The Murder Between Us ~ Tal Bauer
"Damn Midwestern Men!"
There are simply not enough stars for this one!
This is my first book by Tal Bauer, but it certainly won't be my last! I picked it up after it was recommended to me so many times, by so many people. I'm sometimes a bit cautious with books that are so massively hyped, but I gave it a chance anyway.
BEST THING I EVER DID!
There really isn't a whole lot wrong with this story, if you REALLY want to nit pick, Cole and Noah's relationship is a bit insta-love, but honestly, you can feel their chemistry, their connection, from their first meeting so it's really no surprise.
I'm the first to admit that I'm a bit slow on the uptake on guessing 'whodunit'; but this one came out of left field for me, I just didn't see it until it was too late. I enjoyed the police procedural part of this story, and there was quite a bit of action that kept the pace of the book high.
My heart broke for Noah, his statement of 'I just want to be me' brought a tear to my eye. He makes himself so emotionally (and you could also say physically) vulnerable in Vegas, he was really lucky he found Cole.
If you enjoy intensely passionate love stories, an excellently suspensful serial killer theme, police procedural type stories, and one of the best HEAs I've read in a long time, don't go past this one!!
