Bethany Amaya is working three jobs, worrying about her family back home, and running from her past. The worst thing that could complicate her life further would be a romance. But after a second-run in with the irresistibly sexy detective Damian Santiago, that's exactly what she gets. In the blink of an eye, she's caught up in a passionate romance with one of the most intense men she's ever met.
Awestruck for a second time by the beautiful and intriguing performer, Damian is both surprised and delighted that Bethany agrees to something he didn't even expect to be asking for so soon--exclusivity. As things heat up, Damian's skills of detecting and reading body language begin to raise suspicions--Bethany is keeping something from him. Try as he might to calm his suspicions, the blatant signs become impossible to ignore.
Some things are better left unsaid. At least that's what Bethany keeps telling herself. She never imagined falling in love so quickly, and she refuses to get Damian caught up in her troubles. She knows what he suspects--sees it in those possessive eyes. With Damian's suspicions mounting, time is of the essence. The race is on, and Bethany finds herself scrambling to fix the past before the truth comes out and Damian finds out that it's much worse than he suspected.
I first became acquainted with Elizabeth's work when I read her 5th Street series, and I feel in love with her characters and her flawless writing style. If your a fan, or even if your new to Elizabeth, you are in for a treat and are absolutely going to love Desert Heat. Elizabeth wrote a fabulous story and also managed to add a twist I did not see coming at all in this story! 4 stars.
A suspenseful, smoldering hot, addictive new series by Elizabeth Reyes. True to form, Elizabeth has wrote another smoking hot alpha male in Damian Santiago, and I can't wait for the rest of the Santiago siblings to get their stories told!
