When Officer Rick Boyd answers a call about a peeping Tom, he doesn’t expect to find a gorgeous woman holding the binoculars. But Gina Silvano’s no peeping Tom, and she can catch her cupcake truck’s kinky vandals herself, thank you very much. No sexy cops required.
No matter how hot their stakeouts, by-the-book Officer Boyd can’t see a future with a dangerous, rule-breaking wild-child who despises the law. He’s never felt more alive, though, and expunging her from his heart might be impossible.
But loving each other might cost them more than they are able to give.
Opposites definitely attract in this humorous romance about a By-The-Book cop and a No-Rules-Apply baker.
This is a troupe I adore, when it's done right and the characters clash in every way except when it comes to attraction. Ms. Archer did a superb job of making sure Rick and Gina were as opposite as possible then made the attraction between them too explosive to ignore.
But that wasn't the selling point for me. It was their individual acceptance of what was happening between them wasn't going to stop just because they had a few hills to climb. Their acceptance of each other, their differences, made the chemistry between them a hundred times more combustible. Isn't that what most of us in life want? An attraction to someone that doesn't fade but grows stronger?
That's Rick and Gina.
This is a laugh-out-loud story, one that is surprisingly deep and evocative. It's not dark or particularly angsty but lighthearted, sweet, and fulfilling. It made this reader smile and laugh and hopeful to read more stories like this from Ms. Archer.
Kira Archer resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kiddos, and far too many animals in the house. She tends to laugh at inappropriate moments, break all the rules she gives her kids (but only when they aren’t looking), and would rather be reading a book than doing almost anything else. She has odd, eclectic tastes in just about everything and often lets her imagination run away with her. She loves her romances a little playful, a lot sexy, and always with a happily ever after.
