Protecting What’s His by Tessa Bailey (Line of Duty #1)

Book description from goodreads.com

The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come…

Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste.

And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.

My rating:

4 stars

My review:

Oh, Derek Tyler.  You sexy cop you.  So, this book is about Ginger Peet, a young woman who takes care of her 17 year old sister due to the fact that her mother is a drug-addicted prostitute.  She comes home to their place in Nashville, and finds her mother passed out with a bag of cash on her chest.  She sees the opportunity to run – and she does – to Chicago – and square into her hot cop neighbor, Derek Tyler.

Derek and Ginger don’t get off to a good start, and quite frankly get on each other’s nerves.  They eventually begin to get along, and you can guess what happens from there. 

What I liked about this book was the realism.  Ginger came from a bad background and had major trust issues.  She was crazy protective of her sister, and too young to be in the situation to be her mother, but was the only mother figure she had.

I loved Willa, Ginger’s sister.  She was a great character, much wiser than her 17 years.  I liked Ginger, she was a little annoying at times, but she was an honorable character, trying to do the right thing by her sister.  And Derek was awesome, total alpha male. 

My recommendation:

Read it.
