#6, Pierce Securities
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
This has got to be one of the weirdest relationships on the books.
Deena Rae is a loner, a strong independent woman who needs nobody, with the possible exception of Mr. Fine Ass, with whom she’s begun a strange courtship. He’s certainly a nice diversion from her new job with Pierce Securities and her first solo gig with the company.
Slade is in debt to a man nobody wants to owe, his sperm donor just died, and somehow, Deena Rae knows the half-brother Slade’s never met. Slade can’t keep his eyes off his gorgeous bitch of a neighbor who keeps her drapes open, even when she’s “entertaining.” He’s told her, though, he’s a train wreck and they shouldn’t get involved.
Now Deena Rae is riding Slade’s train all the way to the end, whether she likes it or not. Slade is working for her mark, and her mark suddenly wants her dead.
And Slade’s the man who’s got to do it.
Breaking and Entering...
This novel is the sixth in the Pierce Securities series. I have read them out of order, but was not confused or felt as though I was missing out on something. Deena Rae, a former Bail Bonds person, is trying to prove her worth in the male dominated office of Pierce Securities. When her boss finally gives her the lead on a case, she's all in. She works hard to gather Intel, but is distracted by "Mr. Fine A**".
Slade, aka "Mr. Fine A**", is a tenant in the apartment complex where Deena Rae resides. He also works as a bouncer at the same bar that Deena Rae is investigating. Coincidence? In his spare time, Slade finds himself equally intrigued by "Ginger". Deena Rae hates the name Slade taunts her with, but finds it sexy at the same time.
Slade and Deena Rae have pasts that haunt them. Slade has a dad who chose to ignore he and his mom, while Deena Rae's parents died in a motorcycle accident. Slade would do anything to protect or help his mom, even though she doesn't deserve it! It's his sense of responsibility to his mom that gets him into trouble with his mom, boss, and Deena Rae. He knows he's not good enough for Deena Rae, but can't stay away. She KNOWS he's just as bad for her, but she can't stop thinking about him too.
I absolutely LOVED the humor in this novel!!! The sassiness, cute names, breaking and entering, and give and take between Slade and Deena Rae were HILLARIOUS. I highly recommend this novel. It has a twist at the end I didn't see coming. I read a gifted copy of this novel and all opinions stated are my own.
Anne Conley has done it again! This book is AWESOME!!
This is the 6th book in Anne Conley's Pierce Securities Series. This book was a page turner from the second I dtarted it. I really couldn't put it down, since I just HAD to know what would happen next...then next...then next. It was such an awesome read. If you like a tough, take no crap kind of woman who happens across a super hot, self proclaimed, train wreck, well then, this is the story for you!
The chemistry between the 2 is so awesome to see unfold. They keep trying to one up each other, which was really fun to see.
You will NOT be disappointed with this story!! So, what are you waiting for? Get to reading it already. *wink*
