Dirty Trick by Mickey Miller
We first met Eva Napleton in her brother Jake's book, Playing Dirty, and I was glad to see this feisty, sassy spitfire get her own book. Eva works as a psychologist for the DEA and everyone thinks of her as the “good girl.” There’s a bit of a bad girl dying to come out and play, and one night Eva let’s her alter-ego out, introduces herself as Alexa, and has the time of her life with a sexy, tattooed bad boy named Corbin. Weeks after sneaking out of his hotel room, who does Eva come face to face with? Corbin. And not just anywhere. At her job! If that’s not a big enough disaster, Eva learns Corbin is an ex drug dealing con who's now working with the DEA to take down the biggest drug lord in the area in exchange for a reduced prison term. To add insult to injury, Eva has to work undercover with Corbin.
Mickey Miller really pulled out all the stops on this one! I’m always eager to read an early copy of his books and Dirty Trick really delivers. I’m not sure if Miller is intentionally stretching his literary wings, but if he has a notion to cross over into romantic suspense, he has an excellent start with this book. Staying true to his trademark smoldering chemistry and laugh out loud moments, this one kept me on the edge of my seat, furiously turning pages, throughout this adrenaline-fueled ride! Sexy and funny but suspenseful and intense, Dirty Trick has it all and is a definite must read!
