Pat's Review:

Detective Sergeant MacKenzie McAllister, known as Mack, is a nine year veteran of the Investigations Unit and very dedicated to her job as a Police Officer. This job was her life. She is known as tough, and definitely goes "by the book."  Her boss in the unit is Gary Robinson, known to all as L.T.  Unfortunately, he is known to Mack as her philandering ex-husband. They have a working relationship, although sometimes on the rocky side, but most of the time at least cordial.  Mack and her unit are working on a string of burglaries, all involving stolen BMW's.

Drew Bradley is a new officer with the unit. He is paired with Mack for his training, which she is very unhappy about. Mack perceives him as "a kid" and describes him in this way. "He looks like he should be in an underwear ad in some fancy sex magazine."  We know from the early chapters that there is a lot more to Drew than just a rookie. He is working undercover investigating the unit and it's members, for an unknown agency.  We also know that there is an immediate attraction between them, that Mack is fighting as hard as she can.

This book was a pleasure to read. It has alternating viewpoints, so we know exactly what each character is thinking. Lots of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing, and a lot of heat and sizzle.  I highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy romance with police work and intrigue.
