#BookReview: Tie Me Down by Tracy Wolff #erotic #suspense @TracyWolff

Blurb

As the only woman on her homicide squad, star investigator Genevieve Delacroix maintains a tough-as-nails attitude that keeps men at arm’s length. She never gives in to her secret fantasies—until she meets a mysterious stranger who teaches her how little control she really has over her mind or her body.

Cole Adams arrives in New Orleans believing Genevieve is his last hope for solving the murder of his younger sister. He just doesn’t expect the hard-bitten detective to look like a blond bombshell. Once he breaks through her inhibitions, he soon finds an unexpected obsession driving Genevieve right to the edge of desire . . . and beyond. But when the serial killer who has been terrorizing the streets of the French Quarter sets his sights on Genevieve, they realize that they both have let down their guard. And losing control can have fatal consequences.
Maya's Review
Get ready for an erotic, suspenseful ride. This story draws you in from the start and keeps you turning the pages till the end.

Take one tough female cop who has to prove her competence and keep control at work, add a domineering male lead who needs to be in control on and off the bedroom and you have a battle of wills and some explosively erotic scenes. Mix in a serial killer who has the bulls-eye aimed at Genevieve and this story ramps up with suspense.

Genevieve is a likeable character. I sympathised when she was being treated badly by her boss. But I got annoyed with her for allowing Cole to control her the way he did sometimes. For a cop who was supposed to be hard as nails and sensible, she had no qualms jumping into a stranger's bed and letting him giving him free rein over her body when there was a killer running loose, especially when he was refusing to give her very basic information about himself. This made her seem insensible and at a clash with the kind of character she was supposed to be.

The love scenes were written beautifully and jam-packed with emotions. The chemistry between Cole and Genevieve was sexy white hot. But honestly, I think the author over-did the sex scenes, if that's at all possible. There were just too many fully described sex scenes, in my opinion, and they overshadowed some of the suspense in the plot. By the third scene I began skim-reading them.  I know, this is an erotic romance and I read plenty of those, by the way. But each scene has to bring something new about the characters to the reader. We need to see the characters grow, in their sexual journey or in their personal life in each interaction. This wasn't the case here. It kind of felt repetitive and gratuitous.

However, two things rescued this story for me. First was the showdown and revelation of the villain. I love the way this was delivered and the loose ends tied together. I had my suspicions about the serial killer and was at the edge of my seat when he was revealed. Also Cole's role in this scene was nicely done.

The final love scene between Genevieve and Cole was absolutely beautiful and restored my faith in Genevieve. Her payback totally made up for all of Cole's previous actions. I don't mind a domineering hero as long as the heroine gets her own back. If I were her I'd be doing it again and again, he would have to sleep with one eye open. LOL.

All in all, this is a great book, packed with suspense and sizzling romance. I totally loved this author's writing style and will be hunting down more of her books. If you enjoy erotic romance or romantic suspense, go and pick up a copy.
