Adult contemporary romance
She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.
The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...
Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste.
And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.
I really liked this story. It wasn't an over-the-top erotic or alpha dominating story. It was just a story of a girl escaping from a terrible situation, raising her sister, and doing the best she could to make a life for them. They run to Chicago, and in walks their neighbor Derek. He is a very hot, dominating man who knows what he wants even if Ginger doesn't. Throw in a little life or death action and you have a really nice story. The characters are great, charming, and I became attached to them instantly. The story is well written, passion and/or emotion in all the right places, and a smooth running storyline. If this is Tessa Bailey's first book, she did a really good job. I look forward to more of this series. (especially if all her male leads are this HOT)
