Rockfort Security operative Shane Gallagher has been brought into S&D Systems to find a security leak. Confidential information has been stolen, and Shane suspects Elena Reyes, a systems analyst with the access and know-how to pull it off. As he finds excuses to get close to her, their attraction is too strong to ignore, but how can Shane trust the very woman he's investigating?
Or Not to Trust
Elena has spent her life proving herself, but now she's risking it all: everything she's worked for, and her growing feelings for Shane. Much as she wants to trust the devastatingly sexy, hard-as-nails investigator, she can't let herself fall for him...the stakes are too high.

York's second Rockfort Security romantic thriller (after Bad Nights) is loaded with repetitious writing, malapropisms, and factual errors. Elayna Reyes is an IT professional for S&D Systems; she wants to be a good girl but instead is a trouble magnet. Trouble includes Shane Gallagher, an ostensibly top-level security specialist who comes off as an overwhelmed amateur. York dwells endlessly on mundane details, preventing any tension from building. She focuses time and again on the wrong thing at the wrong moment, providing two pages of details on a banana split but a mere 33 words to the consummation of Elayna and Shane's relationship. Shifts of perspective undermine the suspense by rehashing events or presenting revelations to the reader long before the protagonists figure out what's going on. There's a high body count but everyone who dies is nameless, faceless, or unsympathetic. The alleged romance is rushed, unconvincing, and boring. What ought to be a gripping adventure that combines family loyalty and passion fails to deliver. (July)
