USA TODAY bestselling author Marie Ferrarella returns with those sizzling, law-enforcing Cavanaughs!
A lone wolf who'd prefer to work solo, Detective Kane Durant has been through six partners. His latest? A chatty, go-getter blonde he can't seem to intimidate with his killer stare-downs and deadly silence. But when they're assigned a case of home invasions in the ritzy section of town, he's impressed by Detective Kelly Cavanaugh's quick mind, her determination to catch the perp…and how badly he wants her.
With one month to prove herself to her tall, tough and sexy new partner, Kelly works overtime to crack the case—and the hardened detective by her side. But when late nights on the job lead to passion, Kelly's heart is suddenly on the line, too.
Oh, the banter, the ribbing, the jesting between Kane and Kelly... Everything ends up being a verbal match between these new partners, while they are solving a string of home invasions.
I liked both of them, Kane is more of the strong, quiet, loner. Kelly is nosy, bubbling, and talkative. What Kane is not sharing about his personal life, Kelly goes another route to find the information. She is determined to pull him into her life, and make the partnership work, and pulls him into the big Cavanaugh family fun.
The story does focus more on the developing relationship between Kane and Kelly, than the suspense and the mystery of the home invasions. The crimes committed turns out to be a great lesson in how bullying can affect people.
It is entertaining to see how Kane responses to Kelly, more and more, as time goes by. It is a fun and enjoyable story, warmhearted, and sweet, with a side of gritty crime
