As the only woman on her homicide squad, star investigator Genevieve Delacroix maintains a tough-as-nails attitude that keeps men at arm’s length. She never gives in to her secret fantasies—until she meets a mysterious stranger who teaches her how little control she really has over her mind or her body.
Cole Adams arrives in New Orleans believing Genevieve is his last hope for solving the murder of his younger sister. He just doesn’t expect the hard-bitten detective to look like a blond bombshell. Once he breaks through her inhibitions, he soon finds an unexpected obsession driving Genevieve right to the edge of desire . . . and beyond. But when the serial killer who has been terrorizing the streets of the French Quarter sets his sights on Genevieve, they realize that they both have let down their guard. And losing control can have fatal consequences.
Going into Tie Me Down I wasn’t sure what to expect. The books I read fall into 2 categories.. Either books that are super popular that I have an idea about the plot going into it or books I pick based on either the genre, cover or maybe even just the title or author. In this case it was a combination of both the title and the cover. After a quick check on Goodreads I saw that it was an erotica with BDSM. I didn’t however notice the fact that it would be a suspense and thriller too! I was so surprised at what a fun read this was! It was so refreshing from most of the contemporary reads I’ve been into lately where I can usually figure out where the story is going to end up before I’m even half way through the book. The main character Genevieve is the only female homicide in the French Quarter and stumbles upon a serial kill who is infatuated with her.
The first few chapters are pretty much a sex fest between Genevieve and Cole and I was worried that that was all that was going to happen but I was pleasantly surprised. I’ll give it to the author the the sex was hot! They are both pretty stubborn and there were a few instances where I wanted to yell at them to get their shit together and get over them selves. Cole with being a stubborn jerk who didn’t want to open up and Genevieve with her constant ignoring signs it got a little frustrating at times but I really did enjoy this read. It was a lot of fun and every time I thought I had it figured out something else popped up and had me questioning everything that I was thinking!
I’d totally recommend this to other people its opened me up to this whole murder mystery genre I’d never read before and I can’t wait to get to some more!
