Handcuffs aren’t just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone novel by USA Today bestselling author, Stacey Kennedy.
Veteran cop, Maddox Hunt, is all about the job. Sure, there are women—lots of women, truth be told—but there’s no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O’Neil is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her.
Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he’s nothing but a distraction. Especially since he’s as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.
Now that Joss is back in Maddox’s life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame . . .but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he’s set for himself. Don’t fall in love.
STACEY KENNEDY is the USA Today bestselling author of the Dirty Little Secrets and Club Sin series. She writes deeply emotional romances about powerful men and the wild women who tame them. When she’s not writing sensual stories, she spends her time in southwestern Ontario with her real life hero, her husband, their two young children, and her other babies: a mini labradoodle named Jax and a chocolate labrador named Murphy. Stacey is a proud chocolate, television show, Urban Barn, and wine addict. She likes her heroes in her books like she likes her coffee . . . strong and hot!
A year ago Joss O’Neil threw caution to the wind and had a smokin hot ONS in the bathroom of a bar. Now that sexy one-nighter is back and standing right in front of her in the form of her new boss Lieutenant Maddox “Heartbreaker” Hunt.
Maddox Hunt never goes back for seconds and it would be insanity to get involved with one of his rookie’s. Trouble is Mad just can’t stop remembering how it felt to have Joss come apart in his arms.
When the passion they feel for each other can no longer be denied they agree to a sex-only secret affair. But soon lines are being crossed and for Joss that can end in only one way…HEARTBREAK.
I have to say, I enjoyed the HELL out of this one. The writing was fabulous. The plot was well paced and interesting. The sex was SMOKIN’ HOT and plentiful. The side characters were interesting (bring on GREY). It even had a very sweet epilogue.
Both main characters were very likable. Joss was a really great heroine. I don’t always like heroines that are police officers because authors tend to write them very aggressive and hard, but that wasn’t the case here AT ALL. Joss was sweet and knew her mind. She was a sub to Mad’s Dom, and I enjoyed that dynamic very much.
Maddox was plain and simply HOT AS F@CK. He has some hangups, but he was always honest and upfront with Joss. These two acted like adults and communicated. Even when the inevitable climax takes place, it’s handled very maturely. In fact, it made me love Joss all the more.
Just a fantastic and enjoyable read all around and I cannot wait to see what is going to happen in the next book. Two thumbs up from yours truly.
