REVIEW: Covert Craving by Jennifer James


She just stripped in front of an NYPD detective... The glow-in-the-dark water at Camp Sunny Woods left Chloe Saunders with the ability to disappear from sight. Thirteen years later, she uses her "gift" to take out criminals when she can. If she's got to be part of a freak show, she's going to do some good while in the buff. And he's enjoying studying every luscious curve... Color blind detective Jacob Greiff smokes to weaken the overwhelming messages his nose sends him. One summer camp trip was enough for him. His priority right now is busting the vigilante leaving burglars tied up with panty hose and women's scarves. He thinks he's hallucinating when he sees a petite, bare foot brunette in an enormous trench coat at his crime scenes because for the first time in years, he's seeing someone in full color. He's not sure he's buying it, but Chloe sure looks great when she's "invisible." Despite his own supernatural abilities and the raging lust between them, Greiff wonders if Chloe isn't some kind of nut who gets off on public nudity. She insists she can disappear from view when naked, that he's the only one who can see her when she's in the buff. Their shared past comes to a treacherous intersection when a man shows up at Chloe's apartment and informs them at gun point it's time to report for duty--or else.

Jennifer James finds an awesome balance between excitement and smexy fun with this story. Forget the case that Greiff is on, the real focus is his abilities and where they come from. Chloe’s focus is her future, or having one to be more precise. Their chemistry is sizzling, but it’s the tip of the iceberg in their story.

The love scenes are scorching, but also funny which makes it feel more authentic I think. The ending is sweet and leaves you wanting more. What’s in between is full of action, devious and ambiguous characters, and a mystery that keeps you glued to the page. I can’t wait for the next installment for too many reasons to mention!

Bottom Line:

Full of witty banter and such fun, unforgettable characters, Covert Craving is an awesome read that crosses the genre lines of UF, PNR, and even contemporary. Make sure to grab a copy!
