She's running from the law, and the law wants her bad.
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.

"Scorching hot, and lough-out-loud funny!" (Katee Robert)
Ginger, she is just brilliant
not until this one
yes & it was
loved it gotta get me more
As indicated by the stars, this was not as expected.
Lt Derek is an aggressively dominant Alpha male who likes spanking and punishment as part of his sexual repertoire. Ginger is a Southern girl with a body like sin and she's driving his self-control to shreds.
I liked her verbal sparring but am not that keen on the spanking.
I will not be reading the follow up novel as there was just not enough here to make me curious about what happens to these two next.
The narrator was the highlight of this experience the contrast between the girls' southern drawl and the voices of the other characters were clearly and convincingly performed.
"Good book, poor audio"
Whispersync price tempted me to try a narrator I'd never heard. Wish I hadn't.
I enjoyed reading the book even though hot cop hero Derek may be a bit too much the caveman in his romancing technique. The author writes excellent banter and there were more than a few laugh-out-loud moments in the verbal battles between Ginger and Derek. Pretty good romantic suspense from a new (newish?) author I'll definitely read again.
I rated the performance one star. The narrator sounds muddy, mushy-mouthed, unprepared, and inexperienced. I suppose it's possible that this is another narrator using an alias for the naughty stuff, but she sounds very amateurish to my ear. Ginger and her sister Willa have just arrived in Chicago from Nashville. They should have an accent. And they do in a few passages, but mostly not. Actually all characters sound exactly the same regardless of gender, age, agency, or disappearing accent/no accent. Derek in the book is desirable, hot and dominant. Derek in the audio is a cypher. Overall, a disservice to a book I enjoyed.
I liked this. Obviously new writer and narrator. The story was good, with time this will be a great writer. Narrator needs to use a little more inflection. Worth a listen.
"I enjoyed the entire series"
If the audio was bad (sound track problems) they aren't any longer.
This was one of those series that I just can't enough of. I know there's one more book in this series His to Claim, but I'm not sure of it's being made into an audio book.
These are the feel good type of listens, with romance, suspense, humor, and amours (in other words HOT) scenes.
I liked them because there is a pleasant story line to each of them. Nicely that each is different than the other as well.
I would definitely recommend all four of these books.
"Protecting What's His"
I'm undecided on this book, I'm not sure if it was the story or the narration that has me undecided...
Alice Chapman did a very good job in reading the story, maybe it was the southern accent...I am no expert but it seemed off....maybe harder when it should be softer....I used to work with a woman from Tennessee and I remember the drawl being a bit softer....
While I did like this one, I had actually read the 3rd book first and enjoyed it more than this one. There was great chemistry with Derrick and Ginger and I really liked both characters, until the end where Ginger momentarily turned into the TSTL girl....if I could give 1/2 stars this would be a solid 3.5 star listen
