Review: Good Cop, Bad Cop by Lily Harlem & Natalie Dae

Fame and fortune is a blessing that, for me, has changed its taste from sumptuously sweet to murderously bitter. Leaving me no choice but to look over my shoulder at every turn and question the scruples of even my most faithful friends.

I would give up all the glowing adoration from my fans in a heartbeat in exchange for not running for my life. But fate doesn’t deal cards that way, and instead I find myself far out at sea and being bounced between two hot cops—one so chilly just his glance gives me frostbite, and the other showing a kindness that barely covers his own demons.

So with nowhere else to turn, quite literally, I have to trust two men I hardly know with my life and cope without the luxuries my status usually affords me. But it’s not long before I discover when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Turns out these cops are not only the wrong guys to mess with, they also have partnership skills above and beyond the requirements of their day job. And for once, while just being me without the frills, I get to discover that they are as sinfully bad as they are dreamily good in every department, and it seems, I am the one they want cuffed and controlled at the same time as they are protecting and serving

India Moore is a Country & Western Singer who has achieved fame, fortune, and a stalker.  After a night out with friends, she finds herself running for her life and ends up hiding on a boat.  After being discovered the next day and treated like the stowaway she is with no special treatment, she realizes she is in the safest place she could be … with a Good Cop and a Bad Cop, Jose and Dillon, whose reputations precede them in their real life roles.  The trio enjoys the R&R on the ocean blue in some new and exciting ways.

This book gives new meaning to “quick and dirty” and was an enjoyable, quick, and steamy read.  I enjoyed the plot of the book and was surprised by the villain.  I had someone else pegged in the beginning.  It should be noted there were two authors, but I couldn’t tell which one was writing what part personally, so that was great for continuity.  One issue I had was that India is a Country & Western singer, but she seems more diva from Cali who has never broken a nail instead of country girl with a great voice and a story to tell.  Considering anyone can make it in the music industry in real life, that is fine, but when you type-cast someone it should be closer to reality.  As a smut lover who loves it when sex comes together easily, the quickness of the sex and the combinations they enjoy doesn’t detract from the story or truly seem far-fetched to me.  It felt like they could have come together on dry land if that was how the story was told – the sex was believable for me and would make you wish you had stowed away as well.  With this trio, there were endless possibilities.

I look forward to reading other works by both of these authors.  I was given a preview copy in exchange for an honest review.  Definitely a great beach, girl’s trip getaway, or run from the kids for an hour or two read.
