ARC Review: The Last Detail by Melissa Schroeder

"Trust isn’t easy when the ones you want most are out to get you. 

Ten years after she ran away from Earth, Lou Campbell is one job—just one more collar—away from earning enough credits to go home. All she has to do is lure Sam Dawson within range of her handcuffs with the promise of fast, hard sex. Easy.
Once she gets him there, keeping her own hands off him isn’t so easy. 

Sam’s committed his share of sins, but he’s not guilty of selling secrets. Before he can convince the sexiest bounty hunter he’s ever seen that he’s been betrayed, all hell breaks loose. And he’s on the run with a false accusation on his hands—and a bleeding woman in his arms. 

Alone in her boss’s safe house, Lou and Dawson’s simmering attraction explodes into full-blown fireworks.
When Jared Flores walks in on his best hunter and ex-lover in bed together, the surprise is mutual. Worse, the need he has long felt for both of them overrides his better judgment. After the fists fly, the sparks catch fire into a budding three-way romance. 

Then Sam disappears, leaving Jared and Lou in a race against time to not only retrieve their lover, but save his life. 

Warning: Hot M/F sex, M/F/M sex, and holy moly some really hot MMF sex amongst lots of weapons and fire fights. Deceitful family members, nasty set ups, and an Alpha male whose lovers have naughty punishments in mind—when they catch him. "

Melissa Schroeder is still new to me but the way her creativity came out in this novella which made it a differently hot read. It is filled with adventure, suspense and romance.

Lou is a bounty hunter who has one assignment left before she can return to earth. Her boss, Jared gives her the task to catch Sam. Jared has not only been Lou's boss for 10 years but has been in love with her. He didn't think she was ready so he has kept it to himself.

Sam is undercover on an assignment when he meets the sexy Lou and he has to have her. Sam never thought he would end up handcuffed and her prisoner. Even though he has been captured it doesn't change the fact that he still wants her and believes their connection is the real deal. 

At first I had a hard time getting into the story because it started out a little slow but when it picked up I started enjoying the ride. The history between the characters made it an excellent read. This world that Schroeder built was interesting. And I loved the twists that were thrown in through out the story. 

I loved how Sam and Jared's characters were and it is true that opposites do attract. To be honest Lou needs both of them in here life because they both bring something to the table for her. The scorching sex scenes will have you turning down your ac to make it cooler for you.

I just wished it was a little longer. I felt like their was more to this story that wasn't told. Overall, I really got into this story and I am looking forward to the future releases of Melissa Schroeder. Happy Reading!!
