Author: Elizabeth York
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Brooklyn Montgomery, daughter of a well-known criminal, just moved into a new apartment. She needed to be closer to downtown because she landed her dream job of becoming an assistant District attorney. Little does she know that the reason for her new job is because a killer is raining down on New York City. The killer is taking out anyone who looks like her, including the last A.D.A., and covering their bodies with thousands of forget-me-nots. Is this a clue to catching the killer or does the killer want to lead Brooklyn to her demise?

Mark Stone, Brooklyn’s childhood friend, is the lead detective in the city. He has been handed the case, but has a limited window until the FBI takes over. While he hunts to find the killer he guards Brooklyn with his life. He knows she has feelings for him, but can the past be overlooked so they can be together after they catch the killer? What happens if they can’t stop the killer in time? Will he catch the killer and capture her heart, or will the final victim be the one he wanted all along, Brooklyn?

Darra's Review:
I am new to reading Elizabeth York's books. So I had to check this out. I did like Brooklyn from the beginning and she seemed to have it put together despite her just starting a new job. She soon finds out that there has been a string of murders and they all linked to her. She is now too involved to get off this list of killings.
She has an interesting relationship with Mark. And Taylor, wow! There were scenes that were absolutely hot. However I won't lie. There were a few WTF! I was a bit confused with Taylor and Brooklyn's relationship. It is just thrown out there in the book and left a bit confused how it all happened. It didn't flow with the start of the book.
This book is a series and had a cliff hanger. I do want to know what happens with the three of them. I just wished she had a bit more common sense. If you see a creepy dude around you, run the other way. But I guess that would make the story a bit boring.
I rate the book a 3.4. 

I opened to him, and he pressed his body against mine, inhaling the moan that left my lips. All five of my senses were being overloaded by him. I could no longer hear anything but the rapid beating of my heart. I tasted coffee and whipped cream on his tongue as I inhaled his manly sandalwood scent. I looked into his eyes when he pulled away. My body burned with the need to touch him everywhere. 

“Tell me no,” Mark whispered as he dropped to his knees. I watched in fascination while he untied the bow on my drawstring shorts. I shivered as I watched him pull down my shorts, exposing a pair of black lace underwear.

Up and coming author Elizabeth York has been writing for about seven years. Located in the southeast, she spends her days drinking sweet tea on the porch with her laptop in hand. She has devoted her life to her family and her books. With the loss of her Father to cancer in 2010 she makes "Dear Daddy" dedication pages in each book and donates 10% royalties to cancer research.
Take the time to get to know the characters and you will love them as much as she does.

"This has to be one of the best new indie books out there. Elizabeth York packs a punch and delivers an awesome tale of suspense, mystery, anguish and love. Her characters are well written and the story grips you from the start, you won't want to put it down. Hold on for a helluva ride, because York delivers!" ~ Swoon Worthy Books
