Publisher's Summary

Handcuffs aren't just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone romance by USA Today best-selling author Stacey Kennedy.

Veteran cop Maddox Hunt is all about the job. Sure, there are women - lots of women, truth be told - but there's no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O'Neil, is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her.

Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he's nothing but a distraction. Especially since he's as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.

Now that Joss is back in Maddox's life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame...but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he's set for himself. Don't fall in love.

Give me more!

From the beginning, I was hooked! This book was a great mix of Story, Love, and Sex. I felt like it had just enough of each to keep me entertained and immersed. The narration was great with Gideon's wonderfully gravelly tough Cop voice. Loved it all!

Note: I received this books in exchange for my unbiased review. This did not affect my opinion of this book.

Heart Breaker

This was the first time I had listened to anything from Stacey's book and I was hooked from the first chapter. Gideon did a fabulous job with the narration and I know I could listen to him talk for hours!

When you least expect it

Stacey Kennedy gifted me this audio book in a giveaway. Maddox and Joss share one hot as hell encounter, years later after police academy she works under him. Neither want a relationship but they can't fight their attraction. Stacey Kennedy delivers a story that pulls you into the minds of her characters and has you fanning yourself at the heat level. Gideon H Welles is the perfect voice for this book.

Great Police Romance

Maddox is a police veteran who has enjoyed his heart breaker ways until Joss comes into his life. Joss is a strong independent woman who is trying to find a new way to get through life and a new career at the precinct.

This was a great story and I loved all the highs and lows that were in this story and how it all came together

Good story, ok narration

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.

It was really hard to enjoy this book because I could not get into the narrator's voice. It sounded like I was listening to a smoker with his super deep voice and I couldn't understand what was being said at times. Also, in the beginning there were a few times where sentences were repeated.

I liked the story. It was very hot and steamy. I liked the main characters well enough. Since the main characters are in a friends with benefits relationship, I may not have gotten enough of their story. This is no way dwindled my enjoyment. I did like this book, but the narration was turn off for me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It took me a few chapters to get into this book but when I did, I enjoyed it, looking forward to the next book in this series.
Narrator certainly has a deep and raspy voice which I liked, but I think it would have been great to have a female narrator for the female characters.

Hot and Sexy Forbidden Romance!

This forbidden romance was so hot and sexy but also so charming and heartwarming, that it captured me right from the start. From the very opening scene of a passionate one night stand between 2 strangers, to the meeting a year later between superior and subordinate who never forgot that night, I knew I would love this book. Joss had endured a bad breakup where she worked so hard to be what others wanted her to be. She is determined to be true to herself with no apologizes. Maddox has his own regrets from his past and will only have one night stands, no seconds. He has been very happy with that until Joss reappears in his life. They still have fiery chemistry but try to ignore it to protect their jobs. When it becomes impossible to deny anymore, they agree to a secret affair to get their attraction out of their system. Joss knows it is temporary so doesn't try to put on any airs with Maddox. That makes Maddox only want her more, she understands him and has a way of getting him to break all his rules without trying. Maddox is so swoon worthy and Joss is sassy and independent. I loved both Maddox and Joss, they were fun, honest and were perfect for each other with their smoking hot chemistry. There were a couple twists and turns along with several fun secondary characters that made this story engaging.
I loved Gideon H. Welles deep sexy voice. He really set each scene and his inflections were perfect. It seemed like he was whispering at times, like he was letting us in on a naughty secret. There were a few production glitches but mostly it was a great performance.
This is my first book by Ms. Kennedy and Gideon H. Welles and I will definitely look for more of their work.
