Review by Maimeo's Angels: Hostile Desires by Melissa Schroeder

As a cold case heats up, two former adversaries discover there is a thin line between love and hate.


Seven years ago, Dr. Elle Middleton’s world crashed and burned. She has rebuilt her life and found comfort in her work as the medical examiner for TFH. When a new case leads to a cold case, she is beyond excited for the challenge, until she finds out the one man she wants to avoid is her partner on the case.

Graeme McGregor isn’t any happier with the assignment. The doctor gets under his skin in more ways than one. He’s avoided her and his attraction by keeping his distance from her, but working with her has made it impossible to resist taking a little taste.  
One kiss leads to another…then to a full blown affair. But even as they draw closer to each other, secrets from that long ago murder rise to the surface. The killer’s determination to stay free leads to a dangerous confrontation that puts both of their lives in peril and could leave TFH in shambles.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Melissa Schroeder is an automatic purchase for me and I was extremely excited to see if who was next in the Task Force Hawaii series. The Task Force Hawaii team works on a variety of cases in conjunction with local, state and federal agencies. 

Over the last 12 months I have found myself gravitating to the romantic suspense genre and in my humble opinion Melissa Schroeder is one of the best I have rea. She brings the stories to life so well and he writing is of an extremely high standard.

I thoroughly enjoyed Elle and Graeme’s story. In the first book in the series, Seductive Reasoning, they were often found to be sniping at each other. Now they need to work together to solve a cold case and ensure that a killer is brought to justice.

Working together brings feelings to the service that neither of them wants to admit too or even act on. It’s a fine line between love and hate. 

There are so many twists and turns to this book that I was riveted and stayed up late in the night. I couldn’t put it down.

This book is exactly what I have come to expect from Melissa Schroeder, well written and thoroughly enjoyable. I anxiously await the next book in the Task Force Hawaii series.

If you are looking for a book that is hot, spicy, romantic and suspenseful, then look no further. 

Congratulations Ms. Schroeder, you have another winner on your hands. 

Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital Melissa has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. After becoming hooked, she read close to 300 novels in one year, deciding that romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspenses she had been writing. She has had over 25 short stories, novellas and novels published in four years with seven different publishers.
Being a brat she swore never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major with two brats of their own. They live wherever the military sticks them which for the first time in years is a place where THE BUGS DIE!
