From here on out, the Nicki Sosebee series is getting darker.
Like a dog with a bone, Nicki cannot help but continue to pursue realtor-turned-politician Gina McCafferty as the woman persists in making her play for Winchester’s open City Council seat. But Nicki is learning over and over again that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to her fair city. Meanwhile, her personal life is topsy-turvy, and a tattoo artist named Hunter makes Nicki’s life a living hell.
Alliances are tested. Lines are drawn. And events are set in motion that will play out in deadly ways…
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.
*Big breathe in and out* OK…way intense reads…….
*Big Smirk* NICKI IS BACK!!
*shakes what my momma gave me because this series is amazing*
OMG Do I love her and man have I freaking missed her!!! I think what I love best about Nicki, and I have probably said this before, is she is totally a chick I wanna be friends with. She is so like me at times with the big doe eyes and believing people are good but then realizing that they are NOT good. Sean is her true love and sounding board who really does a lot to help her with her latest and continued mystery.
Nicki is still investigation the police and politicians from the last book. Sean has meet up with some new guys who are giving him some inside information about the corruption she is investigation. She is dealing with the paper consolidating and her beloved Napoli’s falling even further down into a bankrupt business. Nicki is having a lot of personal soul searching with her and Sean plus all her other childhood friends are making changes to their lives…some good changes and some not good changes *tear*
I don’t want to go into the plot too much because there would be definite spoilers but holy the hell the introduction of Hunter had my heart racing for MANY different reasons at different times in the book. He is the right guy at the right time or is he too good to be true????? Seeing Jesse again made my tummy flutter but every scene with Sean made me Swoon and Sigh…yep #TeamSean all the way!!!
Nicki realized she was gritting her teeth—not making noise or anything, but definitely clenching them so that her jaw was tense. “Oh, sorry.” She swallowed. “Maybe today I should just get my nose pierced.”
What? She’d lost her mind.
No, this was good. Change was good. Especially now.
Hunter nodded. “That’s not a bad idea. You’ve got a good nose for it.” She snorted then and peals of laughter flowed from her mouth. He gave her a puzzled look.
“Sorry. I write part-time for the Tribune, and my boss has told me I have a nose for news.” She laughed again and he forced a smile. “Sorry. I really have had way too much to drink. Maybe I should leave.”
He touched her forearm. “No, you’re fine. You’re just a bit giddy, and that might be due to a little adrenaline flowing through your veins.”
“Yeah, as you prep yourself for a little pain.”
“Oh…how bad does that hurt?”
He flipped his hand, palm up, grinning and shrugging, and then he shook his head. “I’ve never had my nose pierced, so I don’t know. Piercing itself, though? Kind of depends on where you’re getting pierced and what your pain tolerance is. I had a shitload to drink before I got pierced, and it didn’t hurt at all.”
“You have a piercing? Where?” Nicki couldn’t see any holes anywhere—not on his ears or face. Maybe his nipples?
He grinned again, standing and extending his hand to her. “A guy’s gotta have a few secrets. Come on. Let’s go get you prepped.”
