"Dangerously funny stuff." –Janet Evanovich
LA therapist, Chrissy McMullen and her on-again-off-again LAPD hottie, Jack Rivera finally agreed that it would be best for the rest of the civilized world if they ended their too-hot-to-handle relationship...
Until they run into each other at a posh Rodeo Drive restaurant. Chrissy is there with a date. Rivera is escorting his mother, who ends up guarding the restroom door while the ex-couple revisits their decision to break up (a discussion that involves the removal of many, many items of clothing and continues at Rivera’s house.)
Their reunion was definitely explosive—but could it actually be deadly? The Black Flames, the most bloodthirsty criminal gang in modern history, arrives at Rivera’s front door carrying a big grudge and deadly weapons...and now Chrissy is also a target!
Desperate to protect her, Rivera convinces her to leave town until it’s safe. Thus Chrissy’s frantic exile to parts unknown—a city girl adrift in wheat fields! Sans money, decent clothing, and any kind of technology, Chrissy takes an alias, becomes a waitress and spends her time defending her dubious honor and trolling for tips. She can feel her IQ dropping with every slack-jawed patron she serves; with the exception of Hiro Jonovich Danshov, the intriguing mystery man who Chrissy hates....but is undeniably (although she DOES deny it) attracted to.
Will he teach her to defend herself before they kill each other or is he a member of the very gang she’s hiding from?
