Trust isn’t easy when the ones you want most are out to get you.

Ten years after she ran away from Earth, Lou Campbell is one job—just one more collar—away from earning enough credits to go home. All she has to do is lure Sam Dawson within range of her handcuffs with the promise of fast, hard sex. Easy.

Once she gets him there, keeping her own hands off him isn’t so easy.

Sam’s committed his share of sins, but he’s not guilty of selling secrets. Before he can convince the sexiest bounty hunter he’s ever seen that he’s been betrayed, all hell breaks loose. And he’s on the run with a false accusation on his hands—and a bleeding woman in his arms.

Alone in her boss’s safe house, Lou and Dawson’s simmering attraction explodes into full-blown fireworks.

When Jared Flores walks in on his best hunter and ex-lover in bed together, the surprise is mutual. Worse, the need he has long felt for both of them overrides his better judgment. After the fists fly, the sparks catch fire into a budding three-way romance.

Then Sam disappears, leaving Jared and Lou in a race against time to not only retrieve their lover, but save his life.

Product Warnings:: Hot M/F sex, M/F/M sex, and holy moly some really hot MMF sex amongst lots of weapons and fire fights. Deceitful family members, nasty set ups, and an Alpha male whose lovers have naughty punishments in mind—when they catch him.  
I obtained the above information from Samhain Publishing website.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

I was given this book for an honest review and my honest thoughts, so here goes...

Ms. Melissa is an awesome erotic writer... I am very *haha* familiar with her work. She has a talent of getting under your sheets and making it hot. She creates her world with a dash of desire, pinch of need, a smidgen of want and a whole lotta passion. And when she brings it all together - its an explosive world to lose yourself in.

This world is no different... Well, it is a tad different due to the fact that this is a sci-fi story. But even then, Ms. Melissa made falling into this world just as desirous. Now let's meet the players of the game The Last Detail.... Because believe me, Ms. Melissa left no detail untouched!!

Lou is by far a woman I crave for. She is a lethal walking weapon, piss her off... And you will likely find yourself on the floor in a state unconscious or worst.... dead. She is hell on wheels and gorgeous to boot. She does not wear her heart on her sleeve either. She keeps her emotions on lock down 24/7. And most of all, she is a survivor. What I admire most about her is that she did not play victim due to her past.

Sam... Well, let me see... He is all man, built like a Ford truck and hotter than walking in an inferno. Oh yes, he is that hot!! He is loyal to the bone but despite having the people he loves the most hurt him. But when he loves, oh damn... He loves, but he does it with a guarded heart. He is a man you want on your side, no matter the situation. Even when the situation involves handcuffs and the need for survival.

Jared is Lou's best friend, confident and boss. He has been there for her when it has really counted. But he was born with a silver spoon in his hand - so to speak. He comes from a wealthy family but that did not define him as a person. When he broke the ties that bound him to them, he was literally on his own...  but being on your own doesn't mean you actually want to be alone.

Ms. Melissa combined these three together for one hell'va ride. You will have to read to find out what happens to them on their journey. A journey that takes them to Hades and back. And a journey that does more than bring a bounty on their head... A bonding of hearts... Is that possible with the past they have all been through...? Can walls be broken and hearts repaired in order for the rarest thing to survive... Love?

Welcome to Ms. Melissa's world... Enjoy! I know I sure did!!
