Dark Taste of Rapture –
New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter captivates with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, and a powerful AIR agent consumed by his desire for a woman he can never have. . . .
With one caress, he can give unforgettable pleasure . . . or unending pain. . . .
Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped—and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he’s determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like no other. She is beautiful and rich, with a party girl smile that hides a shocking vulnerability, and from the beginning his sizzling attraction to her is undeniable. For the first time, his stone-cold resistance is tested. But to be with her, he risks destroying her.
When a wealthy businessman is murdered in New Chicago’s seediest district, the two are partnered, and there’s no escaping what they both want: each other. Yet neither Hector nor Noelle knows what to fear more—the killer case, or their own lethal desires. . . .
Read an Excerpt
I have to say that this book was outstanding. It was funny, intense, a lot of tension and as you can see the cover is HOT. When I agreed to review this I had no idea this was the 7th book in the series but it didn’t matter. I think this is actually a story of it’s own.
Noelle is a thought to be party girl and I think she may have some self esteem issues, Hector definitely has some anger issues but it all adds humor and tension to the story. Noelle and her BFF Ava begin their training for the Alien Investigation Removal (AIR) agency and Hector is their instructor – really hot instructor that Ava called dibs on. The attraction between Hector and Noelle is undeniable and I like the fact that they don’t just ‘love’ each other right away. This book had a lot of great layers too it and I can honestly say I give this one 5 STARs and now I have to go buy the rest!
