Getting locked up had been easy. But for K-9 Sergeant Jamie Pataglio, going undercover at a maximum-security prison—and infiltrating the Mancusco crime family—was the hard part. Now, six months later, Jamie’s been accepted as one of the mob’s own, and he’s walking out of the gates as a free man…and stepping into the criminal underworld. There’s only one small, gorgeous problem: Bella Bianco.
The Italian bistro used to be Bella’s pride and joy. Now it’s become a nightmare, where her violent family uses her restaurant as its criminal home base. Guilty by association. She needs to find a way out, and fast. The last thing Bella needs is an attraction to their newest “associate”—even if every moment alone with him leaves her breathless. It’s almost enough to make her reconsider her “no mobsters” policy…
They can’t trust each other. But if either of them ever wants to break free of their circumstances, they don’t have a choice. They’ll have to take down her family. And if anyone finds out they’re working together…they’re both dead.

Gawd I cried so much reading the last two chapters I couldn’t see the pages.
Heart wrenching following “Jamie’s” story. I was so curious as to what he was about.
I rated 5 star yet this was my least favorite book in the serious but my FAVORITE dog. Their relationship was amazing.
I found I always go back and read the last couple chapters again every time I finish this authors books.
Tee is my one of my top five favorite authors. She can make my cry, laugh and swoon throughout her books.
Best series ever. I’ve reread all her books multiple times.
As all T. O’Fallon books!
Above ’N’ Beyond
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I just LOVE this series. The alpha K-9 men along with their dogs are federal agents. The series follows the group as they meet their significant others. The stories are just filled with suspense and intrigue while we watch the characters also fall in love.
This is written in a dual POV format. Getting both main characters really help me to better understand and connect to them. It makes for a more enjoyable read for me.
Take one undercover federal officer (Jaime a/k/a Jimmy) to infiltrate the mob. Then add in a heroine (Bella) determined to wrestle the controlling interest of her bistro away from her awful aunt who just happens to be the “Godmother” of the local mob!
Can Jaime figure out who all of the parts are to the mob? What is the “big job”? Is the sexy restaurateur a member or just a casualty do to being a family member? Can Bella finally get her restaurant away from her aunt? Can Jaime and Bella trust in each other to take down the evil?
I adored reading this book. It is written in my favorite dual POV format. Seeing into the characters' thoughts really humanized them and drew me closer to them. The plot was very well written. I could picture the scenes as if I was watching a movie.
This is a sexy book so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under the age of 18.
