Disgraced cop Henrik Vance is having a shit year. Banished to a derelict undercover squad, he’s been tasked with hunting down the daughter of Chicago’s most dangerous criminal. His obsession with saving the beautiful girl destroyed his career. And this time, it might cost his life.
Ailish O’Kelly doesn’t need a hero. She’ll save herself from her father’s violent criminal dynasty, thank you very much. Unfortunately, the sexy as sin cop who crashes her hideout isn’t hearing reason—especially not after the kiss that becomes much more.
His boss wants her as an informant. Ailish wants Henrik to keep whispering filthy things against her skin. But she knows too well the evil they’re up against, and when it comes down to protecting the man who owns her body and soul, she only has one choice…
DON’T MISS THE OTHER BOOKS IN THE SIZZLING CROSSING THE LINE SERIES….
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.
Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
The steam pouring out of my kindle is entirely the fault of Henrik (have my babies) Vance. I honestly didn't know whether to keep reading or take a "break".
I thoroughly enjoyed Henrik's aggressive and large "presence" combined with Ailish's innocent nature you have some smoking chemistry.
He's a disgraced cop. She a mob boss' daughter.
He needs her to trust him. She trusts no one.
Looks like his job is going to be harder than his...
Henrik can't explain the unnatural urge to be in her presence. he can't explain how hard he gets thinking of her. She said maybe 10 words to him, not even seductive words, and he gets hard thinking about it. Yeah, he's definitely in trouble. But he will make sure she never is.
Ailish has been the protected, shuttered prisoner for too long. She longs to be free. When the police let her go, she ran like a bat out of hell. She didn't stop except to collect some money. On the run and hoping to atone, Ailish is trying to stay one step ahead of her father.
When they meet again, Ailish has to decide if Henrik can be trusted. She has no idea what he's done to protect her, but she can't help doubting him when he never lets her in. Trust needs to be cultivated and Henrik doesn't seem to get that. So where does it leave them? When will they trust each other enough to get out alive?
It was a great read and is encouraging me to go back to the beginning. As the final in this series, Raw Redemption can still be read if you haven't read any of the others.
