Along the way, they also discover just how deep their attraction really is, and they finally both accept that their relationship has become a deep passion. To get the real killer behind bars, Cam is going to use all the skills he’s learned both in the Special Ops and as an investigator. When push comes to shove, can Cam and Drea bring down a killer and have the future that is just waiting for them to claim?
When murder gives two strong lovers a second chance, will they be able to grab that chance, or will the killer hold the last deadly card? Drea and Cam will find out these answers and a whole lot more in Make Me Up. On just outside appearances, I would never have put Drea and Cam together, unless I wanted to see a smack down. However, I would have been so wrong. They were actually perfect together and perfectly matched where they needed to be. I really loved watching as Cam and Drea worked out not only the clues on whom set her up, but also how their relationship would be able to go forward. I knew that Drea was one strong woman and that was proven as she worked with Cam to clear her name and bring down the true killer and learn what was behind the murder. Cam proved that he was more than what he appeared as he pulled every string he had to keep Drea safe and claim her love.
Make Me Up will keep you page turning with its excellent combination of suspense, passion, and good-natured rubbing. While you don’t need to read this series in order to enjoy the books and the plots, however, I would suggest that you do for just the sure enjoyment of it and because there are a few threads that run through all the books so far.
