Two women. One terrible crime. Zero allies.

After being raped by a superior officer, MA3 Kim Lockhoff wants to leave the whole thing in the past. A cop herself, she knows all too well that it’s her word—and slutty reputation—against that of a respected Navy officer.

MA2 Reese Marion, a tough cop hiding her own trauma behind a hard-as-nails exterior, has no patience for pretty little princesses who use their cleavage to win favor with the guys. But when Reese is partnered with Kim, she slowly realizes that reputations can lie. Kim is whip-smart, ambitious—and scared. The man who attacked her won’t let anything damage his career, least of all Kim . . . or the baby she’s carrying as a result.

Isolated on Okinawa, thousands of miles away from home, the two women lean hard on each other. But when Kim confides in Reese, she unwittingly puts her new lover—and both of their careers—in the line of fire. Now her attacker just might have the leverage he needs to keep her quiet for good.

A tough read tackling difficult but sadly only too realistic subjects. Handled with grace and care, with a deserving happy ending. The pacing of this book was excellent, the characters drew me in from the very beginning, and once I started, I couldn't put it down.

1st time reading this author. Presents a pretty good story with a lot of heavy themes. Interesting reading about the military aspect of life from a woman's perspective. I liked watching the relationship between Kim and Reese develop.
