Officer Off Limits

Line of Duty, #3

Story is a good girl and frankly is just sick of it. She’s suppressed her personality for her fiancé and when he calls it off she’s like a released prisoner. When she goes to New York to see her dad in the hospital she finds herself drawn to Daniel, her dad’s partner. He’s got bad boy written all over him and she’s ready to lick it off. Is it rebound attraction or the real thing? She’s determined to keep it light but some things have a mind of their own.

Daniel is the textbook example of man whore. Is there a woman he hasn’t slept with? He’s reaching the age where he’s getting tired of the game he’s been playing and when he meets Story she makes him face his motivation for his behavior. He also has guilt for pursuing her despite her father’s warning to stay away. Their attraction is intense and Story can’t understand why he’s resisting her obvious willingness. Neither does he.

This is book 3 in the Line of Duty Series and I hope it never ends. These are upstanding men who attract and are drawn to strong women. And they talk oh, so dirty. Alphas in the bedroom as well as in life, they are also caring and protective. Daniel is the latest to fall victim to cupid under this author's pen and I couldn’t stop reading until the end. A good story although the ending felt a little contrived and the bad guy not as intense as those in the previous books. The romance between Daniel and Story was top notch though and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Book Blurb for Officer Off Limits

His need to possess her is non-negotiable. Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn't bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.

Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.

Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel's already forbidden relationship survive?
