Synopsis: The greater the risk, the hotter the reward…
Homicide cop Troy Bennett had a reputation on the Chicago PD for being fearless and in control—until the night his daredevil partner is killed during a raid. From that moment on, he swears he’ll never again be responsible for the loss of a loved one. To escape his demons, Troy transfers to the NYPD, bringing him up close and personal with Ruby Elliott, a beautiful, street-savvy pool hustler.
Reckless and stubbornly independent, Ruby embodies everything Troy’s avoiding, but when she walks into O’Hanlon’s Pub and blows his carefully laid plans to hell, Troy knows he has to have her—risks be damned. But there’s a connection between Ruby’s shadowed past and a case Troy’s working involving a notorious Brooklyn felon, throwing her safety into jeopardy. Confronted with his biggest fear, will Troy push Ruby away to keep her safe or fight to keep her in his arms where she belongs?
Review: This was a really enjoyable read. Tessa Bailey really has a way with sex scenes and making them hot. I really loved the banter and easiness that there was between Troy and Ruby. They had really good chemistry and it made for an excellent read (and made the almost instantaneous love bearable for me [this was nothing the author did, it’s just not something I’m a fan of.]). This was an action packed short novel, definitely not a boring moment in the 162 pages. Definitely worth the wait and another new author to enjoy!
Recommendation: Yup! Tessa’s two stories are really good and definitely worth the read.
I received an ARC of this book from the author. This in no way affected my review.
