Kate Jarrett has been around the block a few times, her life nothing more than a trail of failures. After her father dies she inherits the family bar, a place where she's accepted for who she is and loved for who she's not. Due to the location of her new establishment, a few friends from her past make themselves welcomed and death shows up at her door.

Jon Peterson is a seasoned officer for the NYPD, his record clean and eyes set on being the youngest captain in the history of the force. When his little brother Adam turns up dead at a bar in the seedy side of town, Jon's focus shifts. Is Kate involved in what happened to Adam or a pawn in a much larger game? Not interested in drama and hell-bent on justice mixed with revenge, Jon finds the one thing he never wanted - love.

Sex scenes. Overall book was a good read. Pretty mad at the ending but i guess it had to be done for more books? Anyway took me an hr to read so it is an easy and fast read. Keeps you locked in.

Although the subject matter of this book isn't to my taste the writing is still really good and the story grabs & keeps your attention. I love the main character - Kate. Her strength and how she more than holds her own in a world of dangerous and powerful men.

This book is nothing but trash. I kept thinkng a plot would emerge but it is really nothing more than porn. Pure garbage.

Just when Kate thinks her life is getting back on track with her Bar, Some Dangerous people from her past start showing up to claim her territory as their own by framing her , but this time they take someone from her that has family that won't stop hunting until they have answers as to why their loved one is gone ...and she's the first suspect on their list. If Kate works with this cop to find her friends killer will she lose more than just her life during this Crazy Cat and Mouse Game ?? Jon can't believe his little brother is gone and who ever is responsible is going down , but when he goes undercover without his partner and confronts the girl with his unanswered questions . He can't believe this Young , Beautiful woman could be the Heartless Thug that killed his brother in cold Blood ....There has to be other Answers. But once Jon finds out who's responsible and how they want to run the show , will he be able to hand over the Prize he just fought so hard to keep another man ?? This story was very intense , filled with suspense and action in and out of the bedroom . The first chapter was brutal with all the bloodshed of a young friend , that you know would be the catalyst to all the mayhem that was about to go down. I loved Kate , she is a strong woman , but has a wall thrown over any emotions she has , having to do with her heart , but when you finally see her let those walls down to feel loved by Jon for maybe the first time ever in her short sucky life's very emotional to read , especially when all the gut - wrenching pain and chaos threatens to take all their bright new feelings of maybe he loves me ..away from her forever. Jon is a fighter , a Hot officer of the law that knows how to take charge of a situation , but his mind gets clouded with emotions over finding out what happened to his brother and when you see the mess these two end up involved in , in the end of this book you are definitely going to wish you had already downloaded the next book in the series , because some Hardcore stuff is about to go down !!

Loved this book. I don't always read a book word for word but this one did. I had a hard tome butting it down.

This book is amazing and will keep you on your toes until the very end! Kate is a strong beautiful woman, who believes that she can only depend on herself. Marcus is her best friend and partner. Then something happens at her club, and she meets the hot police officer Jon. The snarky comments and chemistry between them could set your book on fire! That's not the only danger...

What a great read!! This is about Jon and Kate. The story and characters are great. Jon is a detective and Kate owns a club. Kate with with Jon's brother when he dies and Jon thinks she killed him. Marcus is Kate's partner and lover. Seth is Jon's partner, however, something is off and ends up getting what he desires to say the least. Victor is the new drug lord in town. This book is a page turner.

What an amazing story. Wow. I have read Ali's books before but this is the book that has me hooked on her writing. I am impressed by the way she wrote this, showing a continuation of the story throughout the book. Kate Jarrett, a bar owner, trying to live an relatively normal life, has her past come back to haunt and torment her. Jon, a police officer who found out his brother has been killed, puts everything he has into finding the killer. Kate loses her "friends with benefits" relationship she has with her best friend Marcus when she starts being with Jon. While Marcus and Jon try to protect the girl they love, Kate experiences a harsh reality. Let's just say that is book is not for the faint of heart. Blood Money is full of suspense and kept me guessing on the edge of my seat. I look forward in reading the 2nd book. **I received this book as an ARC from the author**

Kate had lead a tough life since running away from home as a teenager. She met Marcus and he helped her clean up her act and find her father, who left her his bar in New Orleans. They ran the club together but club rules were NO dealing drugs out of it. When young man is killed in the back alley, Kate is a suspect. The kid was the brother of Jon, a detective in NOPD. Jon and his partner Seth need to find the killer while Jon starts to fall for Kate. This book is filled with suspense, intrigue, steamy sex, and territory fighting between drug lords. I couldn't put this down and can't wait to start the next installment. Ali Parker has written a very compelling book.

This book did in fact have alot of cursing but the plot definitely made it worth while. I really need to get the next book to see if the mobster/villain in this story gets what he deserves
