[Pat's Review]: "Make Me Up"

Make Me Up by Avery Flynn
Publisher: Entangled: Ignite (February 16, 2015)
Series: Killer Style,
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Former special ops-turned private-investigator Cam Hardy leaves a trail of broken hearts wherever he goes. He's all charm and sex appeal, and who can blame him for putting it to good use? Besides, it works damn well on the stunning and tough-as-nails makeup artist Drea Sanford. Only this time, Cam may be in over his head...

Drea is trying to keep her naughty affair with Cam a secret. After all, he's Harbor City's version of a Casanova...if Casanova had a motorcycle. When Cam makes their hot little liaison known to the public, however, Drea vows never to have sex with him again. Then one of her clients turns up dead. Now Drea is suspect number one—and she needs Cam's help. But sleeping with him is one thing...trusting him is quite another.

Pat's Review:

Cam Hardy was in military spec. ops., now working as a P.I. for Maltese Security. He and Drea Sanford have had a "friends with benefits" relationship for the last several months. Drea's one rule is that their relationship stays secret. At a BBQ with all their friends, he breaks that rule. Drea is gone.

Drea Sanford is a highly sought after make-up artist. Her fees are expensive, so her clientele is among the rich and famous. She is beautiful, sexy and talented. She lived through a tragedy in her childhood that had newspapers and people talking. now her privacy is the most important thing she values. Against her better judgement she has allowed Cam into her life. "If anyone could carry off absolutely wicked and totally charismatic at the same time, it was Cam." After kicking him to the curb, she heads to her appointment with her client Natalie Orton. She is an aging trophy wife out for revenge. She plans on making a laughing stock of her husband and without a pre-nup agreement, taking him for all he was worth. Drea's make up genius will help her along. But, after applying Natalie's personal favorite make-up.......she's dead. The evidence is in Drea's make-up case, and she is the suspect. Cam hears the news and is on his motorcycle and by her side. Not only does she have to let him back in, she has to trust him!

This novel is action packed, suspenseful and very sexy, with some laughs thrown in. We catch up with friends from former Killer Style stories and meet the new hire  Alex Lee.  Hmmmm, I think he is going to have quite a story. I recommend this exciting roller coaster ride of a novel.
