Once they shared a night of passion. Now a chance encounter forces them back together. In Cecy Robson’s O’Brien Family series debut—perfect for readers of Monica Murphy and J. Lynn—two total opposites find that the flames of desire are still smoldering.
Tough-as-steel cop Curran O’Brien is quickly rising through the ranks of the Philadelphia police department. But when his rookie partner is almost killed under his watch, Curran just wants to prove he still has what it takes to walk among Philly’s finest. So he’s pissed to be stuck on a cushy security assignment for the DA’s office . . . until he gets a good look at the sweet, straitlaced intern he’s supposed to protect—but not touch.
Tess Newart recognizes Curran instantly. How could she not? Back in college she tied this former frat boy to the bed with her argyle socks! That sizzling one-night stand was the only indiscretion Tess ever allowed herself. She has survived law school so far, despite being pushed to succeed by her overbearing father. Now that she’s interning on a major case against a ruthless crime boss, she won’t jeopardize her career by giving in to temptation again. She just never expected temptation to look so damn hot in uniform.
Tess knows her father has other plans for her, and they don’t include Curran. But soon she’s falling for him all over again. And when danger emerges, Curran will prove just how good a bad-boy cop can be.

Wow! This book was filled with so much action and excitement I can barely contain my happiness! From the beginning there was something. ..just a feeling that this was going to be a good one.
I love how Tess was a bad girl for a night in her past and landed Curran lol. Then to run into him again was hilarious. I loved the nickname he had for her hahaha. She has so much crap in her life she has to deal with. He father is an asshole and a dangerous one at that. The whole time I was hoping she'd tell him where to shine his money and plans. The interactions between Tess and Curran were amusing and sweet....also at times downright sexy.
Poor Curran got a bit of a bad rep when his partner got shot. He's been having a tough time of it, and when his brother asks him to protect some woman he immediately goes on the defensive. That is unilateral he recognized who she was. Lol. ....their chemistry is very entertaining and keeps you on your toes.
I really enjoyed the book, and cannot wait to read more by this author. I'm rating it in at four stars!
