I really liked Maggie and John's story, I loved the bond and Travis's role through the book, this is one of those dtory where you feel the connection from the start, but what I really loved about it was the way their relationship progressed, they were honest with each other from the beginning, they took it slow and I really felt them falling in love, I'm not one for insta-love books so to have a story that is both real and sweet was great.... the built-up with the serial rapist was am ...more

OMG, another great hit between John and Sarge. John is retired Marine and he moves in next to Sarge, she is having problems with her ex-husband. Then John being a Marine steps up and protects her. If you are in trouble, it great to have a Marine watch your back. Sparks fly, action happens. This a must read, as a wife of a Marine veteran, I highly recommend this book.
I have nothing negative to say about this book. It's a good, solid story with clean editing. It didn't grip my attention like some do, which would have earned it that fifth star, but it was not boring either. Very well done.
There is a connected plot through the book of the Kansas City (is that in Kansas or Missouri?) Police trying to catch a serial rapist. And then there is the primary story of romance in the Police. The suspense and the mystery are done really well, the women are strong, and the men are macho, loyal and sexy!
I will definitely continue this series!
