Author's Note: If you love a guy who comes with his own handcuffs and knows how to use them, then you're going to fall hard and fast for Police Inspector Gray Beckham.

Paisley McCoy is a sexy reporter who writes about the San Francisco club scene for a local magazine. Having a dad on the force has led to one hard and fast rule – she doesn't date cops. She likes her men sensitive and intellectual, two qualities in short supply in any cop she's ever met. But now she's stuck with this standard-issue cop – aggressive, opinionated, and sure he's always right. In short, the complete opposite of the kind of man she usually goes for.

Gray Beckham is a no-nonsense cop who's peeved about being taken off a major burglary investigation to babysit the captain's bratty daughter, even if she is gorgeous. To make it even more annoying, she acts like the whole thing is a joke and insists she doesn't need his protection. And while she might be sexy as hell, there's no way he's going anywhere near the captain's daughter.

Despite their differences, though, Paisley and Gray can't deny the chemistry between them. But as that connection turns into romance, they find out the stalker is a far greater threat than they had originally thought. And that if he can't have her, no one will.

Only appropriate for adults. Focus is entirely on repeated sexual encounters, without any character development, mystery, romance or suspense. The gorgeous nightclub reporter and daughter of local police chief has a stalker, so dad puts her in the protective custody of Inspector Gray, whoo then proceeds to have sex at every opportunity with the Chief's daughter, including some mild spanking and bondage with handcuffs, then more sex, in her apartment, the safe house and his mountain cabin. False suspect is arrested, stalker kidnaps her, Gray comes to the rescue. But there's not enough story to sustain any interest in the characters or what happens to them. Would give this zero stars.

This was a good read for me. It has a stalker, a sexy inspector, a sexy captain's daughter and hot steaming sex. This is my first full length novel by the author and I enjoyed it as well as entertained. It's an erotic contemporary and though it has a lot of sex it comes with a storyline. Contains graphic erotic sex and spanking. Paisley works as a reviewer for night clubs, her office was just broken into and now her home. Her father is the captin of SFPD and is concern for his daughter's safety. Paisley's father takes Gary off a stake out case to bodyguard his daughter until the burglar who turns out to be a stalker is apprehended. Gary isn't too happy about the situation but is more than willing to do it. Paisley isn't too happy either but both Paisley and Gray will surely enjoy each others company. By the first chapter you definitely felt the chemistry between Gary and Paisley. Although there is a plot to the story about Paisley's stalker, time was spent on the couples growing physical attraction. Paisely tries to get to know Gary throughout his time with her but Gary was a little closed off because of his past relationship with his ex girlfriend as she couldn't deal with him being a cop. Their sex scenes became hotter with every scene. For me personally, I'm kind of glad their sexual chemistry wasn't a build up because it would make it seemed dragged out. As for the plot when they thought they figured out who the stalker is things take a turn and there was a twist. The only thing I didn't like which is minor, even though Gary asks Paisely to marry him she said she loved him. Gary didn't say he loved her, though you sense his feelings for her as love as well. I would of loved to hear him say it as well, it makes it seem more complete to me.

This book was a little to much like 50 Shades.

God how I love a good cop story. And this meets the mark. Inspector Gray Beckham is asked to protect his boss's daughter Paisley McCoy from a robber who turns out to be a murderer. He is upset to be babysitting and especially doesn't want to babysit a spoiled brat. She doesn't like cops and sees him as bossy and demanding. As expected, the sparks fly right off and Gray doesn't hesitate to give her some good old fashioned discipline to establish who is in charge in this relationship. However, the unexpected thing for both of them---they did not expect to be sexually attracted to each other. The sex scenes are amazing and will have you squirming in your chair. The twists and turns in determining who-dunit is quite interesting. Just when you think you have guessed who the murderer is, the plot twists again. I only wish the book was longer. But this book is worth the time and money, do yourself a favor and buy it.

Protective Custody was another fabulous read by Paige Tyler. She has yet to disappoint me. In this story, we have a headstrong, very independent woman named Paisley McCoy, who father happens to be the police chief. When her father finds out that her office at work was broke into and someone tried to break into her home, he puts her into protective custody with one of his Inspector’s, Gray Beckham. Gray, was pulled off a burglary stakeout and isn’t too happy with the situation, even after meeting the Chief’s sexy daughter. What I loved the most about this book, was the fact that neither, Gray or Paisley were too happy about the circumstances, but they made the best of it. There was no drama, no game playing. Just two people making the best of it, while coming to terms with the intense attraction between them. The heat these two generated, just leap off the pages. In the meantime, the readers are given small glimpses into the mind and thoughts of Paisley’s pursuer. Paige keeps readers guessing till the very end. Well play Ms. Paige. Protective Custody had everything I needed, mystery, intrigue, adventure and romance. One hot alpha male and one strong willed female that blended perfectly. It was long enough to feel like I was getting the complete story but short enough for me to finish in one evening.

Paisley is a headstrong twenty-eight year old who writes reviews of the local nightclubs for the San Francisco Bay Beat. When her office is broken into and someone tries to break into her home while she’s in it her father who is the Captain of the police department decides she need round the clock protection and assigns one of his officers, Gary Beckham.  Gary is a by the book cop and it isn’t long before he is having to show the headstrong Paisley how serious he takes his job by putting her over his knee. These two have instant chemistry but when things escalate to murder Gary knows he needs to find Paisley’s stalker and quick before the woman he’s come to care about gets hurt.  This is a quick read that full of suspense, sexy loving and mild domestic discipline.

Paige Tyler is an amazing author, love all her books and this one is no different!  Put me in 'Protective Custody' if I can meet up with a sexy inspector like Gray Beckham! ;) Paisley McCoy is a strong willed, independent woman that likes things her way. She loves her job, and why not she gets to play while she works or is it works while she plays! Writing reviews on Nightclubs for the San Francisco local magazine has it's benefits until Paisley finds herself in a stalker situation! Will she be able to keep the promise to herself, of never getting involved with a cop when Inspector Gray Beckham is assigned to protect her?  Inspector Gray Beckham...does that have a sexy ring to it or what y'all!? Gray is the lead on a major burglary investigation and when he's pulled off this case to babysit, he's not happy no matter how hot & bodacious Paisley McCoy is...even if she has sexy legs up to her neck and it sure don't matter that she's the Captains daughter! But dang, he has eyes and can see for himself she is one fine woman... Can Gray keep this 'babysitting' detail professional or will the rules go right out the window, even when danger lurks in the shadows!?  Love the plot, it kept me guessing throughout the whole book and talk about sexy scenes that not only burned up the sheets but the pages too!  Thanks for another fabulous read Paige, keep them coming cause I want more! Cant wait for your new series X-OPS! :)
