Handcuffs aren’t just part of their job...
Filthy Dirty Love #1
Releasing Jan 31st, 2017
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.
And, now they work together, and he is her supervisor, and they are trying to deny the attraction. Joss because she really doesn't want to be the brand new cop sleeping with the boss. Maddox because he is her supervisor, doesn't want to be in trouble at work...oh, and has a rule about sleeping with someone more than once. It's the perfect recipe for 2 people who decide that maybe, just maybe, the risk is worth the reward.
You like Maddox and Joss. I thought the resolution of the situation, both the work and the personal, was a little too quick and this threw off the pacing a little for me, but not enough that I was not able to enjoy the story itself.
The writing and the characters were strong and I thought they behaved as real people would, mostly. As I mentioned, the resolution felt a little rushed.
The sex was hot, his need for control was evident, and the appeal for her of letting go of her control was handled well, which also made this a great read.
I recommend this book.
