Blurb (from Goodreads):

IS THERE A PROBLEM, OFFICER?Small town cop Sam West certainly doesn't mind a routine traffic stop: speeding ticket, stern warning, and sayonara. With a whopper of a blizzard closing in, that's all he has time for. But the lawbreaker he pulls over is anything but typical. From her mile-long legs to her razor-sharp wit, Maisa Bradley is like nothing Coot Lake, Minnesota, has ever seen . . . and she's about to take Sam on the ride of his life.

BEING BAD HAS ITS BENEFITS

Whoever said blood is thicker than water probably wasn't related to a former Russian mobster. But an innocent mix-up and rumors of stolen diamonds soon have the Russian mob taking an unusual interest in the sleepy little town-and Maisa facing heated scrutiny from a certain tall, dark, and handsome deputy. Sam's dazzling blue eyes beg her to reveal all her secrets, but how much should she tell? Getting snowed in with the sexiest lawman in the frozen north may not be the worst way to decide . . .

“Then he was striding towards his truck, tall and broad shouldered and brave and every woman’s dream.
No. That wasn’t right. Her dream. Maisa’s dream.
She was so f*cking screwed.”




This was a nice contemporary romance, and I liked the ending.

I felt quite sorry for Maisa, it couldn’t have been easy for her growing up knowing that her family was part of the mafia, and the way she knew she couldn’t have Sam, even though she wanted him, because of the unlawful things her family was involved in was quite sad.

The storyline in this had some action both in and out of the bedroom, with no shortage of guns being fired, and bad guys on the loose. Maisa and Sam created some serious steam when they eventually made it to the bedroom, and they made a really cute couple.

The ending to this was good, and I liked that we got a happily ever after.
6.25 out of 10

“You know damn well I want more than just a couple of dates. I want more of this.”
