A fighter since birth, Allegra “Ryder” Falcon would rather trade in her all-black wardrobe for head-to-toe hot pink than let anyone ever see the cracks in her tough exterior. But one night with a stranger changes everything.

Devin Harris may have given up his MMA fighting dreams for high fashion, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t always in control. So when someone embezzles millions under his watch, he isn’t going to let the private investigator working the case go it alone—even if she is the woman who blew him away in bed and then blew him off.

Just when it seems like it couldn’t get any hotter between Ryder and Devin, the case takes them to a tropical paradise where the danger increases. From the catwalk to the pineapple fields, they have to work together to track down the missing millions before the thief finds—and kills—them

Ryder Falcon. Shit, with a name like that she should be in skin-tight red leather, fighting super villains in a comic book.

This Year’s Black starts off with Ryder having to work a case of stolen funds for a department store with her one-night stand Devin. And let’s just say he wasn’t too happy she snuck out and avoided his attempts to contact her. Not only that but he feels responsible that an employee has been stealing from them. Seems like a pretty standard mystery with sexual tension storyline, right? Wrong! First of all, I was completely surprised how fast Ryder figured out who the thief was. But I later realized that it didn’t matter if they knew who it was because they weren’t going to apprehend the crook easily. And that’s where all the fun came from. Having Ryder and Devin forced to be together on this case was great. Their interactions were what made the book. It was basically like watching an episode of Castle and I love Castle so take that as a big compliment in case there was any doubt ;).

The only downside to the book is that it was too short for me. It just flew by and I wanted the case to be stretched out more even though there is only so much chasing you can do in a book before it gets boring. Call me greedy but I wanted more…more wit…more tension…more mystery. I think I’ll just settle for picking up High-Heeled Wonder, the first book in the series that features Ryder’s brother, Ted. All in all, it was a good, fast read with great kick ass characters.

About Avery Flynn

Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
