New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig's thrilling romantic suspense about a by-the-book FBI agent who must trust a risk-taking detective for help tracking down her sister's killers -- perfect for fans of Kat Martin, Sharon Sala, and Brenda Novak!
FBI agent Brie Ryan's latest mission is personal. She's posing as a waitress at the Black Diamond strip club, the same club where her estranged half sister worked until she turned up dead. When Brie's undercover assignment is compromised, she turns to the only man she knows who can help her: Connor Pierce, a too-sexy-for-his-own-good, rule-breaking cop with a knack for solving cold cases.
When someone breaks into Brie's apartment, Connor's detective skills aren't the only things that kick into overdrive. Although his job demands he remain detached, now he finds himself tempted not only by Brie's beauty but also her intelligence and bravery. As the investigation-and their attraction-grows more intense, lives are in jeopardy, and Connor finds the most important rule he must break is his own. But can he put his heart on the line?
The appeal of Don’t Look Back by Chrsitie Craig is two fold: the characters and the chemistry! There is mystery in their attempt to solve a crime, but I didn’t feel that was what made the book stand out.
Brie, an FBI agent, is going undercover to find out what happened to her sister. Connor is a cop who gets roped in as well. Both of them have baggage. They are complex characters for sure! They had great chemistry that really popped right off the page.
The plot was interesting-who killed Brie’s sister? But the story moved slow. At times, I skimmed pages because it just seemed to be stagnant. What kept me reading was how great Brie and Connor were and I wanted to see where they ended up.
Don’t Look Back will appeal to readers who like a little mystery/suspense with a character driven story! While I found the plot to drag at times, I adored the characters!
