Sometimes there’s a moment when you know you’ve screwed up. For Camden Skinner, it’s the night a dead pop star walks into his pub.
As one-half of Skin, an agency which specializes in cleaning up behind the ultra-rich and infamous, Cam has gotten used to getting his hands dirty. A little too used to it. After the young singer at the center of a client’s controversy is found dead, Cam decides he’s out. He walks away from Skin in search of a simpler life. Maybe even a shot at redemption.
Redemption arrives in the form of Yara Bujold.
The singer’s meteoric rise to the top surprised no one more than Yara herself. All she ever wanted was to make music. Caught up in the dark underbelly of the industry, Yara is forced to fake her own death. But she can’t hide forever.
Yara tracks down one of the principals at Skin, the very people that helped to tear her down. She’ll force Camden Skinner to make it right, whatever it takes. What she doesn’t expect is remorse from the man that helped to ruin her. And she certainly doesn’t expect to lose herself in him.
Cam finds himself sucked right back into a world he’d hoped never to step foot in again, but he can’t walk away. He has to fix this. Not only for himself, but for her. For Yara. Because she might just be everything he didn’t know he needed. She just might be everything.
This is the first book I have read by Xio Axelrod. I decided to read it because it sounded interesting and I am happy to say, I was not disappointed. This is a fast paced, engaging story filled with intrigue and passion. The writing style is solid and the dynamics between the characters are realistic and interesting.
Yara, a successful young pop star is so frustrated with her manager, she fakes her own death to get away from him. Yara decides to ask Cam for help. Cam’s agency, Skin specializes in cleaning up after the rich and famous.
I enjoyed the engaging storyline as Cam and Yara try to clear Yara’s name and prove how corrupt her manager is. Yara is a big pop star but she has remained sweet and innocent. I liked both Cam and Yara, they are good people and there is a strong attraction between them. Cam is honorable and protective and Yara brings out the best in him. He understands Yara's reluctance to trust him and is patient and understanding with her. I also love Cam’s sexy accent.
I was given an advanced copy of this book to write an honest review for Netgalley and Cocktails and Books.
