But as bullets fly and emotions tangle, he finds himself torn between what his heart wants and what his duty demands.
MY REVIEW -
Chicago's Best was a fun, sweet story with a bit of action, and I enjoyed it. I listened to the story on Audible, and the narrator does a good job. She is a bit too exuberant at times, and I wish her voice had different levels to fit different emotions. Kat owns a popular café, and finds herself on the wrong side of some bad guys. Ian, a police detective, is new to Chicago, and is partners with one of Kat's friends. When someone starts vandalizing Kat's café, Ian steps up to protect Kat. Kat is pretty reserved, but the 2 begin to grow feelings for each other. The romance is sweet and wholesome. They are cute together. I liked the mystery element of who was after Kat, and I liked how the story flowed. The story does lack a bit of depth, but overall, I liked it.
