Focused and in control at all times. Most people think I’m a prick—and I’ll be the first to admit that’s probably true. But I’d rather be a take-no-shit cop than the kind of man genetics says I should be. You break the law, you pay the price. I don’t give a damn if you’re the captain’s daughter or the Queen of friggin’ England.
I have no patience for the cocky men my father oversees. Or maybe it’s just Sergeant Hardass who gets under my skin. Not only is he sexy as sin, he refuses to cut me a break. And now I have to work with the arrogant jerk.
I shouldn’t want him, but a secret part of me craves his unforgiving edge. He could give me everything I need, but, first, I have to break down his walls.
I have to make him bend.
I liked this in some ways and I didn't in others. Unfortunately, the things that didn't work for me outweigh the things that I did like.
There were a couple of things that bothered me:
1. The dialog- I was not really able to differentiate who was speaking, the dialog for Trent and Kinsey sounded the same to me a lot of the time.
2. The author has no idea how a manager of a retail store would actually run the store...at least it didn't work with the experiences I have had in retail management, so those parts of the story really didn't work for me. (An employee surprised the manager was actually working on the sales floor???!!! Calling the police when you suspected an employee may be stealing???!!!)
The second half of the book was stronger than the first, but unfortunately the dialog and character issues never completely resolved to the point where I was able to fully enjoy the book.
The sex was hot and the relationship between the 2 of them was actually good, toward the end of the book. Once they were together, and actually started to develop as characters, there was more depth to the story and it was more interesting. They also started to seem like more developed people by the end of the book.
I reluctantly recommend this book. I am not able to fully recommend it, but I am not able to fully say it is a "don't read" either.
