Sometimes people come into a person’s life and make their heart skip a beat.
Those people are called cops.
Well, one cop in particular.
A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department, to be specific.
The first time Avery Flynn saw Derek Roberts, she was photographing him for the first annual Kilgore Police Department SWAT calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her later.
When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face.
Well, screw you, too, Mr. February.
Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer.
She was a mousy girl who dressed like a twelve-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean Chucks didn’t leave much of an impression.
Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her? Yeah, now that caught his attention.
Too bad that happens when he’s trying to save her from what’s sure to be death thanks to an unhinged native Texan who’s convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars.
When he tries to save her, she tells him she’d rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him.
“Girl can’t catch a break, 5 stars”
Avery Flynn cannot catch a break. She has to have the worst possible luck out of any heroine I have ever read. But through it all she keeps going. Thanks to one photoshoot and a lot of random run ins SWAT officer Derek is finally starting to see Avery as more than the girl with two fallen police officer parents. When a random accident happens, he stops holding himself back from Avery goes after her. He doesn’t care about their age difference, what people will say.
Vale sucks me in with her writing. I fall into the stories like no other. Avery and Derek just worked. He’s a man’s man who just wants to take care of her and love her. Avery is used to doing everything on her own so it takes some getting used to. If this review doesn’t make you want to read Fries Before Guys read it for the title alone.
