Falling in love is easy, right? Tell that to Kate Shaw, the queen of failed relationships. Kate’s never been in love and believes she’s incapable of emotional connections. Enter Detective Daniel Murphy. Can he convince her that what they share is forever? He’s playing for keeps - she better keep up. Play It Again, Dan, Book 1 of Tess Delacour’s new contemporary romance series, will keep you on the edge of your seat with suspense and rising passion.
The moment Detective Daniel Murphy waltzes into The Dubliner Irish Pub, he knows it is going to be a good night. Music, beer, and sex are the three best reasons for living in his opinion. The first two were satisfied upon entry and the third looks promising if the singer on the stage is cooperative. Little does he know that the woman he’s about to meet, the very one he’s been admiring, will change his life forever. She’s picked up a nasty stalker and Dan is the cop assigned to her case. Lucky him.
Assistant District Attorney Kate Shaw’s first encounter with Detective Murphy consists of him ogling her backside and bossing her around. Not a stellar start. She’s carrying a boatload of childhood baggage from a youth spent in foster care and believes she is unable to make an emotional connection with the opposite sex. Men are more trouble than they’re worth and life with her music, work, and cat are plenty to satisfy.
They attempt to work together to nail Kate’s stalker but the bad guy has other ideas. Can Dan protect Kate from the threat and convince her they are for keeps? He’s a man who gets what he wants. In this case that’s the bad guy as well as the girl.

Play it Again, Dan
Fun lighthearted read. It reminded me of Jennifer Crusie's early work.
