Kaleidoscope by Kristen Ashley  When old friends become new lovers...anything can happen.

Sexy, gifted, and loyal, PI Jacob Decker is a tall, cool drink of perfection who had Emmanuelle Holmes at "hello." His relationship with Emme's best friend kept them apart for years, but things have changed. Now that a case has brought him to Gnaw Bone, Colorado, the road is wide open for Emme and Deck to explore something hotter and deeper than Emme dreamed possible. So why is she sabotaging the best thing that's ever happened to her? 

It isn't easy to catch Deck off guard, but Emme does just that when she walks back into his life after nine long years. The curvy brunette had her charms back in the day, but now she's a bona fide knockout . . . and she wants to rekindle their friendship. Deck, however, wants more. Emme's always been the one; she excites Deck's body and mind like no other woman can. But a dark chapter from Emme's past overshadows their future together. Now only Deck can help her turn the page-if she'll let him . . .

In this story two friends meet after 8 years and find out that they both had feelings for each other while he was dating then marring her best friend. Jacob Decker owns a private investigative service, actually partner and is back in town because of a string of burglaries that the leaders are using some high school students. One of the students commented suicide and now the chief of police is calling in for all the help he can get. Jacob runs into Emmauelle Holmes surprised to see her he is now wanting to start a relationship with her. His friends are telling him to slow down and she likewise wants to takes it slow as well. He on the other hand wants to rush everything and in a way force her into a relationship and to do things to her home at a faster pace than she wants to do them. Every time she questions some of his suggestions he somehow turns it around to make her feel like it is her problem all along. I get that the character is an alpha male and so he feels he needs to fix everything and when you get to a point in the story she has a nervous breakdown by him getting her to deal with something that was traumatic as a child. But before that when she found out that he was having her followed, I think most women regardless especially not being married or engaged would have felt very threatened by his actions. I know as a father I would. There were parts of this story I really liked but other parts felt like he just used his powers and friendship to by. She makes it work at the end but as a father I would be very watchful. They do find who was doing the break INS and the title of the book is explained. I really liked the ending that part was very romantic and brought the story to a good finish. I got this book from net galley.
