Summary (cr: goodreads)

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 gothy 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.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

This is the third book that I read of Tessa Bailey and the 1st of her Line of Duty series. In more ways than one, this book made me widen my eyes with all those dirty talk. Well, I should get used to it if I want to try and finish this series. Ginger is a southern native who ran out of Nashville with her Dolly Parton statue to escape the harsh reality and have a fresh start while protecting her sister Willa. She got the opportunity and the means to get out of there and she did to Chicago. There she meets a ruggedly handsome lieutenant named Derek. Like all stories of this genre the sexual tension and the attraction is definitely there. I liked parts here and there and there was this one scene at the hospital about a gunshot scare and I kind of predicted how it flows. I love Willa's character thought, her spunk and her witty remarks.

Till the next read...
