[Kame's Review]: "Officer Next Door"

Officer Next Door by Ranae Rose
Publisher: Ranae Rose (June 2nd, 2014)
Series: Lock and Key, 1
Genre: Romantic Suspense

How can anyone resist temptation when it’s right next door?

Riley County North Carolina has a lot to offer: coastal views as far as the eye can see, and men in uniform who are even more gorgeous. Home to the most notorious prison in the state, Alicia’s new hometown is crawling with men who carry their own handcuffs and know how to use them – like Officer Liam Alexander, her one and only neighbor. After catching him out of uniform, she can’t resist pausing to enjoy the show. When Liam’s Southern charm drives him across the property line, life gets hotter than the Carolina summer could possibly account for. Unfortunately, there’s a dark side to life in the coastal haven, even with an officer next door.

Coordinating special events at a historic – and supposedly haunted – plantation is enough to have Alicia questioning her senses and her sanity, but the spirits of the past take a backseat to a pair of escaped convicts who blaze a trail of mayhem across Riley County. Not even the most intense chemistry can survive the perils that make a sunny seaside town a dangerous place to be after dark … can it?

Kame's Review:

Best part about this book it that it is the start of a new series!

Liam and Alicia are perfect for each other. They do burn up the pages with a few steamy scenes, however the plot was interesting and I enjoyed the mild suspense.

Not a heavy read - but one I had a hard time putting down - I finished it about 12 hours after the ARC arrived in my inbox. (yes I ate dinner, slept, and did chores around the house too!)

Liam has two best friends that work at the prison with him, and a cousin on the police force so I see a few more books on the horizon - and I am very happy with that as with other Ranae Rose series I am sure we will see more of Liam and Alicia.

4 1/2 STARS!
