CRIMES OF PASSION
When she was on the verge of adulthood, Riva Henneman committed a crime and got caught red-handed. Luckily, she was busted by a HOT young cop...who also had a big heart. A one-time SEAL candidate, Officer Ian Hawthorn knew how it felt to have your dreams derailed. So he gave Riva a choice: face prison time or work for him as a confidential informant. But even a get-out-of-jail-free card comes with a cost. . .
Years later, Ian still remembers beautiful, innocent Riva--and the smoldering attraction they shared but both tried to ignore. Will they have a second chance, now that they're back in each other's lives? Riva's work with inner-city children has led to a surprise run-in with Ian, who has his own agenda--one that could put them both in grave danger. Is their desire worth the risk this time?
The high octane suspense and super sizzling romance continues with Turn Me Loose, the third novel in the Alpha Ops series by Anne Calhoun.
After doing time at Fortune 500 companies on both coasts, I found myself living in the suburbs of a small Midwestern city. The glamour of various cube farm jobs had worn off, so I gave up making a decent living to take Joseph Campbell’s advice and follow my bliss: writing romance.
Seven years ago Riva Henneman's life was kind of a mess, and she made a lot of bad choices, ones that had her coming face to face with the law. Lucky for her the cop who caught her happened to be a little more understanding than most, and he made her a deal, which she reluctantly took, and it wound up helping her get her life back on the straight and narrow. She has since moved on from her wild and unruly days and become a productive member of society, even opening her own restaurant. Things are damn near perfect for her... that is until a certain sexy police officer wanders through her door! She always hoped their paths would never cross again, but fate had other plans them!
To say that Riva and Ian's relationship is complicated is a complete understatement, there are so many tallies in the cons column as to why they shouldn't be together, but for some reason fate keeps pushing them together anyhow. The past they share is riddled with hurt and misunderstanding, and Riva has a hard time letting go of of the pain that Ian caused her, and he is struggling with the fact that being with her could put his job in jeopardy. But, little by little they start to let go of everything holding them back and it opens the door for some serious fireworks!! The chemistry between these two was explosive, full of lust, passion and desire... they left me breathless and blushing more than few times! Their road to finding their happy ending is filled with lots of ups and downs, and plenty of spicy encounters... and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of their journey! Highly recommend this one, it's sure to leave you satisfied!!
