She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.Goodreads - Amazon - B&N
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.
After reading this book, the first 4 words that come to mind are,Sexy, Sassy,Alpha, and Funny! Which definitely took it from a 4 to a 5 for me. It's been a long time since I laughed so much while reading a romance novel.
Ginger and Willa leave Nashville, toting their 5 foot Dolly Parton statue and head to Chicago. Seriously girls who tote around a life size Dolly, how could they not be funny. They move in across the hall from Lieutenant Derek Tyler. Derek is hot. He knows what he wants and tells you how it is, and does what he needs to do to, to get what he wants.
Derek and Ginger have a love hate thing going on, since he is a cop, and she did help herself to Fifty Grand. While I would love to tell you if Derek's possessive nature works with Ginger's sassy attitude, you will have to check it out for yourself, no spoilers here!
