My Rating:

Book Blurb: When Tilly went into business as a private detective, she thought it would be all brilliant deductive reasoning and car chases. She was not prepared for the deluge of calls from suspicious lovers hiring her to entrap their love rat partners, but when times are hard, you take what's on offer - which is how, despite two left feet, she came to find herself learning the Argentine tango. 
But is the tango teaching lothario all he seems to be? And when he makes his hot Latin moves on her, will she really be able to stay professional and resist them? 
Tilly finds herself tangled up in the tango, hot on the tail of a mystery. She even manages to fit in a car chase, though the brilliant deductive reasoning doesn't work out so well. But where her brain might miss out, her body certainly doesn't. They don't call sex the horizontal tango for nothing, it seems. 

Reader Advisory: This book contains a spanking scene and light voyuerism and exhibitionism in relation to sex in a car.

Crystal's Thoughts: Tilly is on her first case as a detective.  A client needs her to see if her fiancĂ©e is worthy of the upcoming marriage and Tilly is to become the honeytrap.  She is to get her target to flirt with her and possibly try to take it to the next level.  She is hesitant in taking the case, but needs the money for over due bills and credibility within her profession, but isn't too sure this is the way to do it.  Her target is a dance instructor named Norman, but when Norman accepts her plea for extra dance lessons, she realized after going to far with her assignment, that there has been a case of mistaken identity. Enter, Calum.  Extraordinarily tall, handsome and debonair, Calum has his sights set on the small and green Tilly.  Back on the case with the real Norman,  Calum insists on accompanying Tilly to tail her next paycheck.  They take off on a ride that they will never forget.  

This didn't take too long to read.  It was short but sweet.  There were only three characters with lines in the story and a forth off to the side.  It was strange reading such a short story.  I was thrown off by the suddenness of the intimacy, meeting a man of mistaken identity and hooking up, but if I were to hook up with someone for a one night stand, turned long term, let it be him. :)

Hi Beck, thanks a million for posting this review. I'm glad you found Calum appealing ;). I enjoyed creating him, that's for sure!
