmy-winning journalist Alexandra Reed returns to the DC area with two goals in mind—care for her ailing mom and steer clear of devastatingly handsome Crockett Wilde. But the man who stole her heart, then broke it, is impossible to avoid. As her life spins out of control, she finds pleasure in her secret escape—a sex-play club. And that’s where things really heat up…
Tech CEO Crockett Wilde is at the top of his game, but beneath his calm surface lies a raging volcano. When he finds the monster who abducted his sister, he’ll unleash a decade of pain. The one person who can subdue his demons—beautiful, headstrong Alexandra—wants nothing to do with him. Yet, he’s determined to set the record straight and not let the love of his life get away.
As Alexandra follows a trail of suspicious incidents at the kink club, Crockett seizes the opportunity to prove he’s not the bad guy she believes him to be. Together they unmask an underworld of evil. But it's the moment she goes missing that changes their lives in unimaginable ways.
Five Star Review by Brittany
I’d been meaning to read this book for a while now, but having been bogged down in reviews, and I’ll admit, skeptical that it would be as good as it was, I’d been pushing it back for months.
So I finally put my big girl panties on and opened the book that Stoni Alexander asked me to read in exchange for an honest review.
Sooo, honestly... this book was pretty damn great. I absolutely loved the chemistry between Crockett (which I’ll admit, is a really weird name) and Alexandra. The sex scenes... guys. The sex scenes are basically like role playing porn written out in words and it’s hot as fuck. I’m not lying. I mean, college professor and student, detective and suspect... man oh man, it was great.
When they’re not having sex, Alexandra is sleuthing. Wanting to be an investigative reporter, she’ll follow any hunch that she has. And boy, is this hunch a doozy.
Crockett can be found in his lab, going over what could make his surveillance equipment fail during demos for the FBI. Could this be an inside job or is it really just random?
I would classify this book as a psychological thriller. I’m kept on my toes the entire time I’m reading, which, by the way, I could not put the book down, and when the big reveal of what’s going on inside Incognito is revealed... you’ll be floored. I was SHOCKED. Shocked is almost an understatement. Out of all the things I thought it could be, this wasn’t even on my radar. Floored, I tell you.
There are some pretty great minor characters and a story set up for a pair of them, which I’m interested in reading. I’m also interested and reading The Mitus Touch, the first book in this series about Alexandra’s brother.
The only negative thing I have to say is that I felt the big scene with the police and whatnot was rushed.
Speaking of, holy crap on the information that Danny found out. Like my jaw dropped. I thought the surprises were over after that big scene... but no, she pulled the rug out from under us.
I’m very glad that I put my other arcs and reviews on hold for this book. It was phenomenal!
