I’m not your good ole boy or boy-next-door type of guy.
If that’s what you’re looking for, I suggest you move on. I curse a lot, work too fucking much, and keep to myself. My edges are hard, rough, and even dark at times.
I never thought I would wind up in the business I’m in. I may not always play by the rules, but I go where the money is, keep my nose clean, and my affairs organized.
Who knew one fucking e-mail would change everything in my controlled life. I swore I’d never touch a case like hers again, but there was something intriguing behind every word I read.
She had my attention, she would have my services, but I never thought she’d steal my heart.
My name is Chase Black, owner of Dark Edges PI.I’m your good girl and I once had everything.
A big beautiful house with a view of gorgeous mountains, an expensive car, stress-free job, a wardrobe any woman would die for, but one thing was missing…the ever-absent husband.
I never expected to be in the position I’m in, but I needed answers.
I sent one e-mail thinking I would figure it all out. It wasn’t the route I intended to take. The life I’d been living was a lie and he gave me the answers I needed. What happened next I wasn’t prepared for.
He had my information, he took the case, but I never thought he’d capture my heart.
My name is Naomi McAllister, owner of a broken heart.This is our story…
Disclaimer: I received an eARC of the book from the Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
I had no idea what to expect when I opened this book up – all I knew was that the blurb had intrigued me and that I would have an alpha hero on my hands and a wild ride to contend with.
And I honestly COULDN’T WAIT!
Day against night. Polished against rough. Dull against adventure.
Right off the bat – Chase Black is douche – no, I am not kidding – he really comes off as a douche – and that honestly is the most complimentary term I could come up with – but even with his douche-ness there was something about him that you JUST couldn’t ignore – I didn’t exactly know what IT was, but it was that simple reason that kept me going ahead with the book.
Naomi McAllister, on the other hand, is a woman who is slowly loosing the grip on her marriage – absolutely in love with her husband, and newly married, she is slowly getting a grip on the fact that not everything is right with shiny world – a husband that should have been by her side, is not only ignoring her, but might also be having an affair.
So she decides to take the matters in her own hands – and hires Chase’s PI services.
Now Naomi and Chase had a slightly unorthodox meeting – a meeting that starting defining both their lives.
As usual, I was right to keep with the story – It is an interesting one – not just because it’s written by a male author (Yep! I didn’t know that until I checked Goodreads, AFTER completing the book!) but because there is something infinitely RAW about these characters – and their connection with each other that I just couldn’t let go off.
A debut novel for Mr. Kane, it has everything – a romance that knocks your socks off with some twists and turns that you just never really see coming.
However, there are instances of cheating in this romance, which when you look at it, can be understood, but it is a hard limit for me, no matter what, why or with whom.
Beyond, this little snag, I really liked this romance, and I am quite excited to see where the author goes from here!
He may not have been the perfect guy. I may not have been the perfect girl. But together, we were pretty fucking perfect.

I’m Kane Caldwell, an aspiring contemporary erotica Author. Writing had started years ago as a hobby but quickly turned into a passion. I am the epitome of a country boy with my jeans, t-shirt, hat, scruffy face, and work boots on, driving my truck. I’m in my mid-
forties, but my mind tells me different. I live in the south where the weather is warm but most times sweltering hot. I have two teenage boys that I’m very proud to call my sons. I may be a simple guy but I do have a few jagged edges. When I have down time, I love to be surrounded by family, friends, great food or engrossed in a good book. Like I said simple guy with simple pleasures.
