Fans of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery will love Laura Drewry’s warm and humorous new Friends First romance, a sexy romp about a good cop and a bad girl playing hard to get.Ellie Palmer and cops don’t mix, and getting pulled over by Officer Brett Hale—again—doesn’t help. Neither does being forced to take a safe-driving course with him. Brett’s by-the-book attitude leaves Ellie ice-cold, and his rock-hard body won’t change that. Still, the more time she spends with the guy, the more she finds herself warming up to his unexpected charms.Even though Brett comes off like a boy scout, Ellie has sparked something he wants badly enough to get him to rethink his past mistakes. But when her ex shows up, Brett makes it his mission to keep Ellie safe in the here and now. His gut tells him the guy’s trouble, and Ellie must agree, because she doesn’t complain when Brett pulls her close. To keep her safe, though, he’ll have to choose between breaking her heart . . . and breaking the rules.
What I loved:
This book is everything a contemporary romance should be! The characters were realistic-no instant love, no jumping right into bed with each other, etc. Brett is just a genuinely good person and Ellie’s frustration with the police is well founded. They both grow during the book and its believable. Also, the suspense is good without being unrealistic.
What I didn’t love:
There wasn’t much. I wish Brett hadn’t left for so long, but he came back so I guess its okay!
