Lisa Jayne, Jahy, Lkay and many more all brought this to my attention on my updates. A big Thank you, Gals :D
The Blurb:
She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothic sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...

Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste. And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law

Ok, here is my take on this book.

I am not shy about liking all types of books. Sometimes I want thought provoking; sometimes something sweet with a perfect HEA and sometimes......

I want a book that is fun, snappy, very hot and sexy.

If it has the man being all into the gal; talking in her ear, telling her all about what he is going to do and how; if he shows her how he wants it...
I'm sorry I got a little carried away.... Back to the review....

This book had the verbal sexy banter with hot sex between the main characters.

Each character in this book had back stories which gave them reasons for their behavior. The male lead did have some kind of back-story but we really didn't learn that much which was a disappointment. The female though had plenty of grit, life experience yet a type of innocence, too. The sister was really well thought out and almost stole the story. There is a plot and the story moves swiftly.

All in all it accomplishes what I think the author set out to do; establish a type of book involving Cops, the women they fall for and lots and lots of Alpha possessive behavior leading up to Headboard Banging Sex.

Yup, Mission accomplished. The second book in this series is Officer Off Limits. Well, it can't be too off limits and my little click click finger is ready go. :D

destini mia Lovely review, Wendy!! Glad you enjoyed this one... and Derek ;)

Wendy'sThoughts Thanks Destini... all of you turned me on to this and if was a very steamy fast read. It would have gotten a higher score if it was so insta want, need, possess, etc. BUT IT WAS HOT

Jen Fantastic review, Wendy! I agree with everything you said, especially about the sister stealing the show. Do you think it would've worked better if it was a longer read? More time to dig into characters? I'm not sure my interest level was there but maybe?

Wendy'sThoughts I think you are right... it was bam he wanted her and she was over come with it tooo and doing sexy stuff she never had done before- I get the interest but there was just a little something missing. That being said... the banter was good; his mouth and what he would sometimes say was hot... then if you really thought about it, he was a little over the top in Macho. Or maybe i have hadn't the pleasure of that type of fella personally hahahhahahahaha

Jennifer Great review, girl!
