“Robson’s O’Brien family has the hottest brothers ever! . . . It’s impossible not to keep your fingers crossed for an HEA, but the author knows exactly what she’s doing as readers hold their breath during this roller-coaster ride of passion.”
—RT Book Reviews

Once they shared a night of passion. Now a chance encounter forces them back together. In the O’Brien Family series debut two total opposites find that the flames of desire are still smoldering.

Tough-as-steel cop Curran O’Brien is quickly rising through the ranks of the Philadelphia police department. But when his rookie partner is almost killed under his watch, Curran just wants to prove he still has what it takes to walk among Philly’s finest. So he’s pissed to be stuck on a cushy security assignment for the DA’s office . . . until he gets a good look at the sweet, straitlaced intern he’s supposed to protect—but not touch.

Tess Newart recognizes Curran instantly. How could she not? Back in college she tied this former frat boy to the bed with her argyle socks! That sizzling one-night stand was the only indiscretion Tess ever allowed herself. She has survived law school so far, despite being pushed to succeed by her overbearing father. Now that she’s interning on a major case against a ruthless crime boss, she won’t jeopardize her career by giving in to temptation again. She just never expected temptation to look so damn hot in uniform.

Tess knows her father has other plans for her, and they don’t include Curran. But soon she’s falling for him all over again. And when danger emerges, Curran will prove just how good a bad-boy cop can be.

As always a thank you goes out first to Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

Though I expected a bit more action at the beginning of this book, I have to say that it was fantastic. Yeah I know strange way to start a review for a book you loved, but I guess I have come expect a certain type of character from Cecy Robson, and well kind of wished I’d see it again… though Curran isn’t a pansy in anyway and completely shows his male macho, but he isn’t like  Mateo or Killian… and well it through me off a loop. Curran shows such a sensitive, protective side to himself that it was a bit of a shock to see how his family reacted the first time they got to spend time with Tess. My heart hurts for Curran and the situation he is dealing with, as the sister to a cop I know they see a lot of stuff that isn’t easy for them and to have a character show the guilt he carry’s was especially eye opening. Now Tess… man what can I say about this young lady who is stronger than she gives herself credit for. She is a fighter, she works so hard to get out of the grip of a twisted, sick father. The things that she has to deal with are so hard, because it is so true even though there is no physical evidence or scars, the emotional ones are deeper. I was so glad I started to read this book during the weekend because that meant I didn’t have to be interrupted by work to read it. I don’t think I could’ve handled the distraction of work thats for sure. Im a bit sad to have finished it but look forward to the next book in this series, because really you don’t just fall in love with 1 character or the main ones, you fall in love with all of them. Have been since the Shattered Past Series.

I give this book 5 protective kisses…

Happy Reading… Adri
