Royal St. James got her name when she was born. Not because her mother loved her royally, but because Royal was a giant pain in the ass. She’s spent her entire life fighting to live, and the last thing she needs is to deal with some pretty-boy police officer who wouldn’t know a hardship if it came up and bit him in the…you know.
Justice Rector wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised to work hard and always fight for what he believed in. His father was a cop, and ever since he could remember, he wanted to be one, too.
It was a complete coincidence that he ends up going undercover and meeting Royal St. James. It was just one day, a single moment in time. All routine.
Just do the buy, make the bust, and get out.
But Royal St. James, aptly named, screws everything up. Royally.
All of a sudden, he has a decision to make: blow his cover and save the girl, or save himself.
Of course, he does the most stupid thing possible.
By saving the girl who most assuredly did not want to be saved.
My Review: 4 stars
Royal St. James…. What a name….and with that name, what a story.
Royal is not your typical woman. She is a welder. She is a strong female character. She takes not shit from anyone, no matter who it is (even if it is the local drug dealer)
Officer Justice is a big teddy bear. He comes off hard and tough but he had a great heart. And I think both traits made him pretty good undercover……until Royal. Royal changes everything.
Royal makes Justice break cover because he has to protect her. He just can’t let her get hurt.
This book involves an overly strict dad who is an asshole, a drug dealer, a sweet mom, some hot cops, and a heartbreaking deal,
Overall…..I enjoyed this book. I think it was a sweet read. I loved the sex scenes. I feel like Lani is getting bolder with them. I think Royal and Justice had a connection from the beginning but I like how Royal didn’t give into him immediately. There was a bit of cat and mouse with them.
