Protecting What's His ( Line of Duty #1) 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.

Protecting What's His (Line of Duty, #1)
5 of 5 stars false
She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.
The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...
Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste.
And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.


This book was seriously sizzling.
I am probably not going to be able to do it justice, but I am seriously going to try because I think this could be one of those books that people pass by and I beg you, don't! Read it!
Ginger Peet is our main female character and what a lady.She is 23 and because of a drugged up, prostitute mother she has been taking care of her younger sister, Willa, her whole life.
They finally get the courage up to leave when they find $50,000 dollars belonging to there mothers drug dealer lying in the house. They take the money and run to Chicgao where they meet Derek Tyler and the pursuit begins.
I loved Ginger, she is comes across as this really confident girl, very assured of herself, but what she really is, is a survivor. The banter between her and her sister was hilarious, but unlike some books where the humour can get to much, it didn't feel false or contrived.
I felt really connected to these characters in a really short time, the book isn't long, that has got to say something about the authors ability to create wonderfully real characters worthy of our time.
Derek is another great character, he is a cop, a protector, a totally hot, jealous, alpha who brings a whole new meaning to " Protecting What's His" . I loved him. He wanted Ginger from the beginning and went after her with cocky, single mindedness. His bluntness was all we have come to expect and more of a bossy dominant character. The words this man came away with , phew!!
"Point taken. But one more thing". Derek leaned forward, resting his hands on either side of her on the counter, then dipped his head lower. Ginger's mind reeled as he ran his tongue upward in one long like of her neck. " The longer it takes me to get between your thighs, the rougher I am going to be when I finally get there. Understand?"
Like I said above this is quite a short book, but it is easy to read with what must be perfect pacing and execution. For all the length of this I was totally sucked in, the storyline was interesting and I felt a connection to these characters, I wanted their happy ending.
Sometimes the simple things really are the best and I don't mean that as an insult, totally the opposite. This is quite simply a very enjoyable romance book and I don't have a single complaint. I will be recommending this to all my romance book, alpha loving friends.
