## NOT GREAT. Never heard of this author, never heard of this series. Stumbled on to it purely by accident. The synopsis sounded so good. Action and romance thrown together is something I relish a great deal. HOWEVER, this book did NOT deliver. First off, when the book begins, it's 3 days AFTER the hero and heroine had sex. Boo. The best part of a book is the build up, the sexual tension. Well there was none. According to the backstory they had been flirting all summer. It's a shame the author didn't let us experience that with this couple. I felt like I missed a whole lot. Also, and this is HUGE for me, they had no chemistry at all. They were so bland, they could've been cousins. Definitely disappointed.

A follow up to Officer Next Door, Officer Out of Uniform picks up where the first book left off and keeps going full-tilt. For once, I’m actually reading a series start to finish and I think that it is important here. The jailbreak that played such a central part of the first story continues with this one. And while Officer Next Door wasn’t open-ended, I think that a lot of the momentum from that book continues on here. I love Sasha. She’s got a big spirit and she’s not afraid to show it to the world. She’s the complete opposite of the quiet Henry, who has had a lot of bad things happen in his life. They’ve left him both emotionally and physically scarred, but Sasha brings him out of the shell he’s retreated to. And to keep things exciting (as if the bedroom scenes aren’t enough to get your heart pumping), there is an escaped convict on the loose threatening everyone around them. It’ll definitely keep you on your toes until the last page. Full of danger and passion and a whole lot of heart, Officer Out of Uniform is another can’t miss book from Ranae Rose.

This is the second book in the Lock and Key series, and my favorite so far. Ms. Rose gives us everything that I enjoy when reading a romance suspense story. There is such a fantastic plot wrapped up in this story that I did not want to put it down. I absolutely loved the personalities of Sasha and Henry and finding out what made them who they are. The chemistry between these two people is very steamy, and when they are confronted with danger each one is determined to protect the other with their life even if that is what it will cost them. I cannot wait to see what Ms. Rose has planned for Kerry and Grey’s story in book three.  I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Bad language tiring. Plot was good.

Loved the story line and the characters but found the over use of the F-word distracting. Could have left it out most of the time and still gotten the point across.

I'm so thrilled to have a chance to review book 2, Officer Out of Uniform. Some of you may remember I reviewed Officer Next Door back in June (Wow where did summer go?) which can be found HERE. As soon as I finished that book I was longing to sink into Sasha and Henry's story because I knew it would be a real doozy and I was right. The fact that the heat level not only in the love scenes was stellar but somehow Ms. Rose built even more tension with the return of Randy Levinson, our wonderfully evil and vile villian. His return to his stomping grounds so he could go out in a blaze of glory added tension and suspense. In fact I actually had to put this book down a couple of times because it was just too much which is exactly what you want when you are reading a gripping and intense mystery and suspense romance. But let us not forget about our amazing couple, Henry is such a tortured soul that continues to carry so much of his history and baggage into his relationship with Sasha. And yet you can't help but adore the man because if he thinks it, he is unafraid to say it. This can get him in trouble with Sasha from time to time but makes for a good reflection of how many healthy relationships I have witnessed first hand actually play out. And Sasha is exactly how I see a few of my friends, charming, determined and unafraid to be completely in the moment. Her capacity with a knife and willingness to throw cation to the wind when it comes to Henry and Wolf just makes her a heroine that I can support and cheer for from my couch. For those of you who have read Officer Next Door you will see familiar characters in Grey, Kerry, Liam, Alicia, Wolf, Henry's German Shepherd and the ghostly visage located at Wisteria Plantation House. These characters have become such an integral part of this story, I live in fear that something bad will happen to one of them. But I'm still curious about all of the ghostly apparitions that play such a key role in this series. I hope we shall get a little more of the back story especially for the ghostly visage or maybe Brutus will play an even more integral role in Grey and Kerry's story. A reader can dream. Final Thoughts: I highly recommend you first read Officer Next door before you read Officer Out of Uniform but this is a perfect book to grab and snuggle into a blanket over the weekend. This story is well told and characters truly have a back story that I find believable and integral to their actions through out this story. You can't go wrong with this series. Go ahead one click it! A copy of Officer Out of Uniform was provided to me by the author and nothing else was exchanged for my honest review.

This is the second book in the Lock and Key Series by Ranae Rose...Sasha and Henry where introduced in the first book in the series Officer Next Door.  Sasha is a strong woman who goes after what she wants and she wasn't Henry. A Sassy woman who knows her way around a kitchen and how to handle a knife. She tends to be impulsive but that is what I love about her.  Henry is a former Marine who works at the prison that has many a battle scare both mentally and physically. He is determined not to lose focus and keep Sasha safe even if it kills him.  This book does leave off where the last ended in the sense of one of the escaped prisoners is back for revenge and he plans on going out with a bang. Henry and Sasha do make a great team, even when Henry thinks he doesn't need her. One of my favorite parts of the book involves Sasha running in a bikini and brandishing a kitchen knife. This book is filled with all sorts of goodies which make it my favorite so far of all Ranae's books... It has suspense, steamy parts, humor, heartache, the lady in white, nightmares, and love.

3.5 - "Your safety is my first priority, not my d**k." Stars! Officer out of Uniform is the second book in Ranae Rose’s Lock and Key series. I don’t think it is any secret how much I love this authors work, I pretty much gush over every book that Ranae releases. Fan-girling aside, I do have legitimate reasons for it, her books are always offer down-to-earth, well written, developed and likeable characters. ”I’ve never been one for bulls**t. I’d sooner hear what you really think than a lie.” Her stories don’t take in the world, and feature a cast of characters that no one can relate too, don’t get me wrong I like that type of book too. But I love that Ranae gives me characters that are human, have strengths and weaknesses, they aren’t perfect or over-the-top in anyway, but they are real, relatable and I want to spend my time getting to know them by reading the stories that she gives them. Ranae also is also very skilled in writing her men in a way that tugs at my emotions and heart strings. Whether they be emotionally or physically scarred, or just your ‘Average Joe’ going about their everyday business (although to be honest, their is still nothing ‘Average’ about any of them really!), there is just a little something about them that makes me fall in love, every time. Henry Dryden is no exception, I loved how dirty he was(another given with an RR book), but the vulnerable and slightly old-fashioned guy you get too see as the book progresses is what totally clinched it for me. ”I want to be around you whenever I can. Doesn’t matter what we’re doing. You don't have to take your clothes off to get my attention. All you have to do is look my way. Exist.” Sasha is your typical ‘balls-to-the-wall’ type of girl, I loved that her vibrancy and confidence pulled Henry out of his shell, bit by bit, and how that together they seemed to bring out the best of each other as well. Being Head Chef at the Wisteria Plantation House Restaurant – Harvest @ Wisteria, you get to see more of the goings on in and around the house, as well as the elusive ‘lady in white’. And although Liam and Alicia from the first book are a part of this story, I liked that it didn’t detract too much from the developing relationship between Henry and Sasha. ”I want to spend the next hour inside you, and the whole night beside you.” The prisoner escape from Riley County Prison is very much a part of this book, as it was with Officer Next Door, and because of that I would recommend that you read this series in order, although you are given plenty of back story, and flashbacks in this instalment, I think the development of the series as a whole works better if you read book one first. Another winner, another BBF to add to the ever growing list! I can’t wait too see where Ranae takes us next with the Lock and Key series, when Grey and Kerry get their book.
