Fox by Kelly Oliver

She wakes up partially nude behind a dumpster at the bar.  She doesn't remember much after she met this nice intern who bought her two specialty drinks.  She was waiting for Jack but he didn't show up on time.  She decides the intern must have slipped her a mickey but she hasn't been raped.  Something worse happened...

JKS Communications and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.

Jessica has an interesting female friend who has a variety of defensive skills, rides a motorcyle, and is always there for her.  She calls her.  When she faints in her presence, she wakes up in the hospital.  That's when she finds out she wasn't raped.  So why is she so sore down there?

There's an interesting mix in this story.  Jack is her friend and would like to be more.  Her girlfriend is Russian and has connections to the Russian Mafia.  The intern is making his own money by illegally acquiring eggs from females he deems to be of better genetic quality, and it gets all tangled up real soon.

I enjoyed the Russian tough guys, Jack's willingness to do anything to help Jessica, and even the subplot was interesting.  It was a nasty subject to read about but the crime is solved.  The best part is that Jack and Jessica have been through enough to realize they do love each other.  I like happy endings.
