This is the first I have read from Adrienne Giordano and won’t be the last. This is book one of a series that is starting to become a favorite for me. The characters, Michael and Roxann, are hot, stable and the storyline just mind blowing. This book had it all and is one of my favorites. It has strong characters, a good solid story line, hot sizzling passion and a romance that will stay in your head once you finish reading. It is just awesome.
