Meet New York's Finest-three hot brothers sworn to protect and serve the city they love . . . and the women who've stolen their hearts.
ARRESTED BY LOVE
Vincent Moretti is one of the NYPD's top homicide detectives-and one of the most eligible bachelors in town. His family, however, thinks he should date his longtime partner, Jill-a sassy, sexy, smart-mouthed blonde who drives him absolutely crazy.
Behind the quiet authority, tough-guy demeanor, and dark aviator glasses lies a man with a big soul-and a hard body that can soften any girl's heart. After years as his coworker, Jill Henley has given up hope that anything could happen between her and Vin. Besides, loving him would break all the rules. But seeing Jill with someone else triggers feelings in Vincent he never knew he had. Now he'll have to stop playing good cop/bad cop-and find a way to convince her to be his partner for life. . .
I want to start this by saying that I have not read any of the others in this series. I enjoyed this one so I will probably add them to my TBR though. This one caught my eye because of the love/hate premise of the story. I really enjoy those kinds of books. This was a bit of friends to lovers also. The hero in this story, Vincent, he was probably my favorite part of it. He has some issues but he wasn’t broken. The issues did not define who he was.
This is a great book and I enjoyed it very much. I’m glad I read it. Below is one of my favorite quotes from the book.
He believed in love. He did.
He just didn’t believe in it for him.
Not because he had any gory emotional wounds, not because he had some brokenhearted past.
He was just…he didn’t feel like other people did.
