Reviewer Comments: What a fun and exciting story! This is the first book by Kelly Fitzpatrick that I have read and it was a delight. I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. Alexandria Moreno is a parking enforcement officer (don’t call her a Meter Maid!) in Pleasant Lake. She has always wanted to work for the police department and although parking enforcement isn’t her dream job, it has some perks. When Alex is offered the chance to go undercover and investigate a potential human trafficker, she jumps at the opportunity. Working with the FBI should help her to move up in the police department and she can leave ticket writing behind her. One of the only downfalls to the situation is that she has to work with Roman Plow. Roman is not only an ex-lover, but a real jerk. He has no problem making sexual comments and flirting with Alex despite the fact that he is continuing to sleep with every woman who crosses his path. Roman takes pride in his playboy status. Alex doesn’t know if she can count on him to keep her safe. Another downfall is Alex’s immediate attraction to the man she is supposed to be investigating, Miguel Diaz. As Alex gets to know Miguel, she begins to wonder if he really could be the bad guy that everyone says he is. Is she just fooling herself so that she doesn’t get her heart broken or is he really the awful man that the FBI believes that he is. This book combines great chicklit and romance with the suspense of working undercover. I wasn’t sure where the story was going to go and that kept me reading. There are parts that will make you laugh out loud, but also parts that make you gasp as you eagerly turn the page to find out what happens next. Trying to figure out who Alex is going to end up with also added to the suspense of the story. We know that she has two guys who both have a multitude of faults, but they have some good points as well. Alex isn’t the most heroic heroine. She definitely gets herself into some scrapes and needs rescuing ala Stephanie Plum, but she wants to succeed and find out the truth about Miguel. Alex will do whatever it takes to figure out what is going on even if it means putting herself in danger to do so.

Overall: 10
Sensuality: 8
Suspense Element: 8
