This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
After witnessing the murder of an FBI agent in a parking garage late one night, Lizzy Monroe meets with the FBI and agrees to work with a sketch artist. But on her way out of the office, she comes face to face with the killer – another FBI agent. She knows from experience what happens when a criminal is a member of law enforcement – cops protect their own. So when the killer shows up at her door later that morning, she knows she has no choice but to run.
From the moment he sees her, Mac Donovan is intrigued by – and in lust with – their beautiful witness. After Lizzy disappears, he spends his free time tracking her down. When he finally finds her on a remote island in the San Juans, their chemistry is explosive and the sex is even hotter. But he's hiding his identity from her. What will happen when she discovers who he really is? Will she be able to forgive his betrayal? Or will the killer find them first?

POV ~> Third-person.
Mac is the oldest Donovan sibling. FBI, where the others went the route of PD. Lizzy is a language's expert that translates for numerous places, including acting as interpreter at the hospital. After one such late night interpreting at the hospital, she witnesses a murder.
The victim was an FBI agent. When Mac's only witness decides to ghost on them before sitting with a sketch artist, he becomes obsessed not only with her as a witness, but as a woman.
Both lead characters were strong and smart in their own rights. She was wary due to past poor experience with law enforcement, but it made her come off as unfairly judgemental. He was unsure if he could trust his gut when lower parts of his anatomy seemed to be leading the investigation. Their chemistry was magnetic, but he liked to be rather pushy and persuasive. It was a little off-putting at times. The secondary characters provided strength in their roles. Dialogue and cast interaction were believable. The plot was dynamic and full of energy. The writing flowed smoothly.
A critical error at 42%, on Mac's end (whether intentional on the author's end or not, I don't know), could have ended everything but apparently, it went unnoticed by the hyper-vigilant Beth. Once back in Chicago, nothing further was mentioned about the findings in her apartment. One would think, at the very least, she'd have some questions to answer pertaining to the "incriminating evidence".
Very little predictability for me. The conclusion was satisfying enough with an implied attempt at an HEA, however, nothing solid was provided to back that assumption.
Overall, it was another well-written, exciting book to the series.
