about

Detective Chief Inspector Moses Reilly of Scotland Yard is the consummate bachelor, married to his job – and for good reason. On a covert mission to infiltrate an international crime ring, he poses undercover on dates to find criminals running online dating scams that separate unwitting love struck participants from their life savings. His powerful deduction skills and level head can usually keep him several steps ahead of the women he meets – but his latest date is making his head spin.
 
The mysterious Zelda Sachsen works as a Guardian for G4S, a private security firm in London that has a global reach and deep pockets. She is working undercover trying to sniff out a crime ring that has international implications of its own when her sensitive nose detects an intriguing smell that she can’t let go of.  
 
Their shared commitment to relentlessly pursuing the truth – and an abnormally creative murder near G4S headquarters -- bring Scotland Yard and G4S together, lead by DCI Reilly and Zelda. As Zelda turns Reilly’s world upside down, can they both keep their heads for long enough to crack the case?

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars- slow building / intriguing story 3.5 stars--BUY ME LOVE is the first installment in Julie Tetel Andresen’s contemporary, adult BUY ME LOVE SHAPESHIFTER paranormal, romantic suspense series. This is Detective Chief Inspector Moses Reilly of Scotland Yard, and G4S Guardian Zelda Sachsen’s story line. Told from several third person points of view including Zelda and Moses BUY ME LOVE focuses on the hunt for a killer. While undercover investigating on online dating scam DCI Moses Reilly meets the sultry Zelda Sachsen and many of her ‘alternate personalities’. When a body is found ‘posed’ on a bench in Russell Square Moses will come face to face to the ‘real’ Zelda Sachsen, a Guardian and agent for the secretive G4S, and more than sparks will fly when the couple begin working together to solve the mystery behind the body in the park. What ensues is the immediate attraction and building relationship between our leading couple as they dig deeper into the who, what and why of the Russell Square murder. BUY ME LOVE is a story of murders, mystery, the supernatural and fated mates. While Moses believes in the existence of the paranormal including werewolves and shifters, he is surprised to learn that they live and work under his nose. Zelda is an investigator and agent for G4S, and finds herself on a path towards forever when partnered with Scotland Yard’s prestigious Detective Chief Inspector Moses Reilly. Their immediate connection concerns our leading hero but Zelda knows exactly why she is attracted to Moses Reilly. The $ex scenes are intimate, fade to black and mostly implied. There are a large number of secondary and supporting characters including several members of the Scotland Yard police force, as well as the introduction of the local werewolf pack and its’ Alpha Egon Hanover. The world building focuses on the investigations and take down of a killer; the attraction between two people whose lives intersect on more than one occasion; and the existence of a supernatural world in modern times. BUY ME LOVE is a slow building story line where, approximately, the first forty percent introduces the players and background surrounding the murder investigation in Russell Square Park, and the undercover operation focusing on an online dating scam. I struggled with the infinitely slow unveiling in the first part of the story including little to no mention about the paranormal/supernatural aspects of the story, but thereafter, the action, mystery and suspense including the fated relationship between Moses and Zelda begins to build until the final reveal. The premise is intriguing and entertaining; the characters are colorful and dynamic. I will caution North American readers that the story line is awash in British language, text, slang and figures of speech that may or may not be familiar. There are also a couple of ‘erroneous errors’ as it pertains to American ideals and realities including the confusion between Daffy vs Donald Duck ;) .
