As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.
Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.
It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?
Each book in the Cutting Loose series is STANDALONE:
* Falling for the Bad Girl
* Blackmailing the Bad Girl
* The Bad Girl and the Baby
This fantastic story features Detective Sergeant Nate Carter and ex-con Regan Malloy. After all they've been through you would think the intense attraction they felt for each other would have died after three years but no. It would only get more difficult.
This is a fantastic story line with great, well developed characters. A heartfelt romance born out of a most difficult situation for both of them. There were very strong emotions of being dealt with, such as moral rights and wrongs, family, loyalty and love. A much deeper story than I was expecting. Amazing! I look forward to other books in this series.
FALLING FOR THE BAD GIRL
4 1/2 STARS!
Loved this book! There was just something about the simple, raw connection between these two characters that really got to me. He was lonely and needing comfort, she was distancing herself from those she loved most and hanging adrift ... but together they felt right. It's majorly steamy, fun with a side of sass, and a pleasure to read!
Regan Malloy grew up in a family where cracking safes and picking locks was just something you learned. She didn't set out to live the life that her family did, but when faced with a friend in need, she agrees to do just one job .. and gets caught. Now freshly out of prison, she is trying to start over and get her life on track for the future that she wants ... if only she didn't keep lusting after the detective that put her away!
Detective Nathan Carter didn't forget Regan after she was locked up ... in fact, she was a regular visitor to his nightly fantasies! His life is adrift right now, and he finds himself seeking her out ... outside the prison when she's released, in hotel bars, in her bed. They agree to just get each other out of their systems ... sexy only ... but as they spend more and more time together, they actually like each other. It's crazy! The cop and the bad girl ... it can't possibly work ... can it?
Loved this book!! The fast pace of the story was great and the fine line Nate and Regan walked was intriguing making it a fantastic good guy/bad girl story. A jewel thief and a cop are truly an unlikely couple but these two pull it off beautifully. He may have been the one that got her locked up but staying away from him just doesn't seem possible. Being with an ex-con could be career suicide for Detective Nate Carter but the pull to be with her makes all the risks worth it.
This is one I think everyone would enjoy. I highly recommend it.
