Wild Cards by Katalina Leon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
oh how i loved these two! kao gets sent to the dessert to work as PHD, paranormal house detective, in a las vegas casino. when there is a murder, he's one of the first called in to look at the situation. what he didn't expect to happen was being paired up with the cute redhead he had his eye on since arriving at the casino. as it turns out, adara, is part elemental, just like himself. only he's water and she is fire. things between them sizzle from the get go but their focus has to stay on the case at hand, trying to outsmart the police and try and find the killer before the real cops do because of one thing everyone is sure: it's not a human doing the killing.
as kao and adara are ordered to go undercover as a couple, the murder investigation is going bumpy and when another person ends up dead, it gets even more difficult to find clues. but working together does something to both adara and kao and though both are convinced that being of opposite element, this may just be the key for them them to make it work as they figure out clue after clue.
i loved the previous stories in this series but adara and kao ... they are literally sizzling and steaming up the room! i'm wondering if kao doesn't have a naughty cousin who wants to visit *winks* this being the fifth in series of stand alone stories i'm starting to feel sad when i have to say goodbye to the CIV world.

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
