Homicide cop Troy Bennett had a reputation with the Chicago PD for being fearless and in control - until the night his daredevil partner is killed during a raid. From that moment on, he swears he'll never again be responsible for the loss of a loved one. To escape his demons, Troy transfers to the NYPD, bringing him up close and personal with Ruby Elliott, a beautiful, street-savvy pool hustler. Reckless and stubbornly independent, Ruby embodies everything Troy's avoiding, but when she walks into the pub he's at with his new coworkers and blows his carefully laid plans to hell, Troy knows he has to have her - risks be damned. But there's a connection between Ruby's shadowed past and a case Troy's working involving a notorious Brooklyn felon, throwing her safety into jeopardy. Confronted with his biggest fear, will Troy push Ruby away to keep her safe or fight to keep her in his arms where she belongs?
"With its combo of danger and delicious sex. . . . I have a new favorite author." (Cari Quinn)

Loved the book, not the voice
Loved this story by Tessa Bailey!
I really enjoyed the story, the characters of Troy and Ruby and the camaraderie between Troy and his fellow police officers.
It's a great addition to the Line of Duty series.
This was my first audiobook by Alice Chapman. Although at times it sounded a bit like she was talking through clenched teeth, I got used to her voice and I liked the distinction between the male and female characters.
I'm looking forward to listening to more of Alice's narrations of Tessa's books.
