Title: Designed for Murder
Some fashion statements can kill...
Mika Ito combines her two favorite things in life—textile design and live-action role-playing (LARP)—by creating costumes for her fellow Magic Battledome gamers. Lately, someone's been assaulting LARPers and stealing their costumes. Concerned for the safety of her friends, Mika hires Maltese Security...only to discover that the lead investigator is the super-hot stranger she just hooked up with.
Carlos Castillo is all too familiar with Magic Battledome. A former legend in role-playing circles, he was all about gaming, until things went very, very wrong for him. Now he's forced to return to the game undercover—as Mika's boyfriend—to find some answers. Only playing “boyfriend” with his gorgeous one-night stand is more temptation than a guy can withstand...
Someone wants the costumes enough to kill for them. And when it comes to murder, nothing is what it seems...

She decides to hire Maltese Security to not only keep herself safe, but to find out who wants the costumes and why.
Carlos used to be a legendary gamer until one of his friends almost was killed. He stepped away. Now working for Maltese Security, he meets Mika when she brings her case to them. Both are surprised that they have met before. Deciding to help Mika, Carlos jumps into the case and back into the gaming world-but as Mika’s boyfriend.
As Carlos and Mike work the case, they find they have a lot in common and just click. Personal attraction flares and their chemistry is super hot! It’s apparent they are perfect for each other. He wants to protect her but danger is lurking.
Designed for Murder is an entertaining and sizzling read. Add in the fantasy and mystery aspects, and you have a book that is hard to put down! These characters are easy to like and very relatable. I didn’t know much about the LARPing and that was interesting in itself! The intrigue created is the motivator and you want to find out all the answers. The author Avery Flynn does a wonderful job in creating a story that balances sexy scenes with real live mystery. All put together gives you a very exciting and captivating read! I definitely would like to read more from Avery Flynn in the future!
