My thoughts: 

The story and plot, like in the first book, HEAT, are well-written, kept me glued to the pages. The world-building is flawless. 

Sizzle definitely made me re-evaluate my morality <insert crazy, nervous laugh>. There's too much violence in Moon and Gomez' world yet I love every bit of it. I adore all characters here, and their bonding as family - amazing! 

Although the romance part of Gomez and Celina is convincing, I realized, the excitement and enjoyment is less compared to Moon and Mak. Probably because I don't really like Celina's character.  At times, I find her shallow and weak, didn't do much thinking about the whole mafia thing. The conflict for her was that Moon and Gomez' world is dangerous, not something evil or morally wrong. 

Sex scenes - I usually struggle at this. Yes, it is so dirty but not offensive.  

I really am happy with this series, looking forward to reading the next book about Dax!

About the book:

Alex Gomez is the enforcer for the largest crime syndicate in Arizona and makes no excuses. His hands are covered in blood and the lines between right and wrong blurred.

Celina Thomas has a deadly secret. Only money can fix her problem and she needs a lot of it, quickly. She's gifted with a body and face that men are willing to pay for. She makes the decision to enter the world of high class escorts but her heart cries at the injustice.

One night with Alex and Celina's plan turns upside down.

One night with Celina and Alex's heart of ice begins to melt.

Celina's secret could kill them both. Can she trust Alex and place her life in his hands? Can Alex let her escape regardless of the consequences?

Passion ignites as Alex and Celina sizzle with burning need while death lurks on the sweltering Phoenix horizon.
