The Nurse and The Hot Cop
Being the new officer on the Laurel Springs Police Department has been a blessing. They've treated me like family since the moment I started my first shift. It's what I've wanted since I left home at eighteen. Life is going amazing, especially when I meet Alisa, a nurse at Laurel Springs Medical. She's saucy, but I suspect it hides a vulnerability not many get to see.
I want to see it, want to know everything about her. In a moment where she desperately needs someone, I'm there for her.
And I won't leave until she asks me to.
I've always been a transplant, searching for a home. I thought I found it in Calvert City, instead it's the neighboring town Laurel Springs.
Since I've been here I've met the new hot cop, Archer. He makes me want everything I shouldn't.
But when the reason I left Calvert City comes back with a vengeance; I'll need him more than I ever thought.
And he'll prove he's here for the long haul - something no one else ever has.
I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is part of the series, but it really read more as a standalone as both main characters are pretty new to town. It also seems shorter than other books in the series and more novella length.
In this story we meet new officer Archer as he gets injured on the job. When he is sent to the hospital her is taken care of by nurse Alisa, who he has asked out a few times and who turned him down. But after taking care of him, she decides to give him a shot at getting to know her.
Both characters come from families who are a bit dysfunctional, and they both are really into casual sex. But Alisa has also had some issues with police officers in the past and that's her hesitancy with Archer. Can Archer charm her and get her to fall for him? What happens when trouble comes to town? You will have to read this story to find out.
This was a fast read and I enjoyed it. I loved seeing previous characters from the series come back and add to this story and help Archer and Alisa.
I felt that these two fell hard for each other pretty fast after all their comments about not wanting love or marriage. I would have preferred less drama but more dating scenes with the main characters, but I did really enjoy getting to know Archer and Alisa and loved their interactions with each other and the town of Laurel Springs.
Wow, absolutely couldn't put this book down. It was so well written with an intriguing storyline and amazing characters. Touching plot that is scary and happens in real life all the time. Both characters experienced family drama that they have to work through and realize they are not like their families. Archer is the new officer for the Laurel Springs Police Department. Alisa is a nurse at Laurel Springs Medical and left Calvert City because of some trouble. I don't want to give anything away but I will say the author writes with passion, truth and always puts her heart and soul in her work.
Enjoying the continuation of this series!
Enjoying the continuation of this series! I love that Laramie is starting to introduce new characters in this series while also giving us familiar faces from the past series and characters from there. This installment focuses on two new characters, Alisa and Archer, who have both relocated to town for their jobs and a slower pace of life. Alisa comes to town after being run out of the last one due to corrupt cops and police brutality, and while she typically turns Archer down, after he is hurt on the job, she gives him a chance and also realizes that he and his department are not like the ones from her old town. As this couple gets to know each other and establish their relationship, we see them both work to take down the corruption that Alisa had uncovered when it ends up following her to town. I loved how strongly Archer felt about Alisa and how both of them continued to stand up for the other against their respective parents, and I can’t wait to see who comes next in this series!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
