I had the privilege of reviewing this early and wow! The chemistry is hot. The premise is clever, and the sex is scorching. If you like a naughty man in uniform, this is a best bet.

What a HOTTT read!

I loved every bit of Armed and Desired. From the beginning where both Sergeant Alyssa Bloom and her rookie partner Nate Wilshire are secretly lusting for each other while unbeknownst having set up the same 1Night Stand date, via a crescendo of emotions, needs, and sexual tension in the middle chapters, to one of the hottest, most explosive bed scene finales I have ever read.

Great descriptions put me right in the setting. As for the characterization, D.C.

Can I just say, oh my goodness. This short is soooo steamy and full of sexual tension, I couldn't put it down. Excellent writing and descriptions. When story ended, I was left wanting more. DC Stone has done it again.

I was attracted to this story through its sexy cover. I then read the synopsis and knew I couldn’t resist reading it. It being a 1Night Stand story I knew it would be some quick and provocative for me to read.

Before we even get to that little excerpt we are introduced to Alyssa and Nate and the sexual chemistry that pours out of them can almost drown you. I have to say that Nate quickly became my favorite of the duo. The commanding, no-nonsense attitude that he has towards Alyssa is

Armed and Desired is another totally hot and wonderfully written book by DC Stone.
It was a short book and a very quick read but absolutely enjoyable.

If DC wanted to expand on their story, I am all for it.

If you haven't read any of DC work, you really should. They are all excellent!!

I have liked most of the Decadent Publishing's 1NS series and Armed & Desired is right up there with the others. D>S takes a short read and pack in the steaminess. Nate & Alyssa are partners on the police force and have lusted after each other for a while. But they keep it hidden because they don't want to cause any ripples on the job. They both make an appointment with Madam Eve an her One Night Stand agency not knowing that they were going to be paired up together. They now have the ...more

I’m giving this short a lower star rating because it was laden with small anomalies that could have easily been rectified had the story been read over, by anyone.

Certain words were over used. The sun, for one. The sun had been referenced seven times. To be honest, if I read one more description involving the sun I was liable to burn my kindle.

The descriptions used for the couple did not marry up with their actions. Alyssa was supposed to be calm and in control. Instead sh

I have loved all the Decadent Publishing 1NS stories I've read and this one is no exception. Love the tension in the beginning of the story, then the tension in the bedroom was explosive. Great characters with sexual chemistry but don't know how to act on it. Madame Eve to the rescue. Nate and Alyssa meet and let it all out, for Alyssa it took a bit of coaxing from Nate, but it was inevitable they would give in and listen to their hearts.

Very enjoyable story, highly recommended.

This was a really good short story about two officers that are attracted to each other, but don't want to risk their jobs if things don't work out. They both go through Madame Eve's 1Night Stand services and everything changes.

Not sure how my "to read" became a "read" with only 2 stars. Sorry! I'll read it and come back with my true rating soon. In the meantime, I gave it 4 stars, based on others because I didn't want to leave the 2 stars. :)
