Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti's blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that's just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual.

Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby—and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband—she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.

Book Review: 3,5 Stars

This is the second installment of the New York’s Finest series, a series of standalone romances centered in family of New York City cops who are considered royalty in the law enforcement circle.

The main characters, Capitan Anthony Moretti and Maggie Walker shared amazing chemistry, I really like the relationship between them and how it develops with the right amount of sexual tension, humor, angst (just a little), and off course romance. He is a strong man and has to be in control, but apparently he just can’t keep it in Maggie’s presence. Is there something more entertaining to read than a serious man losing control by a woman? Not not me. And Maggie, I enjoyed her change from an insecure girl to the confident woman. It was nice to see the way they both overcame their past to become stronger people.

The dialogues between Anthony and Maggie, and the dynamic of the Moretti’s family, so different and colorful, are my favorite aspect of this book, it keeps you entertained through the story, Nonna’s appearances have me remembering my grandma and laughing out loud.

It was my first read of this Author and it won’t be the last, her writing is Impeccable, so fluid, and the character development is so good that make you feel like you are part of that family, so if you like a little suspense and lovely big families in your romances this is the book for you.
