Wyatt Banks is ready to give one woman the world. Unfortunately, his job as a cop tends to interfere with other goals. When Wyatt is sent deep undercover to investigate a sex slave ring, he doesn’t have time to do anything but focus on staying alive in a dark and dangerous underworld.

Wyatt isn’t alone though in his quest to save the women that are being sold into sexual slavery. 

His partner, FBI Agent Andrea Somerville, is immersed just as deeply as he is, and she’s the bait to lure the sex slavers out into the open, as she poses as an erotic dancer in an attempt to snare the enemy. But danger runs as high as the sparks between them, and now Wyatt is caught between the job he loves and the woman he wants. 

A fast paced suspenseful romance filled with intrigue and raw passion!

The story:
I must admit this story surprised me, as the first half is very different to the rest of this series. While the first three books are relatively light and breezy romances this one is much grittier and had some real bite to the story.

Local cop, Wyatt, has been sent undercover to infiltrate a sex slave ring, that is believed to be kidnapping dancers from their strip club and selling them to wealthy customers. FBI agent, Andrea joins the investigations, posing as a vulnerable stripper, ripe for kidnapping. As Wyatt and Andrea work together to set the trap and catch the criminals, their strictly professional relationship gets complicated when the sexual attraction between them grows. Crossing that line may not only risk the investigation, but also their lives. But how long can these two deny their connection…and more importantly can it survive away from the intense undercover operation?

The characters:
When Wyatt and Andrea first meet, he's a little gruff and standoffish, not hiding his uncertainty that Andrea may not be able to handle the job. But it soon becomes clear that he's rough exterior is no more than an undercover persona he's created. He's also very protective of Andrea, and tries to shield her from as much of the heinous actively going on in the nightclub. Wyatt is surprisingly sweet and unlike many male NA characters, he's actually looking to find love and settle down.

Andrea is a strong and passionate heroine. She's not afraid of hard work and shows sheer determination to catch the criminals she's investigating. I also loved that when it came down to it, Andrea showed she had the lady balls to take charge and make the first move. She's a very empowering character.

We also get to see the rest of the Last Call cast of characters is the second half of the book which was excellent! Sawyer's always fabulous at creating a family characters that you just wish you were a part of.

The romance:
The attraction between these two was obvious from the beginning. But working undercover in a strip club makes things difficult. Despite feeling attracted to Wyatt, Andrea is convinced Wyatt's interest is purely professional. But after being forced into a compromising (and oh so hot!) situation, they struggle to deny the attraction. The romance between these two is very seductive, but also has a few very sweet moments too.

The writing:
Sawyer has a real knack for creating unique and interesting stories and this one is no exception! The first half of the books was very fast paced with lost of suspense and intrigue, and as the story progresses, their is a nice balance of light romance that has been excellent throughout the whole series.

With a Twist is a fast paced suspenseful romance filled with intrigue and raw passion! Looking forward to the next book in the series for Casey's story.
