My Rating: 4 Stars
A bad boy cop and a straight-laced student are about to go on the ride of their lives…
He’s the law, but she’s the one making the rules.
Graduate student Lucy wants order and predictability in her life. She always has a list to consult and a plan to execute.
Police officer Grayson wants to chase skirts and live free. He isn’t interested in being tied to one woman.
Until he meets her.
Lucy agrees to do ride alongs with Grayson as part of her thesis project, and all Grayson wants to do is handcuff her to his bed for a life sentence. Lucy isn’t so sure that Grayson fits her life plan.
Can Lucy resist Grayson’s arresting personality, or will Grayson be able to plead his case and make her his?
I had previously enjoyed the books I had read by Ashley Hastings so I knew I was going to really love this one. I may or may not have a weakness for men in uniform 😉
Lucy has a very strict rule against dating cops; she also has a list of qualities her future husband needs to have in order for there to be future dates between them. So what does she do when Grayson meets everyone of her criteria but is a police officer? Grayson uses every bit of charm he has to convince Lucy they deserve a chance. But can she overcome her fear of him getting hurt on the job?
I loved the connection between these two. The author made it so believable & I couldn’t help but hope for the best. I also really liked the fact that in this book the Hero was the one trying to convince the heroine to give them a chance; it seems in a lot of romance books it is the other way around so it was nice to see it this way for a change. This book wasn’t too long & the story was a bit fast paced so once the reader starts, they’ll burn through the book pretty quickly. I wish there was more of Lucy & Grayson because I finished this book so fast. Overall though it is a great read & I think most people would enjoy it.
