My Review:

Trace Rivers is undercover and has infiltrated well know human trafficking Murray Coburn empire.  He is hired as his personal bodyguard and it has taken a long time to gain his trust.  He meets Priscilla Patterson who claims she is Murray's long-lost daughter and has a personal agenda with hidden secrets.

Priss has lived in a sheltered life and when her mother dies she takes it upon her self to seek revenge against the man she holds responsible for her mother's life which distracts Trace's agenda.

Trace has a vendetta against human trafficking because his sister Alicia was kidnapped in the 1st book When You Dare and was rescued by Dare.  He's determined to bring down Murray and his man-hungry girlfriend Helene (Hell).

I really loved Trace's character because he was honorable, was trying to keep Priss from getting hurt and didn't taken advantage of her.

Priss on the other hand I didn't really like that much because she was quite prissy, didn't like being told what to do and she certainly ran hot and cold.  I felt for her though because those searches were quite humiliating.

I really liked the romance between Trace and Priss because it was slow building and they got to know each other first before hopping into bed.

Murray and especially Helene (Hell) were very psychotic and cruel.  Helene is determined to get Trace into her bed and would do anything to achieve that goal.

Please don't hate me because I really thought the scenes with Trace and Helene after he was drugged were hilarious (curious to know what was in the drugs to make him like that?)

Well written storyline, fast paced, great characters, cruel and psychotic villains.
