Synopsis (Goodreads):
I’m an Italian-Texan woman in a family full of cops. I’m passionate and shoot before I think. You only f*ck with me if you’re stupid.

Photograph cheating spouses. Hand over the evidence. Cash my check.

That was my plan when I returned home to Holly Woods, Texas, and became a private investigator.

Finding the dead body in my dumpster? Yeah… Given the choice, I think I would have opted out of that little discovery, especially since all three of my brothers are cops. And my Italian grandmother is sure the reason I’m single is because of my job.

Of course, my connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I’m hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved bang-smack into the path of Detective Drake Nash. My nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch.

Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something. In another life.

So now all I have to do is avoid my nonna’s blind dates, try not to blackmail my brothers into giving me confidential police files, and absolutely do not point my gun at Drake Nash. Or kiss him. Or jump his bones.

All while I hunt down the killer.

Sounds totally simple—until a second body proves that sometimes things that start as coincidences don’t always end up that way…
Thoughts on Twisted Bond: Okay, okay. So this book has murder and dead bodies and all sorts of other fun stuff, but HOLY WOW the way Noelle and Drake snipe at one another absolutely made me giggle. They have a very passionate form of verbal foreplay and they don't even seem to realize they're doing it until it's pointed out REPEATEDLY. It was hilarious. HILARIOUS.

Their fighting and sparring and sizzling glances made this book for me.

Which isn't to say the murder and other mayhem wasn't good, because it was. I'm just smitten with their sexy fighting.

Beyond that, though, we have the aforementioned dead bodies. As the clues start to pile up, Noelle realizes there's more going on then it looks like on the surface. So she flirt-fights with Drake. She throws in a few glares and steamy looks. The two of them kinda, sorta team up to figure out what's going on.

Kinda, sorta.

Anywho. Fun, sexy, a touch of the danger, and lots of that flirt-fighting. THOSE TWO, MAN. They were amusing to watch.
