"As a low-level enforcer in Los Angeles, Ken Swift knows danger, but nowhere does he feel it more than in his tangled romances. Divorced from one woman, in love with another, and wrestling with a strong desire to get to know a third, his life is far from perfect, and it becomes all the more complicated when his troubled daughter resurfaces on the same day as a major job. Margaux is pregnant, bitter, and desperate: she needs $50,000 immediately, and she isn't above blackmailing Ken to get it. Yet even as the tension-filled father/daughter reunion escalates into a clashing of wills and desires that spread far beyond their family, Ken's latest contract spirals quickly out of control, and he finds it is not only his daughter looking to seek revenge. With the strong characters, heart-pounding action, and intense passion he is known for, New York Times bestseller Eric Jerome Dickey lays bare a tale of lust and angst that will leave readers breathless"-- Provided by publisher.

Super disappointed in this book. Story seems too drawn out and the plot wasn't clear until the end of the book. It lacked action and direction. I'm a huge EJD fan, but this was one of my least favorite books of his.

As a huge fan of EJD I don't feel bad saying this isn't his best work. His catalog is vast so one so-so book doesn't hurt the brand. But I certainly wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Plot holes, poor character development and everyone lives happily ever after. The story gives me bad made-for-TV vibes. I found myself skipping past the "of the moment" cultural commentary because it added nothing to the story at all. If you are interested in EJD check out his early work, it was groundbreaking for the genre. This feels like a completed obligation for his publishing contract, not the work of a passionate author.
