Title: Falling for the Bad Girl
As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.
Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.
It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?

Loved this book!! A contemporary romance that shows some risks are worth taking.
As the blurb states, Detective Nate Carter put Regan Malloy away for a diamond theft. The merchandise has never been recovered. During the trial, Regan and Nate felt an attraction that went beyond ordinary. After Regan serves three years in prison, Nate and she hook up. After one night of unbridled sex, they know it can’t be just the one time, so they embark on an adventure of no strings sex for one month. Both think that should be enough to drive the other from their system. But as the month progresses, uneasiness creeps in and neither wants to think of the end approaching!
Believing any type of relationship just would not work, neither know how to contain their feelings. Nate is a detective and Regan comes from a family of known thieves. That’s a recipe for disaster. Even since Regan has gone clean and has opened her own business of cracking safes and software-but for the good guys, she still feels putting the cops anywhere close to her family spells trouble with a capital T! But she also knows that what is developing with Nate is quickly becoming something she doesn’t want to give up. She just can’t. But how can they make it work?? Nate feels the same way. He knows he’s breaking all kinds of rules and his work partner has cautioned him. He wants him to be smart. But he can’t see letting Regan go any more than she can him.
This story was a good mix of steam and sweet. I liked both Regan and Nate. Their situation is a complex one not unlike real life. I think that’s why it was easy to read and to recognize their struggles. Nina Croft does a great job of making us feel we are actually in the story with clear but not overly wordy details. Everybody is believable and their actions are acceptable. I enjoyed the differences in the families they came from and the dynamics of how they sculpted the couple into who they are now.
Definitely a page turner, grab this one and prepare to settle in with Falling For the Bad Girl. The journey is fast and oh so intriguing.
