The Casella Cousins Novella 5: Gideon
So, crucify him for it. He doesn’t like working with women in the harsh world of police law enforcement.
She sees herself as tough as any man. Then she becomes his boss.
Hidden Cove Police Officer Gideon Casella is a hard man. A divorce three years ago still has him grumpy and out of sorts. But he’s a top cop, which is why he thinks he’ll get the promotion to sergeant that’s being announced soon.
Anabelle Sanders is on her way up the law enforcement ladder right to the commissioner’s office. But she’ll settle for one step at a time, even if she does have to walk all over Gideon Casella’s ego and his barely-concealed chauvinistic attitude. Man, she’s been dealing with men like him all her life.
It comes as a shock to Gideon that the brass gives the position to Sanders, a tough-as-nails female in the department. When he’s assigned to work on a special task force with her—under her—he’s furious at the department, at her, and at life in general.
Will these two hardened-by-life cops be able to find a soulmate in each other?

ARC for honest review with no compensation
Gideon is book 5 in the Casella Cousins series and a standalone novella but reading the prior books gives you a better understanding as you continue with this series!
Gideon a police officer gets hurt during a rescue at the end of the last book and during recovery he loses the promotion he coveted. Now back on the force and assigned to a special task force, his new boss is Annabel Sanders. These two have butted heads numerous times but there is an undercurrent they can’t deny. Will they be able to work together, keep hands off, give life and love a second chance or are they both to hardened by life?
I must say that Gideon was a bit of a mystery to me as I read the previous Casella cousins books. He seemed angry and dealt a bad hand in both his work and home life. It was easy NOT to put this book down as it was action packed from beginning to end. Kathryn Shay showed her talents as her character juggled all areas of life and make some tough decisions. I was glued to the pages till the very end. Loved reading Gideon’s story.
