Under the Surface(1)

Welcome to Eye Candy, the East Side’s hottest nightclub where the bartenders are hot, the cocktails are fancy, and danger lurks just under the surface…

Eve Webber, the gorgeous and savvy owner of Eye Candy, knows better than anyone that growing up on the wrong side of the tracks comes with certain complications. Determined to run a clean business and fix up the East Side, Eve’s plans get temporarily stalled when a potential new hire walks into her bar. The sexual chemistry crackling between them is a potent distraction…even if she refuses to mix business with the promise of pleasure.

Detective Matt Dorchester lives by strict rules that have kept him alive in impossible situations. When his latest undercover assignment has him playing a bartender, his desire for the passionate owner has him breaking every single one. Eve is in danger and her life depends on his secrecy. But once their attraction reaches a climactic conclusion, Matt must make a desperate choice: Tell her the truth about who he really is—or risk a once-in-a-lifetime love to save her life?

Review of Under The Surface

Review (4 Stars):  Under The Surface was an entertaining read with the perfect amount of sexual chemistry and romantic suspense.  Eve is the gorgeous owner of the popular bar, Eye Candy, and she is determined to make her business a success even when the deck is stacked against her.  When new bartender, Matt Dorchester, comes into her bar, Eve’s world is about to be turned upside down.  This sexy man is exactly what she needs and he will do anything to protect her from the dangerous storm that is heading their way.

Under The Surface is the fourth book in the Alpha Ops series and I loved every minute of it.  This novel can easily be a stand alone but it is helpful to read the rest in the series to get a background on these characters.  Eve and Matt were an explosive couple with great chemistry and their scenes together made you want to see more from them.  Ms. Calhoun is a great writer and this novel was well-written, fast-paced and kept me intrigued until the very end.  Looking forward to reading book number five in the series.
