Cuff Me by Lauren Layne

This is I believe the second book in the series that I have read, and I have to admit when I was reading the other book, I was intrigued by Vin and Jill. Going into the story I knew that Vin and Jill are detectives in the NYPD and that they have a quite interesting relationship dynamic. There are times when they almost seem hostile towards each other, but at the same time they also seemed to care about each other deeply. I was pretty excited to see how these two people actually felt about each other from their own POVs. So when the book starts we have Jill returning to New York City after many months away helping to take care of her mom after her mom had an accident. She is without a doubt excited to be back in NYC, and to see Vin, but also the rest of his family as well, who have all become family to her. Only after such a long time away, thing have changed for Jill, who has taken steps to get the only thing she has really ever wanted, to be loved. I liked Jill, but then again I always have. She’s really sweet, always has a smile, she just has an optimistic feel to her. I honestly think that in some instances, where the book started to kind of slow a little Jill’s personality is what kept me intrigued. As for Vin, well he is without a doubt one of […]

He prefers brooding to flirting, reading to talking, and he sure as hell isn’t about to give into his mother’s insistence that he ‘settle down with a nice girl.’ Luckily, Vincent’s gig as one of the NYPD’s top homicide detectives keeps him busy. As does his long-time partner, Jill Henley–a tough-as-nails cop with the face of an angel and smart mouth that makes Vincent crazy in all the worst ways. After six years of working the homicide beat with the tight-lipped Vincent Moretti, Jill figure she knows him better than anyone. Which is not at all. But when their most recent case points to a potential serial-killer situation, the higher-ups send them on a rare undercover mission to a place no NYPD officer dares go: the Upper Eastside. Now the bureau’s most antagonistic set of partners is posing as Mr. and Mrs. Brooks of Park Avenue. Spending 24/7 in the suspect’s territory brings them closer and closer to their killer . . . and closer to each other. Soon Vincent and Jill are playing good cop/bad cop in and out of bed, and Jill’s falling hard. But can she convince Vincent to give her a shot as partner in life, as well as at the bureau?   BUY NOW Amazon | B & N | Google Play | iTunes | Kobo […]

Steal Me by Lauren Layne

I don’t know about you, but I love me a cop romance, something about a guy with a gun fighting on the side of justice, well it just does it for me. So this is book two in the series, and while I have no idea what really happened in book one, this book is truly a stand alone, so you don’t have to worry about being lost. This book really is one of those times where you have two very different people, from very different upbringings, coming together and giving a go at romance. First, you have Maggie, who is probably the world’s clumsiest waitress at a diner in NYC. Well hold up, let me revise that, she is really only clumsy when it comes to Anthony Moratti, who every time he walks into the diner promptly gets some kind of edible food item dumped on him. I definitely don’t think Maggie is doing it on purpose, just something about Anthony throws her off balance, and honestly Anthony is one of those brooding, 100% series types, so it’s not totally surprising that Maggie is a little off her game whenever he is in the room. Maggie, at least to me, came across as more than a little bit naive. I don’t necessarily think it was a bad thing, but it definitely resulted in a couple of instances where I wanted to shake her vigorously, especially when it came to her family. Maggie’s family, oh boy, Maggie’s family, let’s just […]
