Review for Once Kissed by Cecy Robson - 5 bees knees!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS.COM -
Tough-as-steel cop Curran O’Brien is quickly rising through the ranks of the Philadelphia police department. But when his rookie partner is almost killed under his watch, Curran just wants to prove he still has what it takes to walk among Philly’s finest. So he’s pissed to be stuck on a cushy security assignment for the DA’s office . . . until he gets a good look at the sweet, straitlaced intern he’s supposed to protect—but not touch.
Tess Newart recognizes Curran instantly. How could she not? Back in college she tied this former frat boy to the bed with her argyle socks! That sizzling one-night stand was the only indiscretion Tess ever allowed herself. She has survived law school so far, despite being pushed to succeed by her overbearing father. Now that she’s interning on a major case against a ruthless crime boss, she won’t jeopardize her career by giving in to temptation again. She just never expected temptation to look so damn hot in uniform.
Tess knows her father has other plans for her, and they don’t include Curran. But soon she’s falling for him all over again. And when danger emerges, Curran will prove just how good a bad-boy cop can be.
MY REVIEW -
I really enjoyed this! I'd say this book is a 4 rating, but I gave it a 5 rating because I love the potential for all of the upcoming books in this series! I'm really looking forward to reading them! I loved getting glimpses into the characters that will be in the next books. I did like the set up for this book, but I would have gone with a 4 because I can't stand when characters are too scared to stand up to their parents, so I knocked a point off. I did like Tess outside of that scenario though, and I liked Curran; he was a little dopey, but I thought he was fun, and when he needed to be he turned on the alpha. Curran and Tess had some really sweet moments, and the sex scenes were steamy. I liked the bodyguard routine; the dangerous situation added some nice mystery to the story, and I liked that Curran needed to deal with some PTSD type stuff. I didn't necessarily like how Curran and Tess originally met, since I didn't really like college guy Curran. I liked how this book was in dual perspective, and I really liked how the ending developed. This is another great series by Cecy Robson! I generally really love any of Cecy's books! So I definitely recommend Cecy Robson's books!
