That is another point that makes this novel less “Pretty Woman” romance and more Cop/Thriller novel. Usually in a romance, undercover cops seem to be able to stop the criminals without dirtying their hands; how is it possible that they are living among the criminals, behaving like criminals and never once doing something against the law? It’s not possible, and indeed in Undercover Sins, Ty has to lower himself, and being used and abused, to be able to maintain his disguise.
Considering Demetrius, he is not a saint, but I have to say I was expecting the turn for his character; and even if the author tried to shift the cards on the table, I was not deceived. Demetrius had something in him that exuded who he was. Again I appreciated that, despite the interest he obviously had in Ty, he was not taking back his intention of using him for his own purposes. Demetrius had a mission, and Ty was the key to an important step on that mission.
The sex is hot, but there are multiple partners (remember the hustler profession of Ty); lucky for me, when the sex is not between the main characters (Ty and Demetrius), the author didn’t indulge: that sex had a purpose, but the purpose was not to entertain the reader.
