This was an ok, short read for me. I finished it off on my lunch break at work. It had steam, an alpha police officer hero and a likable heroine.
-no cheating
-no ow/om drama
-pushing away by hero with a 2 year separation - for those interested, neither had sex with others but the hero did kiss other women "to forget the heroine" but it turned him off

This is the first book I have ever read by this author and I'm still fanning myself. This is the first book in the Blue Line series. I could not put this book down. It only took me three hours to read this addictive book. It is about one hundred pages but it has everything you wanted and more.

Sophie Gallo had a hard life growing up and now she just lost her other parent. She was in a bad place in her life until she saw the hot cop Luke. They had instant chemistry so much that they made love on

So this was a super quick read that is the first of a series. I mean it took me an hour to read it … so yes short. BUT .. the story line was good. I did think it seemed somewhat rushed in events between Sophie and Luke but you have to remember the titles are adding time to the events. I cant really say much about the story as it would give things away. However I can tell you there are some really great secondary characters.

Reckless Conduct is the first book in a brand new series by Brandy Ayers and was a short read that had me entertained from the start. It didn’t take me long to read this book but found that it was the perfect amount of pages because it was able to deliver a very cute story that had me laughing and smiling throughout it. There were some parts within the story that had me at the edge of my seat and I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what happened next.

Reckless Conduct is a hot, sexy, quick read that you can easily read in an hour or so. I must say, Luke could frisk and cuff me any day of the week, lord this may is one sexy cop. Sophie was feisty, was pissed at Luke and for good reason and I loved how she gave as good as she got when he would aggravate her. Hell if it were me, Luke would have been somehow cuffed to the bars, naked in a holding cell as pay back

Whoa! Reckless Conduct by Brandy Ayers is one hot read. This may be a short story in length but it is not lacking in anything. This is the first book in the Blue Line series. A series about a small suburban police squad that is full of entertainment. This was steamy and cute, funny and a bit scary. It had everything I could ask for in a story. Brandy Ayers was able to bring out every emotion I have in such a short time and I am in complete awe of her for it.

This novella starts out hot and ends hot. There’s even hotness in the middle! We meet Luke and Sophie while they are playing a drinking card game at a local bar. The attraction between the two is obvious and they end up in bed. However, Sophie was under the impression that they were more than a one night stand. And Luke, well Luke was only thinking with his “Little Luke” and ran as soon as he could.

A definite 4.5 stars for Reckless Conduct , Blue Lines Book 1 by Brandy Ayers.
I will honestly admit that there were times while reading this book, I completely hated and wanted to hurt Luke. As I got further into the book, I got a better understanding as to why he had acted the way he did. And let me tell you, he totally redeemed himself.

Reckless Conduct is the first novel in the Blue Line series by Brandy Ayers.

Luke who is a cop and Sophie who is the niece of police chief starts the book by playing poker, the night ends on a one night stand and Luke leaves.

Two years later, Luke is still not admitting his feelings for Sophie. Will he ever confess?

I really enjoyed this novella. I wish there was more to this story. It was fast read that was satisfying is some areas but left me wanting more in others.

Loved the chemistry between Luke and Sophie.

There’s history between these two. One hot night of mind blowing sex and Luke panics and leaves quickly. Sophie is stunned she thought they had a connection and was devastated when Luke left her alone.

Now two years later and Sophie is still working at same station that Luke is. She has a lot of anger still bottled up inside her. Luke is just as cocky and pretty much does anything to get a rise out of her. But Luke has a secret. He has always liked Sop

Really quick and hot read! The interactions between these two had me laughing and wanting to smack him up side his head at times.

He thought one night was all he was going to get and they definitely made it a night to remember! He thinks he's doing the right thing but can't stop wanting her every time he's around her. She's all that he thinks about. No one else will do.

She acted like she hated him until they just couldn't go on that way. Watching these two through the drama, angst, etc. had me r

This was a cute novella about Luke and Sophie. Luke a cop and Sophie the chief's niece, and the receptionist at the station, have a one night stand. Two years later Luke is still getting on Sophie's nerves and Luke is still hiding the fact that he wants her. Will Sophie forgive him for his actions? Will Luke man up and tell Sophie he wants her?

Since this is so short I can't give you any more details. A bit of violence, drama, a sexy time or two, this was a good rea

Sweet read

Luke and Sophie fight like cats and dogs, but you can tell they love each other from the beginning. The way Luke left her the first time was sad, that after two years, seems like it may have been for the best. Luke does his best to fight his feelings but after Sophie's house being broken into while she was there, he can't fight it anymore and things only get better from there. Good read, thank you for sharing.

Although you know going in to this story of the end result, the journey to get there truly made this an entertaining escape. The chemistry between the two leads is smoking from the first page. A fabulous "quick read" for when you want an instant gratification with little time to spare.

This is a quick heartfelt read filled with passion, heartache, loss, lust, teasing and regret. This book is the first in the series yet it can be read as a stand alone. I'm hoping each book in the series will continue to put previous characters in the story to see if their future holds what I had hoped for them. To see the growth, healing or happiness I had anticipated.
