Evie and Carmen are at opposite ends of the crime world but a meeting in a sleazy bar brings them closer together than either of them ever imagined. For Evie this is a chance to get one over on the rich businesswoman but it soon turns into something much more.
I absolutely loved this book, I couldn’t put it down, it had everything you would expect from a crime romance novel. The chemistry between the two characters is amazing and the book is so well written that it was almost like I was ‘watching’ the story rather than reading it. I was on the edge of my seat, so to speak, and had to make myself slow down because I couldn’t wait to find out what happened.
Evie and Carmen are very well written, flaws and all, and the story flows together perfectly that this book is totally believable and I was totally rooting for them all the way through.
If you like crime and/or romance, then this book is for you. I’d never read anything by this author before this but I will definitely be seeking out other works in the future.

In the dark heart of the city, a dirty little war is about to begin
Evie Baedeker knows her place in the world. Born into a life of organised crime in the gritty East End of London, she has endured nothing but hardship and disappointment. Then one night, in a sleazy bar, fate sends a dangerous opportunity her way.
Carmen Trogan, daughter and heir apparent to a rival business, has no idea who Evie is when their eyes meet across the dance floor. But Evie knows all about her. The chance to bring the rich and beautiful woman to her knees - both figuratively and literally - is too good to pass up.
Sparks fly from their first kiss, but Evie is playing a dangerous game. There are consequences that come with spending the night with a woman like Carmen.
Will she be able to walk away from the best night of her life, or will she risk it all to see Carmen one more time?
About the Author
C.K. Martin is a British writer, mostly of lesbian fiction. She loves writing character driven stories, so her books can be found in the romance, crime and fantasy genres. She believes that realistic, diverse and engaging characters shouldn’t come at the expense of great plots - readers deserve to have both.
When she’s not writing, she can usually be found with her nose in a book (or pressed against the Kindle screen). Her third biggest passion in life is travel, so although she’s based in England, for much of the year you won’t find her there. Instead she’ll be hanging out with her wife in some amazing city or, more likely, at the beach.
