About this ebook

NYC summer days are hot. Nights are even hotter…

Not much has stirred Detective Jake Lowell’s interest since a perp put a bullet in his shoulder, killed his partner, then walked on a technicality. Until a sexy waitress at a tiny neighborhood café catches his eye.

Physical therapy is the last thing on Jake’s want-to-do list, but he needs it to get back on the street and track down the killer. But what’s a guy to do when he meets his new PT—and it’s his smoking hot café angel?

Working two jobs, Brianne Nelson never expected to do more than fantasize about Mr. Tall, Tanned & Gorgeous. But when her new private PT client turns out to be the man who fuels her fantasies, she realizes she’s going to be seeing a lot more of him—in the flesh—than she bargained for.

It’s not long before skin-on-skin contact turns into a hot summer fling. But the killer Jake is after isn’t going down without a fight and more than their hearts could get caught in the crossfire…

Note: This title was originally published in 2002 by Harlequin Blaze. It appears here in its original glory, without substantial revision.

This is the fourth book in the Simply series. I really liked Brianne and Jake. They have a such great chemistry. I loved Jake's meddling sister Rina. She sets into motion of events that's definitely eventful. Though my heart goes out to her for what she's experiencing. This book had plenty of heart, heat, and humor, but it also has the perfect touch of suspense. There is a nasty character in this one that has caused a lot of pain and destruction especially with Jake.

I enjoyed this book. The story was romantic, thrilling and suspenseful and held my interest very well. The chemistry really sparks and sizzles between Jake and Brianne and when you add in hefty helpings of heart and sweetness, and you have yourself an entertaining and engaging read. This is my frank, freely posted review.

4.5 Stars This is book 4 in the Simply series and it features Jake and Brianna. Before these two actually met, the sparks were flying. Leave it to Jake’s sister, Rina, to play matchmaker and hire a PT to help with Jake’s shoulder injury. The PT is none other than the waitress Jake fantasizes about at a restaurant he only goes to because of her. Their chemistry is SMOKIN HOT! This story is full of sexual tension, some amazing gym time, secrets, and action packed danger!
