Nothing but Kayla’s fingers and not-so-trusty vibrator have given her an orgasm in almost a year, and the one man she’s hell-bent on breaking her losing streak hides behind his badge. Detective “Hottie Pants” Ford thwarts her every attempt at seduction, and even though vandalisms, a trashed apartment, and physical assault keeps throwing them together, he refuses to attempt a relationship ever again.
She sees past his facade into the man hiding his pain behind unbreakable rules and inflexible conditions, but even after the fiery chemistry between them ignites, she struggles to prove to him she is nothing like the woman who jaded him for life.
Heartbroken, Kayla decides on a vacation to help her peace of mind—and ends up at Sandy Ridge. With danger hot on her heels, can the man she turns to first recognize Kayla for who she is? Will he give her the chance she needs to let him know she wants him without condition, before it’s too late?

~ Detective Hottie on the scene ~ When Kayla met the lead detective overseeing her case, she could not get him out of her mind. Jacob Ford was definitely delicious enough for her to commit him to memory and create works of art to sell at her gallery. If only the man himself would take her more-than-obvious hints. There would be nothing Jacob would like more, but it would involve him revisiting the demons he thought he had control of. But when Kayla finds herself the victim of more targeted vandalism, he just could not make himself stay away from her any more. This was a nicely paced hot and steamy read! I felt the same frustration along with Kayla with the walls Jacob had put up, but want and lust paved the way for them to both open up to each other. Not to mention that what drew them together was nicely resolved.
