Synopsis
Laura Rockford needs that big break that will move her journalism career from fluff pieces to serious news. When she stumbles across a bizarre murder scene in downtown Vegas, she finally gets her chance. Even more so when her older brother spills the beans that could implicate a video game programming genius. For once in her career Laura has a lead that the police don’t know about. She flings herself head-first into digging up everything she can to break the case, oblivious to any personal danger in confronting a possible killer. After all, how hard can it be to wheedle information out of a geeky reclusive computer nerd?
Mike McQuaid is anything but geeky–unless you consider a ruggedly handsome face and a sexy as hell male model body with a computer genius brain geeky. But he is reclusive – he has to be because he has a deep, dark secret and he can’t let anyone get close enough to discover it. Not even the hot little journalist that shows up at his penthouse begging for an interview.
With the body count rising and Laura and Mike’s attraction sizzling out of control, Laura does what any good journalist would do. She digs in even deeper. But she soon discovers that some secrets should stay buried and trusting the wrong person could have consequences much more deadly than just losing her heart.

Rating: 3.5*

Laura is a journalist trying to get a big story that take her away from the mundane stories she is covering. When she stumbles on a murder that is reminiscent of a popular computer game, it leads her to the reclusive programmer Mike. Mike is not your typical computer geek and has some dark secrets in his past.


The first one in the series had me on the edge of my seat. Unfortunately this was unable to replicate that feeling. This one felt lacking in energy and drive, with most of story seeing Laura running back and forth to Mike's penthouse. I had difficulty with Laura's desire to hit the big time. Her research skills were lazy, considering her career path and that her brother owns Rockford Security. She jumped easily to conclusions without confirming facts. The plot had masses of potential to keep you hooked but didn't live up to it's potential. This was just an ok read for me.
