Veteran cop Maddox Hunt is all about the job. Sure, there are women—lots of women, truth be told—but there’s no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O’Neil, is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her.

Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he’s nothing but a distraction. Especially since he’s as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.

Now that Joss is back in Maddox’s life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame . . . but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he’s set for himself. Don’t fall in love.

MY REVIEW

This was a first read for me from Stacey Kennedy, but if HEARTBREAKER is anything to go by, it definitely won't be the last!

I found it easy to fall in love with the characters. We meet Joss, fresh from the breakup of a 6-year relationship. She's always tried to conform to make everyone happy and is finally ready to make her own happiness a priority for a change. She wants to take risks. She wants to be adventurous. What better way to accomplish that than to indulge in her first one-night stand with the gorgeous man she meets at a nightclub?

Fast forward a year and Joss is now a rookie cop. It's all good. Everything's coming up roses. If you discount the fact that her new lieutenant is other than the hot guy from her one night stand. The man she hasn't been able to forget. The man she still wants to gorge herself on.

Maddox wasn't able to forget Joss either and although he desires her like no other, he has a hard and fast rule about double dipping. He's got some serious commitment issues. Yet Joss is easily getting past all of his walls.

This story was insanely sexy. The eroticism of it was incredibly hot. But I have to say that matters of the heart played the largest role here. It was beautifully written and I can't wait to grab more stories from this author.
