Beauty and the Badge is a hot, romance taking place in a small picturesque town called Charlotte's Cove. Ashley is moving there into her grandparents' vacation cottage. Her surrogate Grandmother and next door neighbor sets her up with a job working at the local police station. The first day Ashley shows-up to work, sparks fly between her and the new police chief, Tyler. Tyler is after Ashley but has a run-in with a former fling who happens to be the town mean-girl that still continues to treat Ashley poorly. Tyler must prove to Ashley that he is only interested in her and he is going to win her heart over.
This book was steamy and sexy with good feels and a little suspense thrown-in. The characters were amazing and I was really rooting for Ashley and Tyler. I really enjoyed this first book in the series and can't wait to read the next Charlotte's Cove book. A fantastic book!
He lets out a hiss of breath, and I tense up. Crap. He’s not going to listen to me.
“Never mind. Let’s forget—”
“Stop doing that. I don’t want you to shut me out or avoid me or treat me like someone you don’t want to know,” he says, his voice rough.
My head comes up in surprise, and my eyes fly to meet his. When they do, I see he’s staring at me imploringly. The message he seems to be sending, quite intently, is don’t run away.
“I don’t want to piss you off,” I blurt.
“Babe. Please. Stop hiding. It’s fucking killing me.”
His words—specifically the use of the word babe—cause my pulse rate to quicken. He looks frustrated as hell, which somehow makes him even hotter. God, my hormones around this man are all over the place.
“Ashley,” he rumbles, his voice low. “Talk.”
I close my eyes for a few seconds to gather my thoughts—and to cut off my line of sight to him so I don’t combust. I need my wits about me for this.
