Summary (cr: goodreads)

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? 

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Line of Duty series: Protecting What's His

I read this after finishing the 3 ESU couple stories which was wrong. I should've read this first, after all this is just a novella. The novella takes place long before Daniel, Brent and Matt meets Story, Hayden and Lucy. This is the story between Troy and Ruby one of the staple character friends in the 3 books. This is the connection between Chicago (Derek and Ginger) and the New York stories. Troy is an officer who was under Derek and wanted to escape from the death of his partner which he has guilt from. There he meets Ruby, hustler and things start from there. I liked how this is the connection between Chicago and New York though I have wanted to see Derek and Ginger's character more...especially Willa.

Till the next read...
