Description: Does everyone have something to hide?
Olivia Winters and Max Lyon knew each other way back when, but she was one of the cool kids, and he was a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Olivia's a successful model now, and Max a PI much in demand.
When Olivia's old high school friend is murdered-and a raft of "accidental" deaths may be murders, too-Max is the only man Olivia can trust to help her investigate.
As they team up, Max is blown away by Olivia's courage under fire, and Olivia finds that the bad boy she remembers from the fringes of her social circle might just be the best man she's ever met...
My Thoughts: PRIVATE AFFAIR was an action-packed thriller with a wonderful romance too. Olivia Winters is back in the small town she grew up in because a friend was murdered. She has become suspicious because other members of her class have been dying too. She comes home with Max Lyon posing as her fiance so that he can investigate. He's also from town but was a couple of years ahead of Olivia and was the bad boy from the poor part of town. Olivia was part of the in-crowd because of her beauty - a beauty she has parlayed into a successful modeling career.
Olivia is keeping secrets about what went on her senior year of high school and will have to share them with Max if they have any hope of solving the crimes. Olivia is also in danger because of what she knows and what she might tell. There was a lot of tension in this story. I liked the way Max and Olivia got to know each other and open up to each other.
Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy this story and, like me, be eager to find out the stories of Max's partners in Rockfort Security.
Her life there was no longer as satisfying as it had been. Now she was back here. Because she actually wanted to face the past? Or because she was fleeing again?I got this eARC from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
That was an interesting thought. And the man in the other room had offered her a way to deal with that past. To put it to rest once and for all.
